All That Glitters…

I’m trying to make friends with gold. Growing up, I chose silver as my metal of preference till about a year ago. That’s when I started giving in to the impending trend of gold. From what I’ve seen, gold can work into all sorts of settings. But I think the key is when and where you use it. Think of it as accessorizing an outfit — how one or two additions can make your look classic, ladylike or eclectic.

 

Keep it simple with classic additions to brighten any space.

Growing up Julia loved color so much she gave her crayons different genders and specific positions in the box based on who they got along with. Fast forward to adulthood, and Julia had the opportunity to work for a paint company where she honed her eye for color, and sometimes even got to name colors things like Dandelion Scream and Wild Child. Today Julia works at Nod as a Graphic Designer, and channels her love of color into her constantly changing hair & nail colors, as well as colorful designs for Nod's website.
