interior design inspiration

Log Home Living

When I see a photo like this I don’t think oh look at the sofa or what a cute coffee table…. I think: wow look at all that wood and texture and how the beams form their own design all the way up to the ceiling…. and look at that natural light coming in through those amazing windows!

Neutral and natural is the best way to show off texture! You know you have a great design when the furniture takes the back seat to the architectural features. Furniture serves a purpose but its the architectural features that invite us in. Can’t do a lot…then just do a little!

I say let that $8,000 sofa go and spend your money on as many architectural elements that you can! A $2,000 sofa will be just as comfortable and look at the view you will gain!

Re purpose, reclaim, re salvage…

Flea Market Home Decor Inspiration

OK, so I just have to share….  My friend sent me this pic of the gallery wall she did with all of her finds, treasures, and memories! The cool vintage furniture, the accessories, the rugs,..everything. Now if that’s not some serious flea market, junking, thrift store scoring, treasure hunting inspiration I don’t know what is! That’s Mollie Mae on the sofa and Vixey on the floor, her prize possessions… they were found and rescued too!!

She is an expert thrift-er and you can follow her on Instagram, she always has fun things for sale!  @thethriftydarlin

So all my DIY friends…If you want to create your own gallery wall just do it! Don’t try to lay everything out and match each side or make a template…. just start hanging! A gallery wall should be as unique as you are! Mix it up with memories, mementos and all your fabulous finds! If you only have a few items hang them up and then start searching, you will fill your wall up in no time! See you at the next flea market!

Happy Hunting!!

Modern Farmhouse or Farmhouse Modern?

Yes, I am obsessed with wood beams and their beauty. I also like my modern farmhouse with a little less modern but there is a fine line with doing farmhouse style to keep it current. This brings me to my texture rule….  Too much wood and texture seems outdated. But just add a touch of modern and you can pull it off. balance to pull it off. In this case obviously the wood features take center stage and the accessories pull off the balance factor. This is the perfect style if you like a rustic feel without a lot of clutter.
