I'm not sure why but I've been very drawn to black woodwork for a while. And it pops beautifully against this yellow striped wall here.
Hot pink and orange look great together.
A huge rug in a large scale pattern. I'm plotting something along these lines for our living room. DIY style, of course :) It's taking it's sweet time, though, as always. Those large green leaves in a vase would be something I'd want as well.
This curtain idea looks cool and shouldn't be too hard to DIY, you just need a lot of fabric :) Fabric just makes everything look so luxurious.
Dark walls and funky black and white chairs. I like the look of dark rooms in magazines but I generally don't like the looming feel of a dark room in person. So you need a lot of lamps to make it work, I guess :) I'm trying it out in our dining room now, it's half-way painted and will be a pretty deep brown when done. I think I need to add more lighting in there...
This umbrella light makes me smile. I love it but I'm glad someone else did it first. I would probably have rejected the idea thinking it was just one of my crazy ideas. But even reputable designers have these ideas and it obviously works. I'm sure there's a way to incorporate this idea somewhere.
These colors together are just gorgeous!
As are these.
Beautiful Indian bride. Color and sparkle.
Curled up elephant's trunk. And I'm sorry but I don't know where I got this last pic from.
These pics make me dream. Hope you enjoyed them too!
