I love beachy colors, aquas and blues and oranges and greens, colors that remind me of sitting on white sand watching the waves break on the shore or enjoying the exhilarating feeling of salt water while I’m bobbing up and down as the waves comes in or going snorkeling and finding myself lost, watching beautiful, colorful salt water fish swimming by me or sitting on the beach at sunset watching the orange sun slowly sink into the increasingly dark water. The seashore is my favorite place, a place for relaxation and for solace, the place I picture in my mind when I need to calm down and relax.
And so it is with what I wear and how I decorate my house. I like to wear beachy colors and enjoy having them surround me when I am at home, adding an extra touch of relaxation and solace. As spring is fading into summer I want to go to the beach, and I want to bring the beach into my home.
One way to do that is to bring knit beachy-colored sofa pillow covers into my living room. I have seen a number of ready-made pillows that are nice, but I feel the call to knit my own sofa pillow covers in the beachy colors and designs I like. These knitting patterns in my favorite beachy colors totally fill the bill.
