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, Β 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…

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

      All these boys, makes me want to have a lady space LOL…this is circling back to the lady house (wink, wink)…I am going to be subtle but effective so they don’t catch on πŸ˜‰ xo Kristin

      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 πŸ™‚ Love them but, slobs! I love all your pink touches πŸ™‚ Good to know the boys have not said a word…xo K

      Thanks Pam πŸ™‚ I am so excited to add some vibrant color in here. I liked it muted for awhile after the holiday but now I am dreaming of color and spring πŸ™‚ xo Kristin

      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 πŸ˜‰ 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!

      That sounds lovely Anu πŸ™‚ I’m excited to see your entry way makeover. I just added my first DIY piece of artwork to the room today to add in some more pink. xo Kristin
