This inviting space is full of feminine details from the floral wallpaper and plate collection to the pink framed chalkboard and baby blue fridge. Complementing all of these light touches are the cord hung pendants in a soft mint color which really pops amidst all the pink and blue.Read More
You probably don’t need a climatologist to tell you that 2012 was one steamy year in the United States, but it’s official — 2012 was the hottest year on record for the lower 48 according to NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center.
