Pink blooms and curvy lines

Have you seen a gorgeous photo of someone and instantly thought: “What beautiful colours for a room!”?

I saved this pic of Scarlett Johansson a few weeks ago because the colours just made me want to put together a room!

The Inspiration

(Okay she’s absolutely beautiful and sexy, I’ll just state the painfully obvious. But that’s besides the point…)

The pinks, the florals, the orange tanned hue of her skin, the yellow stool, tans…

The Inspiration Translated into a Room

A bold pink hallway with floral wallpaper, and plenty of black and white framed images

Bedrooms, dressing tables, living rooms, dining rooms… all so vibrant, all so alive… and all so tactile!

I’ve enjoyed putting this one together :)
Hope you liked this :)

The Woman behind the Blog

Welcome to my blog! It’s such a pleasure having you here.

What are you inspired by? I am inspired by beautiful and bright interiors, fabric, furniture, pinks, yellows, greens, chairs, china, trees, chocolate, peonies, hydrangeas, cherry blossoms, roses and rhubarb with cream.

Friends and family call me drey (pronounced 'dree'... short for Audrey) and I can often be found zipping through op-shops and vintage stores in the Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia.
