Bright yellow flowers add a much needed pop of color to this neutral living room. They bring a freshness and a sense of elegance to the room as well.
Using the same color in other ways around the room helps to bring continuity and balance. The matching yellow pillow in the photo illustrates this point. You could do the same thing using vases, books and other home accessories.
Pale pink flowers, pink walls, pink home accessories. Perhaps it's time to give pink a try. You may have shunned it once for being too girly. ut first consider these 4 reasons I love pale pink!
1. Pale pink is a neutral. Darker pinks can look juvenile and too sweet. My bedroom is painted a pale pinkish lilac. I used black accents to ground it. It makes the pale pink look feminine, but not over the top. Brown, white, gray, and ivory also look great with pale pink.
2. Pale pink is soothing. It's barely there. It has the impact of a pale color without the fear. My most favorite color scheme is a mix of whites. It is so comforting, but a tad hard to maintain. Pale pink is a bit more forgiving. I use it quite a bit at Fly Me To The Moon Florists.
3. Pale pink is timeless. Various shades of pink will come and go, but the palest pink never goes out of style. Flowers come in a whole range of pale pinks. The color is especially pretty in linen, cotton and even velvet. A well-cut pale pink dress exudes class and confidence.
4. Pale pink is sophisticated. Think of crisp linen napkins and tablecloths for a luncheon. This pale pink flower arrangement is simply elegant.
White and gold are the colors I've decided to use to decorate our shop and window for Christmas this year. Well actually, it will probably be more of an off-white and gold. I usually use more traditional colors, but white decor is so elegant.

January is when I ordinarily do the white winter theme at Fly Me to The Moon Florists, but it's time for a change. I'll be looking for a new concept for my January window in case you have any ideas.
The Christmas decor should be completed by this time next week. I'll post some pictures. Wish me luck!
What colors will you be using to decorate this year? And what theme should I use for January? Help!
