earthy days

Just when everyone is urging you trade in your earth tones for bright colorful hues, I feel just the opposite. Blame it on my devoted love of the New England landscape, but I feel early spring is the perfect time to embrace the warmth of a neutral palette. There’s something beautiful about the browns of early spring. Like an Andrew Wyeth painting, I find it soothing. The grass isn’t yet green and the trees have yet to bud, so I have a hard time fighting nature and splashing color all over my home. It feels unnatural. I say, let the colors of the warm earth enrich you.

I love this post. I hadn't thought about staying true to a neutral color palette when spring hits. You are so right! I always see images on blogs where their homes are filled with color, and I start to feel obligated to go in that direction. But, now that I have read your post- I think I will continue to focus on my love of linen and faded shades of color!
