Think Interior

Interior design has to be one of my favorite things. I love finding new ideas for my home, and since I'm moving and re-decorating, I spend a lot of time researching room ideas, wall colors, prints...
Here are some cool ideas I found.

too pink? Maybe for a couples bedroom, I would say so... But still beautiful!



Something always brings me back to the cool colors. There is just something about blue and brown that gets my attention. I was never a big fan of warm colors, my mom is, so she always bugs me that I need some orange or red in my apartment!


I love how this bedroom looks! When I showed my husband he said it doesnt look cozy, it looks like a hotel room, I must disagree with him on this one...

This dining room is beautiful, and super chic. I just love how that striped rug made the room look a little bigger, and longer. Those chairs are gorgeous! I fell head over heels with them! you can see they are of high quality and they look extremely confortable. Honestly I was positive I wanted a long table for my dining room, but after I saw how elegant this looks, and it fits 6 people, I'm a little confused! I found it on HGTV
Chair: Restoration Hardware
Rug: flor
Chandelier: Z Gallerie
Wall paint color: Behr Fashion Gray (Matte from Home Depot)


Have a great Tuesday lovelies!

  1. I love that striped rug in the dining room! And I agree with you on the "hotel" bedroom - it looks wonderfully cozy to me!

  2. I am loving the pink. Maybe too much for a bedroom, but not for any other room in my book! Of course, my whole downstairs is painted coral (and the fiance loves it)! xoxo

  17. These are beautiful rooms - so elegant and grown up! I find the colour palate and graphic elements really inspiring. I love the bedroom, but have to agree with your husband... it's not that it's uncosy, it's that it's all so formal and pristine I'd be afraid to sit down anywhere unless I was dressed for cocktails!

    Really loving your blog!
