Welcome to our first weekly Fashion Friday blog post, YAY! Every Friday from now on we’ll have a post called Fashion Friday. This will feature what’s hot and trendy in the fashion world and show you how you can incorporate it into your home! Fashion design and interior design go hand in hand, and now we’re going to show you how you can pull from you own personal taste in fashion and make it a part of your home as well as your wardrobe.

The first trend we will be featuring is the color BLUE. Blue is versatile color that can go with well with many other shades.  It also has a wide range of emotions that can be drawn from it.  It can bring a freshness to a room or create a soothing feeling. Bright turquoises and cobalts can add a pop of color, where as navy blues and soft gray blues can tone down a room without boring you to death.

Here’s how blue can create a fresh summery look in fashionHere are some examples of how different shades of blue can create a unique feel to different rooms. 

^ The light blues in this room mixed with the brown and cream give this room a fresh look

^ The darker blues mixed with the greys and wood details give this room a rustic feel.

^In this room the navy blues is added in the accents in the pillows, lamp shade and the wall paint.

^Turquoise can be a sassy color, but notice how it doesn’t scream at you as much when paired with beige.

These are a variety of blue fabric swatches that we pulled at 4 Love

As you can see blue is a very versatile color that create a wide variety of emotions.  Blue is one of the most basic colors and one of the easiest to decorate. And its gender neutral, which is great when you want to add color to a room without it becoming too feminine.
