A Redesigned Valentine

I was out shopping for little valentine treats to send to my daughters who are away at college and everywhere I turned were bright red hearts! Around this time of year, red dominates the seasonal aisle of most retailers.  Maybe it was my mood, but I was looking for a softer, quieter and calming gift, but given my lack of time, I picked up a few bright red treats, rushed them to the post office and checked it off my to-do list!  But next year, maybe I'll redesign the holiday and make time to craft some homemade treats including some pink & gray hearts.  I find the subtle shades of pink and gray quite soothing. The color combination works well with interiors too. Take a look at the photos below, all of which I think are spectacular in a soothing, calming way!!!

Happy Home

I just stumbled upon this great space and had to share! The soft shades of aqua mix nicely with the light gray walls that run throughout this bungalow featured recently in At Home Arkansas.  Home owner, Donna Barnett along with her friend Kevin Walsh of Bear-Hill Interiors set out to create a space that was light, airy and bright.  I think they accomplished more that that! This home is fresh, sophisticated and fun! I love the soothing color palette, the all white kitchen and the open floor plan.  The fresh mix of colors in the bedroom are fantastic as well!!  For additional photos and to read more, click on the link, resources are listed as well.
