Composing Colors

the idea for a new color combination

can be found all around you

for example today : thrift store finds, in combination with a bunch of strawberries

as soon as I placed the plate with berries on our gray chair

I saw it happening


a beautiful, fresh color combination!

I grabbed some random items from our kitchen

and there it is, looking perfect to my eyes

I even found the trio in the new blanket I am working on

and it makes for the perfect picture to wish you a very happy weekend

~ love ~


  1. Oh, what a beautiful plate!! Love that grey, white, and red! So pretty! Have a lovely weekend! xo Heather

  2. Wat een prachtige vondst Maaike! Je hebt helemaal gelijk. Zelfs uit kringloopvondsten kun je inspiratie halen :-)

    Fijn weekend,

    Madelief x

  3. Hi Maaike, yes it's a lovely combination. I have just decorated my sons room in these colours.(post coming soon) it's fresh and modern. Your photos are lovely. Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

    1. I just hopped to your blog, the room turned out great! Thanks for sharing, xx

  4. Oh that was a lovely treat for my eyes, just the most gorgeous colour combination and my favourite sort almost accidental but so perfect! Enjoy the rest of your weekend. ♥

  5. It's great when things happen naturally, like color combinations! Inspiration is all around us! thanks for sharing yours.

  6. Love your color perfect for summer! ❤ hoping you will be enjoying great weather in Ontario as we are here in BC!

    1. Hi Dagmar, summer is perfect here, lots of sunshine, sometimes a little too hot for a few days, but then again it always cools down to 25 C :) My Dutch body and mind have no idea what is happening, haha! The most perfect summer in my entire life, I can handle more of these summers :) xx
