Home Office Inspiration


Home Office Inspiration

Some times we all need a little inspiration – and for me, that couldn’t be more true. I’ve been feeling particularly unmotivated and I can’t really put my finger on why.  When the weather is beautiful all I want to do is be outside, so that’s understandable, but otherwise, I’m not sure where my malaise is coming from.
Hopefully you’re not in the same boat, but regardless I hope you enjoy these beautiful home offices!

Mixing wood and white


Mixing wood and white in your interior

Contrasting elements, like mixing wood and white, add a lot of visual interest to a space. I’ve gathered up some images of spaces that marry two of my favorite interior elements: white, and wood. I personally don’t think there’s anything more classic, crisp, and “home.”

Those floors are gorgeous!



The shelves are a great use of an otherwise hard-to-use wall adjoining a gabled ceiling.


Do you like white and wood?

Entryway inspiration: fabulous entries and hallways


Entryway inspiration and hallway eye candy

We just got a new console for entryway, which was much needed considering I was using a wonky collapsible thing I picked up off someone’s curb a few years ago. So now that our console is in place, I decided to find some inspiring ways to decorate and organize it.

I want our entry console to act as a mail sorting area and a place to keep my purse.

I think I’d like to have a small light on our console, like you see above.  If you put it on a timer so that it turns on right before you normally get home from work each day, it really makes your home feel welcoming!

white floors, black walls, a statement lighting fixture….I’m in love via Adore Home

I wish we had space for people to sit down and take off their shoes (we are a no-shoes apartment), but for now I’ll just have to keep it in mind for when I do have the space. I also like the large, dramatic piece of art at the end of the hall. It has a really dramatic effect.

Summer bathroom inspiration


Summer bathroom: Fresh and beautiful

In the winter, my bathroom is where I go to enjoy a long hot bath after being out in the cold. In the summer, the bathroom is where I go for a cool, refreshing shower after a hot sticky day.

To create a cool retreat, it helps to keep your summer bathroom as clutter free as possible.  Keep  reflective surfaces clean, as well as and lighting fixtures (Make sure they all have working bulbs, as well).  Since there are more hours of daylight in the summer, it is especially important to keep lighting bright and as close to outdoor light as possible.

Keep colors bright and cheery, or choose simple, crisp whites.


Update anything scented in your bathroom from spicy or musky to light scents, either floral or clean.  Heat activates scent, so you don’t want to overdo it.

White interiors: A beautiful and romantic loft


White Interiors: A loft tour

I had gotten off white for a while, but this gorgeous NYC loft reminds me why interiors in white will always be a favorite.

The bookcase is the first thing you see when walking in to the loft. It’s 12 ft. long and constructed of solid reclaimed wood.

Adore that large table.

What great windows! I’m so jealous!


dreamy. That rug must feel so good under foot when you wake up int the morning.
