more blue + inspiration


I gave my daughter my Studio Violet poster for her room. Wasn't that nice of me? I figure I will actually look at it more here than when it was propped against the wall of my studio.
These colored lanterns are getting a new lease on life too. I bought them a few years back, but somehow they just didn't get used. Now Lucy turns them on when it gets dark and they give the newly blue room a wonderful glow. Isn't it funny how different the blue looks in these two photos? Top photo is more realistic, although I prefer the bottom one.

So, madly surfing the web this week, as a respite from painting walls here's what I found inspiring:
Shabd's spring collection via Frolic. It's just soooo pretty.
This wonderful Dutch lady, Ingrid Jansen and her amazing home and shop via Bloesem and SF Girl by Bay.
And this last one may be my favorite, this dear little blog from Finland, Anna Emilia.
Have a nice weekend, everyone!

I put that poster on my Christmas list but Santa didn't notice... Thanks for the links, I haven't had the time to surf the web much lately so it feels good that you find interesting things for me to check ;)

Ooooh...! I will have to check out the little blog from Finland. And the room looks beautiful, Jill. I loved the observation you made about seeing the poster more by placing it in Lucy's bedroom. How true that is...no?
