Inspire Me

Here are a few images that have me going back and back again so I thought I would share just in case you missed them...

This gorgeous table set for Easter makes me want to make Easter dinner more of an event for the kiddos. My husband is a pastor so we don't get to see him Easter weekend so it's just me and the kiddos. I want to make sure I still make it special though. I also would not mind having that light fixture, GORGEOUS!

This lakeside retreat has me swooning. What can I say all the white leaves it looking fresh, the cowhide stool is calling my name, the subway tile is a favorite of mine, and that lamp, wow.


Loving this cabinet. The coral inside makes me want to break out my paint brushes. Of course the fabulous wallpaper behind makes it all the better.


I always love seeing snippets of Jennifer's home. She's always changing things around and is a continual inspiration. Our sideboards are even painted the same color. I kindly asked her if she would mind coming over and doing my entry table. I am in desperate need of a new eye. I think she thought I was joking.


It seems in this market we will be calling our house home for quite some time so of course I want to make it the best it can be. Our garden has my full attention for now. This shed makeover has my wheels turning. Isn't it darling? No, we don't have a shed, but we could right?

Love all of the images! Would love a shed as well, but for more of a play room/retreat rather than for the lawnmower. Thanks for providing links - just discovered some great blogs.

I am so happy have been sharing some of your backyard inspiration. We need to try to start something with our landscape and I find it very intimidating! That shed is beautiful.
Thanks!

Marija said...

Amazing. Totally inspiring. I think I will shamelessly be copying that shed...

Love all of these. Jennifer does have a fabulous eye! Truth be told I am dreaming of that shed most of all!

Blueprint Bliss said...

Love all of these. And I'm with you- I love the photos of Jennifer's house. I think I need her to come over and style my house for me!

Jennifer said...

you are so funny. I didn't think you were joking, I just don't think you need me :) you see the extent of my knowledge: stack of books and pitcher of flowers. now that the flowers are gone it's a bowl full of mail/invitations/cards/mess!

I wasn't kidding about that progressive dinner, either!

and Kelly's shed had me swooning, too. you could just paint a prefab one from Lowe's! some of them aren't so terrible.

Erin from Skoots and Cuddles said...

the dining room is absolutely perfect. i've tucked the image away for future inspiration.

i like how the chairs are positioned in front of the fireplace. we have this massive brick wall mantel and i am struggling with how to set up our seating area.

Yes, you definitely could have a shed :).
