Ok listen friends. I know you guys are sick of me talking about yellow, but YE-LLOW it is still so happening. Not only will the yellow that we've been predicting finally hit the shop in both fashion and home, but the volume was turned all the way up at NYFW. Get ready to embrace NEON all over again. Before you put on your roller skates and go head first onto the 80's train, know that you can still keep it sophisticated, eclectic, and chic with just hints of neon. Let's face it, a little bit goes a long way with this one, so choose wisely. Even though this may seem a little scary think of this as injecting a little energy into your space. We've been quite sleepy for a while in the pastel utopia place, so it is time to swing the pendulum the other way and amp things up a bit. The good news is this neon yellow is actually a great compliment to the ubiquitous blush and the whole range of pastels. It is a great little pop of fun and life in a neutral space and is a total knock out against all the black interiors we have been loving. Go on, put on your sunglasses and glow baby glow.

Seeing (Leopard) Spots
Love it or hate it - the animal print is here and here in a big way. On the runways we are seeing it head to toe and everything in between. This is one look that demands to be seen. BUT, you can put your toe in the water and create small moments that scream restraint and elegance. Prime example, the perfect little leopard pair of ballet flats, a statement clutch against your LBD, or a couple of throw pillows to totally transform the energy in the room. If you are ready to get bold with the big cats experiment with a side chair that makes a statement, an area rug, or even a reupholstered chaise.

Plaid To Meet Yah!
There is something very alluring about this trend. I always love to create a push and pull with the masculine and feminine and this is the perfect way to play with this concept. I love to see a traditional feeling plaid paired with very soft feminine fabrics and florals. The contrast is always so interesting. This is also a great way to compromise beautifully in the ever present battle of satisfying him and her in a space.

Eyes on Mint and Coral
You guys, I am sooooo happy that my yellow friend is FINALLY getting her day - FINALLY. But alas, we are already looking ahead because I can smell your next color crush coming down the pipe. Don't sleep on mint or coral friends. They will be a little more saturated than the blush place we have been in (forever), but they will still have that light sweetness we've been loving. The magic in these two coming on is how well they will work with where we are right now. Both of these will work back to navy, the deep greens coming on now, gold, bronze, blush, and black and white. They will also be very interesting pops with the variety of spice tones we are apt to see this fall. I love color stories right now because they are evolving with us as opposed to creating a complete about face. This is much more practical for the way people are shopping for both their closets and their homes.

Highlight: Tom Ford
I barely have the words for this show and all this ridiculous inspiration. Tom Ford again and again breaks the mold. This show was exquisite and yet another loud and clear reminder the unapologetic luxury is back. Permission granted to live out loud!
