I so often think of fashion as a true source of comfort. For me, putting on an outfit that gives me confidence is the true definition of fashion's power. I tend to have a uniform: only neutrals with an emphasis on black, taupe, winter white and grey. I didn't realize it was obvious until a friend asked what I was wearing to a girl's night a few weeks ago. I replied, and she said, "Oh, typical Wendy" which after I paused, took as a compliment. I love that I have a signature style.
It motivated me to think about how I design our homes, whether I use the same formula? It turns out I do. For our lake house, I decided before we broke ground that only colors found in a petrified wood stump would be used throughout the house. The only exceptions are the spots of color in many of our vintage pieces, like tiled Pia Manu or Roger Capron tables. I love the result. It's calming and serene with a tad bit of drama.
We all have our signatures, turns out mine are textured neutrals. At least I'm consistent.
