Bold Moves

A very Happy Monday everyone!

So, last week I confessed that the Olympics has me hooked. Well this weekend I pretty much went nuts as Jamaica won Gold medals in both the men's and women's 100 metres. The ladies did a clean sweep while Usain Bolt clocked a world record 9.69 and Trinidad and Tobago's Richard Thompson nabbed silver. Big up my Caribbean peeps!

So what does all this have to do with interior design? Why an awesome color combo, of course! Black, gold and green is a snappy palette that looks really fresh when paired with bright white. Whether it's a sunny yellow chair; a graphic tome; or a sassy paper suitcase, this bold palette will certainly add zing. Enjoy!

Yep. That flag stands out and it's been a joy to see these last few days.
Big up Jamaica's fashion forward founding fathers. ;-)
