tempting TEAL...with a side of marvelous MUSTARD

Hello friends, 

I have a couple of "summery" blog posts all ready to go, but earlier today, when I was sorting through my considerable yarn stash and thinking ahead to fall knitting projects, I felt inspired to share one of my favourite colour combinations - teal and mustard. Typically, I am not as drawn to rich jewel tones as I am to more subtle pastels, but this vibrant pairing is a definite exception. I love the saturated depth of teal, as well as the inviting warmth of mustard. 

Here are some fabulous images of this striking colour duo: 

I think that a cozy cowl knit with these gorgeous yarns would be a fabulous fall project.

This outfit is super cute!!! I love the idea of belting a cardigan. Fall we come!!!

I know, I know, I am a bit of a yarn junkie, but how fun are these knit pillows/poufs?

Here, playful patterns and interesting textures work nicely with organic elements (bamboo blinds, hardwood flooring, starfish, hand-cut tulips) to create this restful space.

This image is "squeal-worthy!" I am in love with this perfect blend of mid century modern meets vintage thrift store! And, check out the beautiful contrast between crisp whites and calm neutrals with our bold, jewel-toned palette of the day.

How pretty is this mood board created by the talented amykathryn? I especially love the styling of the lamp vignette.

But, if you are like me, and have (on occasion) difficulty committing to a lot of intense colour in a particular space in your home, fear not - the inclusion of small "pops" of pattern and/or colour here and there may just do the trick. 

Try bringing any of these teal and mustard accents into your space for immediate impact: 

Dandelion Pillow from Etsy

Carnival Art from Etsy

Teal Gourd Lamps from 1stdibs

Mustard throw from Amazon

What do you think about this dynamic duo? I'd love to hear from you! 

Try to stay dry on this dark and rainy evening,
