Welcome to my first post in a series of colour combinations. A crazy busy week has meant that I don’t have many photos to show you today. Hopefully I’ll be a bit more organised next week. Today I have chosen red and mint green. This is the colour combination I have on my art wall in the lounge room. I think they look great together. I love the contrast of the cool, fresh, green with the hot, loud red.
In a mainly red display, the mint green vase adds a hint of interest. The large vermouth bottle was a side of the road find, and the mint vase came in a mixed bag of small items I bought for $2.00 at a thrift store. The cabinet used to be dark brown, until I gave it a makeover with gloss red spray paint.
Here’s a eclectic mix of thrifty finds. A $2.00 scarf, a shot glass I got for free when I bought some drinking glasses at a vintage market, a framed butterfly with a hint of mint green on it’s wings – an inexpensive market find, and an artwork I made myself with pages torn from an old dictionary.
I bought these beautiful glass christmas decorations half price in the after Christmas sales. I think they look great all year round. Here they are adding a pop of colour when displayed on a cake stand, and also piled into a decorative jar and displayed with a group of other treasures.
And of course, my mint green cabinet in the entrance hall is a perfect display area. I’ve hung red and mint green art works, including a red post card and a green birthday card that I kept. The large metal letter S was a half price find.
I hope you agree that this combination is a winning one. I’d love to hear from you if you have a colour combination you’d like to see here. I’m always open to suggestions.
