Like this room....the walls are intense, but all the black and white accents help to ground it and make it less 'In yo face!'
(do you see that zebra mirror?!) sorry, no photo credit???
One of my favorite bloggers posted this beautiful dining room in the same combo:
I'm not insinuating that green is a big leap in to the color world, but some people are just more comfortable in neutrals. But pairing a vibrant color with black or white, is the equivalent of following up a nasty comment with 'Bless her heart!' It lessens the blow.
My first inclination with this green skirt is to pair it with another color on the wheel, but sometimes I need to exercise restraint too. And nothing is really more chic and classic than white or black.
Outfit deets: shirt - harolds (rip), belt - f21, skirt - banana republic, shooz - bandalino
You like it...or Bless my heart?
