HUE DU JOUR: HOT CHOCOLATE

Chocolate lipsPerhaps it’s because I’m trying to cut down on anything chocolate-related, but I can’t seem to think about anything else. It is for that reason that my withdrawal symptoms and I bring you some chocolate brown inspiration. Although tricky to pull off in the home, it can nevertheless be a rich and inviting color. And I absolutely love it in fashion. What beats a beautiful piece of soft, supple leather or gorgeous brown velvet? Enjoy! Continue reading

HUE DU JOUR: WHITE

White2It starts with a blank canvas. And it ends with a blank canvas. Sometimes, white needs no embellishments or added color to make it pop. White is a statement in and of itself. Think of a beautiful white room, crisp white curtains, creamy white couches, perhaps just a variation in fabric or pattern to achieve that perfect dynamic. Continue reading

Have you ever tried the color combination orange and blue (preferably a dark, moody blue)? It’s a wonderful, less saccharine alternative to the all-time preppy favorite pink and green, and it’s perfect for spring.

I have a thing for mustard. Not for the condiment, per se, but for the color . It’s like a more grown up version of bright, sunny yellow: a little more sophisticated, although just as cheery, particularly when viewed in the right light. It looks fantastic when paired with cognac, deep turquoise and a moody taupe, particularly chic with beige or bronze, and amazing simply on its own. Remember how Michelle Williams looked in that mustard yellow gown by Vera Wang (see below)? Continue reading

Whether you’re into all the hearts and flowers, it’s impossible to get around the fact that today is Valentine’s Day. Let me be up front with you and admit that I’m not a fan. I’m not a hater either, but I really don’t see the point of this holiday. In high school we would get carnations for people we liked/loved/wanted to date in different colors corresponding with the feelings we had for that particular person. The more reds you got, the better, because you were loved and lusted after. The yellow ones symbolized friendship, therefore not something to get too excited about, but they were always better than none at all. Continue reading
