Adding pops of fresh color to your home or fashion can make a world of difference. There is bright lemon happening in fashion and Pantone 2017 chooses “Greenery” as hot for home decor. But figuring out which color to wear or add to your home isn’t always easy. There are colors you already own and colors you feel comfortable in. Let’s start there.
Go to your closet:
- Look at your favorite pants, skirts, and jackets. What’s your base color? Black? Navy? Brown? Pull them out and lay them on your bed.
- Take a look at your favorite blouses, tops and sweaters. What color family do they have in common? Shades of blue? Mostly pink/rose? Pull them out and lay on your bed across the bottoms.
Think about your current lifestyle:
- Do you work outside the home in a professional setting? Work but keep it casual? Active social life? In transition?
Once you have done these steps, what do you see? It doesn’t make sense to add new things or plug in fresh color if you don’t go through a process of evaluation.
