Color Inspiration: Blush

The blush tones are some of my favorite hues for spring; I love how girly and fresh the color is. I wanted to share a round up of some blush colored items to get you to love the color as much as I do (if you don't already).

Dining Room Chairs

Our dining room chairs have been on the bottom of our home's update list for a while. I like our chairs a lot, but what I do not like is that they are all exactly alike and really, really plain. I am not really sure what our plan of action will be. The chairs are in perfect condition so buying all new ones is not an option, but I am hoping we can make a few minor tweaks or possibly switch out a couple to make the dining room more interesting. Here are a few of my inspiration pictures:

I have considered adding some sort of detailing to the back like the ring in this picture; it would be a simple update.

I absolutely love this dining space. This is not in our future, but I love the variety of seating and the contrast of colors.

via Pinterest
This room also has three different types of seating, but they all have the same color in common, which keeps it more cohesive and less bold.

This may be a good option for us also - to add a different chair at the head of the table on both ends. I love the wingback chair at the head.

Here is another space with all the chairs matching except for the chairs at the head of the table. I love the addition of the pattered wingback chairs, and this could definitely be a possibility in our space.

What is your preference on dining chairs? Do you like them all to match or to mix it up?

Look for Less: YSL Tribute Patent Sandal

YSL designs some of the best classic shoes. The Tribute Sandal is one of those classic sandals that they bring back season after season, but it comes with a pretty large price tag at $795.

YSL Tribute Patent Sandal can have a very similar look for much, much less. This is a Vince Camuto sandal that is $98.

My Favorite Things

If I were Oprah rich and famous, these favorite things of mine would soon be yours. Unfortunately, I am not so you'll just have to receive the gift of me showing you some of my favorite things :)

Clarisonic Opal
I use this every single night and notice a difference (in a bad way) when I skip a few nights.

Kendra Scott Rhonda Earrings in Chalcedony
It is definitely no secret that I love Kendra Scott jewelry. You can find so many different styles in a large variety of color, which I love. Have I told you I love color?

Hudson Jeans - Beth
It is not because my middle name is also Beth; I just really love these jeans. I even have them in the cropped version.

Color Club Neon Nail Polish

I am obsessed with neon nail polish and have been since I was a child. In my opinion Color Club offers the best neon hues and options.

Zebra Cowhide Rug
Our zebra rug is one of my favorite decor items in our house; it is a great statement piece. I ordered it online, and there are so many different shops and vendors that offer cowhide rugs at great prices.

Trish McEvoy Irresistible Lip Gloss
I use this gloss daily; it is a really shear, glittery gloss. Yes, I "heard" about the gloss from Real Housewife of BH, Kyle Richards. Good thing I watch the Real Housewives on Bravo, or I would not have tried this gloss :)

Anthropologie Fairburn Necklace
I love, love, love this necklace. I honestly get so many compliments every time I wear it. I think the green may be sold out online but may still be available in some stores.
