Remember the show The Nanny?
Hum along with me now:
she was “the lady in red while everyone else was wearing tan”.
Leopard print, chartreuse, hot pink stilettos …
no look was too extreme for Fran the Nanny.
So, while we may not be rocking head to toe red jumpsuits while squeezing grapefruits in the supermarket aisles,
we can let loose our inner wild child and embrace color in our homes!
Like this notice me wall in my dining room.
Those are coloring book pages!
Baby steps …
start with a bold pillow!
Or start a colorful collection and group them together for maximum impact.
This red chest in my entrance is the equivalent of the red jumpsuit …
plus she gets lots of hoots and hollers!
Or have fun with cabinet colors like in my mudroom.
You can always take it outside …
pick a bold color like my planter dresser in peacock blue.
So here’s to embracing all the colors of the rainbow.
