Design Ideas and Inspiration

I always feel very energized and full of inspiration and creativity during this time of year so today I thought I would share some of my recent pins and what I'm drawing inspiration from right now.

I pinned this photo for so many reasons.  love the warmth this space emits - the rich hue of the chocolate brown walls and the oatmeal colored linen roman shades.  There are so many textures and patterns in the room making it feel well lived in and layered.  The art resting on the floor is a nice complement to the laid back feel of the room.  I am considering roman shades for our bedroom and something like these would be perfect. 

Inspiration can always be drawn from the most unexpected places.  The interior of this European cafe was shared by blogger Sania Pell on her recent trip to Croatia.  I love the bundles of magazines tied together with twine.  I'm holding on to this idea for my studio make over.  It's a great way to keep my design magazines organized by year.

I've been pinning a lot of bathroom inspiration pics lately since we're in the planning stage of our guest bathroom remodel.  I love the look of taking subway tile up to the ceiling and those gold edged mirrors with shelves are so great.  I wonder where I can find one of those...

I've been working on creating a couple of mood boards and I'm always drawn to the contrast of a black background against all my favorite inspiration pics and clippings, it helps them to really stand out and have more of an impact.  It's always fun to look at other people's mood boards and see what kind of things people clip to help them get inspired and creative.   I'll be posting a project soon showing my current mood boards and how to create your own large scale mood board like this one without taking up precious wall space!
