One of my very best friends is a huge Chicago Bear's fan. Actually, living here in the Quad-Cities, only a couple of hours from Chicago...I know loads of Bear's fans. And yet, year after year, although my intention is to become one of them and join in the fun cheering at the touchdowns ( I actually just spent 20 seconds as I tried to think of the word touchdown...goal? no. home run? no. hole-in-one? no.) and screaming at the screen when Urlacher(?) screws something up. But, to no avail. Here I sit in front of the big game and find myself looking at the uniforms thinking about if I could design a room around the team colors. I'm sure I could, but not sure if I'd want to. That mustard yellow on the Packers uniforms is a doozey, isn't it? Wowza. Good for a lacquered chair with a bold black and white fabric, but not so much for the walls. But, the Bear's colors are a bit more palatable with the majority being just blue and white. The pop of orange is fun and though you don't see the combo a whole lot, here are a few spaces I found that do it rather well:
Love this. The palate is so pretty here and I like that the colors are used in a more classic style, rather than using them in their boldest forms and going more contemporary.
I'd gladly climb into this guest bed on a rainy Sunday afternoon for a nice long nap.
This is right up my alley, too. I think the mix of color and pattern is so inspired and fresh. Doesn't it feel collected instead of "designed"?
If you're a Bears fan, I hope they step it up with only 5 minutes left in the 4th quarter and the score 21 to 7. Not looking good, my friends. If you're a Packers fan, your day is probably going a bit better. If you're like me and you wish you could just change the channel to finish watching "You've Got Mail", this too shall pass.
Have a wonderful night and an even better week!
