Trends in home design come and go, and sometimes come again! Brass seems to be one of those things. I remember when we first moved into our house and there were several brass light fixtures and they looked sooo “80’s”, and so, of course, they had to go! Door handles in the last decade looked better if they were chrome or oil-rubbed bronze, not dated brass. Oh, how things have changed!
Grey and gold has been on the design scene for a few years now, and it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. In fact, rather than receding, gold and brass tones are hotter than ever!
But what I like about this particular combo is the unexpectedness of it. Until just a few years ago, grey was usually combined with silver tones, like chrome and nickel, even in fashion. It seems every kitchen had silver toned hardware, whether that kitchen was grey, white, or something else. But now, the contrast is so refreshing.
Okay, I’ll admit, I wasn’t jumping for joy when jumpsuits first started popping up a few years ago. In fact, I was fairly resistant to the jumpsuit trend, and I’m not at all sure why! They’re chic, stylish, and could there be an easier way to throw an outfit together?!
It’s been so long since I’ve written about fashion, so I felt like a summer fashion post was in order today! And what’s more summery, than swimsuits?! I don’t know about you, but they are not my favorite thing to shop for or buy. However, a black swimsuit is my secret weapon! Trust me, you can’t go wrong with one.
Each year I usually touch on what is purported to be the “Color of the Year” as seen by Pantone. And this year that color is violet. I have to admit, purple of any shade is not something I’ve decorated with since I had a room that color when I was ten!
A fashion post! Finally! I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve written one, and to be honest, I’ve missed them! Between some blogging obligations to brands and the craziness of all the fall and Christmas decor posts and hops, it was difficult to fit them in. But today I wanted to talk about a wardrobe staple that I absolutely love: the plaid blazer! I’m a blazer lover in general (as anyone who knows you will tell you!) and the classic plaid or checked blazer is one that I turn to again and again.
