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.

    I adore that bright pop of poppy red! What a fun color combination too!

    OOOOOOOOOh! I love that dark library with the leather? Chest. Doesn’t look practical for reading-kinda dark but oh so cozy.

    Wow! You should totally do a book with your drawings, maybe a colouring one! Or, how about a free downloadable pdf for your faithful longtime readers? ;-)

    I can see why you found inspiration in the above, they each have their own charm and distinct design, particularly the vintage rug (but don’t all vintage rugs ;)

    We’ve had a few like that in our shop in the past but they always sell out quickly.
    Nice inspo Nicole!
