So I haven’t blogged in a while. But I’m still around, I’m still here! And its actually because I’ve been working more! You may remember I took last year to kind of decide where I was headed with this design business thing. I took a class that led to all sorts of inspiration. I was doing lots of small consults, one room at a time kind of work.
This year I find myself with two big full house projects happening at once and a couple more waiting in the wings. They are both with dream clients and I’m learning so much as I work, pushing my boundaries further and further into areas that have intimidated me in the past. I’m loving it and finding the courage that I can do this.
The community of support I found in taking that class has really helped, along with a few more connections I’ve made since then. I think I felt isolated a lot last year, wondering if I was actually doing this thing the right way. Its nice to have community. Plus, Paul is my constant encouragement and support- he has always believed in me and never once doubted even when I’m doubting myself. Its amazing to have support like that.
Anyway, that’s enough for now about where I’ve been. I thought I’d share today a bit of what’s inspiring me lately for these projects…
First up this beautiful shot of a project by Marie Flanigan Interiors. I love the contrast of light and dark. All the different textures, wood tones, subtle pattern. Its modern and traditional at the same time.
Next, are you familiar with Addison’s Wonderland? She has an incredibly unique older home that they renovated and it is just bursting with pattern and color. I love how she uses white walls to balance her love of color. I also love all the brass and the black vent hood and ceiling in the living room picture below.
This kitchen is majorly inspiring me for a project I’m working on. Especially that deep green cabinetry. Green is the thing right now and Studio McGee does it right in this gorgeous kitchen. I also love all the mixed metals and warm wood tones.
Here’s another beautiful use of a deep green in this bedroom from Traditional Home.
And lastly, if you follow my Instagram stories, you saw that my old kitchen faucet broke last week. We’ve replaced it temporarily with a $17 one from Home Depot while I research and figure out what the permanent solution will be. Meanwhile I’m all eyes for the art in this kitchen from Domino. And you know I’m talking about that faucet:
So that’s what’s up for now. Follow me on Pinterest if you’d like to see more of the inspiration for these projects!
