Months ago, Camille pitched fuchsia in our Color of the Month meeting. A more subdued hue won, but none of us could stop thinking about this vivacious shade of pink. With a summer surrounded by bright neons, I felt it was only right to end summer with a bold favorite that can easily take us right into the next season. Think fuchsia blazers and ballet flats. I’ve never been a true “pink girl,” so I like to use pink in small doses in my wardrobe and home (I may have a hot-pink vase and pillow). But, let me say this, I’ve seen a room covered in floor-to-ceiling fuchsia and it was a knock-out.

I’m the proud owner of a great house that came equipped with the world’s most hideous kitchen cabinets:
Horrible, huh? (Yes, that is contact paper peeling off the drawer. I know…ew.) A full kitchen remodel isn’t happening anytime soon, so I’m relying on the budget decorator’s best friend — paint — to make my cabinets more beautiful.
Since I’ll be giving the paneled walls a whitewash treatment, I’m leaning towards colorful cabinets to liven up my kitchen. I’m in love with the cool Caribbean blue of these cabinets designed by TD[S] Furniture + Cabinetry:
I have yet to dip my toes in the ocean this summer. That’s just crazy talk, right? As I plot my escape to the coastline, I’m dialing the tone of Mood Board Monday back a llllot with a hue that’s synonymous with summer and crashing waves. It also has a cool, retro look that makes it that much more perfectly suited for the season. (Imagine riding in that vintage seafoam green convertible below.) It’s close to mint green but a little more subdued. Dive in.

For my first Mood Board Monday, I chose a daring, bright red which I think perked everyone up. But this week, I felt like cooling things down a tiny bit with a hue I’ve loved since I was a child: tangerine. (Could this have something to do with being born and raised in Knoxville, TN, home of the Volunteers? I won’t deny it.) It’s considered warm on the color wheel, yet still feels refreshing. This lighter shade of orange pairs well with white or cream and can combine surprisingly well with other brighter colors, too.

What do you think of tangerine? Yes to orange clothes, but no to orange decor? (Or vice versa.) Share your thoughts in the comments below.

For the past few weeks I’ve been all about red. As I’m typing this, I’m wearing a lipstick-red dress with matching red nails in OPI’s “Tasmanian Devil Made Me Do It.” I. Love. Red. I knew for my inaugural mood board post, I wanted to pull in a favorite color (and one of this fall’s hottest hues). This is a bit brighter than classic red and it’s got a lacquered finish that truly shines.
What’s your take on this bold shade of red? Tell us in the comments below.
You know I love color in unexpected places, and I think a sink is definitely an unexpected place. If you’re like me but can’t commit to something like a custom hot pink sink, the Vola HV1 faucet may be for you.
Chances are you’ve already seen this iconic ’60s-era design by Arne Jacobsen, as had I, but I did not know it came in so many different hues. The bold blue plays well with the teak countertop in the middle image, as seen in at Mjölk shop in Toronto. The Skittle-like colors make me want to say “Taste the rainbow!” ‘Cause I’m thinking this rainbow is pretty tasty.
