~ fun with flirty colours ~

my inspiration today
this amazing
turquoise fabric
so bold and luxurious
all i want to do is wrap myself from
head to toe in it
{now this is one lucky chaise settee}

it only gets better
strong coral and turquoise
so flirty
found these amazing items at smallkaramell

last week a friend and i ventured into Stella Bleu
{a store jammed packed full of inspiration}


and found this
elegant chair infused with a whimsical touch




and this " little pretty"
from betsy johnson



which led me to this fairy tale dressing room
where i drew some inspiration
for my own bathroom/bedroom
makeover
which is now in full swing
{bathroom white elegance...bedroom palest of blue with a pop of bright color}
~i did buy one of my daughters an amazing treat at Stella Bleu~
will show you soon

Thank you for stopping by and I think you should join your daughter in getting inked! I love mine. In fact, when my daughter turned 18 this past march, she and and my other daughter and myself all went to get tattoo's together. It was a family day. A lot of fun.

I can't wait to see your redo all done. That changing space was so lovely. I think even if it doesnt fit that definitely would soften the blow.
