Mouth Watering...

After a yummy conversation I had yesterday regarding DARK CHOCOLATE, I came across a room that reminded me of my current craving. This inspired me to find more designs that resemble desserts, during which I had the urge to eat my computer screen! Hope you enjoy!

My Best Friend: Dark Chocolate!

How does this room remind me of a dark chocolate bar? The chocolate squares resembles the artwork and windows, the metallic foil resembles the artwork, and not to mention the color of the walls and chocolate bar are an exact match!

If Life Gives You Lemons...Make a Lemon Meringue Pie!

Place a lemon in a drink, garnish a dish, or display in your kitchen and you have a nice punch of color. That is exactly what the yellow did for this room. The meringue balances the taste of the pie, as does the sofa, rug, and moldings in the room, all of which are similar in color. The brown portion of the meringue reminds me of the fireplace surround with similar colors and texture.

Red Velvet Trellis!

If there was ever a cake and a foyer that were meant to be together, these are the ones! The actual cake itself mirrors the floor in the room, the white frosting resembles the walls, and the red decoration topping the cake is a dead ringer for the imperial trellis wall covering!

Criss Cross Brownie Sauce!

All I have to say is look at the color and pattern in the stunning hall and the mmm mmm brownies!!

I'm Nuts About This Kitchen!

This kitchen design and the cacao pistachio florentine and mint ice cream sandwich (my goodness that's a mouthful- literally!) are a match made in heaven. Modern design meets modern dessert.

DELISH!!! Now I am in the mood for some good DD (Dessert & Design)!
