Spring is upon us, and with it the holiday celebrating new life.
Whether your inclinations tend
toward the formal pageantry of church,
or a more casual appreciation of the holiday's trappings,
for this grand occasion,
Paint it Easter EGG!
The cast of characters in our festive pastel parade:
• • • Lavender • • •
What could be more inviting
than a plump lavender velvet chair
perfectly oversized for snuggling up
with the one you love?
Tufted lavender velvet makes this
crisp crystalline living room approachable
in a friendly yet very sophisticated way.
For those who fear pastels as child's play,
lavender never looked more classy.
• • • Orchid • • •
That lovely balance point between pink and lavender.
Velvet again, paired with bold wallpaper.
Funny, isn't it, to think of pastel anything as bold
— but here you go!
• • • Pink • • •
Serenity is the earmark of this lovely pink retreat.
Soft, mellifluous, and glamorous.
who couldn't relax on this chaise?
The elegance of pink in a color-wash ombré wall
— from cream at the top fading down to petal pink at the base —
this is how I like my simplicity:
colorful & mindful,
with lots of room for my mind to roam.
• • • Periwinkle • • •
If any color speaks the language of Easter,
in my book periwinkle does.
Paired with bright white,
it rates at the top of my color love scale.
• • • Baby Blue • • •
Baby blue pairs with white in this airiest of bathroom spas.
• • • Yellow • • •
Butter yellow and baby blue
team up in a farmhouse setting
that feels both traditional
and fresh at the same time.
• • • Mint • • •
This quintessentially girly bureau is
a fairly conventional execution of mint.
The lacy white accessories, however,
float like doilies reinvented in metal......
If that bureau represents mint in a conventional sense,
this chevron flooring moves mint in a totally unexpected direction.
• • • Easter Basket • • •
Here — our pastel cast of characters
are rounded up into a dining room
as charming as mint chip ice cream.
