In the Mood: November 2016

I don’t typically love oxblood, burgundy, or maroon. Maybe it’s because I was a teenager in the nineties when hunter green, burgundy, and navy reigned. They are three perfectly lovely colors on their own, but you may recall that particular combination to be very 90s! Anyhow, I recently spotted these gorgeous Alexandre Birman Bow Sandals in Burgundy Velvet Sandals and much to my surprise, I suddenly developed a crush on this color. It’s perfect for Fall and Winter. While it may be a bold choice to commit to in one’s home– though the examples in this post will show you how to do it beautifully– it is a fun hue to try in one’s wardrobe or in an even more palatable dose, compliments of a chic nail polish or lipstick. While oxblood may not be one of my go-to colors, I am certainly in the mood for it this month!

  1. Thanks for the inspiration. Had been trying to decide if I have buyer’s remorse about the oxblood leather Louis XVI chairs I purchased at auction. These images are helping me realize how to layer other colors. Thanks as always Paloma! xo
