This spring I have had a real desire to decorate with colour – especially pink. I have never been a ‘pink’ person but I have been imagining my décor with hits of this bright hue. It could be that the neutral colours of winter have me wanting anything but taupe, linen and grey. I have been imagining how fun it would be to have something like this bright pink sofa from www.jamesstuartduncan.com and decorate a room around it with other hits of colours like juicy orange, sunshine yellow and chartreuse green.
So this past weekend I went shopping…..but for clothing/shoes/accessories. Something I love to do! A session of retail therapy always works wonders. Of course a change of season is always a good excuse to go shopping too! My subconscious mind must have been preprogrammed because the first thing that I found was a pink (actually raspberry) patent purse from www.badgleymischka.com. I realized that my desire for colour had transferred over to my wardrobe. It was way over my budget but I had to have it so I justified it by the fact that it cost a lot less than the pink sofa.
This purse became the ‘springboard’ for the shopping adventure that followed. Those who know me will agree that generally I dress in black and white not bright colours so this shopping spree was a departure from the norm. My eyes scanned the racks of clothing looking only for pinks, oranges, purples and chartreuses.
So this is what I came home with.
Whereas had I gone furniture shopping I would likely have come home with this – same colours, different pieces Funny how that works!
