Spring is all about clean spaces, natural light, and greenery. There’s something so refreshing about a bright airy bedroom that just wants to make us hit snooze. Here are some beautiful examples of airy bedrooms perfect for springtime snoozing:

All that fluffy white bedding looks so dreamy in this wonderfully lit room. We love how the clean white shelving let’s all the little knickknacks speak for themselves, and the burst of freshness the leafy plant provides.

It’s Monday, and we’ve all been day dreaming about those legendary 5 more minutes in bed. So in the spirit of Monday sleepiness, join us in coveting in these beautiful beds and their unique and stylish headboards:

In 2014, Pantone announced Radiant Orchid as the color of the year, and while the lilac-y tone was fun and bright, we are excited to see more of the 2015 Pantone color — Marsala. Marsala is a warm, rustic brown-hued red that has a versatile and timeless feel that goes great in just about any space. Here are a few fun finds:

Marsala plays well with others! In this living room, the earthy reds of the couch and rug are the perfect compliment to the blue and gold elements.

It also looks great against this sophisticated white palate — you can find hints of Marsala in tons of gorgeous oriental rugs we have here in the showroom!

Marsala can be a vibrant accent wall that adds some POP without being overbearing.
