There's just something about dresser tops that makes me love to browse through photos of peoples' bedrooms on Flickr. I think it may be because dressers are such personal pieces of furniture. They stow away what we wear... and a person's attire can say a lot about their personality. I believe the dresser top (what's on it, what's arranged, etc.) also can divulge details about a person. I wonder what my dresser top says about me...

What does yours say about you? :)

Candy-Coated Decor

I have a crush on this lovely interior. I came across MissKittyKat's "Home Sweet Home" photo set on Flickr. The cotton-candy pink, egg-shell blue, and lime green are absolutely pretty. And the eclectic mix of patterns, textures, prints, nostalgia, and new is fun and pleasing to the eye. In the above photo I really like those white shelves above the bed. What a great way to vertically display/store books and pictures.

Above: These shelves hold an array of tins and baskets... some new and some vintage.

Above: Isn't this the most relaxing space with all those shades of blue?

Above: A fabulous and functional workspace. I love the light let in by the gorgeous windows... and I'm smitten with that funky pink mannaquin bust.

Above: Here's a cozy corner that I could definitely see myself curled up in reading my favorite decor magazines. Those vintage lanterns add an unexpected but romantic touch.

Above: The television corner and an adorable chest of drawers.
