Candy Colors

One of the trends for Spring that I’m totally loving is the abundance of soft, candy colored pastel hues. It was all over the Spring Fashion Week runways and I can’t wait to rock my pastels now that the weather is getting warmer. When it comes to your home, consider infusing some of these soft shades into your decor. Below is some inspiration for how to achieve this look, plus some of our favorite pastel picks for your home!

These little red phone booths are so charming!

Style Stalking - So Haute - Taylor Tomasi-Hill (5)

Looks like style star Taylor Tomasi-Hill has moved into a fabulous new apartment! (See our previous feature on her old home here.) The former fashion editor-turned artistic director for Moda Operandi recently gave a peek inside her new apartment which is a bright, loft-like space with an industrial-chic vibe and eccentric touches that mirror her quirky fashion choices. I’m especially loving the Rorschach inkblot-inspired wallpaper from Eskayel shown in the photo above.  See more of Taylor’s style at home below and you can see the full photo slideshow here on!
