I adore purple sofas. This sofa looks sweet with the little blue table and the blue and pink painting. For a smoldering touch a gray rug has been added. The rug remains fresh looking because of the pale blue table. An ingenious touch adding to the freshness is the pop of the yellow pillow. Yellow is another big color this Spring. All in all a fabulous use of color. (Please contact me if you know the source of this image.)
I believe this is actually an ad for wall paper, but it is the Holmegaard Carnaby vase that is making me swoon. I always have my eye out for one of these at flea markets and second hand stores, but I've never found one. I adore pale blue glass vases. (See post regarding another favorite, Morgantown Bristol, here.)
Speaking of edge, just look at this incredibly gorgeous room. I dropped my jaw when I saw it. Let's look closer. Funky lighting, check. Pillows, check. Large painting, check. Blue glass, check. This is a very clever use of color. Blue for freshness and black adding romance. Image via The Style Files. This room sent me straight to my closet where I pulled out the following pillows.

As you know, any color I decide to use in my home is going to be juxtaposed with large doses of pink. Fortunately, pink goes with any color. I had blue and pink on my mind when I did the above painting. It may not be Spring just yet, but it's not too early to start Spring cleaning and Spring decorating! xxoo
