Virtual Holiday House Tour Featuring Maria Killam

Our Virtual Holiday House Tour continues with Maria Killam of Colour Me Happy.  If you don't know Maria, you need to! She is a professional colourist with amazing grace and style.  She has wonderful explanations about colors and how they interact. Her blog is delightful and I encourage you to check it out!

Thanks for inviting me to be a part of your Holiday Bloggers Christmas Tour!

We just moved in May and my old furniture was almost 8 years old and tired, so this year I chose an entirely new colour scheme for my new house, which meant that the Christmas Tree would need to coordinate.  I have never spent any real money on Christmas tree ornaments, the existing ones had been collected over the years but the colours were primarily red and gold.

Since my new colour scheme is sunflower yellow and raspberry, my new decor had to fit in!

When I was in Portland in November I found my first raspberry balls walking by a florist in the Pearl District (above)! And here they are on my tree along with some others I found at Target and Pier 1.

Here is my dining table all dressed in raspberry and green!

Have a happy holiday!
