trending now: decorating with pastels

Pastels are super hot for Spring 2014 fashion, and it looks like the lines have blurred as usual,
with home decorating trends also leaning towards the lighter side of color.
I hope these beautiful spaces and home decor ideas inspire you as much as they have me.
I even have an area cleared out in our garage to get painting
as soon as possible, I love springtime!

 The white seating might have to wait a few years since my kiddos love ketchup on everything,
but I say YES to this space, adorbs!!


 Industrial table…check.
White washed brick…check.
Touches of pastel…check.
Wine…what time shall I be there?

 Changing out pillow covers or stitching a few up by hand makes a big impact right away.

The mint green pendant light, and pretty spring decor brightens up
this white, bright space perfectly.

 Pastel kitchen stools, an easy afternoon project.

A carved mirror is always a good find, but to score one this color? Oh happy day!
with a lot of lavender & natural wood.

Beautiful backdrops for wall and photography, I even love the suede shoes.

I never met a Peony I didn’t like, isn’t this shower curtain so pretty?

The owl just makes my heart go pitter-patter.  I love everything in this living room.

 Tiny kitchen? No problem for this creative homeowner, love the pop of green.

My husband supplies us with the real thing, but I am gaga over all of the gorgeous
taxidermy out there.  This lavender and white version is super cute.


 Not ready to paint a wall aqua or pale coral? A pretty arrangement
like this one is a good place to start.

 This pretty space links to a private blog, but I loved the chevron rug, drum shade, and chairs so much.

Neutral walls, curtains and sectional, with pretty accents, rental perfection.

 Sometimes a huge visual impact comes from one small can of paint.
What a pretty, clean looking back splash.

Jen’s kitchen island at Tatertots & Jello & blue accents, swoon.


The crafting chicks shared their gallery wall, I love it paired with these fab yellow lamps from Target.


 Look no further than the recycling bin to find the containers needed for this awesome upcycle.

Can you feel that? It’s the signs of spring, longer days, and pretty things to make calling our names.

I think I just heard a brown chair begging to be given a new coat of fresh paint…
