Don't you agree? Everything starts with chemistry; fires, relationships, styles,decors, inventions, cooking, science,....etc. As a little kid I sucked at chemistry, but one thing I do remember; there are no bad ingredients, there are bad combinations. You mix bleach with vinegar, for instance, and you get toxic vapors (this is as far as my chemistry knowledge goes ;). This does not make bleach or vinegar bad, it's just that they don't work well together. Same applies to people. When two individuals don't get a long, it doesn't make one or the other evil. They are simply not compatible.
Same thing with color. All colors are beautiful, but there are bad color combinations. Sometimes though we think that certain colors won't look good together simply because we are taught this way. It takes some thinking outside the box and some experimenting to come up with new, fresh, harmonius combinations.
Take gray and brown for instance. My mind was set that brown looks great with gold, but not silver or gray. Well, now I totally disagree. I think brown and gray mix very well and create a beautiful, out of the box collage if done right. Make sure when you mix them in an outfit or a decor that you make on of the two colors the focal point and make sure that one of them is darker in shade than the other.
Let's see an example..
Top: Anne Fontaine (old)
Jeans: Vince (old)
Boots: Gucci brown leather horse bit logo boots (old)
Belt: Valentino black leather (old)
Necklace: Swarovski (old)
Purse: Gucci Suede purple shoulder bag (old) *on sale on my ebay page.
We need to give ourselves a chance to experiment. Sometimes things will work, and sometimes not, but we won't know if we don't try..Cheers to trying and to to discovering new great chemistries :)
