citrus

by kmcopeland

Saw this picture while perusing a blog favorite, My New Roots, for recipe inspiration and was immediately drawn to the bright colors. This is exactly how I want my summer to be – cheerful citrusy shades that make it impossible to be anything but happy. Happy Friday!

color story [muted spring]

by kmcopeland

I can’t get enough of olive green lately, especially when paired with light blue or dusty rose (or both). It’s a muted color palette that’s perfect for soft spring days…

friday’s fancy [pretty pastels]

by kmcopeland

Gasp! For those who know me, this post may come as a surprise. I don’t think anyone would ever think I’d do a post about such a ladylike subject, but I like to keep you guessing! Despite overall impressions to the contrary, I can appreciate girly things. Sometimes. For very brief periods. Today is one of those days, and I’m embracing it and capturing it for posterity.

inspiration room [lonny]

by kmcopeland

So I’ve posted about this room from the last issue of Lonny before, but I really can’t stop thinking about it. I want to take that couch and breed it so I can have one to call my own. Wouldn’t mind the dining set, either. It’s just a very ballsy design that works so well.  In fact, I like this room so much that I am considering doing something inspired by it in our bedroom.  Here are initial thoughts:

Since this is, in fact, a fantasy, I felt obligated to put really expensive things in here that I would never be able to afford in real life.  Yay for living in pretty fantasy worlds! What do you guys think? Back to the drawing board?

A Good Dose of Color

by kmcopeland

I stumbled across this apartment today and it made me smile. I found a section of Marie Claire Maison called Visites Privées, and though I can’t remember most of the French I studied, I’m pretty sure this means “Private Viewings.” So, I think it’s a private look into Europe’s elite, which I am totally down for (if you recall I kind of like to stalk people with more money than me). This is the home of Anne Geistdoerfer, a Parisian architect, and I just love her use of color. The colors she uses are bold (see lime green and fuchsia), but they are tempered by lots of neutral features so it’s not at all overwhelming. I dig it.

Seriously, who wouldn’t want a bright pink sink? What are your thoughts?

Sunday Funday

by kmcopeland

Bolaget is a realty company in Sweden who (I think) takes some of the best pictures of homes and flats for sale. I love going to their website and just browsing their listings – the styling and photography never disappoints and I always end up getting an idea or two.

Today is my lucky day because I just discovered that they have an “Inspiration” section on their website where they have collected some of their best pictures over the years. Here are some of my faves:

Pretty

I normally don’t like a lot of pink, but that last room just made me smile today. Hope you have your own Sunday Funday!
