There was snow on the weekend yet it's sunny today, making this Monday feel like spring. Should I be thanking global warming? Probably not. But the one positive of this odd weather is that it makes me think about spring decorating. I have already picked out my warm weather palette. And no pale blue is involved this time. In fact, I'm more into a mix of petal pink with neutrals. And trust me, I have never been a pink girl. But these inspirational shots won me over.

Spring blossoms from flowering trees will get the creative juices flowing every time.

I love the small hits of petal pink in this living room. Maybe this is how a non-girly-girl can be swung to the pink side, by keeping it subtle.

Now this is more my style, the petal pink on the wall. I'm assuming it's a combination of lighting and wall colour that gives the room that pretty sundowner glow. But the odd mix of old gritty objects and beaten up floorboards keeps this pink from being too sweet. This is the one.

So now onto my new favourite colour palette blog Design Seeds to find a fully put-together palette.

Trust me, if you love looking for paint colour inspiration, this blog will be your new guilty pleasure — guilty only by how much time you will spend searching her palettes.

How about you? Which palettes are getting you excited for spring?
