The Perfect Mix

I have been keeping a notebook of ideas for each room in the house. Lately, Pinterest has made list making for these ideas so much easier! Here are some rooms that are, to me, the perfect mix!

Here is a gorgeous dining room. I love the cow hide rug layered over a larger, more simple one. I also love that striped settee!

I loved this office. I have been known to fall for over the top glam one minute and then over the top rustic the next, but this is the perfect mix. Perfect.

Another dining room with the perfect mix of an awesome rustic table and beautiful pink wallpaper.

Here is a great living room with an amazing sofa!

I am smitten with this window seat. I could nap there.

Hope these rooms bring you some inspiration too!

Living Room Brainstorming

December 22, 2011 at 10:07 am (Inspiration) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I’ve said it before, we hate our living room couch.  We have a small living room, but would like it to work better for us. So, what do we do when a friend is wanting to get rid of an almost new L shaped sectional in cream? Snatch it up!

It looks huge and things are in disarray right now, but it is so comfy, and much more what we were wanting for a more functional room.  A sectional seems more modern than our house, but this one combines my love for tufting too! So, now I have been on the hunt for living room inspiration before making any decisions about ours.  Enjoy my eclectic collection of musings…

I love the horse photo in this one. And, it’s a sectional.

This one is an L shaped couch and a smaller room like ours.

I love the gray of this couch. They are using a coffee table and the ottoman is separate for more seating.  We are considering doing away with our coffee table and using a large tray on the ottoman.  Hm?

Not a sectional, but I love a Chesterfield. Always inspiring. lol

I loved the patterned pillows in this living room.  I am also digging the idea of the wall mounted lamps.  We lack floor space and this might do the trick!

Another gray sectional, and I loved the mix of fun pillows!

Bright colors and a rustic coffee table.

Not exactly our style room, but I love the big coffee table and even the tweed on the couch!

Another room with no sectional, but how pretty!? I love everything about this one.

The next few rustic rooms are for Jeremy 😉

I love the mix in this room.  The more subtle antlers, and especially the tufted chair!!

This one has the Chesterfield for me and the antler chandelier for Jeremy!

Any more ideas? Let us know! And soon I will show you progress on our room!

The Wheels Are Spinning…

The wheels in my head are spinning, the ideas churning around.  I said before that I have some big projects in the works, and when I said big I actually meant HUGE.  Here is a bit of the funky inspiration that is going on right now.  Soon I will hopefully be able to let you all know what is going on around here!

I love the shape of this sofa and the bold pattern is growing on me.  Just wait until I can tell you why I am thinking about buying this baby!

Mid Century Bug

June 5, 2009 at 11:04 am (Inspiration) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I have it- the mid century bug- that is!  I am usually into vintage and antique just a bit older than MCM style, but lately I have been crazy for some of the furniture styles.  I’d like to think that I am a good enough stylist to incorporate a bit of many styles to make an eclectic, yet cohesive home.  A few things that I am loving:

The Marcel Bruer Wassily leather lounge chairs are calling my name!

This Barwa lounger would be so comfy on a patio or in the backyard, even better if it wasn’t purple!

This guy would be perfect painted black and sitting next to my new-old patio set in the backyard.  Then I would have a place to lounge in the sun!  (I am actually really thinking about this one!)

This is my all time favorite couch.  I want one someday so bad I can smell the leather!  😉

I love these Platner style outdoor chairs.  Actually, I like anything wire mesh or Bertoia-esque. 

An a bit of an older note- I am still on a hurried hunt for a couple of these old style metal lawn chairs.  Ebay is a bit too pricey, so if anyone out there knows of any for sale…keep me posted!

Any style, any color, as long as they are similar to eachother, because I am going to paint them red anyway!

Also, do you notice a trend with me and chairs?  And currently with me and outdoor furniture?  I really need to expand what I look at! 😉

Current Chair Love

February 20, 2009 at 10:44 am (Inspiration) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

This weeks chair love:

This guy is so ugly that its cute.  I think if it were reupholstered in a fun modern material, the shape could be really fun a a living room or even as a side seat in a large bedroom.  Maybe do away with the squiggly stitching?

This seat was found on Ebay and is described as a vintage retro mid century circle chair, love seat, or sofa.

I think it has strange potential…
