Between crushes, fascinations and lust-have trends, our sea of inspiration is never-ending, which brings me to my latest obsession… the color MINT! From my manicures to my midnight snacks, I just cant get enough. I took a cue from my go-to hue and decided to inject a happy medium (literally) into my home.

Some of your heels are works of art, so why not display them as such? Line the walls of a walk-in closet or a dressing area with picture-rail molding to make a tidy yet visually arresting display. Buy preprimed pieces, and have them cut to length at the store. Paint before installing, either the color of the wall or a bold accent shade. Space the rails a foot apart, and attach them to the wall with construction adhesive. Hammer finishing nails every 18 inches (you don't have to hit studs), countersink nails, spackle, and touch up with paint.

I recently discovered The Selby , and here is a home, more or less 1000 sq ft., bursting with neutral colors making it 'bigger' than it actually is. I really love the combination of open planning and simple palette in this home.. Everything's seems within reach but doesn't appear too crowded.. Every area is properly spaced.. First thing that caught my eye was the loft guest bed (sleeps overs not a problem!).. Then there's the splendid living area adjacent with the long wooden dining table paired with immaculate white chairs.
Coastal hallway Create a coastal feel with tongue-and-groove panelling, wicker storage baskets and crisp white walls. Flowers in a country-style jug keep the scheme fresh.

I've been having trouble sleeping lately. I'm not sure why. I'm positive I'd sleep like a baby if only my bedroom resembled any of these. Heavenly... All these images have been floating around my laptop over the past year or so which means I can't give credit, unfortunately.
