    I love pastels, but I agree that I love to see them in combination with a bold, darker color. I love those framed pictures!

    Usually I like a plain base color and then bright accent pieces but this pastel look is pretty nice!

    I'm definitely a fan of pastels.. if they're done right. Perfect example being Pheobe Howard rooms. Gorgeous, but they can get almost boring after you've seen so many.

    Nice selection of well-done rooms. Pastels can definitely go very wrong, very easily, but you've shown that they can also be really beautiful.

    love them as long as you add in some rich browns or bolder, darker colors to deepen the room.

    (ps–i WANT that mint armoire)

    I love spring time colors in my home with a balance act done with touches of black and white. In fact I did a post today on what I like and what I don't like. The 80s
    era was so bad in design and in fashion, that first picture made me twitch!! Good examples on this post and I am dying for those egg prints, Love them!! Happy Tuesday,Kathysue

    It is amazing how the same colors can be redone in such a good way… That first image reminds me of our old beach house when I was in middle and high school. Niceeeee! Miami Vice what?

    I agree – pastels require balance! These spaces nail it.

    You must admit, it's a challenge to show 80s mauve done right… That first pic brings back some bad memories.

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.

Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]


Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

Budget Friendly Bar Carts

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
