{fashion meets interior design: color block}

Color blocking is a hot trend for spring/summer 2011. I just love all the inspiration these vibrant hues give, and you can't help but feel happy surrounded by so much color! So how is this trend translating into our interiors? Well it may be for the brave at heart, but color-saturated spaces look lively and lovely!!











Bold and beautiful! Even though I am surrounded by grey & white in my own home, I can't help being drawn to these vibrant colors.

It is the 80's all over again! Hoping to add more colour blocks in my living room without it looking to garish! We'll see if I can be brave enough.

I love all of these bright pops of colour! But I'm sticking to my palette of white, greys and greiges and will live vicariously through other braver souls. :)
