As I view some of my favorite blogs, I see that we have two camps, those that love all white and neutrals and those that love color and pattern. I think both can be really fabulous, but more and more I am drawn to the bold color and pattern camp. For a long time, I kept everything pretty monochromatic, then I added an accent color and more texture, now I am really loving a pop of color, something bright and mixing a lot of patterns.
Some say black isn't a color, but this is definitely bold and wow, so striking. This definitely grabs your attention. I love the black walls and the gold, this is so rich and elegant pair with the stark white. (I do think I sould have painted the window frame white too.)
This is something that I would have called bold in the past. Mixing two different fabrics, now I look at it and it is pretty neutral.
and this mix of color against all the white is very eye-catching - -
Bright Orange and Brown - Love this and that closet too.
I love having just one pop of color against white.
I am kind of all over the board, I love bright and neutral. Some of my looks from the past - - -
I love orange, so I have used it several times - -
Then on the neutral side, I do love black and white - -
and I also like glitter and animal - I think animal is neutral.
and if you've been following along, then you know I went a little bold in my living room for summer. - -
Yes, I am definitely more into color, pattern and bold now.
So, how much color do you like? Can you live with brights, or do you want neutrals? Check back tomorrow for a tutorial on how to build a color scheme.
