It’s so interesting to me to see how my design aesthetic evolves as I get older. Five years ago, I was slapping apple green paint on my walls and buying bright, poppy accessories. Now, I’m craving something a bit different. I lean more towards neutral backdrops with subtle hints of pattern and texture. Take our living room, for example:

My latest neutral focus has been my bedroom. Yes, my current bedspread is quite fetching, but for some reason I’m dying for a white oasis. I’ve been on the hunt for a lovely white bedspread, neutral but patterned sheets, and a little splash of color in some lamps and pillows. It’s quite the change from my norm, but I’m excited to have a hotel-esque bedroom at some point in the future (doesn’t white bedding just scream luxury hotel room?). Here is a dump of the inspiration I’ve been putting on pinterest recently.*

Anyone else out there noticing their style changing as they grow up? Are you moving toward more sophisticated palettes, or more fun color combinations?
*for those of you that have been living under a rock (or, if you’re my dad), Pinterest has saved me from a very disorganized jumble of bookmarks and has now put all of my inspirations in one fabulous place. i heart it.
