Totally Inspiring Room

The living area in a project my Isabel Lopez-Quesada via ECLECchic.

This living room is by Spanish interior designer Isabel Lopez-Quesada. This is my second time featuring her work on a Totally Inspiring Room post and I’m sure it won’t be the last! Her rooms always seem supremely livable and effortlessly chic at the same time. Definitely something I find totally inspiring… not to mention that I’m totally in love with the blue/purple/pink/coral scheme. See more of the project at the blog ECLECchic or see more of Isabel Lope-Quesada’s work on her own website!

Happy Tuesday, all! Until next time…

Totally Inspiring Room

Magenta + campaign dresser = the sexiest combo ever!

I saw this vignette on the website of artist Lulie Wallace and it totally rocked my world! I love how the magenta color on the campaign style dresser just pops off the soft pistachio green. The folky still life and glam gold + animal print chair add extra dimension to the tableau, don’t they? See it featured in Society Social’s “The Manifesto Magalog” along with some other cool girly and glam stuff. Until next time!

A Spring Thing

I shared my book find from the thrift store earlier this week but I went there to find black pants for work. I succeeded in my questioning for a pair of nice, inexpensive pants and discovered a brand I’d never heard of as well: Caslon. It is sold at Nordstroms (which explains why I haven’t heard of it, Nordies is out of my price range) and features some nice staple pieces.

Anyway, I decided to check out more about them online and discovered the maxi dress above. I thought it’d be cute with some little added punches of color. I think I’d also throw a yellow boyfriend blazer over it to dress it up a little (I couldn’t find a picture of one that I liked to share here).

So, that’s my attempt at fashion for the week! I truly hope I’m getting better at it. Until next time!

Crew Neck Coat – $99 and Shorts with Front Rib – $40 both at Zara, Drape Front Blouse – $60 at TopShop.

Billy Bikini Sandal – $57 at Isabel Toledo for Payless, Necco Enameled Rope Necklace – $172 at Shopstyle, Plaited Leather Shopper – $149 at Zara.

So here is yet another attempt at fashion… I think I did a better job this time. I’m kind of old school in that I think there is nothing inherently wrong with matching. So, lots of black to punch up the off white and coral combo. Btw, Zara… Wow! And Threadsence, Asos, and Topshop too!

Happy Friday, readers!

Orange + Pink + Black

I’m loving this fresh and sophisticated color combination right now! It just pops and announces that spring and summer are on the way. Amid the photos above (all from Pinterest) are new fashions from J. Crew, art from Laurie Rollit, colorblocked pillows, a pinstripe cake and other fun and infectiously colored items.

More inspiration from Pinterest: this color inspiration board from Jessica Tierney Designs (image via Noa Noa) is a sweet and sexy example of this stellar combo.

Holly Penikas shared this colorful sign… a little kitschy but again, I love the color combination. This just proves that it really is a timeless combo.

It could also be great as a bold choice for a girl’s bedroom…

The just right pops of color to keep a library from being just a dull reading room:
