lately i have been focusing more thought over the living room
trying to nail down a certain color palette
i was thinking blue, turquoise, and white
faded and distressed furniture
and a chandelier with crystals (sparkly yea!)
but once i start surfing the net for more idea inspiration i get pulled back into
the "mint green splendor"
that i do love so much
maybe blue and green together?
hilarious since they are the opposites of my very first favorite colors
pink and red
pretty macaroons in a pretty box
when i go to paris i will go to laduree first
and buy lots of macaroons
aren't their boxes perfect?
granny-ish but i love grandma style in a more updated way
grandma's house = comfort
quite a large living room
elegance and comfort
lush and beautiful
just so inviting!
one of my favorite inspiration pictures
blue pillow, green stripes, and paisely
i could dream the day away
hungry for mint green all over again
isn't this such a pretty desk?
so intricate and beautiful
lovely faded prints
nice and bright
love this living room
relaxing and calm
a nice balance to my over-anxious personality
so plush and clean looking
love the rumpled faded rose pillows
yes shabby chic is a style that is so popular and not unique
but you know what?
i absolutely adore it
Rachel Ashwell (creator of Shabby Chic) describes it as
"the marriage of my English heritage with the fresh eclectic qualities of my California lifestyle"
when i read that i was pretty much sold
i love pretty, vintage, girly things
but i also love practicality and ease
memories of my earlier life as a California girl
this style suits me and i think its here to stay
