~ A lighter palette ~

I have been adding a lighter color palette to my home decor
pale pinks,greens,blues and creams
I love the way my french zinc watering can looks with the light colors and florals

The floral pillow shams were a $1.99 Goodwill find
love them

The ruffled edging is perfect
very shabby chic

A favorite chippy pink mirror

Pastel dried florals mixed with the antique french zinc flower pots

My favourite light green french bistro chair

The perfect color palette for Spring and Summer

~ Have a wonderful weekend ~

funny you should post this...I painted my dining room and now need inspiration for a fresh new look for my mantle. I love the zinc pots on yours and I definately adore the light fresher colors. Your home just screams fresh and calm ~

It's lovely.....I could just move in!
I'm thinking of when we get to the upstairs I want to paint everything white, trim and walls.
Have you ever gotten tired of it?

Lara said...

Your new floral pillows are perfect for the whole look! I am looking for floral pillows for my couch right now. I LOVE your bistro chairs & zinc flower pots! The robin's egg blue crate you have found sounds wonderful; I can't wait for you to share it here.

Rachel- I don't know how you keep all that light colored stuff clean, but I love it. Wish I could do it, but I think I will just pop in here often and enjoy yours!
Is your scrub brush white, too?
Hugs- Tete
