"If My Outfit Was a Room: Spring Color Edition"

 It should come as no surprise that this Spring is all about color!

No wonder that my friends and I all selected brights to wear to the Charlotte Passport for Fashion event this weekend.

It got me thinking once again, “What if my outfit was a room?” 




Since I wore my two favorite colors Saturday, I have no doubt that if my outfit was a room, I’d absolutely love it.

I was right.  I love it, and I think there are 3 B’s involved in using this classically preppy scheme. 

1.      Think BOLD.  Too soft and you’ve got yourself a nursery or a bubble gum sweet tweens room.

 2.      Utilize Balance.  Balance the pink and green hues with more neutral tones like whites, beige, etc.

3.      Be Brave.   You know I love mixing prints, but this room below would’ve made even me nervous.  But the truth is, I like it.  I think it comes together very well and most of all I’m sure the homeowner loves it.  That is, after all, the designer’s job.
