While the paint colours are all light pastel yellows, greens, and blues, there are some slightly darker shades of these same colours in throw pillows, carpets, patterned materials, and accessories.
Here's a peak into my not so organized closet
So let's see how the dressing and the decorating line-up. I divided up my analysis into colour groups, as follows:
Neutrals - Yep there are lots of neutrals (white, cream, beige, black, and brown) in both my closet and my home. However, I would never wear an outfit or decorate a room entirely with neutrals. I often admire rooms or outfits that are all black and beige, and think they look sophisticated and elegant, but in reality it's just not me. Wait a minute, what am I saying, that I'm not sophisticated and elegant?
Greens and yellows - I like most greens and some yellows and have a few items in those colours around the house and in my wardrobe. I really only like yellows that stay away from the mustardy-pukey shades. These days I usually wear apple greens and have soft gray greens around the house. However, unlike the pinks and purples, I actually could envision using other shades of green in decorating in the future, such as teal, celery green, apple green, and pistachio (shown below).
Those same words definitely apply to how I decorate!

How about you? Do the colours in your wardrobe match with the colours around your house? Is the description in words a better match than the colours?
