So, admittedly, I have gotten a little carried away searching out interesting blogs and scrolling through images looking for something that catches my eye. Early last year I started a file of images that I labeled "Decorating Inspiration." As I was looking through it today, I was actually starting to get an idea of what my style really is. There are some very common themes. Take a look and see what I mean.
It just looks like out kitchen, the colors and cheeriness strike me in a happy way.what I really love and it is barely pictured here, is the hood above the range. Good idea for our kitchen renovation. Hint to the mister.
My good friend, Bekah, sent this image to me and claimed she thoguht of me the moment she saw it. I, of course, love it and want to make a couple for our bathroom. I like the ruggedness and warmth of the wool stems. I think i ties in well with the following image for the same reasons.
I seem to also be drawn to things that I or my very creative husband could make ourselves. Creating your own furniture of art is so rewarding. Stephen made our coffee table and I love it. It has a similar feel to that bed.
Here we go again with the rugged kind of industrial feel. But I am not a lover of all things modern, just things that have cleaner, uncomplicated lines.
These stools are more for Stephen than for me. He could totally make this and it would be the talk of all our guests, for sure.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the fireplace mantel and want one desperately above our fireplace. Another hint to the mister.
So I guess the things that I can see represented in all these images are simple lines, playfulness, warmth without being cluttery, and a combination of rugged and industrial.
