Sets of Things in Different Colors

May 7, 2010 § 1 Comment

Mr. E likes groupings of different colors. Like these quilts:

Lattice Quilt

A lapquilt that Mr. E sewed for his sister.

Flying Geese Quilt

A queen size quilt by Mr. E was made as a wedding present.

Even better are groups of one and the same item in different colors. Like these glasses:

Drinking glasses in rainbow colors

Or these shot glasses:

Are we noticing a pattern here? 🙂

I fully confess I find it hard challenging to incorporate sets of things in different colors to our home. (I’m rather a friend of the ‘same or similar color’ persuasion.) One attempt is our shot glasses above. Of course we also have a quilt of Mr. E’s design on our bed.

I haven’t done much redecorating for spring. Something I did do is select a set of votives in different colors for our dining room. I placed them on sill of the eastern window to catch the morning sun.

Aren’t those colors amazing?

Edit: I’ve edited and re-posted the photos.
