The simple beauty of black, white and bright green
When decorating a bathroom, consider colors and patterns that you wouldn't normally use for any other room in the house. I recently took a trip to the home improvement store dead set on painting one of our bathrooms my signature choice; yellow. I still believe that yellow is one of the most cheerful colors you can paint a room, simply because it is the color of the sun.
Not this time though, because for some reason at the last minute I decided to go with bright green. I have NEVER painted any room this color. I went with my instinct and bought a gallon of the bright green paint, not sure of how it was going to come out...the result? I love it! The key is to add black and white accent such as the bathroom pictured above. The wallpaper in the bathroom above is Kate Spade and has a wonderful zebra pattern and is paired beautifully with the white shower curtain and black accents.
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.
