Let’s do this whole little inspired performance in reverse. Pretend you saw this yesterday, and yesterday’s post on Julia’s bedroom graphics today.
Our house is bound to look nothing like the beauties shown in these photos, and even if it does, it’s probably years down the road, but as we’ve both gathered dozens/hundreds of photos of inspired rooms over the past few years thanks to sites like Houzz and Pinterest, it’s worth peeking back through those files from time to time so we stay mindful of the path we want to choose for our home’s design and decor.
I pulled a few of my own favorites, ones that feature details like white walls and floor lamps, confined areas that are filled with color and pattern, a mix of old-old and new-new as it relates to furniture styles, shapes, and finishes, and colorful accents in art, upholstery, and decor. It’s kind of the inverted version of our last house, which had colorful walls and generally more neutral accents.
- let’s install some of those windows, shall we? great chairs too // via the brick house, original source unknown
- maybe not stripes, but I love the idea of a strong pattern in a small space, like our half bath or entryway // kelly green interiors, original source unknown
- mid-century shaped, mustard yellow chairs // apartment therapy (the whole house is an inspiration!)
- inspired kids room or workspace // aesthetic outburst
- whether we eventually invest in eames or not, another brightly colored chair in a great shape // desire to inspire, original source unknown
- MUR tiles make this streamlined space so homey // MUR
- The blue washed brick lends similarly to the blue stone flagstone in our living room, I love this space // fauxology, emily summers in conjunction with coleman coker
