My mom is a colorful decorator and has bold and varied color schemes throughout the different rooms in her house. I've realized that my design preferences are heavily influenced by the colorful surroundings of my childhood. My house isn't as color coordinated as my mom's is, but I definitely don't shy away from vibrant and varied hughes. I love how Duncan and I have filled our home with eclectic colorful pieces over the years, but it's hard not be envious of the extreme opposite. Houses filled with white couches, creamy rugs and perfectly curated flea market finds are simply stunning. A lot of times it's the absence of color that makes them so striking.
I was introduced to Anna Rowland's Vintage Parlor Etsy Shop when she started following me on Twitter. It's not often that a shop is so aesthetic pleasing as a whole, but this one really took my breath away. Her beautiful photo styling and consistent color scheme made me want to move right in! Maybe some day I'll dedicate a single room to the absence of bright colors. If I do The Vintage Parlor would be my first shopping stop for pretty home accessories that tell a story.
