Welcome to The Colour Challenge linkup!
I admit, my own colour additions are small and simple. I simply didn’t have time to actually paint something big, plus I’m still feeling my way around vibrant doses of all things fun, so I made my changes easy.
The muted tones of nature added a whole different flavour to this little rustic vignette. I LOVE it now!
The pretty aqua basket was my mom’s.
It’s simple, provides an awesome function, and serves as a gentle reminder of one of my best friends.
Next up, the main bath got hit. Pinky swear, I did NOT remove colour in order to get this colourless pic. 🙂
A beautiful hand done original painting by The Old Post Road steals the show in this little bathroom corner! A simple crate becomes the perfect rustic frame to accompany a picture holding alot of deep meaning for me.
Have you visited The Old Post Road’s Etsy shop before? Trish’s work is so bright and cheerful! And I can vouch it’s even prettier in person. 🙂
Nature helped me out next.
I realize the colour you are seeing here is very subtle. Baby steps, people. 🙂 But even the tiniest bit of colour made a big impact in these zones. When more time is on my side, I can’t WAIT to push this colour thing a little further!
Ok, here’s one more. My son and I escaped this weekend to a lakeside resort as part of a contest win I had. (I’ll be sharing the details soon!) I shot this picture just today at Harrison Hot Springs, BC Canada. Doesn’t the colour simply complete the picture here?
Inspire me to really get it, my colour loving friends!

I have a thing for those torquoise mason jars myself. 🙂
I love that photo of the clothes hanging and the yellow flowers in the back ground. I bet your trip was great! I can’t wait to see those photos.
Too fun! I have to remind myself to do this too! I get stuck using a lot of neutrals! 🙂
lookin good as usual Donna…you created a new coffee table or my memory has gone south? Hope you and your son had a blast on your weekend
This is fun but I really can’t participate. I have probably too much color already. Everything I do has to have pops of color, especially red. I don’t think I have anything lacking color that I can change. It will be fun to visit all of the other links and see how others are using color.
Donna – Love how you placed the painting in the crate! What a great idea! Thanks for the mention!
Im in love…with your blog!
My sweet friend Michelle from Emerald Cove told me about your blog…I tthink I might have seen your blog at one point or a photo from there because I have a photo of your entryway with the barnboard and the hooks that Michelle and I both love!!!
There is so much to look at here and Im having a blast!! lol

I really, really like the painting in the crate! I’m a sucker for art. Thanks for hosting. 🙂
I love your little touches of color! The shutter beside the bathroom window is GENIUS. I seriously LOVE it! And ahhh the basket from your mom – what a nice little reminder!
Subtle, YES. But the impact is HUGE!!!!! It’s lovely!!!

Thanks for all the linky fun here all weekend, even while you were away!
I’ve driven past the Black Forest restaurant many times… always love how perennial that happy little spot is along the way.
Love the shutter you made… it’s fabulous!
Donna, I just adore your decorating style! I love the way you added color because in your neutral environment it really makes the colors stand out so they can be enjoyed more. If only you lived closer and could help domestically-challenged me!
What a nice post…All the images inspire me to try some paint projects and be more creative and adventurous in coloring my world.
I so enjoyed this post Donna. Those pops of color were just enough to make a great addition to your already fabulous spaces. Any so easily changed as well. Love this post and was way inspiring. Now to find the time to execute some of this beauty.
I LOVE the punches of color in your spaces. The aqua basket looks lovely. Keep it coming. 🙂
Oh what a lovely colorful post! Sometimes a little bit of color can go a long way! I totally dig the yellow daises! What a cheery window! Beautiful job!
Hey neighbor! Hope you had a great time at Harrison! It’s funny, we just bought a gift certificate tonight to send my in-laws there for their 25th anniversary!
