Turquoise Garden Cottage




This colorful hideaway featured in Le journal de la maison is the perfect escape for an afternoon nap! The cute little garden cottage is getting me pumped for the weekend (and the Spring). I'm super excited for tomorrow...we're going to another Independent Wedding Fair in Minneapolis. They're small and intimate, and oh-so-fun. We learned SO much at the last one, I totally recommend checking it out if you're engaged or know someone who is!

Stay safe and warm this weekend everyone!!

Vivi's Aqua and Coral Nursery







Yes. YES. This is how you do a nursery people! I stopped dead in my tracks when I spotted this room on Two Tall Blondes. Lucky little Vivi is the daughter of Joni, the talent behind Chocolate Butterbean. Her custom signs and stationary are amazing, so really it's so surprise to me that she churned out such a cool space (and a cool new nursery inspiration blog...). If you're like me, you neeeeed to know what colors we have here. Valspar Aqua Glow on the walls, and the ceiling is a lighter shade of the same color, Valspar Grand Hotel Mackinac Blue. Those colors and the b&w chevron rug really tie the eclectic space together in such a sophisticated way. See and learn more right here!

Purple Perfection







I'm almost certain that this picture perfect apartment featured on Delikatissen, most likely in some fab European city, could convince any American to down-size to 430 square feet. (Unless you live in NY, you guys already rock your small spaces!) Despite its limited size, the comfy and cozy home has such a great flow about it. Not to mention a striking color palette that I don't see nearly enough! How fun is that fabric and wallpaper?! You definitely want to see more of this home...head right this way!

Color Me Happy









Can you guess where this home is?! Just a few minutes walk from the sea in Malmö, Sweden, of course! This Hus & Hem space showcasing a bright white backdrop splashed with a rainbow of color is all sorts of fun. I'm digging the whimsical details like the life-sized animals by artist William Sweetlove, the beautiful glass art, and all the bold fabrics. But most of all I am absolutely in love with all of those rugs!!! See more of this funky, happy home over here!

Hamilton Design Associates






When I saw a tasty post filled with bold pattern and vibrant color on Gorgeous Shiny Things, I wasn't at all surprised to learn they were designed by Ellen Hamilton of Hamilton Design Associates. (She was, after all, the mastermind behind this marvelous bedroom.) Her portfolio is full of bold, colorful design, but also these dreamy seaside escapes too. That kitchen!!! Oh my word. Excuse me while I stare off into these images....it's snowing here....again. Ugh!!!
