I’ve heard of color schemes inspired by nature. And my favorite paint colors seem to unconsciously mimic foods (my plans for a light golden wheat kitchen somehow turned into banana cream pie – or lemon bar, I’m not sure which).
But I love the muse of the homeowner featured in this month’s Better Homes and Gardens – a mint green 1930s shake mixer.
You know how that creamy Jadite color looks so at home on the shelves of a vintage kitchen? It also looks great on the walls, tiles and wainscoting – especially when coupled with cool, crisp white.
It makes sense to incorporate the shade of something you know and love into your home’s decor, whether it’s part of your antiques collection, your wardrobe or even your most-used household appliance.
Come to think of it, my bright yellow walls do kinda match my KitchenAid mixer.
Anyone else ever matched your color palette to something specific?
