Color Friday is: Peppermint!

Red and white stripes almost always make me think of peppermints!  Candy canes, round mints, and bold swirls.   Red and white is a common pairing that can be strikingly modern or unquestioningly feminine.  It can be nostalgic, current, or juvenile, and it’s all about how you incorporate it.
