HandJive, tonal tuesday, part 4

Despite the snow earlier this week, Spring is starting to roll into Chicago! And with all the birdies singing & the flowers popping, I’ve got candy-colored pastels on the brain. This color scheme has got me thinking about the dance scene in Grease; you know, when Frenchie looks like a banana? All those creamy, dreamy, frothy confections of dresses are dancing around in my head!

Visions of 1950’s kitchens with turquoise & pink appliances drifted through my brain this week. Added in brighter shades of the turquoise & added a splash of red to modernize the whole kitchy thing. I am in total lust vintage refrigerators. A girl can dream, I suppose.

Feeling bright pops of magenta complemented with cool greys. There really is a tiny bit of madness in the magenta, methinks.

Sorry, I’ve been sporadic. My brain’s a jumble of planning both for the wedding and for the big move that will happen right after the wedding. And I’m going to try to cram a yard sale in there too! I promise to be a better blogger from here on out.
