runway to color palette: embrace color

Hello color!  This next palette, inspired by this fashion blogger, is colorful, bold and quite daring.  She took a risk with her fabulous silk pants and it paid off by creating a classic yet modern ensemble.  If used correctly, these colors will create the same affect in a space.  When first glancing at the different shades of blues, it’s hard to imagine them working cohesively together.  Picture the dark, strong blue on a wall with the lighter blues being used in fabrics and accessories.  Also picture the yellow and orange in an art piece hung on the blue wall.  Pure color heaven!  So if you’re up for more bold colors in your home (which believe me, this isn’t for everyone) have fun and be creative.  Here’s the look:

Color Inspiration: Jacket.
On the walls:  Hague Blue (No.30) is moody and wonderful.  If that’s too dark for your taste, try Wimborne White (No. 239).

Color Inspiration:  Shirt.
Use Pitch Blue (No. 220) for a large upholstered piece or window treatments.

Color Inspiration: Flowers in pants.
Babouche (No. 223) and Charlotte’s Locks (No. 268) are both great color to introduce in fabrics and art.  The easiest way to introduce these colors is in pillows.

Color Inspiration:  Flowers in pants.
Try using Stone Blue (No. 86) candles, art and even wooden furniture.

Color Inspiration:  Bonus.
Pitch Black (No. 256) is a great staple color to have in a room full of color.
