White and gold is one of those trends that has been creeping up on us for quite a while now. Gold jewellery made its comeback a few seasons ago so its progression to home decor really shouldn’t come as a surprise.
Small touches of gold can make a room feel sophisticated yet completely modern. I love how white kind of tones down the gold which can seem ostentatious. I’ve incorporated the colour scheme in so many outfits, it was our Christmas table’s theme and it’s even my blogs wallpaper!
I think the trick is to find the right shade of gold, one that isn’t too yellow. A matte finish also helps prevent it looking too garish. Injecting the classic colour combination with some youth and fun in the form of polka dots is my favourite use of the trend.
Will you incorporate the colours into your home? Do you have any tips to share on making it look modern and sophisticated?
Eventhough it is winter, I’ve been drawn to this combination of pretty summery colours. They seem to work so well together, like best friends! It leave me yearning for a lovely beach vacation. So for everyone lucky enough to be or to be going somewhere where it is summer, here are my top picks to incorporate the colours into your beauty routine:
- Woolworths Lipstick Hydro Lips in Fuschia, R99,95 (shop online here)
- Revlon Colour Burst Lip Butter in Raspberry Pie, R115
- Estee Lauder in Startlit Pink, R265 (shop online here)
- Essie in Turquoise and Caicos, R100
- Revlon in Mint Candy Apple, R100
- Estee Lauder Nail Laquer in Dilettante, R215 (shop online here)
From Emma Stone and Kate Hudson’s Stella McCartney to Marion’s Dior, tangerine has been making a few appearances on the red carpet of late. I think it is safe to say that this Pantone colour of last year isn’t going anywhere soon! I prefer the look to be sleek and structural such as Rachel Weisz’s Victoria Beckham design with a sporty element to it, making the colour the focal point. So what do you think? Which is your favourite? Will you be attempting to pull of this convict colour or are you giving this trend a miss?
