    Fall in love with these adorable spaces. From a modern mix with a classic twist in Paris to a take on traditional in a Charleston home, these rooms are vignettes of a sweeter life. 

    Think pink! This blush closet is the stuff of cotton candy flavored-dreams. Sweet and elegant, pink is a power color. Don’t be afraid to let it take over a room, like it did in this Florida home

    Low-key Luxury 

    This luxe space stays away from ostentatious overtones by choosing a subdued color palette. Lilacs, neutrals and soft yellows keep this master bedroom quietly colorful. Mirrored side tables and an elegant canopy amp up the romance.

    Playful Peonies 

    A pair of vintage tufted chairs offer a cozy spot for intimate conversation. Peonies add a sweet touch to this tableau and draw out the pink hues from the rug and drapery panels.

    Appealing Aubergine 

    A flair of drama has us drooling over this decadent dining room. The muted aubergine hues drench the space in style, but the dripping crystal chandelier is the rightful star. Ruffle skirted slipcovers and a sumptuous purple velvet on the dining chairs blend formal and casual while adding an air of femininity.

    Forever Floral

    Flowers in a vase last a day, but flowers on a wall last forever. Taking a cue from the romance playbook, designer Steven Stolman showered this powder room in a large-scale floral design. The bright linens pull the space together by bringing in the wallpaper’s pop of yellow and green.

    Seventies Sweetie 

    The mix of ornate opulence and fashion-inspired touches create a stylish scene in the sweet entryway of this Dallas home. We’re swooning over the bench’s effortlessly chic appearance and the way it blends 70s shag with French antiques.

    Flower Flow

    Floral details add a secret splash of glam to this demure ottoman. The modern bone tray, topped with an antique decanter and brass bowl, is just the right twist to pull this scene together.

    Arbor Amour

    Even our four-legged friends know good design choices when they see them. The all-white outdoor furniture is the perfect neutral compliment to the bright yellow wall and abundant greenery. We imagine long, delightful meals spent beneath this charming pergola.

    There's a lot to love about this home in the French countryside.

    French Fantasia

    Grab a cup of coffee and sit awhile in this charming French Country vignette. Gingham chairs and Greek key carpeting mix cultural influences and time periods, but make for an adorable pair. Using the same Gingham pattern for drapery panels ensures the busy Greek key doesn’t overpower.
