Sunny with Patches of Blue Sky

This happy room, published by Martha Stewart Magazine, has me falling for yellow all over again. The muted coral throughout the space is the perfect shade to prevent a sunny palette from going too high key. The whole feeling is also kept cool with lots of white and splashes of blue, black and green.  I love the easy eclecticism; like the Louis XV chair beside white lacquered nesting tables. Notice all the cheap chic details. Those are IKEA bookcases! She added radiator grills to the insides of the glass doors. (Home Depot and IKEA--doesn't get any cheaper than that!) Clever girl. 

The wainscotting is actually balustrade. The lampshade detail--an easy DIY project.

The graphic orange trays, sitting on folding cots, are another DYI. Check it out here.

Here are few things I found to get you in a Sunkist mood for Spring!
Coat ($99! Seriously!, J. Crew); bag, Marc Jacobs, (Matches); shoes, Christian Louboutin ($732, Blue Fly); dress, Max Mara (Matches); 
umbrella, Manolo Blahnik for Liberty UK
