{inspiration: pinkish lavender, still}

Clearly am not the only one who has fallen for such a lovely whisper of colour, as pinkish tones are everywhere lately. . . and if it were not for living with a charming Brit who prefers more neutral tones and perhaps grays, would happily surround myself in this calming and beautiful hue . . .

{p.s. another lovely rosebud pillow}

It really is such a beautiful color combination. Maybe you can get away with doing a bathroom in those colors? That's what I'm doing (at the very least!) And I think that bed has to be my most favorite of all.

Hope you're having a nice weekend, love:)

I myself have also been obsessed with soft girly shades lately (although this isn't very unusual for me.) Your selections are gorgeous!

am also loving this color. Old Navy has adorable little suede moccasins on sale right now in this very color (with a cute little faux gold buckle). They night now last longer than a year, but very sweet right now!
