Do Your Home and Closet Match?

CCC

 A great way to design a color palette for your home (and for your garden) is to start in your closet. What colors are dominant? My closet and my home are largely blue and pink. More specifically, navy blue, coral pink, hot pink, and blush pink. And stripes in both - especially blue and white stripes. Since moving to Florida, there are also more tropical colors in both my home and wardrobe. 
 

I would love to know if your closet and your home match too. What is your color palette and if they are not the same, why the difference? Over the years, often when I have posted on a room with pink, I get a comment that "I would love to use pink in my house, but my husband won't let me." Cringe....

Here are some peeks at my closet.

  2. Your closet is pretty and so wonderfully girly…I mean feminine lol.
    I’d say that mine matches my home too. Minimal with lots of navy and white and pops of pinks/red/orange!

  3. I do believe that you will be happiest when your style is your style in the home, garden, or clothing. Thom Filicia had a show on TV years ago called Dress My Nest, where he decorated a room based on 3 favorite items in your wardrobe.

  4. We seem to be operating in the same color palette, Beth. I actually think that certain pinks can be quite sophisticated, and are very often flattering to people's complexions.

    Please tell me where you found the pink and white handbag that looks like a beach ball. It's wonderful!

    1. It is a Kate Spade handbag - a hot air balloon. Unfortunately a limited edition and no longer available. I have been collecting Kate Spade since her first collection.

  5. Beth, the treasures at Home Goods find you; they want to live in your house.

    1. Pretty much, LOL. And HomeGoods is dog friendly, so the pups get to come along and help.

  7. I notice that you have a "Nap" dress in your closet--in pinks and ecru with seashells on it. Do you like the dress? And how do you wear it?

    1. I have ten and the family is growing. The one you are referencing is the Mermaid print from their latest drop. I wear them constantly in my house and going out with a great pair of sandals, statement earrings, and a straw bag. I get loads of compliments. They are such favorites.

  8. Love your frames on the rose prints. Wondering is you had them done or they came that way. I have a wonderful very vintage book of prints that I would like to get some done, but it costs an arm and a leg, considering that I want a whole bunch! I was thinking of doing it myself if I could source the frames I would like.

    1. The camellia prints are antique and I had them professionally framed. For cost effective framing, I would look at ready made frames at Michael's and frames on Etsy.
