When I was in college my major was in Fine Art and I had an emphasis in design and illustration. My favorite medium was watercolor and I’m so excited to see watercolor make a huge resurgence back into popularity this year in fashion, fabrics, and home decor. You can easily paint your home in liquid pools of translucent and saturated color. If you love the popular ombre movement or prefer a more classical painterly look, you will love these water color inspired accessories!
