Bachelor Inspiration

I've spent the last 3 hours watching the final episode of The Bachelor.  Ok, I admit to being a real sap, having watched the show since it's inception.  No matter how annoyed I've been with Vienna all season, how can you deny the romance of a proposal in St. Lucia !

So I sit here, totally engrossed in this fantasy setting and watch the
Cinderella story unfold. 

After wiping the tear (only one) from my eye, I realized that I was really looking at the color of the sky as it meets the ocean, and wondering what Sherwin Williams color it was.

...and how it might look in a bedroom

or a kitchen

Of course, the ocean isn't the only inspiration in St. Lucia.  Remember the glorious waterfall from last week's episode?

 I love the rusty orange shades in the rocks set off by the rich brown, grays and creamy whites.

Here's the suites where Jake stayed in St. Lucia.....nice.

Some view !
I'm inspired by the natural elements and the lush landscape.

Stone should not be relegated to exteriors only.  How restful is this stone sitting room.  It's a beautiful backdrop to the soft neutrals of the furniture.

Natural elements aren't only about creating restful spaces.  This verdent green can energize a space like nothing else.

There's that pop of orange again....gotta love it!

As the sun sets over the island and this season of The Bachelor,
I'm going to dream about the shades of lavender and pink that remind me that it's Alli's turn next....the new Bachelorette.
Surely, she likes pink......
