Design Sponge Inspiration

Friday, February 3, 2012

I spotted the first bloom in the tops of the trees at the end of the driveway today. It's hard to believe that it's almost Spring! This is the time of year that I get the itch to change things around a bit in the house......take on a few projects, add a few things.

While I would love to add a few new textiles, rugs and blankets, or frame some oversized photographs, most of my current projects will be more thrifty. For multiple reasons my decorating almost always involves DIY. Some of my favorite pieces in the house are ultra affordable homemade creations. (here and here)

Browsing through Sneak Peeks on Design Sponge always inspires! I thought I would share some of my favorite shots from my last look through. I can say with certainty I need to add some more plants inside! Well placed plants change everything! I'm also planning to recover some pillows with bright pops of color and maybe some interesting prints.

What I am most excited about, inspired from one of the shots above is a painted trophy collection! I'm not sure why they are making me so happy, but they are. When I was young I proudly displayed all my trophies in my room, dorky I know. My mom still has them all stashed away somewhere......I think it would be so fun to spray them all glossy white and display them in a collection, on a shelf or tray of some sort. Kind of hilarious and amazing!

Any house projects of your own? Am I crazy to love the trophies? I would love to hear what you think and let me know if you have a great site for inspiration!

I have to be honest, I don't love the trophies, but I really love the "minimal chic meets chalet style" in the second picture!!

I have to admit, I'm having second thoughts myself! Mr. Duncan didn't seem all that enthusiastic. Thanks for the input ladies and hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
