A special delivery arrived at my front door last week (more on that later) and it came in the most beautiful jewel-toned hues. It just so happens that the colors include all of my favorites… all of them, really! So naturally, today’s Color Study post was inspired by that. My Design*Sponge hardcover book has been patiently waiting on my coffee table since I first purchased it more than two months ago! With the arrival of my new wool rug, I’ve finally started scouring it for design inspiration. I was also gifted a beautiful set of blue and white china teacups (thank you dear Mandy!) for Christmas. All in all, I love the combination of vibrant, saturated tones beside a clean, crisp pattern. The result is an interesting mix of old and new, bold and refined.
