Is that time of year again…spring yes, but also my favorite type of music festival here in California…Coachella!!! Its not just about the music that is the huge part of it, but what the fashion is…floral. I have notice in the fashion magazines and also in stores everything is over sized floral! Throughout history fashion and interiors floral were named Jacobean type, small scale so that you can fit so many floral woven and prints into a single yard for a chair or a dress. In today’s fashion it is still called Jacobean prints or woven but now they are oversize. (all images are from google image)

In today’s interior design world, i have seen more bright colors, also more floral type of fabrics and wallpapers as well. (all images are from google image)

 

This is not your typical grandmothers, or shabby chic floral but more with a 2016 twist. You can dress up your room with some bold oversize floral patterns!

Bouncing into spring 2016 I have noticed that new color for spring is Orange! What comes to mind for the color orange…an orange of course but also as everyone would know Hermes! (google image)

More importantly orange has a whole psychology behind the actually color, when I think of orange I think of warm sunny days. I found this list of orange describing words. (google image)

Now that we have some describing words, the meaning behind the color orange here are some fun interiors and fashion that I think will be popping up this spring. (all images from google images)

Grey not just a color…but a statement!

12145077_595733803907663_1037106721_nI have been lagging on writing a blog post in quite a while. More like a mental break. I love fashion and I love interior design but sometimes when you are living, breathing, sleeping, working it, you lose sight of what you really love and you push it away. Well I am back and stronger than ever to write more post.

Now that fall is fast approaching…summer clothing is set aside on the other side of the closet or in boxes under the bed. It’s time to bring out the fall and winter clothing… being from the golden state where the sun is always shining, most of my fall /winter clothing still have a hit of summer attached them…

Grey…when black and white are mixed together. Throughout fashion, gray has always been on trend…fashion magazines have always put grey in the spotlight but black and white have always been at the forefront. Going into fall/winter of 2015…grey is finally at the forefront of fashion and interior design. Just take Target…Adam Lippes…grey plaids and all grey colors. Some of my favorite fashion houses has been using the grey color in all of their collections. (all images are from google)
