Wild For Color

I just bought these new stamps from usps and LOVE them.  
The colors are so "IN" right now.
Check out the following rooms that showcase this array of 
vibrate colors!

                                   Martha Stewart
Sent this picture from martha to my sister as an inspirational photo to jump start her re-decorating.  Love the turquoise walls and vibrate patterns.

                                                                                                             House Beautiful

This bedroom from house beautiful has all the colors.  The printed headboards and curtains mix nicely with the pop of turquoise in the lamp and bed skirt.
                                                                                          House & Home

                                                                                   House & Home
