Inspired in October
October 14, 2010
Sunday mornings I get up early before church, make a big pot of coffee, and go blog hopping, often visiting sites that I haven’t had time to visit during the week, or blogs that are new to me. It’s my own ‘choose your own adventure’ excursion, and I just let links take me boldly where I’ve never been before.
Often I stumble upon the most delightful images that inspire me to remodel, revamp, rethink, or just simply dream. Here are some of the images I’ve savored in the last month, with corresponding random thoughts:
Someday soon I shall rent a buff floor sander to remove the varnish on my natural oak floors so that I can stain them darker so they look just like this.

If only my pantry looked like this and not the exact opposite.
It’s official. My office needs a credenza and an inspiration board above it. Sofa, you shall be moved to the living room.
Sometimes I wonder what color I should paint something. When in doubt, I shall paint it primer gray. Not to dark, not to light. Just right.
It wasn’t a dream! My fantasy dining room actually exists.
These bookcases have me rethinking my first inclination to paint everything white.
As does Celerie Kemble’s dressing room. *sigh*
What can I say about this space beyond the gray velvet, sparkling silver, and deep blue gloss, other than it is just so me.

I have found two kitchen backsplashes that I would choose over the standard white brick pattern tile.
I would die to soak in this tub and gaze at the perfection that is floor to ceiling spa blue glass tile. My only hesitation with free standing soaking tubs like this one is where oh where to set my glass of bubbly.

I am now convinced that a loggia may be the key to pure bliss.
Remember how I mentioned the other day that we should all be preparing for the holidays? Someone needs to start making paper chains and stringing marshmallows right now, and I mean today to be ready for Christmas so your house can look like these windows from Anthropologie. Volunteers?
That’s all for today, thanks for reading. Anything design related inspiring you this month? No doubt, you save images in your inspiration files too! What’s your latest fixation?
