Inspiration Pictures

Well I thought I would share the pics I have saved in my 'Inspirational House Pics' Folder, or a few of them anyway...and give an explaination as to why I love them. Now, embarassingly, I downloaded them long before I ever dreamed of having my own blog, and I haven't got the links back to any of them. If you know where they came from, please let me know!

I love stripes, green, pink and coloured, painted furniture. The sofas are a great shape, and I also love the wood panelled walls.

I think this colour scheme is beautful, and the main house colour is top of my list when we paint our house,

Chartruse green...again!...and pinky-red, with plenty of white and vintage all together! I adore the phone, and the hit of modern with the Teknobili side table. The light is pretty special!

The eclectic mix here, the lovely tones and the stunning bedhead all get me with this one.

This image is much more grand...and well beyond the style that this home will ever be, but the shape of teh chair, and the combo of chocolate wood and white drew me in!
Now, the people have just arrived to install our shutters, so I better go and supervise!


  1. I absolutely am loving that basket on the front door. I'd be too scared someone would steal it from my house - but I love the idea. :-)

  2. Its a gorgeous idea, isn't it, but I agree with you...not sure how long it would last on the front door! Maybe the back door would be a better option!

  3. I need that first and the last photo in my house!!!! Love them!
