Enchanted Cottage

I just fell in love with this enchanted, rustic country cottage created by textile artist Robin Brown  who calls the retreat “A Victorian fairy tale“, featured in Country Living.

Gorgeous bedroom with layers of beautiful fabrics and lace.

The working refrigerator was a “horrible brown” when Robin nabbed it for $30 at a yard sale. Then how did it turn shell pink? Her solution for old appliances: “Take it to an automotive painter!” But that’s as far as any refinishing went.

A Rainbow of Pastels

Beautiful Brazilian apartment designed by Studio Guilherme Torres using a rainbow color palette of pastels for a fresh and contemporary design:

The base for the decoration was the fusion of polymer cement, minty and blue colors and the use of a whole wall covered in pinus, a wood that has virtually no commercial value in Brazil. Another high point of the project was to expose the structural column right in the entrance door, composing a beautiful set with the dinner table. An important point is: all the main pieces such as tables, sideboards and sofa are designed by the architect.

Modern French Fairytale

This is the stunning living room of Erin Featherston in New York. It can be described as a modern french style with a touch of whimsy. I am totally in love with this place, when can I move in? lol

I love the pastel natural colour scheme in the pastel blue and beige, the amazing French pieces and the high ceilings and tall windows.

Blue and Pink Bedrooms

Inspired by the absolute gorgeousness of this amazing bedroom I decided to centre today’s blog post around the idea of pink and blue bedrooms (mixed in with some white an creams of course).

With stunning white and pink paper lanterns hanging from the ceiling, the china blue bedspread and assorted pink trimmed pillows even the wooden panelling looks romantic and welcoming. This is the source of my inspiration!

Following on from above we reverse the roles with a light pink bedspread and wonderful china blue details in the pillows and all over the room. Furniture in white like in the picture above for that vintage chic feel.

In a slightly darker shade of blue and deeper shade of pink. Playing with florals, pure white walls and painted furniture comes this wonderful bedroom from Fiona of Blue Bell Gray.

From Country Homes & Interiors comes this next bedroom. Country mixed with coastal blues.

Another country style home with light blue walls and a feature wall in soft floral wallpaper. Again white painted furniture seems to work a treat when combined with pastel pink and blue bedding.

And now let’s take this idea up a notch and match the chequered headboard with the wallpaper and just about everything else! Intense room but nice combination of patterns.

A large coastal print gives the room personality, while the addition of a third window allows light in and takes full advantage of the beautiful outside view.
