When It's Grey Outside...

I'm not sure if it's the clouds looming outside (that a few hours ago dropped two inches of hail!) Or my "so-secret-I-didnt-even-know-it-exsisted" love for neon pink that inspired this post but whatever it is, it has brightened my day immensely! ENJOY!
Shocking right? That was my first thought as well after seeing this eye popping magenta sofa on Desire to Inspire...This was just part of a feature the blog did on the newly opened La Belle Juliette hotel in Paris, France. These photos are magnificent and really capture the awe-inspiring, unexpected color and texture combinations the rooms provide. The baroque style decor mixed with modern color schemes keeps the eye interested and the heart longing to be in Paris, just to stay one night in this hotel...
Especially loving the red and magenta together in this sitting room

Bright accent walls for the bold at heart...

And accent furniture and accessories for the not so bold...

Jonathan Adler can do no wrong...
Zebra rug $995
Junior Templeton Chair: $995
I am SWOONING over Jonathan Adler's Junior Templeton chair, the perfect bold piece for any room, the contrast between the bold fabric and stark white legs is heaven. Here are some pretty pink accessories from both Ikea and Design Within Reach....

now rain, rain GO AWAY!
