Green was my grandmother’s favorite color. I remember her green afghan across the back of her couch and her green fiestaware dishes. I painted this rescued chair green and gave it a vintage faux finish. I love how the green looks saturated in some places, and softly worn in other areas. So many shades of green to see.
Green looks wonderful near red. As they say, opposites attract. How can I keep them apart? It so happens that the green-red color-play is one of my best techniques in using color. Let one be vibrant, and then bring in the other in a soft way. The hooked red rose in the chair pad is set off by the subtle green of the leaves. And the whole hooked piece looks so at home on the green chair. My green chair is lovely near my red wool shelves. Sometimes moving colors around, and putting them together can be the creative journey of the day. I find it inspiring today.
Have a colorful day ~ Karen
