Lovely Spaces: Pops of Turquoise, Aqua, & Orange [Interior Design]

Feeling the need for light and airy today. Loving these relaxed spaces and the lovely pops of color–especially the combination of the turquoise and orange. Calming and revitalizing all at once!

Creative Flats: Old Montreal Loft [Interior Design]

Discovered these amazing spaces by design duo Creative Flats via Pinterest via DesignTripper. Nathalie Bouchard and Annie Horth rent out high-end spaces in Montreal furnished and decorated with their own signature sense of style and elegance. I love how the aqua wall gives this dining room an understated pop of color while still keeping everything clean and sophisticated.

All Things Decal

Living in earthquake-prone Northern California poses certain challenges to over-the-bed decor. Anything framed with glass is definitely out. Shelving with books? Totally out. On my quest to transform the vast expanse of naked wall over our bed I’ve become kind of obsessed with the idea of decals. Wall decals, iPhone decals, Macbook decals, I’m tempted to plaster them on everything. There are some really smart and quirky designs out there! I particularly adore this whimsical owl & moon design by Lim Heng Swee for Threadless, reinterpreted by Blik.

This next one by Jean-Sébastien Deheeger completely cracks me up. I could see this in a nursery with a serious sense of humor:

This Etsy store, Home Decal, has some really delicate and lovely designs:

Love this riff on Magritte’s The Son of Man by The Apple Tailor for the MacBook:

Or, how about turning your iPhone into a Polaroid or Leica old-school style camera?? I know this one has been blogged to death but I’m still a devoted fan:

Honestly, I could keep going all night…  😉

Yellow Infusion

After a long and lovely walk around Lake Merritt this afternoon I swear I can feel spring in the air! Yellow has always seemed so vibrant and full of life, which in turn reminds me of new growth and the creativity of spring. All things that I’m eager to tap into…

Whimsical, Colorful, Fun.
