While out for a stroll recently I spotted a dress on display in a shop window on the other side of the street. I knew instantly that I had to have it so I jay-walked right across the street to get to that shop and that dress. No second thoughts; I bought that dress. The dress is a black and white stripe long summer dress. Casual and fun. While paying for my purchase I noticed a basket full of colourful bracelets. Of course my eye immediately went for the orange bracelet. (As I stated in a previous post, ‘orange is my new red’.) So out I go from that store with a new black and white striped dress and an orange bracelet. Instant decision, happy me. Normally, I do not make quick decisions when it comes to my clothing or my décor but this purchase just seemed right. When I got home I laid out my purchases, added a white hat and a blue jean jacket and voila, a whole outfit came together. So the other day I put my new outfit on and stopped….! As I looked around my bedroom I started to smile and the realization hit me then. Not only was I dressed in black and white stripes with blue and a hit of orange but so was my bedroom!! My ‘summer’ bedroom had the same colour scheme happening too; white coverlet, black and white striped pillows, orange lamps and blue art. That is why I made such a quick decision on the dress purchase; it felt familiar. Interesting huh? So is it your clothes inspire your home décor or your home décor inspires your clothes? Next time you are wondering what colours to decorate a room with, colour that is suited to your personal tastes and comfort, take a look inside your closet.
