Suggestions for using our Dragonfly Home Decor
Imagine a lovely bathroom painted in pear green or robin’s egg blue with crisp white accents of trim and tile. Towels to match on a gleaming, antique brass towel bar. On the vanity, your handmade, handpainted collection of dragonfly bathroom accessories. Perhaps a botanical print of dragonflies over water accenting one wall? How about a braided rag rug in complementary colors on the floor? Perhaps a vase of blue flag iris? What a fresh picture that makes!
Or how about Dinner for 4 on a warm summer evening. Bamboo placemats, silver shining, icy drinks for you and your guests. Pasta Marinara making the most of the bounty of your summer vegetable garden in our dragonfly pasta bowl. Cucumbers and tomatoes in a basil vinaigrette and for dessert, key lime pie baked to perfection in our fabulous ceramic pie dish. My mouth is watering just writing this!
What mood do you want to create?
Home is sanctuary. If created with love, home is your haven from the stresses of the outside world. Men and women who take pride and comfort in home life strive to create certain feelings in the various rooms of the house. The sunny kitchen, the restful bedroom, the vibrant sitting room or meditative home office. Each room, if decorated and arranged with care, sets the stage for the pleasures and tasks of daily living, and the finest homes in our nation are the ones that truly reflect the tastes, feelings and needs of the owner.
What inspires you? What mood are you trying to capture via the appointments of your home? Do you yearn for rich, power colors – the canvas of the desert with its reds, golds and purples? Or do you want the soothing surroundings that the lavender, sage and white of a grassy meadow give? Fire, water, earth and air are the basic elements Which one resonates most with you and your family? Perhaps you want a bit of each of these strengths in different rooms of your home. Perhaps, the dragonfly, with his enduring beauty, is so popular because he belongs in all of these places – that spark of brightness which makes life precious.
