tuesday twinsday … in gender-neutral colors

Aqua and lime are such fun, lively colors that they are a natural fit for fun, lively spaces!  Of course, because those colors are generally considered gender-neutral, they are also a natural fit for anything having to do with boy-girl twins … like these precious birthday twins.  I am looooving those cutie patooties in their cutie patootie outfits.  It is a darn good thing that I didn’t have boy-girl twins or — given my obsession with matching/coordinated clothing — I may have sold my soul to Kelly’s Kids

I’m guessing those sweet babies and their mom would feel right at home in this gorgeous sunroom, designed by Kelley Proxmire!   I love how fresh and welcoming this room is.  Don’t you just dream of whiling away the hours with a glass of iced tea and a stack of magazines?

Of course, a nursery done in these colors would also be fabulous!  Fuchsia accents would make an aqua and lime color scheme more feminine, and chocolate brown would make it more boyish.

Of course, you’ve probably already realized that I’m a fan … because I used aqua and lime in my twin boys’ bedroom!  Their vintage campaign dresser is painted Benjamin Moore Dill Pickle 2147-40, which is hands-down my favorite yellow-green.   But let’s get back to dreaming about a lazy afternoon in the sunroom.

Do you have a favorite aqua, lime or other gender-neutral paint color?  Do share !

tuesday twinsday … in the pink

Isn’t this photo by Firewife Photography just the sweetest?  These little ones are absolutely beautiful.  I especially love the relationship between boy-girl twins … and I love the interplay between the “boyish” navy and the “girly” pink.

Of course, you may have guessed that if you saw the sneak peek of Traci Zeller Textiles that I posted on Instagram!  “Bubbly” is one of three patterns that I will introduce, and here you see it in the “Pop” colorway.

Wondering why the pattern is on plates?  I donated four custom melamine plates in the “Bubbly” design — one in each colorway — to the Unity in Design silent auction to benefit The Sandbox, a wonderful local charity that supports children facing life-threatening disease.

Navy and pink also seems to be a favorite of Mary McDonald, at least if this fabulous room designed by Mary and featured in Veranda is any evidence.  I have plenty of navy in my life — see, e.g., all prior convos about twin boys — so I find it especially fun to pop in some pink.  And there you have “Pop!”

What color combo are you loving lately?
