The popularity of an all neutral FARMHOUSE DECOR is not too far away from our farm homes of the past. . .Most kitchens cabinets were painted white. . .Often the living room and kitchen walls were also in a neutral tone. . .Bedroom walls usually broke away from the white theme and opted for colors such as candy pink, mint green, and denim blue. . . A house totally in neutrals was rarely the case as it is today. . .
Let's face it, life on the farm was and is hard work. . .rewarding but demanding and endless. . .The average farm wife loved color. . .bringing CHEER and a SMILE. . .Maybe that's why I, too, enjoy POPS of COLOR for our FARMHOUSE . . .
I was playing with the pegs one day last week. . .working toward a Spring and Summer look with the new HEART wreath I found while junkin'. . .I like the all white theme. . .lived with it a few days. . .then decided I needed a little color. . .It looked a little bland to me. . .I was inspired by the lovely plant, too. . .
LOOK HOW ADDING A LITTLE COLOR MAKES THE EYE LINGER IN THESE BEFORE AND AFTERS. . .
There are no rules that POPS OF COLOR must to be flowers. . .
How about a GREEN CABBAGE?
This garden rabbit needed something to nibble on. . .
Cabbage? . .I can hear you shaking your head. . .Sure. . .Why not? . .
With a couple of other additions. . .the VIGNETTE comes to life. . .
The thing I've learned in all these years of blogging and decorating the FARMHOUSE is that NEUTRAL BACKGROUNDS work well in any season. . .It contributes to a CALM and PEACEFUL setting. . .but every now and then I need a little more SPICE IN LIFE. . .Not too much. . .Just enough to make me SMILE. . .
