Manic Monday

Happy new week! I hope you had a lovely weekend. Here are the images that struck me over the past week with their beauty and innovation - a great way to start this week!

This entry with its round table stacked with books, fireplace!, artwork, and sightline to the living room is exquisite.

The desk nestled under these stairs is so attractive. I have a rule/belief that taller items should be on the left when styling and placing furniture and/or artwork. I think height on the left is more pleasing to the eye. This desk is a perfect example of that with the items on the desk following the rising of the stairs.

This entry/mudroom is so attractive it makes perfect sense that you can see it from the living room!

Every time I think I want to paint all of my walls white and let the artwork and furniture speak for themselves, I see dark rooms like these next two and do a complete turnaround. Ultimately, I think having a mix of dark rooms and light is the best course of action.

I love everything about this window seat. The ticking fabric on the seat, the linens on the throw pillows (all absolutely fantastic!), the artwork, window shade and wallpaper. They all sing together in perfect harmony!

I am intrigued by the narrow table behind the sofa. It is the perfect option to provide lighting to the sofa. I think there is a belief that tables behind sofas should be full accessible and this image proves that is not at all the case.

I saw this image in a magazine and loved the symmetry of these two matching cabinets and urns.

I have been drawn to kitchens lately that have large sink-less islands and this one is gorgeous.

I was struck by the several different tones of green paint in this kitchen space and how well they all work together.

In this space I love how the face board of the shelving extends to the far wall despite the protruding column. It's all in the details and this is a great one!

This image cements my Feature Fever for a fireplace in the kitchen. This kitchen is an oldie but goodie that I would still want today! I wish, I wish.

This entire bedroom screams "come in", what I am drawn to the most though is the patterned bedskirt, I love it.

This is an extremely attractive shower door solution for the sloped ceiling. This bathroom is small and mighty.

Another small and mighty bathroom making the best use of every square inch!

Lastly, my love affair with breezeways continues. This image makes me really miss my Holland house as I am living through the exterior work being done to our current house and yard without a place for us to transition from outside dirty to inside clean, especially the dog! The breezeway in this image has an added level of awesomeness though because of the stream of water flowing underneath it into the fountain on the other side. Fabulous.

This is the end of this week's Manic Monday curation. I hope it leaves you feeling inspired! I will be back tomorrow with an On Trend Tuesday post. See you there.
