Her Favourite C
Nude always has a special place in my heart and creativity. As one of my favorite colors ever, it gives me inspiration for every season of the Year. I am obsessed with this color. Perfect for winter and spring. It is delicate, feminine, soft, classic & elegant. I see this color being used in cosmetics, nails, home decor, handbags, shoes. Nude can come in many different shades and hues. It’s browns, beiges, cream shades and everything in between.An all nude-brown-beige look is the definition of understated elegance, or it can be a very cute boho chic style, depending of course on how you wear it. Beige shades look clean, fresh, refined and quite luxurious. The mix of all nude colors holds a certain femininity to it and a classy minimalism with tones of glamour or bohemian vibes, while being kind of understated. To me, these colors have a certain grown-up quality to them, especially when worn with bold lips, stiletto heels, and expensive looking accessories.
Her Favourite F
My favorite fabric is linen, it has its own distinct style that differs from other materials. Because it is so porous, it can be easily dyed in rich colors. Linen washing techniques like stone washing, then give it a cozy, lived-in feel and hue. Lastly, the natural wrinkles of linen, which signifies its quality, is unmatched in textile world.
