Trend Right- Color Blocking

In past blogs I have talked about how to extend or translate 2013 fashion trends, such as the hot new color, green, or Ikat patterns, into your bedroom. Now I am obsessed with color blocking in fashion.

For example you might find a color-blocked dress in a color-scheme, or you can create your own color-block outfit by pairing a contrasting top and skirt together. I am seeing it in dresses, tops and sweaters everywhere. I must confess, I've already purchased a few color blocked dresses.

I found these fashion examples on a
favorite blog of mine,


You can interpret this 2013 spring trend into the bedroom with a few of these patterns on  Beddingstyle.

Be bold this spring and give color blocking a try.

Have a great week,
