Color+inspiration: Burgundy

Burgundy was all over fashion this past fall and if you’re following the trends you have at least one piece in burgundy. And it got me thinking how does this color embracing interior design – to my surprise burgundy isn’t very popular in home decor, but I can’t say I don’t understand why, after all this is a bold hue requiring attention when creating color palettes as not every color pairs nicely with burgundy, don’t you think so? Personally I doubt I would paint my bedroom in burgundy as I would probably fear the darkness the room will receive, however accent pieces look pretty good adding a touch of elegance (a result close to what plum gives to a space – royal and sophisticated).

What’s your opinion on burgundy?

Color of 2013: Emerald green

So in one of my last posts I said I’ll be posting every day and I failed at that, but in my defense I can say that I had a reason – a fussy baby (enough said, right?). Anyway, today I’d like to add my two cents to the topic of Pantone choosing Emerald green as the color of 2013. I already expressed my affection for this color in previous posts having no clue that this color will have such a big impact on the design scene at some point – I guess I have foreseen a trend without even knowing it :). The richness of this shade is mesmerizing, showing a whole new level of green – a dense hue that screams refinement and elegance. I like how modern emerald green feels, definitely not the boring green one might expect :).

Ready for fall

If you know me, you also know I’m in love with warm weather and summer days and I would gladly trade winter for another summer season :)! But we had so high temps this year that I can’t help myself but crave fall this season when speaking about fashion. I can’t wait to wear oversized sweaters, mustard color and nude coats – just the thought of it makes me feel so comfy right now! I’m not a fashion victim and it’s a known fact that coziness is the main factor to me when buying clothing, but hey – cozy outfits can be fashionable and here’s the proof:

Home vs Fashion

It’s so fascinating to see the thin line between fashion and interior design, isn’t it? As much as the two industries seem to be different, at the end of the day they go hand in hand from every perspective. Perhaps less when it comes to texture, but a lot when we’re speaking about color and I love seeing the similarity between fashion and home decor, even more putting them together and look closely at how colors blend, how a piece of art can look so good on a dress etc.

Color+inspiration: pink & neon yellow

I’m mesmerized by how well the combination of pink and neon yellow works both in home decor and fashion! I mean not that I’m surprised, fashion-wise this is a match made in heaven, but who knew that these two modern and so bright colors will perfectly blend in interior design? This post pretty much proved it to me a while back though – let’s just say it struck me harder today :). I’m in love with unexpected color combos and at this point neon yellow and pink is on top of my favorites. What’s your fave color combo at the moment?

The pumps are gorgeous too, but check how insanely good-looking is that Jonathan Adler serving bowl? Don’t think it can get any better. Or it can – neon yellow bed and a hot pink bedding? Pretty awesome:

I’m sold, now just to convince the husband about how cool would we be if we paint our room in pink and add punches of neon yellow :). I better forget about it.

Summer getaway: the outfits

Let’s talk fashion today, shall we? Since I’m 18 weeks pregnant now, the husband and I decided it’s the perfect time to plan a summer getaway or the so called babymoon (pre-baby vacation). So we were thinking that instead of going to the beach we’ll go urban this time, meaning we’ll choose a few European countries to visit and we’ll just walk and walk, seeing new cultures, new people, new places. I’m so excited and cannot wait (although we still didn’t decide where exactly are we going). So obviously, the first thing I thought about was what outfits I’ll wear while wandering around, but I’m pretty sure my outfits will sum up to two combinations – check them out:

Shorts, a cute top and sandals – what can be more perfect for long walks under the hot summer sun? All spiced up with a neon nail polish and some jewelry that pops out right away – bliss!

I think this outfit is my favorite as I’m loving the look of a maxi dress on a pregnant woman – it just feels so feminine :). The unexpected detail in this outfit is the bright polish and the lipstick – must find the perfect coral lipstick asap!

Well, that’s it – the ultimate summer outfits that rock my world this season are pretty simple yet not boring – I’m a firm believer that less is more :). Plus I’ll need a lot of comfy clothing, hence the lack of heels and I’m totally ok with that!

Do you imagine your vacation without one pair of heels?!

31 Bits jewelry

Happy Monday to all! Today we’ll kick off the week with a slightly different approach meaning this day isn’t about chic interiors, but bits of fashionable jewelry – 31 Bits to be more precise. 31 Bits is a brand selling handmade jewelry that comes all the way from Uganda! The idea came up to Kallie Dovel in 2007, coming to a life in 2008 and blooming ever since. The team behind 31 Bits works on a regular basis with a group of women from Uganda who create necklaces, bracelets and more from recycled paper and it all looks fabulous! What impressed me a lot is that 31 Bits offers several educational programs to those women - English lessons, finance training, health education etc. – worth being admired, don’t you think?

Fashion weekend: Mihano Momosa

With all this  NYFW fever I thought a good idea would be to add my two cents on the topic, because even though I’m crazy about chic interiors, my heart melts at the sight of ruffled dresses, flirty skirts and romantic collections, even more when all this goodness is created by a Serbian designer! The brand Mihano Momosa is like a breath of fresh air in the Serbian fashion industry and it literally takes you to a whole new level when it comes to clothing – it’s that good. Mihano Momosa creations are a dream come true – a feminine and romantic touch in our modern world.

Color report: Tangerine Tango

You probably all heard that Pantone named the color of 2012 Tangerine Tango. Just like its last year’s sister – honeysuckle – tangerine is a rich, bright hue which leaves a big impact on a room if used right. Accessories, a wall, a rug or a sofa will bring a cheery vibe into your home, tangerine will simply make your space warmer, happier, more modern and home-y. Of course, tangerine will be equally often used in fashion industry (I think the trend was clearly seen already in 2011, right?). Lipstick, nail polish, silky dresses – all tangerine colored will definitely make for a bright year!

Mustard

Mustard is having its comeback this season and I couldn’t be more thrilled. I blogged about this color last year and my obsession with it didn’t fade remaining one of the most fall-friendly color crushes. The richness and heaviness of mustard make it a gorgeous alternative to traditional fall colors, a perfect compromise between yellow and brown and a warm stylish hue on its own. Mustard for him, for her and their home – what’s not to love?
