It is officially the first day of spring. Yay . This is absolutely one of my favorite times of the year. I love seeing the trees and flowers in bloom, and I love all the hot new spring fashions. One huge trend you will see with spring fashion, is color-blocking. In case you are not familiar with this term or trend, it is very simple. Color-blocking is when a garment or outfit is composed of finite blocks of color. This trend was first seen in 1960s and again in 1980s. This is a fairly simple trend to create, and wear. This is a great trend during this time of year, because of all the vibrant colors one can use. Take the images above. These are all great exmples of how to color-block. Have you tried this trend lately?
This palette was created using FolkArt acrylic paint colors: Apple Spice #951, Aqua #2580, Parisian Pink #2233, and Peach Fuzz #2489

Yay! I don’t know about you, but I am so glad that summer is ending, and fall is fast approaching. The summer weather here in Atlanta for the past few months has been unbearable. The fall months will definitely offer a much needed cool down for us. With my anticipation for the fall season, I began to think about fall themed interiors. There are such wonderful color palettes to create from fall themed colors, and use in a room. A palette that caught my attention was from this living room I found on a home interior decorating blog called, Well Order. I really love the mixture of light and dark colors. This room definitely screams fall. It is vibrant, yet soothing. I hope this palette inspires you to add some touches of fall to the room of your choice.
We created this color palette using FolkArt Acrylic colors, #405 Parchment, # 2557 Moon Yellow, #462 Burnt Umber, and #503 Yellow Citron
