My inspiration is this photo from Chesapeake Home magazine.
See the centerpiece on the table in the above photo? (If you click on the photo, you get a slightly better image to view or you can visit their website linked above.) Well it motivated me to come home and immediately remove the ceramic pinecone finial from my studio and place it on our kitchen table.
It's the little things that mean a lot. I only wish the majority of my inspirations could come together so easily.
Having mentioned inspirations, have you had a chance yet to check out the latest entry on DC by Design's blog? Jennifer Sergent recapped Day 1 at the Washington Design Center's Capital Design Days. She touches on a discussion about trends and what's in and what's out. Kravet's Inspired Talk blog also shared their take on yesterday's event as well as Picture of Elegance on her blog. All perspectives are worth reading.
Have a great weekend and may it be filled with inspiration and good times.
