The Year of ColorTuesday, July 24, 2012
If you're a reader of my blog, chances are you've seen my home tour. Up until last year, both my home and wardrobe were (mostly) void of any color. I still love neutrals (grey is my favorite color) but I declared 2012 my year of color and I don't mess around. I've purchased a yellow dress and two bright pink dresses. Neon pink tennis shoes. My nails are almost always neon pink, and I've added a few brights to my wardrobe. I'll actually be featuring my new place on two websites as soon as I finish decorating. While I've kept almost all of my furniture, I am looking to mix things up with some new prints, pillows, and other accessories. I have also re-purposed a few pieces. How everygirl of me!
The time has come. My once neutral apartment will now be a mostly neutral apartment. My first real piece of art, from Coco and Hearts is going to POP in my mostly white and grey room and I couldn't be more excited. Pink. Turquoise. Gold. Here's a little peek. Isn't she beautiful?
When it comes to decorating, how do you choose your bigger pieces? Do you stick with classics and neutrals or do you have a little fun and hope that you won't tire of something bright or trendy? Because as much as I would have loved to order this Serena and Lily chair in mist linen, I had to go with grey. But don't be surprised if you see a bright pink pillow somewhere.
I guess you might be a little surprised. This is me we're talking about, after all.
