Tropical Bliss


Living in Seattle with winter months of grey skies and cold air doesn't mean you have to limit yourself from achieving tropical bliss! Okay so maybe it does unless you go on vacation, but there are ways to make your home, wardrobe, and spaces around you bring color, happiness and warmth to your world so you don't completely lose yourself in the February gloom that Seattle brings, and can really start to get to you.

When it came to my bedroom, I knew I wanted it to be a space that made me feel instantly happy, and this Palm Jungle wallpaper, that I may have stared at online for months before finally purchasing it, did just that for me. I love her so much.

While there's still some work that I'd like to do to the bedroom (get some wall sconces, for one, and the journey will continue to be shared on ze blog with you fine people, heh heh), the wallpaper really made the room what it is. It made up for art, and really allows it to feel complete, even though there's really very little going on in the space itself besides the essential bed, rug, and nightstands. So for those of you that are thinking about hangin that paper and just can't quite make the plunge, just do it -you'll be stoked. If you're into this particular print, I highly suggested you look at the oh so intriguing Palm Jungle1004 print which is essentially the same but with darker hues. It brings a contemporary and moody swag with it that I'm really vibing on. If you dig it, I dare you to hang that paper and please, pretty please, send me some pics! But most importantly, pick a print you're not going to get sick of in the next few years, and one that makes you truly happy.

With a comfortable room comes a comfortable velvet slip that I pretty much wear to bed every night. Sike - lies for days. But I absolutely ador this velvet piece. It's kind of racey, but can be super versatile with a t-shirt underneath or paired with a fur coat to even out the level of scandal. Peep it, my peeps:
