Pinterest Favorites {Wall colors + design}

I’m going to warn you, I have been really into hot pink lately. Like REALLY into it. I am now counting the days until we can buy our own house (which should be happening in about a year). The main thing that blows about renting = you have to run everything by your landlord. Our landlord is amazing, but I really doubt he would let me paint his hardwood floors white or paint/wallpaper every room in this house! Anyway bottom line, I can’t wait to own again! Until then, I will just dream.

{Here are some of my all time favorite paint colors/wall coverings/ideas}

Ok although this space is overall very industrial, I love the fact that they brought their own style to it! Perfect mix of rustic, glam, urban, industrial. One of my favorite things in decorating is to mix styles. It brings something unexpected & unique to the table.

Imperial Trellis stenciled ceiling – One word. GORG. Quite possibly the cutest ceiling in the world.

I would love to do something like this in the nursery or bathroom.

Next up is this vintage glamorous bathroom – Loving the pink walls with white accents. Don’t be afraid to go bold with your paint. With the right accessorizing, it could look amazing beyond words.

Bold pink walls & neutrals. The mirrored bed – to die for.

Wallpapered pink kitchen & ghost chairs. Again super unexpected, yet amazing if done right.

Gorgeous chic trellis stencil.. I have been dying to try this on something. I have been thinking about buying a second hand bookcase for my storage challenged home office. As soon as that happens, I’ll be all over this.

Gross cloth walls, stunning chandelier + white deer head hmmm.. you can’t really go wrong with these items!

Color coordinated bookshelf = A-mazzzz. It’s like where do you get all those pink books though??!

Love this funky geometric wallpaper + the hot pink tissue box doesn’t hurt either. A bright pop of color, is sometimes all you need to give a room that wow factor.

What do you think? Do you have any fun & unique plans for your walls?? Feel free to follow me on Pinterest for more ideas.

Happy Friday!! Xo, Melissa

Wall Stencil Debate

So as you know I plan to paint an accent wall in our living room. Yes I know I am taking forever to do this! I’m busy enough doing real estate full time & keeping up the blog. Sometimes home improvement & DIY projects are the last thing I want to do when I have some down time. But, our new couch and rug are on their way so I need to get it together quick!! (Stay tuned for more on this soon)

I am debating between either painting the wall aqua/turquoise &  adding a stencil pattern to liven things up.. or I could forget paint all together and buy some removable wallpaper

What do you think?

I’m kind of hesitant to commit to stenciling! It just scares me.. what if its crooked? Seems stressful. I just want it to look professional and gorgeous. Tips & Advice on this are welcomed!

Anyway, I found Royal Designs on Pinterest. They have some amazing stencils and so much variety too. Some of my favorites:

I’m 100% doing this zebra stripe stencil in my office or our master bedroom! OH EM GEE I LOVE!

Highly obsessed

Cutting Edge Stencils  have gorgeous modern designs too

Now for some wallpaper ideas:

Grass cloth woven wallpaper could be gorgeous and add a good amount of texture ..

Or of course this gorgeous wallpapered accent wall.. you have seen this on the blog before. Still in love with it.

Removable wallpaper is popping up everywhere lately. Look what I found at Urban Outfitters.

Graham & Brown OR Farrow & Ball are good sources for wallpaper.

SO what would you do? Wallpaper or stencil?
