Inspiration for my Renovation

Hello! In my Manic Monday post yesterday I mentioned that I was saving the images from last week that inspired me for my own renovation (that we will be undertaking one of these days!) to share today. Until the renovation starts and materials are ordered I continue to look at ways to enhance my design.

These are the ideas that caught my eye!

The first is these love seats from Two Sisters Ecotextiles. They have a very similar shape to the matching love seats my parents gave me years ago. I am planning to use the loveseats in my master bedroom and have not yet finalized the fabric and "look" with the upholsterer and this picture will really help in that discussion.

I love the look of this banquette designed by Bria Hammel Interiors. The open space below the bench rather than cabinets or paneling, which often seems the norm, is refreshing. Something to think about with my kitchen bench.....

I already have so many pictures saved searching for the ideal cabinet color for my kitchen and cannot seem to stop. If you asked John he would say they are all the same! I will probably have an encyclopedia of choices by the time I need to decide on the color, I know they will all help me in the end though! This is a deVol kitchen.

Here is another deVol kitchen that I saved because of the clothes drying rack hanging from the ceiling. It is extremely similar to the one I am planning on using in my laundry room. I know it is very common to have the washing machine in the kitchen in European homes and as a result very common to have drying racks too. Although it will not work in my current house, this picture inspires me to use one for utensils even when the washing machine is not in the kitchen! Art and functionality.

I saved this image because I want to have a very narrow bench in my mudroom, similar to the one in this stairwell designed by Sean Anderson. So pretty.

The final image I saved from last week is this rendering from Plank and Pillow as inspiration for John when he makes our exterior shutters as his winter project. Cannot wait for those to be complete and hung!

As you can see, my Sixth House design continues to be tweaked. Next week is the initial design meeting with the builder - I'm so excited for the process to begin in earnest. I will keep you posted as final decisions are made.

In the meantime, I will be back tomorrow with a new feature - It's All in the Details. See you then!

Thank you for being here today, Kerry
