A Playful Kitchen

While I don't believe the kitchen depicted below is real, I can't help but adore the playful nature of the space and the feeling of truly being one with nature. I love the illusion of bringing the outdoors in and can imagine the space being open to the sky above.

The ivy-covered trellis surrounding the dining area creates a magical setting, and the large tree and swing visible on the right side of the room holds a lighthearted, childlike appeal. Who wouldn't love hopping on the swing while waiting for water to boil?

A Room Reveals A Wedding {A Softer Shade of Blue}

Since last week, "Three Elements" made an appearance following a long leave of absence, I thought this week I would bring back "A Room Reveals A Wedding" from an even longer one.

Our inspiration room for this week features soft shades of butter, peach, aqua, periwinkle, and grey, and these colors would easily translate into a soothing palette for a wedding.

Simple & Clean

I am quite taken with this easy, relaxed bedroom; I love the cot-like beds and the mid-century modern pieces that give the space its simple and clean appearance.

The light and airy feel of this room makes it seem like an ideal space to spend time napping and daydreaming as an escape from the brutal mid-afternoon heat of a hot summer day.
