It's May Day and I think spring has finally decided to put it's game face on . Every time I step outside, the first thing I notice is the vibrant, spring green of new leaves. For days I've been tracking the progress of new foliage popping up in the park. Then on Monday, I read the Habitually Chic blog, Lighten Up. Ever since all I've been thinking about is the lovely soft color palette. Everything turns romantic when the hue shifts to blush. Even the word is romantic.
Lovely tufted sofa and textured walls
BoConcept desk lamp adds a professional edge to this work space.
Of course a wedding is the ultimate place for spotting romance and blush hues.

Light pink walls provide a nice contrast to the dark floors and modern side tables.

I love this Canopy wallpaper in buff and blush by : Quercus & Co.
I've really been in to mirrored furniture lately.
The rigid shape of this Blush lounge chair by Sofie Brünner keeps this pink from being too sweet.
The Flower Drop Chandelier and Jackson Buffet and by Oly Studio. Now if only I knew who was responsible for the Deco mirrored sconces.
Finally, this pairing of blush draperies and navy accents is the perfect blend of sweet and sophisticate.

Blanchetti Gallery : 7 lamp
For most of my life, I've been more interested in silver tones than gold tones. I love the cool, sleekness of silvery hues. Recently I've noticed a shift in my preferences. I don't know if the gold blog I did back in August jump started this but I do know that I am really digging the warmer side of metal these days. Brass, gold, copper. I'm loving all of it.

St. Patrick's Day has come and gone. The Empire State Building was bright green with the rest of the colors if the Irish flag lighting the antenna. As green happens to be one of my favorite colors, this seemed like an easy excuse to show some emerald images.

I recently had the pleasure of going back to Virginia to visit my family. While there, I visited my aunt who had brightly painted all of the exterior doors on her house. Purple, yellow, orange... they were all beautiful. She told me she noticed lots of colorful doors on her recent visit to the UK. Today I've put my patriotic hat on and shown only red or blue doors in recognition of the presidential debates last night.

Violet is one of my favorite colors. If things are violet, it's a safe bet I'm going to like them. I think this lovely hue is a bit under represented in interiors. Here's some examples of violet with it's sunny complement.
