It has been a rough winter in Santa Barbara. From the Thomas Fire to the mudslides, everything has been turned upside down. We have not had rain since the slide and with warmer than normal temperatures, it certainly doesn’t feel like winter. Although it is only the beginning of February, I was feeling the need for a bit of color and to lighten things up both aesthetically and emotionally.
As all of you know, I don’t do a dark winter palette. I incorporate lots of texture and neutrals for a cozy feel with throws, fur pillows and shearling.
I literally have closets filled with throws and pillow covers so that I can change the decor when the mood strikes me. I still kept a light palette, but with hints of aqua and greens. And of course, the sea glass takes center stage once again!
Just a few small changes can change the mood and feel of a room. Happy Spring! Next I’m going to tackle my outdoor spaces. Stay tuned…
