This trend followed me everywhere this summer ... St. Remy, London, Aspen, Paris etc!!!
And even East Hampton, too!!!!

Of course, I absolutely adore color ...... it's one of my most favorite "accessorations" .......

But, I prefer "accessorating" a room with a touch of orange or green, etc ....
Not necessarily "accessorating" your head!!!!

Remember its called "accessorating," not shocking!!!!
YIKES!!!

A Color Palette spans continents & Lifstyles!!!!!

My color consistency even shocks me!!!!!! These two pictures couldn't be further apart in subject or location; the corner is in my friend Mary Sculley's East Hampton house and the picture of the side-by-side stack of boats is in the Ganges River in the holy Indian city of Veranasi. I took them both and reacted to the same color palette in both!!!! I am crazy about these green-blue colors, mixed with dirty whites and brown-greys ...... and a constant touch of red-orange!!!!! Also note the touch of green in both pictures that accents the palette!!

 

I would imagine the next incarnation of my house will become the third picture in this grouping!!!!!!!!
