La Vie En Rose and the State of my Living Room

….Ooooh! The State of my Living Room…that was very presidential of me!

One thing leads to another…

Being a design lover and DIY thinker, I find inspiration everywhere. Recently, I purchased some blush pink roses for my home to beat the winter blahs.

When I buy fresh flowers they migrate with me to whatever room I’m hanging out in. Does anyone else do this? Is it weird??

Well, this Saturday morning,  I was hanging out in the living room with my roses and Dave reading the paper and inspiration struck. You may have seen my picture on Instagram.

It made me realize how badly I want to put some more color in this room. It also made me realize how it needs to be pink. I love a touch of pink with black, grays, and whites.

Then, we strolled over to the flea market to pick up the desk we purchased for Bman’s room and I got more inspiration.

Then, my friend Julia over at Cuckoo 4 Design shared her latest DIY art and it reminded me of an inspiration image I had pinned to DIY and totally haven’t gotten around to doing yet.

So, for spring I am adding in some more pinks, blacks, and grays, and even more gold to this room. I feel like the universe is telling me to do so.

And I don’t know if you noticed but my Lust List last Friday was full of rose, pink, and black inspiration…

I am seeing my living room through rose-colored glasses (which I think totally fits my optimistic nature). I have some DIY projects planned for this space to bring in some much-needed spring color! They are going to cost next to nothing because I am light in the decorating wallet right now due to some upcoming expenses. Pillows, an art wall,. and more…

Here’s some more DIY art ideas: DIY Black + White Abstract Art, DIY Placemat Art

Do you have something that recently inspired you to add something into your home decor?

    Yep! My nail polish inspired the color scheme or basically my entire house! I think the pink will be a great addition Kristen:)

    It will be perfect with a touch of pink. You know I’ve been on the pink trip for a while with my pink pillows, pink boxes, pink art…My husband hasn’t complained yet ;)

      I think the more I get surrounded by the boys in my life I crave more feminine touches…they are dirty! I may paint a room blush pink when they are teenagers just to escape their effect on my home :) Love them but, slobs! I love all your pink touches :) Good to know the boys have not said a word…xo K

    I loved the room to begin with, I wouldn’t have changed a thing!

    I’m more a fan of purple than pink personally :P

      Thanks, after Christmas I needed a neutral space but now I’m craving some color! I’m just the opposite…I would chose pink over purple any day ;) xo Kristin

    I think blush pink or rose is so lovely. I just knit something for my living room in pink and have the Muuto dot rose coat hook waiting for my entry makeover. Pink will look so pretty in your living room!
