This is something really cool (to me). the same apartment I posted about here can be found today on Desire to Inspire (thank you Nadia for being on the lookout for things that will inevitably make me fall off my chair).
The apartment looks even more amazing (to me) now and it's really inspiring to get a sense of the process that leads from the before to the after, so i guess I'll post both images. Why I love this interior beside the obvious: girly, pastel and white floors? It is because of the surprising associations, the mixing of pastel and peaux de bête for example, especially with white floor feels very new. So many personal touches, girly touches, but also a framework that shows how nothing in this decor is an accident. I would love to know who the owner/stylist is. Desire to inspire says it has to be a woman.

here is the kitchen in December. Less was not more:
This wall made quite an effect on me. The next day I bought a big of assorted scrapbook paper at Michael's. This was december, the box has not been open. But the intention was pure!
This above was in december. Am I the only one who thinks she can recognize the blue velvet couch above, perhaps reupholstered? AND by the way, this was me obsessing about blue couches. So while I was busy talking, apparently some people took action. Oh, and to toot my own horn again: I was into hideous tapestry back then as well.
Look at the daring blue in the bedroom, and again, that trademark patchwork on the walls:
and finally the picture below, which will prove to My favorite and my Best that it's all about the camera. And knowing how to use it.. ahem.. and a great stylist... and quite a few dineros: this room is practically unchanged aside from crucial notes of color. Never underestimate the power of a bright red butterflies and an armful of leaves.
I forgot to say that you can click on each image to make it bigger.
