Happy Happy Rooms.


I bought the new Style at Home magazine the weekend and I poured over every page. It was their decorating issue and I loved all the beautiful artwork, spring vignettes, and coffee table and mantel styling ideas. I'm feeling more inspired... despite the terrible weather we've been having. I hate complaining about the weather but seriously Mother Nature? It's been raining forever and the forecast calls for rain this week until Saturday. I kid you not. I wish I were more like these people.

Lately, I've been thinking about how my own tastes have evolved. I've always loved white spaces but more and more I'm so in love with white paired with a healthy pop of pattern and color! It screams spring and more importantly - fun!
Here are some of my favorite colorful spaces.

Don't they just make you happy? I've been feeling to need to inject some color and fun into my own place so here is my own feeble attempt to bring this look into my own home. The hallway in the entrance needed a little something so I framed a piece of pretty fabric. It actually sort of looks like a watercolor. Sort of:)


Hard to take a good photo in the little space!

Have a great week everyone!

  1. Gorgeous rooms. That image with the pink flowers and gold sculpture on the wall has been a huge inspiration for my sisters apartment. I'm actually working on something based on that wall art. Let's see how it comes out.

  8. I will trade you some sunshine for rain. We haven't had any precipitation in NM since January! You don't realize how much you miss a rainy day every once in awhile until you don't have them.

    Beautiful inspiration today Jane, I love the 3rd image. The coffee table is amazing!
