You may have noticed a few posts I’ve had now about my love for pastels. I’m a neutral sort of girl, so it should come as no surprise that I enjoy softer colors, especially paired with a hit of strong black. But the style that’s so very right now is toning down those florescents we’ve seen (for one too many seasons if you ask me) with (surprise surprise!) pastels…
And this room is the perfect example of how I like my pops of color – in little accents and pieces of art that stand out enough to make a statement but don’t steal all the attention. So I decided to break it down for all of us to figure out how we’ll be getting the look this spring for our wardrobes and our homes.
Colored denim will no doubt prevail again this summer, but I like the idea of investing in some greys and browns, and taking more risks on the accessories… which makes even more sense when designing a room and investing in furniture!
Not all of us are born designers, but when you dissect a well-designed space (or well-designed ensemble for that matter) you begin to see how all the elements work together and can come up with a foolproof formula to execute it yourself. How do you think I get dressed in the morning!?
