toward the formal pageantry of church,
or a more casual appreciation of the holiday's trappings,
for this grand occasion,

Paint it Easter EGG!

What could be more inviting
than a plump lavender velvet chair
perfectly oversized for snuggling up
with the one you love?

Comfort…perfected.

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.

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!

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 pairs with white in this airiest of bathroom spas.

Heavenly!

Butter yellow and baby blue
team up in a farmhouse setting
that feels both traditional
and fresh at the same time.

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.

Here — our pastel cast of characters

as charming as mint chip ice cream.
