Things that Strike my Fancy..

Here are some items and designs that serve as inspiration for a lot of my decorating ideas and dreams. Hopefully some of these may serve as positive inspiration for you as well. Enjoy.

Who says a stunning dining room table has to be long and rectangle? I love the character in this room and really like the mismatched furniture. I think the simplicity pulls all of the different items nicely together.

The ways to incorporate nature indoors are endless. I like this fun nature idea that can work for any dining room table.

I have always been a huge fan of white cabinets and green kitchens. I like the fun way that this picture includes both. The light lime interior of the cabinets serves as a hidden splash of color in this simple, well put together, kitchen.

I love, love, LOVE a couch where no two throw pillows are alike. This simple wall color, and white couch, goes great with the frame and fabric choices in this lovely room.

I enjoy this office space decor. The choice of light blue, white and black are an interesting, yet fabulous choice. A work space like this makes heading to work a little less dreadful.

I can't get enough of decorations and plants that are vibrant greens. I love flowers, however, I really enjoy a mixture and feel that they are not always needed. I like how this simple table really makes a statement in the room.

I like to choose a single room in my home and make it bright, cheerful and all around warm. I am a firm believer that rooms, such as your master bedroom and bathroom, should be tranquil and a living room or dining room can be bright.

This is a new favorite of mine. I think if you decide to decorate a wall in stripes you have to be careful to not over do it and aim for simplicity. I love this picture because the pretty teal mirror adds just the right splash of color.

Speaking of tranquil, how more intimate and relaxing can you get than a gorgeous chandelier over a soaking tub. I love this.

I enjoy the idea of painting thrifty chairs a fun color and covering them with a pretty fabric. This works on any kind of chair, whether for a kitchen, dining room or living room.

I hope everyone's manic Monday comes to a peaceful and relaxing end.
