A few years ago while working at Kate's Paperie, I became obsessed with a set of Kate Spade stationery that featured a retro variation of postal stripes in navy, red and pink. Kate Spade recycled the same pattern last year with some variation in tone and color on a candy bar clutch and I've been utterly smitten ever since.
Enough about stationery and purses though- what I really care about is decorating. How would this combination work in a room? Navy is such a traditional and conservative color but a bright pink could make it really fun and adding in red accents would balance out the youthful aspects of hot pink. I can easily see it working in a bedroom or living room with all the textile and upholstery possibilities. Here are a few examples via Pinterest:
I like a good challenge so I started thinking about how these colors would look in a kitchen. Dark counters and a textured rug anchor a lighter table and counter top which leaves room for plenty of punchy accessories. Pretty cute, right?

Things I like: flowers, stripes, sequins, glitter, bunnies, those weird pom-poms on all my grandmother's curtains, expensive candles, inexpensive candies, shelter magazines, TV, wallpaper, costumes, old-school socialites, proper etiquette, grapefruit, stationery, champagne, art museums, subway tile, lots of pillows and anything metallic.
Also I like interior design. A LOT. Since I tend to bore most of my friends with my opinions on everything from wallpaper to wall art, I'm posting them all here! Questions? Comments? Presents?
