Icy Pastels

With Mothers day this weekend, we felt that pastels were a good choice...or basically we just felt like looking at icy pastels. Mothers day dresses and flowers are so pretty in these colors.  Gardens are a wash with these soft colors and of course apple, cheery and magnolia trees are blooming, tulips and so soon to be peony's. There is just something so soft and tranquill about decorating in these icy tones. There is a coolness to the rooms but with a soft edge. We hope everyone has a wonderful mothers day!
