BURST OF COLORS

Happy first day of 2014!!!

One of my readers noticed that I don’t feature enough bedroom designs on the blog which, in fact, is true. For some reason, I am always drawn to living rooms and especially dining rooms perhaps because these are the most used areas in my apartment. But that’s kind of selfish of me, right? And so for this year, I promise to post more inspiration photos not just for the bedroom but also for the other spaces at home.

I’m going to start with these colorful bedrooms for older kids and teenagers. They’re vibrant, fun and exciting – exactly how we want this year to be :)

HAPPY YELLOW

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

– Excerpt from I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud by William Wordsworth

HOLIDAYS IN MONOCHROME

It’s only a month away before summer officially starts. I bet that at this point, many of you are already making vacation plans. I bet, too, that 50 percent of those plans comprises holiday outfits. Summer is obviously the time to wear colors, whether in soft neutral palettes or in crazy, unexpected combinations. Now here’s something fun. How about ditching that color wheel on your desk and going monochromatic? Not in black, white or nude. But in green, purple or yellow. Game?

PASTEL PERFECT BEDROOM

When I saw this inspiration photo, my first thought was: I’m packing my bags now and moving in there. (Then I’ll take that modern art painting down and replace it with something cute.) This room is just gorgeous, and not in the fancy way. It’s gorgeous because it sends good vibes, as if nothing in the world could bother you while in there. Do you like pastel shades in your bedroom, too?
