No white after Labor Day?

large-home-beach

Should we blame Daisy Buchanan, that paragon of perfection, and those Long Island snobs for the rule, no white after Labor Day?

Perhaps, but who cares nowadays. White is always in fashion.

After all, white never clashes, it is more minimal, It is bright, which makes it right any time of the year. I am thinking a snowy white Christmas, aren’t you?

Now, add a splash of color as the seasons change and you are there.

The manners bible, Emily Post’s Etiquette, 17th Edition, 2004 gave the go-ahead for white after Labor Day, but we didn’t really need to wait for permission to do what is right, did we?

White comes in hundreds of shades and textures, making it versatile in design.

It’s spring, let’s rock!

“It’s spring, let’s rock!”

An off hand remark I imagine Charles and Henry Green might have jokingly said from the porch of their Bungalow home in Pasadena, California.

Greene and Greene architects

Charles and Henry Greene were brothers, born in Ohio, raised in West Virginia, who studied architecture in St. Louis and Boston, then in 1893 followed Horace Greeley’s advice and headed west to the small town of Pasadena, California.

The architecture firm of Greene & Greene was born. Between 1907 and 1909, their flair for American Arts & Crafts design would reach its zenith  with the construction of the “ultimate bungalows” — one of which is the Gamble House in Pasadena.

Available at Traditions Furniture in Wichita and Overland Park.

Are you Blue?

Traditions Home wants to know:

Are you blue?

baby-blue-eyes-detail
my baby’s got blue eyes

You’ve got personality

A Personality Color Code tells you that if you are, then you are true, passionate, and creative. The other personality colors are red, yellow, and white, allowing no possibility of the many shades and hues that fill up the rainbow of colors our world is filled with. Nor, does the code allow for the many shades of grey and white.

Maybe, your baby’s got blue eyes.

Maybe blue reminds you of the ocean waves and the deep blue sea, or the blue sky on a mountain side. Maybe blue is your favorite flower or the color of your true love’s eyes. Maybe, your baby’s got blue eyes. And maybe you like the way it rhymes with “you”.

The color code may not be accurate, but it makes us curious to wonder what pseudo-psychologist say about our blue fascination. No Rorshach test here.

Blues are steady as the waves, ordered as the tides and enduring as the ocean. Blues love with a deep passion. They are the well-spring of our society, creators of our culture, ones who foster home and love. They are loyal and true blue in the most trying circumstances, even when clouds turn the skies grey. They strive to be the very best.

If your are blue, we have the perfect room for you.
