This week’s Fashion Friday feature is all the rage this season. For my Runway to Room Challenge, blogger and fashion aficionado Couture Carrie brings to us a look I like to call the Modern Mix. Punches of fun color combined with rustic elements are a win-win in your room and on the runway. Get  a clue from today’s match-up on how you can incorporate this look into your home’s decor and wardrobe.

    I love to mix it up with a twist of modernity.
    Adding a bit of rustic, like a boot with something a bit more elegant seems so fresh. Love that room and the outfit too.
