the outdoor in

Fashion and home decor have always had a direct relationship when it comes to color and trends.  For the last several years, I have been naturally (no pun intended) drawn to earth tones for my home furnishing style. Dominating neutral tones of green, brown, with black and white serve as the foundation for my everyday living space as well as my closet. But, now with all this rage about color, I have whole heartedly embraced brights and bolds to take a step into my world of decor and dress up. Here are some trends to help adapt color while keeping that oh-so-comfort of the nature inspired.

Incorporate color with nature-esque prints. 
Crate and Barrel: placemats, bread basket, silverware
Pottery Barn: mug, napkins, sugar pot
Target: plate
Home Goods: bowl

Nordstrom: tanktop, blouse (B.P.)
Bloomingdales: linen pants (Guess)

Nature doesn't always mean the wilderness. Think water, vacation, and yacht.
Pottery Barn: pillow covers 
Forever 21: sweater
Marc Jacobs: handbag

Flowers make the world a prettier place.

  1. You have a good point and I love the colors. I don't usually like floral shirts, but this one is nice. I like that it has subdued colors and lets the bag be the statement piece/attetion grabber. Nice job! I look forward to reading more from you.
