Art Deco-Inspired Pastels
From the dreamy pastel pinks and purples into the Art Deco-inspired routine, this background at a 2LG Studio-designed living area is as lovely as it gets. We love the way the inky black painted fireplace speaks to the darkened framed art, both of which contrast with the candy background and even sweeter and intimate floral arrangement on the mantel.
