~ absolutely beautiful things

I am over the moon for Black and Spiro! I could definitely decorate my entire house with this kind of gusto... except it would have to be a different house because mine is already decorated and I don't feel that I can start all over at this point. Second home!?

I literally have to wallpaper something with this wallpaper ASAP!


Anna Spiro is the head designer for Black & Spiro and creates happy and cheerful spaces that immediately brighten your mood... 


Her brilliant and fearless use of color is over the top, extraordinary...












There's that wallpaper again...





Wallpaper. Love.







Hot pink and yellow, orange and blue, lime green and white... 
Could not be any more charming.

Am especially loving it this time of year ~ don't these colors put you in the mood for spring and summer? If I'm ever in Australia, Black & Spiro will be my first visit. In the mean time, thanks to Absolutely Beautiful Things for the great inspiration!

Anna's blog was one of the first I discovered after I realized there was such a thing as a design blog. I was amazed by her way with color and continue to be, just love her work...so pretty and cheerful! My daughter's decorating style is inspired by Anna. I'm with you, her store is on my Aussie trip list.

Bright colors make me happy and remind me of summertime. I think the wallpaper that you like is Thibaut. If not, Thibaut has something very similar.

O. M. G. LOVE all this color--seems like we are all quite taken with all this color but don't use it in our home?? It is super cheerful and creative! Very inspirational for sure. XO
