Color in Review: The Year of the Craze
2019 was an incredible year of color for me. I started this blog to share my lifelong love of vivid hues and palettes and to show how the power of color impacts our everyday lives in ways we may not realize. My Color Craze year began with Living Coral, an energetic, alive hue that was Pantone's Color of the Year and a reminder that despite the refreshing chill of customary winter hues, classic spring and summer colors reign supreme.

For Spring/Summer 2019, my first Color Trends Report was a palette I felt was fresh, invigorating, and bold enough to command attention in a statement making year. And it just so happens that my favorite non-toxic nail polish brand has a color selection so huge that I was able to find a matching polish for every color!
With the high level energy of those Spring and Summer colors, I wanted assure that the volume remained cranked up with a dynamic palette for Fall and Winter.
Now we are beginning a new decade and I predict that the colors that will impact us most will be those that elicit a feeling of comfort and best express our desire for an overall sense of ease. Concurrently, in these times of a heightened need to protect our individuality, we will be drawn to palettes that highlight our creativity with energy and optimism.
Thank you for joining me on my journey in color this past year. I hope you'll continue to follow my journey as I bring you new and exciting ways to incorporate color into your life for maximum impact and influence.
Live life in color!
