Color Inspiration: I love color and white almost equally. I feel like my personality matches my home and frequently find myself wearing the same colors as i have displayed in my house (by accident most times). I enjoy studying fashion as much as I do interior design...

Color Inspiration continued:...so am inspired almost daily by a beautiful fabric or pattern used on a dress or blouse. I scour over blogs and magazines, bookmarking and ripping out pages of everything from a beautiful vase full of peonies to a trellis print wallpaper to a Tory Burch tunic pattern.
I've always been drawn to pink but since i share my home with my husband, I tend to decorate with darker, more masculine pinks. I also find pink to be a great color to combine with my other favorite colors: orange, green & turquoise.
Colors Used: Walls are Ralph Lauren Water Wheel Falls.
Pink velvet chairs are from Room and Board.
Chocolate brown and white fabric on ottoman is Lulu DK.
Color Tip: Approach color in a cohesive way...every room in my house is coordinated somehow with the rooms around it. I love to use a bright white for trim and a neutral for most of the walls but then tuck in color where it surprises you. My kids' bedroom has 6 built in cubes painted bright orange against neutral walls. I painted the inside of a built in bookcase at the top of my staircase a dark pink with neutral walls around it.
