Happy Weekend and welcome to the series combo of Why This Works and Fashion Friday all rolled into one post! With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to find a room and outfit inspired by the whimsical colors of the holiday! With hues of pinks included in main living spaces, I can only take it in small doses. This room strikes the perfect balance for me… enjoy!
When you tire of this vibrant color, it can easily be switched out in this room- the pillows, art, lamp shade and flowers can be traded out for several other colors. This space has a very versatile color palette and allows so many other choices in the future. I love that the walls, seating and area rug are very neutral and light, allowing the gold and magenta to take center stage! The black detail in the armchair, bench and coffee table ground the space so well. The small touch of chrome in the end table makes the space feel sleek and stylish, while the subtle details of stripes in the area rug and zebra on the bench add texture and interest. Overall, this space works!
For this outfit, I stuck with the same color palette of gold, magenta and black. I thought it would be fun to also include an animal print blouse, since the living space had such an amazing zebra hide bench. And with the weather feeling like spring in so many places right now, why not make this a spring inspired outfit!
