My fondness of colors came from my mom while growing up. She always wore bright clothes from lime green to sunny yellow to tangerine orange including hot pink lipstick. My mom’s vibrant clothes were reflected in her cheerful personality full of joy, kindness, and positivity. This Mother’s day is the perfect opportunity to celebrate how my amazing mom inspired me to be creative through her colorful yet elegant fashion style. When I oil paint or come up with a design concept for clients, I naturally navigate towards soft and/or vivid colors either as the base color or for accent pieces. Walking into a room with white walls and white furniture has a completely different feeling and emotion than walking into a room with warm yellow or orange walls and cozy wood furniture. To me, a splash of color makes the environment full of life and joy compared to a white or neutral space which appears cold yet is associated with cleanliness. For example, take color guru Jamie Drake. His interior designs are just visually stunning and evokes different emotions in people. He is the master of using color in a space and is known for his urbane, stylish and dazzling aesthetics. Regardless of people’s preferences, I want to honor my mom for inspiring me to embrace all the wonderful colors in the world and incorporating them in my work and fashion sense. Here are some designs full of bright colors to inspire you this Mother’s Day!
