Color Combos Elsie Larson       Let's talk color! 

I find that my go-to colors cycle every 1-2 years. I will passionately love a color (or combo of colors), and then get tired of it for a while. It's a cycle. 

Last October when we watched Rosemary's Baby, it launched me into an INSANE inspiration reboot, and at the moment I am obsessing over 1970s colors... even sometimes 1980s... you guys—who AM I? 

I love the changes, though. It's fun to slowly evolve, reinvent and eventually... come around the same circle again! 

What about you, Sis?

And honestly, I tend to incorporate black and white into my home decor choices pretty often too. I think I am drawn to contrast, and also I tend to pick "safer colors" when I'm shopping. Of course that's not to say I don't love color, I do! I just think I use it more often as an accent in my clothing. 

Also, I will forever love glitter. I don't care if that makes me basic. GLITTER FOR LIFE!
