      Bellini and Glazed Ginger

      Bellini and Glazed Ginger - JulRe Designs LLC

      A sultry brown hue paired with an ethereal peachy-blush tone makes this color duo a seductive match!

      Brown can represent steadfastness and simplicity while light blush colors often signify vigor and freshness.  We have paired sweet Glazed Ginger with the delicate and graceful Bellini is a yin and yang combo. perfect for classic styles, moods and even flavors.

      One of my favorite flavor pairings is ginger and peach.  The pungency of ginger actually contrasts with the full fruitiness of peach but for my palate, they're a match made in food nirvana.  I like to use this flavor mix for many recipes, but cocktails are my favorite.  I'm currently captivated by this Ginger Peach Bellini from Daily Waffle! You will understand my obsession once you try the recipe below.

      Color Craze: Placid Blue and Yellow Pear

      Cheery, springy, pastels-a-poppin'!

      Sunshine printPlacid Blue and Yellow Pear together make me smile. The pleasant print you see above in these happy colors makes me almost love the idea of wallpaper. (gasp!) But alas, the thought has now been pushed from my decorative consciousness. It says a lot about this color duo if its prettiness invited me to have a brief visit to the mystical land of wall coverings. No offense to those who can appreciate the wonders of latex, vinyl and adhesive. I personally have more of an aesthetic connection to paint, brushes and rollers. Nevertheless, these hues are a perfectly refreshing pairing for any room in your home, no matter how the colors are applied.

      Caneel Bay Blue and Sea Green

      Fresh, clean, invigorating and calming all at once. Blues and greens are natural palette companions but this duo has a special relationship. 

      Ray Anderson Quote

      Often paired in real-life depictions of the richness of our fertile planet, we are reminded of the beauty of Earth and asked to respect it as our one and only universal home.

      While I have enjoyed working with these life-affirming colors in preparation for creating this post, they reminded me of how easy it is to forget that many parts of the world are still recovering from the effects of weather-related disasters. Parts of Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands are still rebuilding from hurricanes Irma and Maria in 2017. Join me in support of the rebuilding of the US Virgin Islands by donating to any of these worthy funds today.
