Olive Oil and Sangria

Olive Oil and Sangria

a savory, sumptuous color duo that's decadent, rich and full of flavor. 

Color Craze: Olive Oil and Sangria - Painting by Unknown ArtistBenjamin Moore Paints show you just how grand this color combo can be when used in a small space. the left side of the image below looks like a one piece sitting/wall unit but it is actually a clever use of their paint color, Vintage Wine and strategically placed shelving and antiqued clothing hooks highlighted by Olive Tree walls.

the right side of the image creatively illustrates an eclectic use of furniture and accessories in the complementary colors to form a sophisticated reading space.

food is not only nourishment for our bodies and taste buds but when created artfully, it can be appealing to the eye as well. i felt like I'd been tapped by a magic wand when I came across the food styling and photographic artistry in colors much like our duo of Aimee Twigger of Twigg Studios in the UK. her recipe for the Earl Grey Ice Cream captured below is equally divine too! the Twigg Studios Instagram page smolders!

pinks and greens are naturally occurring in nature and fashion. When our eyes glimpse these two vibrant shades together, a natural smile occurs. Individually, they say "happy", "spirited" and "lively".

as fall approaches, we crave colors that wrap us in luxurious comfort, subtle radiance and sumptuous softness. you can almost see the sweetness. wear these colors when you want lusciousness and delectable. add accents in gold for more glam. perhaps a set of bangles and a pair of statement studs?
