Some inspiration, newly added to my home folder:
These first three photos are from the portfolio of Faith Blakeney, an interior designer I found by way of Old Brand New. In the top one I love all the white with splashes of pattern and color. And the second photo looks like a perfect place to curl up with a book on a summer afternoon. The last photo of the kitchen is charming as can be, but I like it because it reminds me that not-so-perfect kitchens can be cute with the right touch. My husband and I recently decided to put our kitchen renovation plans on hold indefinitely, and in the meantime we’re painting, pulling up vinyl, and dreaming up wall paint colors. Make do with what you’ve got!
This photo is from Chrissy Poitras and Kyle Topping’s home, as featured on Design*Sponge (photographed by Evan Nash). I love the mix of patterns and casual, lived-in-but-neat feel. Below is another photo from their home (oh to have old wallpaper that just happens to be beautiful). My husband is anti-wallpaper, but I’m working on him. I love the white floor, too.
This next photo is sort of a wild card, I suppose, in that it’s full of furniture and other things I’d probably never buy, but I wish I would! Found on The Selby, Alexandre Herchcovitch’s home has a whimsical sense of humor and great colors.
