I thought it would be fun to start a new series, one that doesn't necessarily come to you on a weekly basis, but when I am inspired with certain color palettes. I can combine all sorts of color combinations when it comes to clothes and putting outfits together, but when it comes to home decor, I am a lost soul. You would think the two would go hand and hand, but they don't, at least not for me. I think we have a certain eye for one or the other, and some have the gift of being dynamic at both. I am not one of them. One of my best friends is an interior designer and every wall that has been painted in my house was chosen by her. She has a gift. And she texts me selfies of her in outfits asking if this or that looks okay. Too bad we can't morph our abilities.

So, I dreamed up this idea to help those of you in need of color combining ideas when it comes to your closet and wardrobe. The two shades of green, gold, a dash of black and hint of leopard makes a statement, but isn't too loud or overly boisterous. This mixture of hues can work for all seasons depending on the fabric and textures. It's a combination that I probably wouldn't have meshed together on my own, but luckily this Maddie top and scarf from Kiki La'Rue arrived in the mail together. So, fortunately, it didn't require much effort or brain power. They were meant to be a team.
Are you better with coordinating colors with clothes or home decor? Or were you gifted with both? And what do you think about this new feature? Helpful? Yea or Nay?
