Laissez les Bon Temps….Design!

So today is FAT TUESDAY!!!    I live vicariously through all of my Louisiana friends because this is by far one of the most entertaining holidays of the year.  Parades, food, beads, masks, music….oh my goodness!

Now, what does Fat Tuesday have in common with Design?  I’ll show you!

Most of us have seen the Pantone Colors of the Year for Spring 2013.  Notice anything?  Right there–Emerald, Lemon Zest and African Violet!!  Well how ’bout that!  Mardi Gras colors…..

I began thinking how these exciting colors relate to interiors.  Okay, stay with me here…. I don’t intend to point out how you can use ALL THREE of these colors together.  No no, I’m not that literal.  But, you’d be surprised how often you see these colors throughout interiors!!
