Celebrating color

Here in NW Montana we are accustomed to 7 months of "winterish" weather- which means little sunlight. I tried to get some more natural light in by not having curtains and painting everything white. Which in turn made my walls grey because it reflected the grey out side and without curtains it made it so cold and I threw caution to the wind and painted a warm mocha and a warm mustard yellow- a favorite in Scandinavia. And added some red and white gingham curtains, with new warm color makes the dining room and entry really cozy. ... I am happy and celebrating color!


  1. It is so pretty Camilla! You have a very lovely home and I must say I am totally envious of your stone fireplace!

  2. It is beautiful and so inviting. Lovely.

  3. Lovely colors! Before reading the post I thought "how bright and cheerful". So I think you did achieve your goal :) Love the shoe and bag area :)

  4. Camilla,
    Lovely! So nice to peek at your life. I enjoy seeing you create including your spaces inside and out. What a treat.Love the mocha and mustard. You already know I love red. Is that strange or what, I did the same thing. The white seems dreary even now. I am in the process of redo. Gotto go buy some yarn, right now. Hope some is left for me. hehe.


  5. oh my goodness what a gorgeous home you have. i love your choice of colors, you have such a gift for choosing and combining them. i love everything about your home camilla, it's completely lovey (trying hard not to be envious here). :)
    beautiful work

  6. Beautiful! I love all the colors you have chosen. Happy summer to you!

  7. Camilla,
    Your home is so beautiful! I love the colors. Both the mocha and mustard yellow are among my very favorite colors. :)
    We have very rainy winters here and not much natural light in our house. Anything to add some cheer is wonderful!

    Love, Taryn


May the Warm Winds of Heaven
Blow softly upon your house.
May the Great Spirit
Bless all who enter there.
May your Mocassins
Make happy tracks
in many snows,
and may the Rainbow
Always touch your shoulder.
