Maroon Madness!

Dec 20, 2012 | Home Style


(picture these in an emerald vase!)

Maroon is my absolute color obsession of the year ahead.  In feng shui, emerald is a wood color, and lots of wood in feng shui creates fire. In essence, a deep maroon is the perfect splash of balance to this year ahead dominated by Pantone’s gemstone emerald green.  I thought I’d do a little tear sheet of maroon madness to get you as excited as I am for 2013 in full color!

When I heard that emerald was the Pantone color of 2013, I could not help but think of maroon.  Perhaps its the classical art historian in me, or maybe the die-hard lover of the color wheel that I am that has taken me toward a sudden lust for maroon…? Maybe this season of rooting for Terry McDermott on The Voice and my mind has been hypnotized by Maroon 5 and Adam Levine?   No matter…I’m hooked, so lets make it gorgeous!

Lets make it gorgeous like a Rothko.  He loved maroon.  Lots of spiritual richness in its fusion of violet and crimson.


What about a set of handmade maroon pillows from Bali on Etsy?


Marchesa toasts to maroon on its Spring 2013 runway in full splendor.


Could your front door be painted a light maroon in lieu of the classic “feng shui” red to set a more sparkling, unique voice for yourself in your neighborhood?


Vanadinite crystals.  Nature astonishes me!


Vintage suzani’s on Etsy are maroon madness.

Verdict: Add a splash or two of maroon to increase the physical, emotional and even soulful fire in your life!
