Light and bright

Los Angeles-based visual merchandiser Chele Mckee shared with us an inspiring cottage she designed and I had to then share with you guys because many of you, like me, are dying for spring to arrive and these photos really help with the end-of-winter gloom. The colours are so beautiful and energizing. Lovely!! Thanks Chele!

This post is EXACTLY what I needed... a visual vacation full of refreshing colors. Thanks!

I've always loved that first photo - I remember it from when you posted about photographer Kathryn Russell http://www.desiretoinspire.net/blog/2009/7/1/kathryn-russell.html

I love it! Especially the orange phone and those green metal chairs!

Sooooo torn, feeling great because the images are so beautiful but jealous as all hell that my house doesn't look this way :-D

I really like how the color choices give the rooms an inviting cozy feel. And the recessed lighting is a very nice touch in the dining area.

I looooooooove these pictures. Talk about a breath of fresh air! To me, this is how design should be...light, fresh, and wonderful :)

Welcome, Spring!

@grace: don't know much, but the daybed fabric is the same as my shower curtain! Got it on sale last year at urban outfitters. Total money saver here-think it was twenty-five bucks.
