Last week we were thrilled to make an appear­ance at Tampa Bay Metro’s Summer with Style Fashion Show at Neiman Marcus, sup­porting the Children’s Dream Fund.  All of us at CGH love any excuse to get dressed up and enjoy a night of fashion, friend­ship, and fun, all while sup­porting such a worth­while cause.

Pantone’s 2012 Spring Color List.

A few months ago, we had a blog post intro­ducing the top colors in fashion and home design for 2012.  We were so happy to see many of these won­derful colors make an appear­ance!  It truly is amazing to see how fashion and design take cues from each other and are so inter­change­ably com­bined.  The 2012 top color of the year, Tan­gerine Tango, took center stage and showed up in many of our favorite out­fits throughout the evening.

We will leave you with a few of our favorite summer pair­ings from the fashion show, along­side a few of our favorite Clayton Gray Home pieces that we thought worked well with these fash­ions!  Enjoy!  To find all of these fash­ions, both home and clothing, please visit www​.clay​tongray​home​.com and www​.neiman​marcus​.com for more looks!
