Change of Hue

Seasons change.  And with this inevitable cycle, people change too.  The best kind of change is when a kindred spirit appears in one's life and one begins to see the world in a different light.  For example, I have long tended towards the cooler hues such as blue and white.  But Monsieur is particularly partial towards what I call Autumnal hues.  He did not realize that I had noted his increasing concern that never the twain would meet.  So to demonstrate that these two seemingly diametrically opposed colour palettes could not only co-exist in a state of harmony but produce something uniquely pleasing to the eye, I went in search of something, je ne sais quoi.  Then, I saw these cushions, known as the Embroidered Stem Cushions from Chapters, and knew that I had found the answer.


I am happy to report that Monsieur approved of the cushions and agreed wholeheartedly that the mustard yellow was an unexpected counterpoint to my beloved blue.

But more than anything, I think he was relieved that his particular views had found a place within L'Heure Bleue At Home.  I looked around L'Heure Bleue At Home and saw that his effect had rippled outwards from within and began to appreciate what I had only glanced at with a certain degree of doubt and hesitancy.


There was a particular Art Deco vase which I had pushed unceremoniously to the back of a shelf as I was, as yet, undecided as to whether it was to my liking.  But Monsieur's eyes lit up when he saw it and asked, "Why have you hidden it?  Why not bring it forward for all to see?"  Why not indeed?


So now, where once my eyes were blinkered, I see burnt sienna, ochres and warm mustard. And they make the blues and whites that I love bluer than blue, whiter than white.


I see the world through another's eyes and the length, depth and breadth of my world is changed, irrevocably.  And in this season of thanks, all I can say is, "Thank you.  From the bottom of my heart, I thank you."

Oh I love it. I love the pillows and the colors definitely are perfect together. I love the tray vignette also, the vase just really brings the color of the yellow/gold pillow into the room. Very pretty. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty
