I am the first to admit that my home decor is not very feminine and romantic. Except in the kids’ quarters. You can most likely envision that with two young girls we get our dose of sweet pinks and soft colors. Maybe it’s because of spring in the air or me simply getting influenced by all the lovely pink shades that I see in the design world right now. But small touches of pink are starting to grow on me and something I can see making a debut in even other areas of my home.
I really like the mix of textures and and colors in this fresh formal dining room. The distressed woods and natural textures together with the warm pink damask wallpaper and crisp white wainscoting is airy and lovely.
And pay attention to the curtains! Simple white drapes from Ikea that look like a million bucks in this room simply by having some green pom-pom trim added. (Note to myself – must try!)

I have a new-found crush on this “Color Field Blush” pillow from Dwell. I can see this as an accent pillow on a chair or bed with pure white fabrics.
This Cherry Ink dinner plate by Paul Timman for Ink dish is also a wonderful way to bring spring home. (But personally I would keep my large white dinner plates and just opt for Cherry blossom dessert plates. Somehow I can’t see a steak on this friendly pattern! But then again, it is probably only me!)
The sun is out in Seattle.Yeah! Wonderful spring is here for real and I hope that the sun is shining on you too – wherever you are! Much fondness – Monika.
