Honey and Cream

love this color combo

It started with a color-blocked shirt.  The cream and yellow colors were unexpected, different, and I was afraid it would wash me out...but I couldn't resist the siren song of this muted, yet fun color combination!

But I was right - as a woman with olive-skin, yellow just makes me look like I have jaundice, not quite the image I'm going for.  Still, I'm determined to get this combo into my home this summer.

In fact, I think gold and cream can read as a new neutral palette - perfect for someone who wants more color in their life, but doesn't want to give up on beige.
