Nice Color Combo

Hello Lovelies! I really like the color combo in this house: This is Catherine's place, and you can visit it thoroughly here. Since I love white flowers, like the ones shown above, I love a quite dark background to befit them best. Here we have a touch of (dark) orange and other autumn colors. Love! enjoy! -Beautymist.
