Many people have been struggling with exhaustion from the current situations around the world — the craziness, uncertainty, as well as racial and ethnic diversity giving rise to social and political conflict. Anytime the world around us feels like it has gone crazy, we turn to our family, friends, and homes to help us find happiness.
Comfortable surroundings in happy colors make us smile. Golden yellow, gender-neutral pink, sky blue, and earthy light terracotta are colors that help to reconnect us first via social media, then fashion and home. These are joyful, nurturing colors that remind us that everything and everyone is going to be okay.
