In France, I snuck in some photos of the local furniture store. This was in a mall, so not 'HIGH END' by any means - but definitely inspiring. I loved the lights and the splashes of bight colors against the gray furniture.
|Notice how low the furniture is to the ground? I probably wouldn't put lime green in my house, but I think it looks modern and fresh here.|
|Funky yet elegant. I wish I would have gotten a better photo of the light fixtures. It's plastic, but gorgeous and radiates a soft glow against the modern lines of the table and chairs.|
|Doesn't this look like something from IKEA? I'm not a fan of this one. I think it looks cheap - but I do like the color combo.|
|IKEA - esque. Playful and inviting.|
|Simple lines. I like the light gray - you could do anything with those couches. |
|The unique shape makes your typical Japanese lantern more interesting.|
|See the cool lamp shades (hot pink/turquoise)? I was dying to buy the multi colored one, but it doesn't go with anything and I wasn't going to carry a lamp shade around all day. I still love it though.|
|This hanging lantern inn called 'The Moon' and looked very realistic.|

|These paper mache'/origami domes are gorgeous and I saw these in several restaurants and boutiques. CRAFT IDEA!!!|
Would you paint a wall lime green or turquoise in your home? I'm liking the idea of a gray couch....it would go with anything. What do you think?
