Ever since the Orla Kiely Lust List post, I can’t get this beautiful and mysterious color out of my head. It’s deep rich tone that pairs so perfectly with sparkles is ideal for holiday parties and everyday wear alike. I love the moodiness it can give off in furniture like that cabinet and chair as well as its ability to be matched with rose gold in an unexpected watch. So versatile and wonderful for the season.

I’m not sure why, but I’ve always loved pastels. Maybe because I’ve always had a soft spot for the 50′s. You can imagine my excitement when I saw that pastels were on their way in this season. I thought I’d start off with pastel yellows, which are way more fun than just for baby showers at which you don’t know the gender yet! Love it especially paired with bright white and patterns.

Daydream In Rust

With Autumn upon us, I thought it fitting to finally think in Fall colors. Goodness knows I’ve been in denial about the seasons changing. I love my Pacific Northwest summer so very much! It’s funny how swimming in the river can brainwash you quickly into a sun-aholic. However, the thought of the rustling leaves, pumpkin pie, cinnamon, hot apple cider, and visits to the corn maze and pumpkin patch pull me back together. I forgot how much I love Autumn too. So, to remind myself and you how beautiful Autumn is, today we’re going to daydream together in the lovely reddish brown hue of rust. Rust reminds me of seeking out vintage goodies at an outdoor flea, but it’s  also such a great Autumn staple to decorate your home and fill your closets as you watch the leaves change into this beautifully rich color!

Daydream in Mint

By Ron Whitfield from Positive Posters

So, I have a confession. I have a secret obsession with the light, refreshing, and retro feel of the color that is mint. This all began when I was little and I rode to elementary school everyday on a mint Huffy with white tires. The thorns at the school were determined to make it impossible to ride, but I was even more determined to fix every flat it gave me. Then, in college I decided to get a bike having not since ridden since then. I tried out a bunch of really crappy bikes, and finally I went to a fancy bike shop and found the bike of my dreams in, of course, mint. Now that I think about it I may have been more in love with the color than the bike. The bike was completely out of my price range as a student and I opted for a 2nd hand one later on, but I have never stopped daydreaming about that awesome breezy bike and imagining myself riding to a park with a picnic in my wicker basket.

The resurgence of my love of mint all started with recently winning a shopping tote from Fabric & Handle from Design Darling. Salinya from F&Hwas such a sweetheart to work with when discussing the details of my tote. I chose the gorgeous Amite with light tan straps, which was a refreshing mint linen with small details in the fabric. It arrived in a drawstring dust bag, which made the reveal all the more exciting. The tote had  beautiful and durable matching lining and sturdy touchable leather straps that are so smartly adjustable with button snaps! I used it the whole weekend at Summer School PDX and everyone kept asking about it. They come in such great colors that somehow can act like a neutral to match your every outfit. (Picture below of Amite by Fabric & Handle.)

I thought it was totally appropriate since this week was the start of summer to daydream in a little bit of refreshing mint! In fact, my nails are painted mint as I inspiredly type up this post.
