The Design Olympics



If you know me... you know that I adore the olympics. I sit and watch every single night! One of my favorite things is the opening ceremony. I love watching all the different countries march in, so proud to be there, but my favorite part is to see what they are all wearing. Throughout the olympics... these outfits and colors distinguish who they are and where they come from. In the same fashion, so does design from some of these various countries. In an olympic ode, I will share with you some of my favorite (from my newly started over archive) design styles from around the world!

so in this year... I love the soft color palette, the beautiful natural woods, and indoor flora and fauna of belgian design

I so admire those who decorate with this much spunk, I prefer to keep this huge menagerie of colors in my outdoor spaces.


french design has such bind on my heart... if this post were only about french design, it would be 4 days long.


fresh, white, and bright!



as it is today, shabby chic has many inspirations, but its roots lay in the english countryside.

I hope you enjoyed this short trip around the world (mostly through Europe). Thanks to my lovely friend Sara for some inspiration! Have a wonderful day!
