Pretty Rooms: Touches of Pale Pink

I'm not typically a pink girl. I don't often wear the color nor decorate with it...but...I really do love, love, love the touches of palest pink in these gorgeous rooms.

So pretty right? It's amazing how this color instantly softens a room and adds such a feminine touch. I may be a pink girl after all...

What about you - do you like this shade?

Hope your week if off to a good start! The sun is shining here so that is making me smile...especially when it's supposed to pour the rest of the week.

I heart Canvas

Just discovered a new home design store named Canvas, that opened in New York City's SoHo neighborhood. Their goods are stunning. Simple, modern and timeless. Here's the big plus - their items are sustainable, ethically sourced and many are created by artisans in developing countries.  Canvas' founder, Andrew Corrie, sits on the Aid to Artisans Board  - an amazing non-profit organization leading a handmade revolution, while supporting artists and strengthening communities around the world! You gotta love that.

Check out the eye candy...

I need this chair. Seriously, I do.

So beautiful, right? And good for the planet! It's a win-win!

Have a fabulous Friday.

Everything gray

No, I'm not depressed, nor has the sun left us just yet. I have a thing for gray. Last night I dreamed that I was looking thru Flickr finding beautiful gray photography. Strange? Yes, but I'm hardly surprised, since I completely overdosed on my blogland visits yesterday evening. I decided to follow my dream and do a post on all things gray.

Gray is such a soothing color to me. Perhaps that's why I don't get too sad in the winters here. The rain can be incredibly annoying but on the other hand, on gloomy days, my yoga pants, warm cups of tea and good books beckon me to the sofa. Gray can be soft, feminine, elegant but I also find it such a comfy color. Like a hug. It reminds me of sweatshirts, knitted cardigans and cozy scarves. Heavy clouds. Dripping rain on the window. My kitty cat (she's very gray).

I guess I just love it.
