I know that a couple of people out there are doing "inspiration Fridays", which is for the purpose of posting pictures of something that is a decorating inspiration to you. I have some shots from a couple of lovely new books that I got ("The French-Inspired Home", and "Where Women Create"). And there are shots from wonderful "Country Homes and Interiors - British Edition").
This laundry room is wonderful. It is in "The French-Inspired Home".
Within the same book as above, these wonderful labels are in the back pages (along with many others). You can scan them and print them out to use in your own home. I love the colors in these labels.
I thought this place setting was so cute with the little nest and bird - makes me want to be more creative with my tablescapes.
I really like these colors and thought that using an edging like the one pictured would be great on a mantle or shelf. So pretty.
Sorry for the darkness of this picture, bad lighting when I was taking it. This space is so wonderful. I especially love the cozy pillows on the floor by the cabinet. Also love the dressmakers form, the cabinet, desk, slip-covered chair. It's all so good.
I think this display is so pretty. The colors, the jars - yum. And I really like the little string of letters that tell you what is in the jar. You could do a display like this and change out the colors whenever you feel like it - make it monochromatic, differing colors, whatever strikes you.
So, that's a few of the things that inspire me decoratively. There are so many though - so much good stuff out there. Have a wonderful Friday!
