Drawing Inspiration | Making it Lovely

I’ve been drawing inspiration lately. Literally. Maybe a little painting, too.

Here, I was drawn to the color combination in the first image, the masculine detailing of the furniture in the second photo, and the pattern and detail of the antique rug in the third.

Oh, Hey. It’s National Pink Day!

Did you know that June 23rd is National Pink Day? It’s OK, I didn’t either. Apparently you can celebrate by doing things like…

  • going to a restaurant or shop with pink interiors

  • having your hair dyed pink

  • eating pink meals

OK. Will do? Or maybe I’ll just look at pretty pretty pink things and wish we had a pink sofa instead of a blue one. (I’ll admit it. I love ours, but I’m also wishing I could swap right now.)

Let’s Decorate with Floral Bedding

It’s been a while since I put together one of these “Let’s…” posts. They’ve always been fun, but I’m especially excited about this one because I’ve expanded on the concept! Will you let me know if you like the change in the comments?

OK, onward. For this edition, we’re going to design a bedroom around floral bedding. This new design kicked off the idea, but there are a few other floral patterns out there that I love and wanted to bring in for the post.

Floral Bedding

Which bed, bedding, and bench would you put together in a room from the choices below? I’ll share my choices with you, after the jump. Here’s the added portion though — normally I would simply show you the three items I’d pick, but this time I’ve taken those three and continued the idea, actually pulling in the elements for an entire room.

Ready? And… go!
