Home Inspirations....

Photo from the home of Eleanor Grosch on Design Sponge. I just love the detail on this sideboard and the little house and the pom pom trim on the lamp. I might try that somewhere, it's so cute!

From Heather Frazier's place on Design Sponge. I love her space for the use of light and colour. I personally wouldn't use so many pale gelato colours, but I admire what she has done and the coloured glass collection is to die for! I'm also aiming for the same lightness and brightness in our place by painting all the doors and skirtings in crisp white. I'm also in love with those curtains, have been since I saw similar in Home beautiful a while back. I have chosen this picture as inspiration for our place because we have a fireplace which is in a main thoroughfare, so somehow I want to create a cozy place to sit while not getting in the way of the flow of the house. I'm thinking some small armchairs on either side of the fireplace.

John Murphy's place from Design Sponge. I love the plant on the window sill and the lived in look of the thrifted peices.

This image is for colour inspiration. A little while ago I bought a cushion which is designed by an Indigenous Australian artist. It has some of these terracotta orange tones in it and I want to match it with some blues and other orange things I have. Photo is from the home of illustrator Sanna Annukka and Jasper Goodall and found on Design Sponge. Take a peak at the rest of their home it's very interesting!

oooh, I can see why that pale green fireplace room is such an inspiration. You're s right about the crisp white door/window frames. And I am besotted with that shelf built around the fireplace! How fun it must be to be designing your own space. I can't wait till we have our own home... one day.
