the color of spring.

I’m sitting with the windows wide open… as open as they can possibly be. I love the smell of spring, especially now because it’s mixed with the smell of our neighbor doing laundry. (yum!) It seems like overnight everything is blooming here in the NY area, so this post is inspired by the amazingly exciting color of forsythia’s.

Growing up, the gigantic forsythia bush on my quiet suburban street was always my manhunt hiding spot of choice. This polaroid warms my heart.

There are few images that actually give me butterflies. This one somehow does it… the stripes and modern crib mixed with the vintage dresser are so chic!

Probably not an interior I’d have in my own house, but I love the industrial look of the cinder blocks with the old school velvet chair.

This long with the striped ceiling were shot from the same house  belonging to Jenna Lyons, Creative Director of J.Crew and was featured in Domino last year. My all time favorite bathroom was also included in this house, but I’m waiting to post with a bathrooms post. :)

    The second picture from the bottom is also from Domino. It’s actually the same house as the baby’s room with the striped ceiling. So beautiful!
