Good morning, friends! How was your weekend? We celebrated Easter here in a low-key way, a small egg hunt happened in the living room, out to brunch, then family time in the garden – I planted 200 peas! Oh my. I may have gotten just a bit carried away.
This morning I am feeling inspired by the exuberant color and layers of pattern shown in the homes in the spring issue of Heart Home, so I thought I would share a few favorites here. I often notice in UK design mags and even bloggers homes that people seem to have more fun with design than here in the states. There seems to be more color and pattern, and less concern about matching. I think it’s fantastic.
Some things I am loving: pink pompom trim, Cath Kidston floral prints, quirky art, fresh flowers. I admit granny crochet is not quite my style, though I love looking at it other homes. Is this your cup of tea at all? Perhaps you would like something more like this:
Nautical patterns and art feels fresh when done in whimsical, midcentury inspired prints. I think this would be just perfect for decorating a seaside cottage – or pretending your home is a seaside cottage, anyway! Ha.
You can read the full issue and learn more about these creative spaces in the spring issue of Heart Home magazine, but for now I would love to hear your thoughts on bringing a bit more fun and color into the home. To be honest, I am growing quite bored with all of the white in my home, and adding color/pattern is something of a decorating goal of mine this year. :)
