These Before & Afters by Habitat Hanalei Interiors are so inspiring! They are beautiful, classy and every bit stylish in their final design.

Follow the jump for four more inspiring Before & After shots, including PINK occasional chairs that I heart and a bright green guest room to satisfy that itch to be daring. Read more »

Inspired by Susan Sergant’s affection for very bright colors (this is one of her patterns above), here are a few cheery room ideas that make even the dreariest of fall days a little brighter. I am not usually so bold as to paint an entire room lime green — but I must admit I’ll be stealing more than a few of these ideas for the house!

Nine more inspiring rooms full of color to go! As well as accent pieces (such as bedding and throw pillows) that leave a similar — yet not so permanent — effect. Read more »

Decorating for children can be so fun — you can be as extravagant and imaginative as you’d like and the room will be appreciated and loved for years to come. Here are a few inspiring ideas from Elle Decor & BHG for adding a little creativity in the world of children.
Bright walls and fun fabrics are a must. I love how the above lavender room incorporates brilliantly green bed stands and a complimentary fabric canopy/curtain.
A nursery is an ideal place to add a life size stencil and this giraffe is perfect. I love the lampshade too.
