AN INSPIRED HOME

 

Below are some images that are in my inspiration folder that I love. If you read my blog often, you know that I am not one to post a series of inspiration photo posts everyday. They have to serve a greater purpose for me, and these images do. When I decide to work on a space, I always go to my favorite photos to inspire, or a beautiful table book, and old/new magazines.

Make it work in your space. Don’t feel defeated because your space does not look like the photos you see. But feel victorious over how you turn someone else’s creation, into something you created for your home. When you think of a home. What are your thoughts? When you walk into someone’s home. What is it about their home that captures your attention, or even when you look at blogs, and magazines?

OH MY! So as I start to look at the pictures I'm counting my favorites, # 2, # 4, then I'm like wait I like them all! Such modern and peaceful spaces. I hate that I'm such a procrastinator, I have great ideas but I'm not such a DIY gal!

That brown foyer gets me every time. I think I respond most to interesting color combinations and pretty patterns.

I don't like rooms that look like showrooms. I like homes with personal touches and one of a kind features.

I am loving seeing the drapes from the ceiling to the floor. I am working towards that in my living and dining room.

Beautiful pictures!!! When I think of home, I think of relaxed. When I walk in, I want to feel like I walked into peace... what attracts me about another's home is the warmness. I want to feel welcome when I enter.
