I mentioned in my Mother’s Day post that all those photos of decorating and cooking with strawberries got the wheels in my brain turning…and I bet you thought they only inspired that dinner. Well I am afraid they affected much more than that. The red and green color scheme is one of my favorites, and because of the strawberries and geraniums in this photo…
The red and green and geraniums and strawberries are now running rampant around here. Would you like to see? (Nod your head yes.) Let’s start in the foyer.
Remember, this is hanging on the front door…
So after you pass the geraniums there, you see geraniums on the foyer buffet along with red and green books on the silver tray (and of course the red candles found their way back in.)
On the other end, gardening tools, plant markers, and green patterned gardening gloves are in the jar, and seed packets are there beside them.Then walk on into the family room. You will find another geranium on the mantel along with a red berry basket, another gardening tool, and one of our red lanterns.
The throw pillows on the sofa are back to red again after a month or two of spring time yellow.
And the cabinet has another red lantern from the Pottery Barn outlet. (Love that place.)
And on the end table…guess what…another geranium! I told you they were running rampant…and we are just getting started!I’m afraid the red and green and geraniums and strawberries have really taken over the dining room. See for yourself…Yes, there is another geranium on the table and berry baskets on all the plates…and even a berry basket filled with strawberries.I just can’t resist red geraniums…they seem like the quintessential summer plant to me. (All you hydrangea lovers are jealous I know.)
Plus, they really work well with the red checked drapes.
The red and green colors have taken over the cookbooks in the dining room too.
Red napkins by the cookie jars…
Now let’s take a look in the kitchen. Do you spy geraniums and strawberries?
Hmmm…the photo above was taken today, and the one below was taken yesterday… when there was half a cake on the cake plate. Wonder where that went?? Everyone around here claims innocence, of course.
Sorry…where were we? Oh yes, red and green…the cookbooks are dressed to match.
And there is a recipe on the desk chalkboard for…strawberry pretzel salad..what else?
One more look at the kitchen corner.
and that wraps up all the red and green and geraniums and strawberries for this post. It’s entirely possible that another post might be on its way with the same contagious disease affecting a different area of the house, but I’m not quite sure yet.
We’ll just have to wait and see.
Has your home caught any of the red-and-green-and-strawberry-and-geranium disease?
We’d love to hear!
