I can’t believe it’s already the end of April! This month as flown by so quickly.
April inspires me with bright colors, bold patterns and PASTELS! What’s the best way to incorporate a bit of pastel? In beautiful accessories (like muted lampshades, funky upholstered headboards, throw pillows and even wallpaper) that add a hint of soft, sunny color to lighten up an entire room.
Oh I adore the above room from BHG, it very much reminds me of dyed Easter eggs and spring. Sigh.
My mind has been in many bright places recently and April seams the fitting month to honor the spring mentality! I love the look of gentle pastels contrasted with bold colors like the living room at the top of this post by Tobi Fairley and these bedrooms from DecorPad:
The orange hints peeking through in this House to Home room are subtle but lovely against the shades of soft blue in the wallpaper.
Two pastel rooms that really take on the meaning of bright and beautiful:

For as long as I can remember I have always associated the month of March with shades of purple… odd, no? If you asked me to describe March I would use ‘eggplant’ and ‘plum’ in my summary. I think it was a memory association game I must have used as a child to help me remember the months of the year and days of the week (for example, in my mind Monday is red and Wednesday is yellow – and I have no idea why).
Anyhow, March is upon us and the first buds of spring are beginning to peek through all around. It’s fresh and enlivening! Just like the color purple.
And guess what? Her entire house exudes shades of lavender, aubergine and violet in the classiest and cleanest of ways.
Need a bit more inspiration in the lilac realm? Here are a few more rooms to bring out the spring in your home (the last being one of my favorites). Read more »

I must admit that I love this time of the year for so many reasons… gold twinkle lights, hot cocoa, Christmas music, glittens (I LOVE my glittens)…
To bring on the cheer all year long here are some of my favorite rooms inspired by the season (velvet red, deep green, glittery gold and snowy white make me feel warm and fuzzy 356 days a year).
Whatever colors inspire you this holiday, may they be cheery and bright year long!
