interior obsession: pastels

SO, my love affair with pastels continues.
This time in the form of Ana Antunes' amazing home (you can view more of it here!) I am in love with every inch of it... the palette, her perfectly styled vignettes, the mix of patterns and furniture she chose.
I'm so in love with color and design and for many years of my life only wanted to be an interior decorator. Ana definitely inspires me to explore the world of home styling!

  2. Beautiful! I love pastels too, anything light, airy, and clean really. I've always wanted to be an interior designer but I went to school for communications instead so interior decorating has become my hobby and I love it.
