Do Your Clothes Match Your Home?

Do Your Clothes Match Your Home?

Interior designers often suggest looking in your closet for color scheme ideas. The assumption is that if you like a color enough to wear it, you'll like it on your walls as well. This isn't exactly true for me - I wear a lot of black and, although I've seen some black walls I've really liked, it's not a color I'd use in my own home...

On the other hand, I'm a big fan of light-colored neutral walls, so maybe my wardrobe is telling me that I like to stick to the basics when it comes to color. I also tend to buy brightly colored bags and, in my home, I use a few bright pieces of furniture to liven things up. When I think about it, I guess my clothing style isn't too far from my decorating style.

What about you? Do your clothes match your home, or is your style of dress completely different from your style of decorating?
