Spring is finally here! There were days when I thought it would never come! I was bound and determined to post some inspiration today since I have been down with a bug for almost 3 weeks now. I spent my entire birthday with a fever and chills in bed. (I am NOT counting my birthday this year because of it!) Today temperatures should reach 65 and the sun is already peeking out from behind a few puffy clouds. It's going to be a very good day.
Today's inspiration is about accent colors. The premise of the "A Vintage White style" revolves around neutral basics (whether it be tans, creams or whites). With each new season I love to change out my accessories with an accent color to breathe new life into my surroundings. The thought behind my style of decorating is that basics will serve you for quite a few years and if they are a non-neutral color, I find myself tiring of them after a short while and then either having to doll out a lot of cash to replace them or worse yet, living with them after my mind and heart tell me I am over them (brutal). So I invest in good basics in neutrals and add seasonal accent colors (I choose pale colors) to freshen it up. Seasonal accents are usually less expensive and are so fun to shop for. Above you will see that I put together a composition with my favorite accent color of blush - a soft blend of pinky peach. In future posts I will be adding compositions with various other accent colors to show how versatile and refreshing decorating with the basic "A VIntage White style" can be.
