What's Your Favorite Color?

Is your favorite color in your home? Is this same color in your wardrobe? I thought about this last night when I ordered four new shirts: two white, one cream, and one mint. I'll be honest, the mint one was a stretch for me, and though I really like it, I ordered it, because I "need" more color in my wardrobe.  I know. I'm crazy like that, buying a mint shirt and all. Anyway, there's a point to this post...

This same thing happens all the time with design clients. They tell me that they really like certain colors, but that they "need" to use something different in the next room.  Here are my thoughts: You don't "need" to use different colors in every room. If you are drawn to certain colors, use those colors in your home. I love all of these rooms from the very colorful, to the pastel, to the neutral. But, I am definitely drawn to some more than others. Buy what you like, just because you like it, not because it's a certain color that you "need". I promise you, you'll like your house a lot better, because it will be more you. Plus, you won't end up painting a room yellow, and then covering it up with tan the very next day. I've heard that's kind of a bummer.  What's your favorite color?

  1. Gorgeous inspiration!
    I love green but I don't have much of it in my home (kitchen only,) or in my closet!
    I used to sell custom furniture and every time someone was having problems choosing a color I would tell them to check their closet, what color do they like to wear? It worked every time!

  2. My FAVE color is ALL OF THEM! Hahahah I'm the total opposite of you babe, I've been leaning into neutrals this spring to tone down the rainbow hues in my closet and home! You could say I'm a maximalist for sure! Everything in moderation, right? ;D

    Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog love, hope to see you back soon!

    Peace. Love. LOL!

  3. I love that room with the pink wall and accents and especially love the last one with the pops of red coloring! <3 Very chic

  4. I'm a sucker for taupes, tans, grays, and pops of pink.

  5. I don't really have a favorite color...but my wardrobe is definitely full of pinks and purples. If I decorated with those, my husband might go crazy. As far as what I like, I love to look at pictures full of neutrals, but in the end, I love to have a house full of lots of colors
