Floral House

I have always loved white interiors. They’re peaceful, ethereal and I feel like I’m floating on a cloud. But there is this side of me that would love to live like a gypsy.

I recently found this book called Floral House. The use of color throughout its beautiful pages is spectacular eye candy. It's definitely a great book for those seeking to use color in their décor.

The more I read this book…the more inspired I am to experiment with color.

Here are a few pages from the book and then some photos of things I’ve put together based on the color palettes they used.

The cover of this book is what captured me. I love the combination of pinks, purples and reds together.

This is the sweetest baby room. The mobile is simple and eye catching.

Pretty and Serene

This little birdie inspired my bird cage below.

The use of pink and red against this white background makes the color smoking hot!

Here is the birdcage mobile I made. This would be so much fun hanging in a nursery.

Oh Nancy I am such an erratic soul……
I love white, I love color, I love yellow, I love red, why do I keep buying blue…
Did someone out there say deco, beach, shabby, French…?
I have always envied people who knew their style.
My daughter pointed out something to me, she said that I always compliment friends home and
She said when I do it
is truly honest …not just something said.
I feel it is because I do love a little of everything.

My dilemma is I love it all....white, beige, cream, browns AND color!
What's a girl to do?

I love white, too, but a pop of color never does any harm! That book looks very interesting - I just might have to add it to my own library. ::Jill

I thought your mobile was part of the book too! It is so well done and such a pretty photo, it should be in that book.

I have a surprise for you, you just won my 50th birthday giveaway!

Hi Nancy
I found your blog on my friends links. Her blog is new (recycledrita). I love your blog and your bird cage reminds me of some fairy wings I have made in the past with bridal wire (the stuff used for brides crowns). The images on your blog and your art are inspiring.
