I took some outfit pics the other day, but the cable that I use for transferring pictures to the computer decided to stop working. So now they’re stuck on the camera until the replacement cable I ordered shows up :(
While I’m waiting though, I thought I’d share some images that have been inspiring me as our kitchen renovation gets closer and closer to completion.
Light neutral tones punctuated by soft pops of color... wood surfaces and natural earthy elements accented by an eclectic mix of vintage finds… I think that pretty well describes what I’m drawn to when it comes to kitchen décor, probably home décor in general as a matter of fact :)
Skipping through the blogosphere over recent months, I’ve noticed lots of posts about home decorating and renovation, even from bloggers who don’t regularly post on the topics.
There must be some sort of nesting bug going around or maybe I‘ve just been noticing these posts more because I‘ve been busy collecting inspiration (and some thrift finds too!) for my own home.
I probably spend almost as much time collecting home décor inspiration as I do fashion inspiration and I’d like to dedicate a good amount of time this Fall and Winter to getting our house in order they way I‘d like it to be.
We moved in just two weeks before Clover was born and then there was a new baby to focus on and funnily enough toddlers require a lot of focus too, and well, coming up quickly on two years later... let’s just say there is still plenty to be done before the ideas in my head of what I’d like my home to look like are fully realized. On that note, perhaps there will be more of these types of posts in the future!
The inspiration images that I post may or may not contain vintage or thrifted items, though I tend to be drawn to an eclectic flea market-style aesthetic so it’s probable that many of them do. My point being that I mostly like to post them because the images that inspire me and swirl around in my head (both consciously and subconsciously) are largely what guide my thrift eye.
In fact, just the other day I found the cutest vintage breadbox that would fit seamlessly into most of the above pictures. I’m planning to do a home finds post once I get the camera thing sorted out, so stay tuned for that, which will of course include the unveiling of my new breadbox!
