Last week I was walking in the morning and saw this beautiful rainbow in between downpours. I love how the rainbow stands out against the dark, foreboding skies! It was the perfect image that gave me a positive boost throughout the day. This picture should be a reminder that, even in the darkest of times, there’s a rainbow somewhere waiting to burst through. I hope this post has inspired you, and will help you remember that there’s a silver (rainbow) lining to every storm!

Classic Blue and White: Inspiration from Nature
As I’ve stated in previous posts, you can find lots of inspiration from nature and what’s around you. An example is the classic blue and white color palette. The inspiration? The sky! This color combination provides just the right amount of brightness, while also being able to blend into one’s current decor. In addition, there are so many different shades of blue, that you’re sure to find one that’s a perfect fit for your space. You can go all out and have an entire room in blue and white, or you can add just a few accessories. Take a picture of the sky and hang it prominently on a wall, create a cluster of blue and white vases, add throw pillows, or add a new rug to a room. No matter how much blue and white you decide to use, you’re sure to create a bright and airy feel in your space!
Picture a Pattern: Part 6
Welcome to my final post on patterns! I’ll be finishing off this series of posts by featuring another piece of clothing. This one is a formal top with a black and white floral pattern. This would be the perfect addition to a monochromatic space that could use a pop of pattern. Framing a similar print creates a visual interest and draws the eye upwards, allowing your visitors to take in the entirety of your beautiful space. In addition, this also saves money since you’re using patterns you already have in your closet. It’s great when your decor can do double duty, and even better when you can throw clothing into the mix! I hope you’ve enjoyed my series on framing patterns, and have found lots of inspiration for your own space!
Picture a Pattern: Part 5
In previous posts I’ve featured patterns from boxes, clothing, and pieces of furniture. Another great object to find patterns? Tissue boxes! It’s probably the last thing you’d think of (I know I did!), but these little squares can provide great patterns and inspiration. On the right is a whimsical blue and white pattern that would look great framed and put in any space. The various shades of blue give this pattern a greater flexibility in matching with colors already in your decorating theme. In addition, the shades of white give it an extra pop that makes the pattern stand out. Tissue boxes come in a wide variety of colors and patterns, and many brands offer seasonal color palates that will give you a myriad of options throughout the year. Remember, by thinking outside the box, you can find surprising new ways to be inspired!
