Manic Monday

Happy Manic Monday! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. To start off the new, after holiday week, I have a rather short post today sharing some beauty that inspired me over the course of Thanksgiving week.

This first image is very "Thanksgiving-y" in color to me. The color of this hallway is so attractive and is painted in a way that it looks like wallpaper. The floor boards, antique furniture, dark and gold framed artwork and mirror, crisp white trim and sightline into the dining room are all absolutely stunning. Small spaces with big color are the best!

The pale blue trim in this entryway and worn painted checkerboard floor create the most warm welcome. This space oozes with charm. The door knob looks identical to the one on the front door of my house in Baltimore. It was original to the 1790 structure so I know this house is old and this entry makes me want to see the rest!

I am smitten with the monochromatic scheme of this orange tree vignette. It has a Scandinavian flair that is very calming and peaceful, so pretty.

This kitchen is a stunner with the statement hood and long, antique table in the center. I also love the ceiling, it adds a lot of texture and visual interest to this all white space.

The peak into this kitchen makes me want to go in, make a cup of tea, and sit in the window space. This appealing kitchen beckons you inside like a hug.

I really like the horizontal paneling and the simplicity of the window trim in this work space. The fact that it is painted green makes it that much better!

I love, love, love these dining room chairs - I wish they were mine! I also love the fact that you can change the fabric on the seat cushions to make these chairs fit in any dining room or kitchen scheme you have. Character and versatility are great assets when looking for furniture.

I have always loved the look of a bench or sofa on one side of a dining room table. It seems benches/sofas are almost always a built in or up against the wall in a dining room and I really like the way this one is centered in the room with the table. If a dining room is large enough to accommodate this configuration, I much prefer the centered set-up.

The last of today's inspiration is this serene, exquisite bedroom. How lovely it would be to have a working fireplace in the bedroom - I might never leave the room though! This is so beautiful, as is the view into the garden through the large window.

I hope this has given you the boost of beauty you need to start your week off on the right foot. I will be back tomorrow with an On Trend Tuesday post. See you there.

Thank you for being here today,
