Mellow Yellow

It’s been dreary for days and daaaaaayyyys, so I’ve been trying everything to perk myself up. I bought some lovely pastel tulips at the market, pulled out my spring bedding and even made lemonade today. And it’s finally working! I feel much better, and I know it’s only a matter of time before the sun peeks through those clouds. In the meantime, I figured I’d bring some sunshine to the blog, as well. Hope you enjoy these French yellow rooms as much as I do! 

My lemonade, served in a set of these French bee glasses...

Rules? Where We’re Going, We Don’t Need Rules!

Sometimes decorating feels like a foreign language: Do you put the rug under the couch or just the table? Can you mix stripes and florals? Do 1950s pieces work well with 1800s pieces? Wait, what is a credenza?

Fortunately, unlike learning French, there’s only one rule to remember: There are no rules when it comes to decorating! And Ballard Designs set out to prove it, listing seven common decorating “rules” that one should never abide by. Check out their list and then leave us a comment below, telling us whether or not you agree that these traditional tactics are better off forgotten — or necessary for a harmonious home.
