Radiant Orchard is Pantones 2014 color of the year
I'm not sure if I'll be adding any of this color to my home, but I did buy a orchid cashmere sweater...

Australian Home of Collections

Penny Mims  and John Buxton have filled their Australian home with collections... Penny has spent a lifetime scouring secondhand shops for furniture, paintings, sculptures and textiles. The midcentury home boasts open interiors, generous light and original architectural features, making it an ideal backdrop for her accumulated possessions.
I Like the look of an eclectic assortment of chairs...
A great idea to add a little pattern to a room, just cover a canvas with wallpaper or fabric. Also lace tacked to the window is an inexpensive way to add privacy without loosing light...
Love how the rugs do not match the chair fabric...antique rugs look good with anything.

A Passive House

This is California's first Certified Passive House.
A Passive House is a very well-insulated, virtually air-tight building that is primarily heated by passive solar gain and by internal gains from people, electrical equipment, etc. Energy losses are minimized.
California's first certified Passive House located in Sonoma, California. Unlike many green/eco-friendly homes that have a tendency to be sleek and modernist, this home is described as a warm, modern farmhouse.

Alpine Ski Chalet

 The design was inspired by the traditional mountain architecture of the Swiss Alps... painted posts and beams, built in furniture and numerous balconies.

Ready to hit the slopes?!

Drew Barrymore's Home

Drew Barrymore has sold the mansion where she and Will Kopelman were wed. The two-story 1937 traditional home sits on two private acres and has six bedrooms, 7.5 bathrooms, more than 6,000 square feet and sold for over $6 million.

I really like this home, the rooms look cozy, colorful and comfortable...not easy to achieve with so much square footage.

Mix it Up

I love the look of multiple prints and lots of color in a room. I tend to be a little too matchy with my colors, but I'm working on adding a zinger color to my rooms. 

I found these pictures on Pinterest of fun mixed patterned rooms...

This is a great idea when you can't find enough panels at the thrift store!
