Color of the Week???

I'm not sure, yet.

Last month, I was inspired by this post from knack, to try a similar color.  I chose Martha's Rainforest.  It's a rich blue-green that I thought would appeal to those who aren't really into the whole cottage look.

I decided to try it out on this mug stand, and I have to say, I'm just not sure about it.  Maybe it's because it's not really my style.  I prefer the lighter colors that make up the shabby cottage look and this definitely isn't one of those.  It seems a little plain to me, and maybe it just needs to be distressed to add a little oomph to it.  What do you guys think? 

Even though I don't really think I like this color on the mug stand, I do think it might be perfect for this jewelry box that I scored at an auction awhile back. I think the design of the box, coupled with this vivid color, would make a nice India-inspired piece.  Yes???

  1. I like the color. I actually think it would be great paired with a lighter color for some great contrast. It would be very Indian or Bohemian on that jewelry box.

  2. Yes, I think it would look great on the jewelry box, Kristi! Maybe a little of your distressing to the mug holder will help it out. : )

  3. i like pastel colour, but the jewelry box is too pretty!


  4. I like this color a lot, but it does feel a little bland...I think it just needs to be distressed with a lighter color and it would perk right up! So much fun!!!
