Color chips from the paint store can also be used to help you design your wardrobe. Some of the color chip cards also have a photo on the back of other colors they suggest to go with the main color. Put the samples in a zip bag and tuck them in your purse so you have them at the clothing or fabric store. Don’t get too hung up on matching it perfectly; you just want to be in the same ballpark.
On the Nate Berkus show he featured a choir building he decorated in black, yellow and white. It’s not a color scheme I ever would have chosen. It’s a bit too ‘bumblebee’ for me. But it came out really nice. The next day I saw two teenage girls wearing outfits in yellow, black and white. It looked nice, and I’m keeping an open mind. As you can see in the photo in the next post, I picked up color cards in yellow, black and white.
The purples are a color I’d love to wear or do an office in. A massage therapist with the office next to me once had the purple color scheme. It was very relaxing and calming, which is what you want in a healing environment.
