Appareled Abode

It's been a while since I last posted. I have been working on a lot of design projects and life has gotten very busy. I took a break from Linen & Gold to start working on a new site launching this month called Appareled Abode.

It has been something I have been working on for quite some time now and decided to just finally start the new site. It's a blog all about fashion inspired decor. I have some other great lifestyle topics on the blog like Currently Coveting, Beauty, and Cocktail of the Month and as the site grows you will also be able to Shop the Looks featured on the blog posts.

The site is active now, I have a few posts in the works and am adding more daily this week. We will have so many great fashion and home decor products featured along with some amazing guests you will be excited to see!

This is going to be quite a journey for me and I hope you all decide to come along for the ride!

Dreaming In Indigo

I am smitten with Indigo right now. I love the color and to me it is the new Emerald.  Mark my words....Indigo is going to be the new trending color. I can't tell you how often I find myself choosing items in this color, it's seriously like a magnet.  Indigo is easy to pair both complimentary colors as well as contrasting and I love all the combinations.

In home decorating and styling you can either choose to use indigo as the accent color or as the main focal color. I tend to like the latter.  Pair indigo with accents or coral, orange, yellow, white, emerald, or a combo of two of the mentioned colors. Here is some inspiration!

Here are some of my favorite indigo pieces to style your home.

Perfect Pairing - Appareled Abode

Happy Happy Friday! Can you believe it's almost mid July? Where has this summer gone? After the 4th I always feel like it just flies by so quickly. There is still enough time to rock all your fun summer clothes.  I have said it before and I will say it again and again...I love the color combo of indigo and tangerine. I love it so much I decided to make this weeks installment of Appareled Abode about just that!
