Color-blocking in the fashion world has taken hold. However, it can be a challenge. Ann Curry's outfit this morning on Today was a bit stop-lightish. Yellow sweater, green pencil skirt, red shoes.
Fashion always seems to dictate home decor. And, I always think, if you wouldn't wear it you're not going to like it in your house.

I'm off to Atlanta this weekend for a friend's engagement party and shower. Talk to y'all Monday! 

Some examples (that I think work) of color-blocking in interior design:

Color-blocking with pattern works too. Vivid art on a backdrop of a bold color with white accents works well in this room.

A little fuzzy, but the long lumbar pillow on the sofa is a good interpretation of the blockage.

Coral + Turquoise (that kind of coral - reddish orange) are a great combo.

Another Turquoise + Coral room, a little moodier.

Barrie Benson, an interior designer in Charlotte, designed this room, I love the variation of complex greens.

A dining room focused on white with dashes of vibrant color. I love this, but the first thing I think is red wine.

Jonathan Adler is a color-blocker.
Color-blocking can be very very mod.

More neutral take on colorblocking. To the nice lady that bought my red chippendale chairs, look how nice they are as an accent!

Have a fantastic weekend!
