Over the summer, people have been obsessed with bright colors. People are walking around in neon colored shorts, shoes, jeans, etc. I think this fall a lot of that is going to take a huge turn. Over the last year industrial design styles have been creeping their way into the scene more and more. I wouldn’t say they are on the forefront of trendy, since right now bright colors and aztec seem to be the way to go, but it’s definitely getting there and I think this fall it’s going to be a big thing. People are obsessing over these moody masculine rustic spaces with a lot of raw texture. And why wouldn’t they? These types of spaces create a lot of raw natural beauty.
Color blocking has been a new trend lately. I’ve seen it mostly in fashion, especially right now in August, but I think the trend is quickly moving to interiors and architecture. Many people might be scared of color blocking, especially in their home because a lot of people get anxiety over picking out paint colors. Color blocking is usually always a strong relationship of contrasting colors, but if done the right way, it can really look amazing. Here are some of my favorites that use color blocking and I encourage people to try it out. It’s only paint — you can paint over it if you don’t like it. 🙂
Right now the trend is to use bright saturated colors, but if that’s too much for you, color blocking can be done in other ways too. I tried to provide more conservative examples below.
Hey everyone! So just a little background info – my name is Nicole and I’m pursuing my B.F.A. of Interior Design. I’m interested in all things design, beauty, and art related so I decided to start a blog to document my interests and to also help other people find unique personal styles, whether it be in fashion, beauty, or in their home.
I decided to do my first blog post on a little nail art design. The design is nothing fancy, but I think the red-orange and tan colors are a unique combination. Personally I’ve always struggled with red as a color, probably because when I was 4 I ate too many cherry popsicles and got really sick so ever since then I’ve struggled with anything cherry flavored or remotely red in color. Lately I’ve been trying to add more red to my wardrobe, even if it is just by adding red-orangue hues, and I’ve been taking baby steps to do that.
I chose to use Julep – Kennedy and Julie G – Sugar Rush together to do a diagonal pattern with polk-a-dots. I hadn’t used either nail polishes before, but each one went on nicely and I will probably use them again in the future. Kennedy by Julep is a beautiful tan color however it looks a bit more yellow on the nail than it does in the bottle. That doesn’t really bother me since I think the yellowness of the color goes well with the red-orange diagonal. Sugar Rush by Julie G is a dark orange, with red undertones and gold flecks. It isn’t supposed to get a top coat because it’s apart of the Frosted Gum Drops collection at Rite Aide and it is supposed to be a textured nail polish, but I had to because my nails chip too easily since I work in a restaurant. I think it looks just as beautiful with a top coat on.
I couldn’t resist wearing my snake ring I found at Old Navy earlier this summer. I don’t know if it is still there or not, since I found it in the clearance section.
What do you guys think? What are your favorite colors to use on nails or in your wardrobe?
