My style is feminine, but not saccharine, so when it comes to choosing colors (for my clothes, makeup, or home), I tend to shy away from anything that’s too girly or precious. One of my favorite ways to make color feel more “grown up” is by mixing pastel shades with variations of grey, which allows me to use the season’s pretties hues, but update it in a way that’s much cooler (both in terms of color palette and just figuratively speaking.) This little rule-of-thumb especially works well when it comes to home décor: I just love mixing and matching shades of blush and lilac with the neutral.

Right now, I’m especially partial to light shades of purple mixed with grey. I find myself gravitating (or mixing!) this hue in everything, from home accent pieces to nail polishes, to prints on my clothing and even eye shadow (try it, it works surprisingly well!). Just scroll through my inspiration board above, and you’ll see what I mean.

That’s why I’m excited to partner with a new retailer that totally gets how I like to work with color. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be undertaking a big project to incorporate my favorite hue in an unexpected (but pretty major) way. Have I intrigued you? Stay tuned to find out what I’m up to!
