Artemis & Apollo

I was pleasantly surprised when I saw that on the spring 2012 runways pastels were the hot items for the season. I simply just love this! By mixing and matching pastels with neutrals like brown, black, tan and cream you can start wearing this trend now. Interior design usually tends to mimic clothing design so I have put together some interiors done in pastels to get your imagination flowing. I know I have been truly inspired and I will be incorporating this into my home ASAP!

And for those of you looking for clothing inspiration I have added a few finds that I simply love! I couldn’t choose between the two shoes, so I added them both šŸ™‚ Oh and I wish my bedroom looked like the image below and had that closet too – someday…!

BLACK & WHITE DECOR INSPIRATION

Now I have always been an avid fan of black & white decor! If I did not live in an apartment in which you have to repaint the walls back to the original color when you decide to move, my beautiful hallway would be painted black with a beautiful vintage bench with a yellow or orange damask print pillows, few pieces of art, an over-sized mirror & a large tropical plant. Ahhhhh…….a girl can dream but I guess that will have to wait until we make our move to our dream home!

For all the love I have for black and white decor, I’ve saved quite a bit of inspirational pieces…in Google Reader, OneNote and flagged every home decor magazine and book I own (and believe me I have tons and tons of magazines and books To truly appreciate the beauty I see in this decor style….take a look at some of my inspirational pieces. Hope you love them as much as I do.

ROMANTIC MINI VICTORIAN COTTAGE

Through my many travels…on the web that is šŸ™‚ I came upon this absolutely GORGEOUS Mini Victorian Cottage. This little “cottage” is only 9’x10′, was previously a hunting cabin, and is hidding inside a spectacular getaway retreat!

This little jewel has a sitting room, dining area and a lovely bedroom loft. There is no kitchen or bathroom, but who needs that when you have all that beauty to look at. The owner used vintage columns, flooring, and windows to complete the look and did all the carpentry herself. Most of the stunning pieces in her cottage (like the chandelier and mirror) were flea market and garage sale finds. And to top it all off the only way to gain access to the cottage is across rocks strategically placed across a running stream.
Now after seeing this I don’t want to hear anyone say that their home is too small to pull off an exceptional look. If this can be achieved in an area as small as 9’x10′, anything can be accomplished if you put your time, energy and passion into it. If I am ever lucky enough to have a little girl in my future I would love to be able to create her a little cottage like the one seen here. I know when I was a child I would have given my arm and leg for a play house like that! Heck, what am I talking about, I would STILL give my arm and leg for a little getaway like that šŸ™‚ Simply Stunning!
