Have you seen the movie "Rio" yet?  If you don't have kids, you probably haven't...but, I recommend you do anyway.  It is hilarious, has a great cast and soundtrack.  Oh, and the movie is beyond adorable.

Anyhoo, where I am going with this? COLOR!  I am not taking about some pastel, or splashes of color.  I am taking about the bright, bold, beautiful, saturated colors you can find everywhere in Rio de Janeiro. You know, like a rainbow or bag of skittles exploded or something. As I was watching the movie with my boys (and laughing my face really is funny), I was in awe by all the bright colors and it immediately made me want to be Rio, during Carnival. How fabulous would that be?!  Boo-ya.

In honor of this adorable movie, and all the fantastic color that Carnival {and Rio} is so famous for, I was totally inspired by these bright and bold interiors.  I hope you have a great Wednesday! XoX


Wow.  So modern, yet fun.

Hello my dream Pink Palace.

Love the bright bed and simplicity of the room.

Fabulous outdoor space.


I am usually not a huge fan of Orange, but this is done just right.

I LOVE this room.

One of my favorites.

These are so cheery. Love the colors. Regarding the movie-did it have any parts that might be scary for a little one? Last summer I tried taking S to go see a kids movie, and it was too much for him. I had to leave after 15 minutes because he was begging to leave.

Wowzers! That 'pink palace' is sure somethin- not sure if I'd EVER be that bold ;)

My fav is the green with splashes of yellow and white room!
