Colorful kitchen backsplashes

When a white kitchen backsplash won't do

I personally love a white kitchen, but I also understand that variety is the spice of life, and every now and then your home needs an element of the unexpected or a dramatic focal point that makes your kitchen special.  The colorful and/or patterned backsplashes below can serve as inspiration when choosing backsplash tile!

This floor to ceiling diamond tile is very striking but at the same time a neutral palette of gray and white keeps the kitchen from looking too busy.

I really like this backsplash idea.  One singles sheet of painted glass makes the backsplash easy to clean, and creates a sleek, minimal look with the same impact as a tile backsplash.

This Moroccan tile backsplash holds a special place in my heart.  Our trip to Morocco was one of the most memorable we've been on.

What do you think of extending the backsplash to include a tile counter?

A honed marble backsplash is an absolutely gorgeous way to mix elegant and rustic into your kitchen.

Still afraid to commit to a colored backsplash or patterned tile?  Try a mosaic with neutral and/or earth tones to add just enough visual interest to get people's attention and up the wow factor of your kitchen.

Beautiful bathroom's with tubs!

Bathrooms with stand alone tubs always make for a stunning appearance! Here are some bold and some beautiful examples for inspiration on how to incorporate your stand alone tub.

I love the way this bathtub is styled.  The art, the plant, the velvet upholstered bench.  It's so beautiful!

I really like tubs by a window. Can you tell?  This tub and the tub placement seems like the perfect place to spend a lazy evening.

The tub is pretty, but how about those shiny tile floors and the marble sink?!

Rustic meets modern with this modern bathtub.

This tub in a small bathroom was carefully measured for and the rest of the bathroom is kept sparse.  The natural light is amazing!

If you aren't shy and/or have a lot of privacy outside, and outdoor bathtub would be an indulgent way to spend a summer day!

How would you or have you incorporated a tub in your bathroom?  Keep in mind that you don't always need to purchase a new tub.  You have options for refinishing a tub or reglazing it.

Beach House - Decorology's obsession this week

Beach House Decorating Ideas and Inspiration

Unfortunately we don't have a beach house, we aren't even looking at beach house rentals this year, and we don't even have a vacation planned.  And after spending this past year working and taking care of baby, I really, really need a vacation.  So for now, I will just have to settle for beach house eye candy.

How does a week at the beach house or at the lake house sound to you?  I wouldn't need anything this fancy to get my fix, but it is beautiful.

Warm sea air and ocean breezes on this beautiful porch would be an amazing way to spend the evening.

A beach house should be bright, open, and airy.  To better integrate it into the beach setting, opt for natural materials like sisal and jute.  White and blue is a fresh clean palette the makes a not to the ocean.

At this beach house a neutral palette with pops of orange make the space more energized.

Notice a trend? A lot of beach houses use a lot of white, and slipcovered furniture makes for easy sand removal!

Even in the bedroom we find natural elements in the form of a sisal rug.  The decorative pillows remind me of the colors of shells.

Daybeds are a great idea for beach house decorating.  I love the freedom to nap or read whenever I want on vacation.

This beach house bedroom is light and airy.  The linen curtains allow ocean breezes through the space.

This kitchen is amazing.  I like that the island is a different color than the cabinets, it really warms up the space.  The pale blue subway tile backsplash is amazing too!

Beautiful bedrooms in shades of gray

Gray bedrooms

Today we are sharing two of our favorite things.  Beautiful bedrooms, and the color gray.  You'll also notice in a lot of these pictures of bedrooms an accent color of pink being used.  Turns out that pink and gray make a beautiful color palette for the bedroom.  And no, we weren't talking about that Shades of Gray in the bedroom!

Beautiful bedroom #1 - I would never think to combine cream, gray, and bright pink, but I love how fresh and warm this bedroom looks at the same time. I wouldn't change a thing, and the upholstered headboard is very to the tufted headboard we have in our bedroom.

Beautiful bedroom #2. Wowza. I love this one.  The velvet headboard is so elegant.  The crisp white bedding is perfectly chic.  The floral sham is the perfect accent to keep the bedroom from being too sterile. The tufted bench is what we've been looking for for our bedroom.

Beautiful bedroom #3: This bedroom has some great architectural details.  The chandelier over the bed makes for great impact lighting.  The bright pink in the floral curtains takes it a bit over the top for me, but over all I like this space.

Beautiful bedroom #4:  This gray bedroom, or neutral bedroom, is so serene.  The white bedding and painted ceiling mix casual with luxe.

Beautiful bedroom #5: This French bedroom is all ease and elegance.  The chandelier and high ceilings are luxe, and the casual sheets and bedding are comfortable.  And how about those hardwood floors?

Beautiful bedroom #6:  This bedroom is sweet and comfortable.  And all about those decorative pillows. The white leather Moroccan pouf is a nice eclectic touch to an otherwise contemporary bedroom.

Beautiful bedroom #7:  This pink and gray bedroom is feminine and simple.  I love the decorative pillows, the picture ledge, and the accent wall.  It also has a mid century modern style too.
