April 13, 2012Color My Beautiful MCM Home
Remember this book? Color guru and entrepreneur Carole Jackson brought us the wonderful world of color according to our personal coloring and classified us as seasons: Winter, Summer, Spring and Autumn.
Imagine my surprise and joy in finding an article in the April 1950 issue of Better Homes and Gardens about decorating your home according to your hair color!
For the redhead………..
Did you know that your gray hair makes you regal?
Such a retro term, “brownette.”
Blonde hair, blonde furniture.
Now for the brunettes, which also includes those with black hair.
This was a fun article and I hope you all enjoyed it.
By the way, have any of you decorated your home using colors that compliment your hair color? I confess that I prefer gray and pastel colors, which go with my ash blonde-going-gray hair.
