{décor inspiration: a kiss of colour}


. . . monday, monday, and utterly inspired by this beautiful entryway -- the enchanting framed wallpaper fragment and antique french chest, the warm wood panelled walls and rich chevron floors . . . and not certain if it is because it is february or the approach of valentine's day, but lately, have been dreaming of painting the walls the palest shade of pink . . .



. . . of course, the next best thing would be glimpses of colour set against pale and perfectly pretty neutrals . . .

Gorgeous. Just adore that entry. The best pale pink in my mind is Pink Ground by Farrow and Ball - a beautiful soft shade with absolutely no hint of bubblegum!

Agree with quitessence above about pink ground, so pretty and powdery, used it in a girls room and it was dreamy.
Personally I like mondays, time to get busy and productive again...do not like Sundays, too stagnant for me!
I llooove that french chest up there..so pretty, the color, design,everything!
Speaking of french, please visit me..am doing my first ever giveway and its a french chair!

Thanks.....happy Monday!

I would love to have lovely, feminine china with gold trim! I don't think my husband will go for it, but as soon as I have more space I will invest in girly china to use for girly events (i.e.tea parties, brunch, etc.)
All of the images are beautiful as always! XO
