29 Notes
  • I love the lavender and orange party combo!

  • I am in love with the lavender and white striped wallpaper, simply stunning collection!

  • The images are gorgeous, love them all. Job well done :)

  • Just beautiful! We are trying out the ‘pink’ theme this Christmas:

  • i’ve been a bit obsessed with shades of this for about 6 months.

    love it

  • Beautiful lavenders! I really like that first one. The color combination in the one with paneled walls is so pretty together.

  • Such a great blog. I absolutely adore it. I love the sense of interior design that you seem to capture in your photos. Maybe you could help me do a special interior design post for my blog, and I could help you out too? Check out my site, Really great stuff. Thanks for putting this out in the web:)

  • oh wow. it’s been a while but i still continue to get inspired and fall in love w/ your site/blog everytime :)

  • What a coincidence, my bedroom colour is exactly like the bedroom with two windows! Lovely shades of lavender. I was thinking of painting a new colour, maybe some earthy tones such as beige, dark brown combinations or even sage..but came across this article I guess lavender is pretty charming colour. I think I shall halt the idea of repainting my bedroom with a new colour. I think I’m gonna add white furnitures against lavender. And off white sheer day curtain for the window. Is it lovely?

  • Such beautiful photos…and really great ideas for decorating my studio! :-)

  • *sigh* I love lavender rooms so much that I quite selfishly want the color all to myself. I want to paint my living room lavender and have friends visit and exclaim, “how original!” instead of “how trendy!”

    I am hoping I will still love this after the trend fades… but I hoped that about cowboy boots too!

  • Beautiful color palette- love lavender! That canopy bed is amazing :)

  • m. – thank you!

    dallas shaw – photographer is paul costello

    michaela – thanks so much + hoping can live up . . .

    kaijuu – the south of france is stunningly beautiful, especially the lavender fields – hope your dreams come true


  • julieann – thank you!

    beauty comma – sounds lovely – hope there will be photos


    yam^Artfingers^ — thanks so much! and also for de-lurking :)

    shall definitely try to find some more images of walk-in closets, wardrobes and storage – for now, you could check these out:

  • Fabulous colour! Happy December, Lidy

  • The images are pure eye candy – thanks a lot for this colorful inspiration.

  • the first photo represents home decor just as i like it!

  • love that photo with the black shoes next to the bed. Where did you find it? just curious who the photog is.


  • love, love, love this color combination! lavender is one of my favorites!

  • gorgeous! perfect color for this time of year.

  • The dusty lavender and pale violet hues in these photographs are so alluring. I also love the faded blush – and the enormous satin rose corsages are making me swoon. There is something spectacular about ice with faded petals.
    Beautiful start to the day. I can’t wait to see what you will bring us this season. Anticipation and delight!

  • Lavender has always had a special place in my heart. It reminds me of a hopefully impending trip to study art in the south of France in Lacoste. The lavender fields are what I dream of. Therefore, whenever I smell the fragrance of a lavender bloom or gaze upon its smoky, mysteriously romantic hue. It takes me away into my dreams again.

  • Lavender is such a soft colour. So gorgeous. I don’t think I could ever decorate my entire house with lavender, but a few sections here and there would be beautifully floral.

  • My spare room (soon to be nursery) is lavender (it was so when we bought the house)…it used to be my favourite colour…these are so gorgeous…and LOVE that strapless dress with the sash under the bust, so beautiful!

  • truly stunning – your sense of colour is superb

  • these are the exact colours i used in my living room this autumn! but now i’ve done my christmas/winter decorating… i’m doing a new colour scheme each year, too – this year, it’s inspired by nature in winter. lots of white, some pale blue and naturals, weathered wood and a few tiny splashes of red – like red berries partly covered in ice and snow.

  • loving the lavender.

  • love Love LOVE this post and that color! I want those purple-striped walls

  • oh i so in love with the dress AND the colour. How I wish I can turn back the time and do my wedding dress again..and just like that. DIVINE!!

    hey babe..can u pls put up more pics/ideas on walkin wardrobe/storage. I’m looking up for ideas for my new home:)

    I LOVE your blog. Been silent reader for ages.keep it up!
