Craft/Office Area Color Palette

So, I found the colors that I want to use in my craft/office area.  I'm super excited about it.  SO, here's the story.

Someone posted on facebook that Valspar was giving away free paint samples.  Their samples are pretty nice.  They come with a little paint tray and a roller.  They start the giveaway at 9am CST every day, and it's still going on. Check it out. I went to their website at exactly 9 am and needed to pick a color.  I wanted some color, a happy color. What color could he happier than the color of butter? None. :)  I saw the color "Like Butter" and thought it was a nice yellow. Unfortunately, I can't find a way to post a picture of the color, but I'll post something later that will give you a good idea.  You can also go to Valspar's website and search "Like Butter". Anyway, I'm not painting the walls since we live in an apartment, but I thought it would be kind of cool to get some free paint
to paint small things.   

Today while I was looking at fabric online.  I came across this fabric by My Mind's Eye.  I knew they also made scrapbook paper.  The line is Called Andrea Victoria.  It is perfect for this Like Butter color.  I may order some of the fabric, but I'm definitely ordering the paper.  Here is one of my favorites.

That light yellow color is the buttery color.  On my laptop it looks a little pale, but you get the gist.

There are some beautiful damasks in this collection, too.
I really like the combination of light yellow, gold, 
gray, and black.  

I love it so much! It also all goes with my super 
awesome lamp. :)

I'm really happy I've figured out the color scheme.  Now, 
I just have to find a craft table and paint my sewing 
machine table.

Stay warm!


  1. I need that lamp. I have some craft paper that looks like that. I use it to cover my sterilite storage. It's really sexy.

  2. I'm pretty much in love with Damask. So, I bet those storage containers are super sexy. :)
