it’s been a while since i’ve contributed to an actual print magazine (as in real ink on paper), so i’m quite excited about this. the new issue of interior designer extraordinaire leanne ford’s feel free magazine is out, and in it, i’ve contributed a story about how to get a monochromatic look. but perhaps not what you’re thinking — it’s not white on white, neutrals, or even black, but color, my friends! it may seem counterintuitive, but yes — you can also achieve a monochromatic look using color and quite bold ones at that. in this issue of feel free, i focused on the many shades of red, which was inspired by those striped italian curtains and awnings i love so much. so, i thought i’d give you a sneak peek at the issue, as well as share a few of the contributors to this issue to help you get the look.

i couldn’t be more proud to have been asked to write a feature for feel free, and to now share it with you. and to all the lovely photographers and small businesses who contributed their beautiful and inspiring images to my article; thank you so very much! you can find these contributors listed just below — from small business boutiques to some very talented photographers. i could not have put this article together without them. in the meantime, here’s a sneak peek at a few pages from feel free, as well as some additional color inspiration for getting this look. thanks for checking it out! you can find and order a copy of feel free here.
