Grey and dreary outside bright and cheery inside!

We have had a few days of dark dreary rain and with a few more on the forecast I am going a bit stir crazy. Alberta may be cold 7 months of the year but you can almost always count on bright blue stunning Alberta skies. So when we get Vancouver weather I don't know what to do! My sunglasses are collecting dust.

I thought I would search out a few bright interiors to cheer me up. My home is a palette of cream, white, grey and black with accents of blue and yellow. All in all I like a calming envelope for my home.

That said I love a daring colour scheme. In fact in our home office (ongoing project, don't ask) I have big plans for dark brown walls,  orange accents and chocolate accents. We are still in the process of mudding our walls, which FYI is no fun, but I have started collecting accessories for my bright room.

Here's what I have so far:
1 - Antique letter box the perfect way to store those odds and ends


2 - These are the three fabrics I have started with, I'm loving the leopard!


3 - The wood espresso base of this lamp is perfect


4 - I can't help but love an old rotary phone


5 - This is a silver antique sugar cube server, I use it  to hold a lovely pen


6 - This vintage hotel desk bell adds a sense of whimsy


7 - The classic Hermes orange box is beautiful in this colour scheme

Here are a few beautiful bright interiors to cheer up even the darkest day!
