WHAT INSPIRES YOU?

I told you you that I'm inspired by almost anything. Well here's another example of how easy it is for me to think up a space.


Take this image above. I walked into IKEA and that was the display. Whats so special about it? Nothing really. But the colors of the throw pillows sent my mind into a frenzy!

Here's the thing, I'm starting to pull together things for Bren and Nicks room and I already know that cars will included somewhere.


So when I saw the pillows together on the bed in IKEA, I immediately thought up the color scheme for the room: White, black, red, and yellow!



This image only confirmed my color scheme! So, here's what I'm thinking: White walls, chalkboard paint, stripes and chevron, red dresser, and pops of yellow! I can't wait to start on this room! I know it's gonna be a fun project!

So, what inspires you? Are you easily inspired?

This room is going to be great! I am inspired by everything, too - particularly nature and unexpected color combinations. It's great that you can be inspired by something and then make it your own.

Oh, another boy's room! Fun and love the colors. Inspiration, it is really everywhere. On a bike ride yesterday I noticed some rocks in a stream were covered with moss the most brilliant shade of green, it was beautiful!

Just about anything, or nothing at all (fortunately, the first option is true most of the time). I love primary colors with white!

Everything inspires me: a new magazine or catalog, a new pillow, a trip to Target or IKEA, other blogs, a new makeup palette...is the lack of money that's stopping me from realizing my home decor dreams. DARN MONEY!

Visual merchadising really inspires me, and also good styling, evcen food styling! The colours and textures just get me everytime!

Anything from certain colors together to getting a new catalog in the mail and looking though it - but most of all art.

Isnt it nuts when the simplest thing can send our minds into design craziness? Happens to me all the time too :)

Same here, the strangest things and my wheels start turning and mind starts spinning,,, usually out of control. I'm glad you're doing Cars, as much as I love the stuff I showed you yesterday my kids want cars, cars, cars.

I have an alternate file of what they want and now I'm stuck trying to figure out how I can make it look like something I want ... that's actually what I was going to ask you about :)

Maybe you'll get a few ideas and I know I will too.

Oh HECK yeah IKEA is inspiring! I swear they hang some $15 bowls on the wall or some bottle of water and it always look good. Never understand people's qualms.
