Interiors I’m Inspired by Recently

I love all the color in this photo. And I like that it would be hard to put a label on this style. The painting looks vintage and the patterns on the blanket look modern and the side table is cute but in a plain ugly sort of way. I love the whole thing.

This photo but especially Sara Hicks Malone’s whole house tour on Decor8 is pretty much perfect. It feels modern but so colorful and cozy. Very inspiring.

This wallpaper and color combination from Lonny is so great. I love the pattern on the rug and on the wallpaper and all the pops of color, everything works so well.

This entryway is from a Design Sponge Sneak Peek. I love the color of the wallpaper with the simple black dresser and the pop of the yellow lamp. Also, everything that is going on with the mirror and blue lamp is a good thing.

Sponsored Post: Fawn & Forest

This is the most beautiful rocker in the whole world. Jenny sent it last year as one of many options when she was helping me set up a corner of my bedroom like a little nursery. I knew I wouldn’t be able to breastfeed Roman but I still wanted a cozy little space where I could feed him. At first I didn’t even consider this rocker because it was out of my price range but I was able to arrange a trade with the lovely Fawn & Forest so that I could purchase it. I love the lines on it and the skirt and it is a super cozy and comfy rocker. It was perfect for our city apartment because it has a smaller footprint than most rockers. And now we keep it in the living room as glam lazyboy. They didn’t have this rocker at the time but I’m kind of in love with it too.

I love Fawn & Forest for lots of reasons but mostly because I think they have the best selection of kids gear of anyone. Plus I love that it is run by a small family like mine (Seriously, they’re my age.).

Inspired by Inspiration Boards

I love this round up of inspiration boards as art from Canadian House and Home. I like the idea of using them as art in part of your home. On a related note: I want that settee.

WPA Posters

Have you heard of WPA posters they are beautifully designed and would be cute in a kids room. There’s a pretty great collection from the Library of Congress you can find here.

Beautiful Blankets

I stumbled upon this site, where your heart is, and suddenly felt a strong desire to learn how to crochet. It’s crazy how putting the right colors together makes something you might normally overlook suddenly amazing. The zig zag blanket is awesome!
