As I always say, you never know when inspiration strikes and mine came with this fabulous pair of Gianmarco Lorenzi Double Platform Heels (trademark of this fabulous designer) with exposed zipper detailing within the exposed platform. The detailing of this black shoe allowed me to carry this over into great decor options that can add some pop throughout your home!
In the bathroom, add details such as this black and white Legacy Home Linea Graphic Shower Curtain which has a nice architectural feel. Moving into the bedroom, flatsheets by Natori are another classic with a twist as they have a Ming theme on them. Pair this with bedding by Ralph Lauren as it's a classic that never goes out of style.
Moving into the kitchen, I am a huge fan of Mavea as we use this throughout the day, unlike my Penguin which turns my water into seltzer, this container purifies water and can hold large amounts. Paul and I drink from this everyday and many times, my water filters here before being used for my Penguin or Breville (tea maker that I am also obsessed with). In addition, I love fun dessert plates as these are perfect when you're having something sweet or you want to eat from a smaller plate, I love these Vagabond Vintage Black and White plates.
Moving into the living room or wherever you choose to relax in, I think having a Media Cabinet is a must! You can store your media in here OR it's great in your office if you want to store your accessories which is also another fun way to display as well as organize them. Add fun pillows to your space from Horchow which has visually appealing graphics. Finally, we're always charging our tech everywhere and sometimes you just want to talk with others on a phone (you know the ones we grew up on), so these Bluetooth Handset and Charging Stations available in black and white is perfect and adds a bit of pop in your decor!
It's no joke (yes Happy April's Fool Day), when I think bold colors that are perfect for the spring/summer season, Teal is always one of the hues that I lean towards! It's fresh, bright and works well for many people. My inspiration comes from this maxi by Roberto Cavalli. I love that for the kitchen, you can get Bobby Flay's ombre-esque drinking glasses or Staub's Cherry Mini Round Cocette which is perfect for making meals! Brighten up your bathroom with Sonoma Life with their shower curtain! We spend a lot of time in there, why not give it some fabulous pop! Finally, it's time to rest. How about a leather chair or this shay ottoman from Room and Board which ensures that your hues allow you to feel as comfy as possible whether friends or over or you're getting you time in front of the TV!
Kitten Lounge's signature color is bright pink! Interestingly enough, I was never a pink girl but slowly but surely, I am loving this hot hue and finding ways to pop it into my wardrobe and sprinkle it through my decor whenever possible! It's even (when done correctly) can be included in your home even if you're living with your boyfriend! Paul suggests that the way to sneak in pink hues is to understand that guys within the last 10 years have become more open to color. So start with a neutral canvas in a spare room, and had in a red or blue accent color. Once he's ok with that, you can take out the hues that are not meant to bein the room and find ways to bring in pink as the grounding color!
Today's inspiration came from Kitten Lounge's signature color and Maria Grachvogel's (I totally drool for this piece) gorgeous bold maxi dress embodies this aesthetic without a doubt! I'm loving Jonathan Adler's Southampton Candle which mixes in this fab hot pink color, brown and white colors within its packaging. Horchow is one of my favorite places to go for decor so of course, we include it on the site quite a bit! I'm loving not only this fabulously crisp white couch as well as the pops of color which has white and brown pillows and the pops of the bright pink. Of course, Anthropologie is another fave of mine as well. I love this Smoldering Shower Curatin which has gradiant of colors in it with a frilly look that is super femme as well as one of my favorite glasses known as the Helianthus Goblet in a nice pink pop.
