Tonal Tuesday: comfort & cool

Tonal Tuesday: comfort & cool

I’ve been craving mac ‘n’ cheese (yes, that evil blue box). It’s the best comfort food I know. The color scheme has also got me thinking of goldfish swimming. Sunshine. Bicycle rides. Summer.

Tonal Tuesday: macaroon & marshmellow

My sweet tooth is aching for cookies, cotton candy & chocolate. Thinking fluffy pink clouds and sugar high. Laying in the grass at sunset, snacking on sugary things and staring up at the pink hues of dusk. Perfect.

Tonal Tuesday: dusty daydreams

These colors are for laying in fields & braiding flower crowns in vintage dresses. Wistful, a little dusty & worn but beautiful nonetheless.

Tonal Tuesday: float on a dream

Saccharine sweet & childish dreaming. Cotton candy, blue skies, green grass, yellow sun & vanilla ice cream. Children’s stories with happy endings. Perfect nursery rhyme color scheme.

ooh…headers!

Tonal Tuesday: Tart 'n' Tangy

Let’s combat some stormy weather with acid brights. I generally wear black, white & grey but have been adding bright yellow rainboots, my lime green purse & a hot pink umbrella to counteract the grey skies. Sort of like a candy bomb.

Tonal Tuesday: real easy now

Let’s get neutral now. Clean, calm & comfort- a homier version of modern minimalist with dark, rich black and brown wood tones & leather. Lots of soft textiles in pale taupes & creams. Real easy now, soothing & zen.
