Prime Time

Maybe it’s the abundance of red you see this time of year, but all of a sudden, a few images I found featuring the deepest of blues and the brightest of yellows seemed perfectly complimentary to all the holiday crimson. Nothing like a shot of primary colors to brighten up the day.

PS — Several exciting guest posts to share with you today! Gabrielle, from Savvy Home (who I also like to think of as a real life friend, given the number of emails and gchat sessions we’ve had), asked me to participate in her wishlist series while she’s enjoying her holiday back home in Canada. Check out what I’m wishing for over here! Yesterday, I also shared my favorite holiday tradition on Lauren’s blog L.A. in the Bay. And finally, I’m thrilled to be participating in Paloma’s Dream Home series on La Dolce Vita. Like so many of us, Paloma’s blog was one of the first blogs I ever started reading so I totally did an excited happy dance when she contacted me. Go see my dream house here!!

    wow, CONGRATS on all of your amazing guest post opportunities! That is amazing!

    The primary colors are awesome! I would wear them, except for my mother has told me from a young age that I should never wear primaries with my coloring… Maybe I’ll opt for them in my home instead!

    I know the feeling! It’s really strange how much color I’ve been wearing this fall/winter. All my black clothes are feeling neglected!
