Love Affair With Red
Don't be afraid to lose the color red in your overall design of ANY room in your house! Red is bold but, if used in small doses if you are just getting used to warming up to using bold colors, is VERY effective and will elevate your mood! Start with one wall in a small room or paint a closet or a bathroom first to see how it effects you. Many surprising colors go very well with red, including deep purples and even turquoise! Discover what delights you. The picture above shows a red toile chair that we inherited from Nick's parents. At first it dominated any space that it was in, but I learned over the years to mix the color with many others and it worked! The chair is now an icon!
I have always been dualistic in my approach to business. In college, I studied political science and philosophy. While I have always been extremely creative, I initially thought that my education would of been better spent pursing a law degree. I have spent many years in the legal profession. That being said, I came the realization that I would be much happier in a creative profession. I have gone to my true passion within my creative self and started editing and writing my own fashion lifestyle blog in 2009. I have not looked back and love what I do.
