There’s a colorful world between the pages of a book by Theodore “Dr. Seuss” Geisel filled with tuft-topped Truffula trees, bold stripes and plenty of quirkiness. Held each March 2nd, the birthday of Dr. Seuss is recognized as Read Across America Day. The world he created inspires a bit of whimsy at home using bold patterns, plants, or art that keeps things light. No need to create a fantasy space, just adding a playful accent can be a sophisticated nod to the many places you can go when expressing personal style.
