Sundays Are for Relaxing

I live for weekends, but my favorite time to unwind and lounge around my place is on a Sunday. After making breakfast, grab a stack of magazines or a good book and relax in bed -- pure bliss. And to really enjoy this time, it's all about the bed. Between my comforter, pillow top mattress and way too many pillows, it's the perfect situation. A cozy bed really is everything. Enjoy your Sunday. I know I am.

Colorful Interiors That Inspire

I invited a writer from Arcadian Lighting, a wonderful source for affordable light fixtures, to share a collection of vibrant, colorful interiors. Enjoy!

Craving Colorful
Simple furnishings act as the perfect canvas to support large floral artwork and colorful patterned blankets. There's plenty of color in this room to make it feel lively and fresh without feeling overwhelmed.
Craving Colorful
This living room has a fun and quirky vibe with its light avocado painted accent wall and fuschia pink sofa and chair. The deep blue lamp with a bubbly patterned shade looks right at home in this setting.
Craving Colorful
A cool blue wall color and playful artwork really liven up this apartment and give it a unique personality. It's almost the way a child would decorate a home.
Craving Colorful
The bright orange and red Moroccan-style living room works on so many levels. The lovely swirling designs can be seen in the wrought iron furniture and the reflective tiled wall.
Craving Colorful
A warm shade of yellow creates a perfectly harmonious and cozy atmosphere. The traditional furniture and sweeping drapes are so elegant against the subtle chinoiserie wall paper. The pendant light is a clever combination of a mini chandelier and inverted pendant.
Craving Colorful
This bright Barbie pink is surprisingly chic and sophisticated when used with white moulding and a sleek, modern chaise lounge. Gold and crystal accents add an air of luxury.
Craving Colorful
A bright floral wallpaper may seem like too much, but when paired with simple white furnishings, the room feels more invigorating than outdated.

The translucent ceiling light with such rich, dark wall color intensifies the colors around it. Orange becomes more bold, whites are more white and greens pop. Images 1 |2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8
