The Decorista tip of the day...go for serene in the bedroom

via livelikeyou
This weekend I was in such need for a good nights rest. Then I realized why its so important to make sure your bedroom is a peaceful haven to retire to. I think its perfectly okay to go with very light or no color in the bedroom (even though I am usually all about color). Have you ever noticed how all white bedding is just so inviting? Pattern is more than welcome in a serene bedroom just keep it monochromatic. I am absolutely loving these bedrooms that give my eyes complete peace. 
So, when decorating your bedroom, make sure to create a place that draws you in.
Your body will totally thank you! 

Home Tour + Bliss in the kitch' : a pastel paradise

I am all for bold and beautiful colors in design. Conversely, there are times when my palate gets overloaded and I would relish the feeling of coming home to a muted color scheme like this beautiful home. I adore the pastel colors of this home, the bedroom is so relaxed and cozy. Sometimes no color, says so much more than bold and bright color, no?

It's the middle of the week and inspiration is abounding all over the internet. 
I can't keep it all together, but I will tell you this...
Orange and Navy are a killer color combination and these rooms cannot begin to describe the dynamics of this combo. Effortless and extraordinary!
I urge you to not be afraid of using either color in your home as they are the ultimate
"statement making" colors!

Currently the sun is out and the weather is warm.
I am loving it.
In my excitement, we here at my apartment have decided to create a brightly colored lounge
on our patio. I have been looking in all the latest mags for inspiration and
bright and fun colors are everywhere!
Living Etc, Elle Decor, even Traditional Home all feature bright neon colors in the home.
It must be the new trend.
