The Year of Color

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.

  1. Ahh Danielle I LOVE it! I love me some color but always stick with neutral basics so I will love them forever, so I totally agree with the grey chair :-)

  2. I tend to stick to classics and then go for bright and trendier things for small accessories and accents that I can swap in and out as the styles change or my mood changes! xo

  3. I've always been obsessed with her paintings but the bf won't approve. That's the problem with living with a guy but there are pluses too :) Can't wait to see your home tour in the fall!

  4. I am definitely in the same boat as you. I'll start with neutrals and then add smaller accessories with pops of color. If I'm going to invest in a piece, it had better be something I'll be in love with for a long time!

    And on another note, that painting looks gorgeous. Abstract art is hands down my absolute favorite.

    for my decorating style, i love to have neutral classic base pieces like my couch and chairs. then bursts of color through throw pillows and pictures, rugs.

  9. Danielle I was the same way until fairly recently. I always gravitated towards black. Ha. But I've been slowly embracing colors. It's taken a while, but I'm getting there. :)
