Fashion & Color From Matchbook Mag

April 2, 2012

The new April issue of Matchbook mag just went live and I’m loving the bright bursts of color and the fashion spreads. They’ve totally energized me today – hope that they do the same for you. What colors are you into at the moment anyway? I was just thinking about how much I want to work with peach, copper, mint and neon orange so I think I’ll put something together around that palette. Any color crushes that you’ve having lately?

Beautiful spreads, Matchbook girls! Juicy fruity colors definitely work on this gray Spring day for me…

    I’m all over mint green, and yellow at the moment – both together and separately.

    The inspiration board with the yellow backdrop is so striking and loving the rolled up shirt sleeves in shades of pink. So cheering!

    I was thinking the same thing when browsing Matchbook this morning! The Palm Beach meets New York colors were to die for.

    I ADORE those portraits on the wall in the first photo.

    a mocha brown, off white and turquoise that my husband used in the basement really look good – and remind me of my favorite Trophy Cupcakes colors! Also in to what maybe are sorbet colors – peach/orange, maroon pink, mint green – from Leslie’s color blog and from the gelato up the street – maybe I’m just hungry!

    I’m currently loving fuchsia with copper/gold – seen in Dinosaur Designs latest plum wishbone bangle; and on ‘The Hunger Games’ Effie Trinket’s lips when she calls out the names of District 12 tributes.

    Oh my gosh I am so into orange…I always thought of it as a Autumn color and was feeling confused why I was so into it now. But look how bright and bold and spring looking it is in this post, love it!

    Love the bursts of pink!! This says spring to me in so many ways! Love it!

  • Reply Jessica @shimmerkai April 4, 2012 at 10:37 pm

    I’m definitely into spring palettes right now…lighter shades that fade to dark. Sea green/teals + a pop of orange is amazing too!

    I like the orange and pink shade. Very summer and vibrant. What’s your favorite color by the way? Mine’s pink.

    These pictures are all so very pretty. I love the idea of the clothes as a design element but strongly suspect my boyfriend would believe I had lost my marbles if I started hanging my prettiest clothes all about the flat :)

  • Reply Michelle April 10, 2012 at 7:23 pm

    One of the things that excite me this summer is the use of bright colors. You have an impressive selection. I just love the blouses, they are just what I need to maintain being fresh and cool this summer.

  • Reply Brooke H April 18, 2012 at 6:24 am

    What a wonderful color post! I’ll certainly be checking out Matchbook.

  • Reply Homely Style October 28, 2012 at 3:47 pm

    Those are really happy and lovely colors!

  • Reply Elli August 22, 2014 at 11:42 am

    I prefer pink, peach and mint green! Your images look inspiring. I like the one with hanging pictures and pink pillows. Also, the vase motive makes it look interesting and fashionable. For me, colors are very important to have them at home and generally in daily life!
