ecru + brights

Ecru is the light beige color of unbleached linen.
I think saying “ecru” makes me sound smarter than “off-white” and ecru it just plain fun to say.

Yes, I know it’s been a while (Ok, 9 months! Sheez, I could have had a baby already — well, technically no, but you know what I mean!) since I’ve posted some color inspiration over here. My friend Katie, pointed this out to me and I thought about it and decided that posting a new combination for Christmas didn’t sound all that overwhelming anymore, so here you go!

I decorate my home in BRIGHT, FUN, HAPPY, FESTIVE colors for Christmas, so I thought I’d dress my boys in these colors this year. When we head to church on  Christmas Day, they will be wearing these sweaters (two bigs, two littles) and these bow ties. Now, I’m on the hunt for a little dress that coordinates, so we can take a kid Christmas photo in front of the tree!

I’ll create a scrapbook layout with these photos after Christmas.
I’d LOVE to see what you do with this color combination.

You can post your creations HERE.


  1. Gorgeous colours + the ecru!
    Love this combo :)

  2. Those brights are my happy colours, love!!

  3. Bow ties are cool! Just saying!
    Love the sweaters and ties and colors!
    Maybe a a fun polka dot dress in those colors? Hope you can find something cute soon!

  4. Aaaahhhhhh!!! Curse you Stacy Julian!!! I have a big To Do List today, with a couple BIG projects that I want to accomplish and now all I want to do is stop, drop, and SCRAPBOOK! These colors are totally calling for a certain photo that I have wanted to scrap for a while now and just have not been inspired to…well…laundry is over-rated right??? And Christmas is a whole, gulp, 19 days away…plenty to take one day off to scrapbook, yes? =)

  5. Wish my boys would dress up more! Such an awesome colour combination! Thanks for the post!

  6. Too fun! My son would never wear these…

  7. I can’t wait to see that family portrait of the kids in front of the tree wearing this color combo! What a cute idea! LOVE IT! :)

  8. I was thinking a cute polka dot dress too. That would be too cute.
