It's been a long, monochromatic, monotonous winter:  grey and white and brown and black. In the darker months, nature's simple palette is austere, cool - and depressing. And I'm through! Time for blinding color, boggling patterns, drama, joie de vivre, Cali, Mexi, Medi, and anything bright! Substance and style - nothing urbane. Shrinking violets aren't our thing; peonies, roses, and sunflowers are. Statements are in. And of course, so is Kelly Wearstler. Show us how, Hollywood style!

Chrysanthemums:  bold color, edgy shape, and Asian influence.

A Parrot Tulip... delicate peaches and corals mingle with soft whites.

Bluebells, and cockleshells, and objets d'art all in a row!

Marigolds! Sunshine splashes in through the windows, and gilt glimmers from every surface.

Grass Green - fresh, cool, welcoming. Spring!

I'm with you, Skyla!

Love the beautiful, yellow-dressed space - it's so cheerful...umm, when can I move in?

Found you in the comments at Paris Hotel ... it was your name that grabbed me ! You have quite an eye for lovely things ! All of these images are wonderful in an unexpected kind of way.

I adore the foyer in the first image. Perfection! Happy spring indeed!

Sanity, Dahhhhling! So nice to hear from you today! I have been writing my paws off on real journalism jobs, and haven't had the pleasure of tending to my blogs lately. I haven't checked in with you in so long, I didn't know you changed the look of your page. I loved it! Since giving Hubbs the Heisman a few months ago, I have been daydreaming of how to redecorate. The melon tones you featured today make me feel giddy. Off to Sherwin Williams I go...and would you believe I haven't seen the Alice movie yet!?! I went on the first day and it was sold out. Hope to see it soon! Love, Kitty

Okay, these sites down right diva worthy! I love the contrast of the black statue in the first picture and the cheery pinkish-orange pattern on the staircase walls. THe whole look is totally unexpected!

Marija said...

ADORE these images. Such a pretty post! I was inspired by those KWID stairs for my own home - now I wish I had the glossy peach door, too! You have a terrific eye! Marija

Count me in! I am so tired of beige and nuetrals....people forget that there are a million beautiful hues that never get any playtime! Thanks for the great comment, Skyla. Have a super Wednesday!

I'll take the peach and black room including the spiral staircase please.

Averill said...

YAY! I'm all for it, Skyla. Even gray (which last year seemed so cool to me) feels "beige". I'm sick of it -- bring on the color!

Paris Hotel Boutique said...
