ever since i can remember, i’ve been obsessed with color. being an interior design/ art history major in college, allowed me to really study, learn it and fall in love with it even more. (side note- funny, because i have major commitment issues with it in my own house.) i also go through phases where i see a trend in everything i pin/bookmark. and right now i’m super into lavender.
want to incorporate lavender into your house? here are some helpful tips:
tone: make sure you have the right tone. a good amount of grey or blue will make for a chicer vibe without being babyish.
accent colors: tangerine, cobalt, eggplant, hunter green, grey, navy.
colors to avoid: any other pastels (hello easter!)
decor: keep it masculine for the most part (a few girly pops here and there are okay!) with clean lines and modern fabric.
suggested accents: to keep things looking fresh and clean try; vintage brass sconces, leather, ghost chairs, a moody watercolor abstract, a mid-century modern chandelier, statement wallpaper, a graphic fabric (pillows, a small chair), wood elements.
not ready to bite the bullet/ too much color for you? try it in small amounts- the powder room, a little girl’s room, pillows, a cool abstract painting, two cozy chairs, the patio that needs a spring update…
be bold and have fun!
