As always the fashion runway gives us in the interior design field, the color trends headed out way. " Color Blocking " has been around since I was a fashion stylist at Nordstrom in the 1980's but some how it gets recycled every so often as a new trend. Here it is again in the Fall issue of Vogue magazine. People want to live with color more than just during the summer months. So how do you input color into your interior design without looking like a comic strip? Just like the models pictured above...black, sand,white and gray are perfect grounding colors for all those primary colors. Start with a neutral pallete and add one or two vibriant colors.
