Whenever I see pictures of a mint and white bathroom I tear them out for my ‘someday’ inspiration folder. There’s something fresh and clean about these colors in a bathroom — what do you think of this color scheme?

I just came across this adorable breakfast nook from an old issue of Oprah magazine. I’m in love with the striped chairs, the over-sized chalkboard, and the mini-gallery of oil paintings. I actually have a similar table already and black and white kitchen chairs; all I’m missing is some vintage art to recreate this look. I’m going to keep this image in mind for summer flea market inspiration!

I love this bathroom makeover from the blog AB Chao. The monogrammed shower curtain, the bowl of nail polish, and the cute striped accessories all caught my eye. My favorite part though is the mini-gallery of Polaroid pictures tacked up with patterned washi tape. I think the impermanence of this little art installation makes it feel so special and unfussy. It makes me want to find some film for the dusty old Polaroid camera in my closet! What do you think, do you like the idea of unframed artwork in your home?
