Pastel Perfection


Jolly good Thursday, to you! (Do I sound British?) It's raining, it's pouring and frankly, it makes me want to go back to bed. Spring rain brings beautiful flowers though, so hopefully all this water will result in some gorgeous gardens.
Did you all get a chance to sign up for the Devon Baer Designs giveaway yet? I'm super-jealous of whichever lucky girl wins the necklace, haha. I know it will be such a lovely spring accessory on whoever's neck it happens to land : )

So since Easter is almost upon us AND it is now officially spring, we can dive head first into pastels! And let me tell ya'll, there is nothing more that my sweet, southern heart loves more than a gorgeous palette of perfect pastels...


Our friends at Elle always keep us up-to-date on the latest trends, which this month is, (not surprisingly), the use of lighter, brighter colors in decorating and fashion.
Oh how I'm pining for pale pink and lusting after lavender....



...and speaking of pink, what do you think of this? It's called the Traditional Moroccan leather pouf from Imports of Marrakesh. Are you in love or are you in love?



Or how about this set of porcelain dinnerware by Anna Weatherly?
I dont know about you, but I'd love to snooze in this baby blue bed from House Beautiful.





Next, let's look at this beautiful pastel blue and pink room, which just so happened to win Met Home of the Year for Metropolitan Home Magazine. Gorgeous, darling.



Of course, if you're going to decorate with pastels, you might as well wear pastels. I'll take one of each of the following, (Gold and semi-precious stone bangle by Lppolita and Saffiano leather bag by Prada):

These lacquered wooden boxes by Pacific Connections would certainly be a stylish place to store your jewelry, passport or other valuables.
Speaking of blue, why not throw in this Anderson linen upholstered wing chair by William-Sonoma? Did you notice the nailhead trim? Two trends in one. Are visions of pastels dancing in your head this time of year, too?




Be blessed, lovelies-
