Manic Monday

Good morning. It snowed here in Ohio yesterday. It will be cold again today and I am not sure if it will snow again today as it was not called for yesterday. Time will tell. I do know for sure that there is some great inspiration this Manic Monday though!

Making an entrance - hello doggies! The sun streaming in on this round table is magical. There are so many great details in this entry hall designed by Steven Gambrel. The grey paint that surrounds the wall's "picture frame" details, the chair rail, and the crown molding; paired with the black baseboard molding is a great layered detail that brings real depth to the space. I am also a big fan of the sight line into the room beyond with the grey blue trim paint and white walls. This space really draws you in. Lovely.

I have really been loving vertical paneling lately and this paneling painted in sage green is no exception. The gallery wall, jute rug, and comfy couch are all made for each other in this room designed by M + M Interior Design.

Here is an intriguing detail by Marie Nichols that is unexpected (which I love). The spindle chairs match, the fabric is different though. Do you like? I do!

These sliding doors by Millwork Artisans are showstoppers! When they are closed they look like French doors. All sliding doors should aspire to this!

This is a sofa from Mainly Baskets Home (which has amazing wicker furniture and accessories) that was displayed at High Point Market this fall. I am a huge fan of wicker and would love to use this sofa in a family room or sunroom with a statement making, vibrant fabric.

The marble border strip atop the square tile backsplash in this kitchen is such a great detail to add depth to the space. The colors in the marble also work wonders to bring the cabinets, counter tops, wall color and tile backsplash together. So pretty.

Another great detail to incorporate into a kitchen is a lamp on the countertop and this wicker shaded lamp on the island is fantastic!

This kitchen pantry includes some very attractive open shelving. The brass rods are so attractive and they partner quite well with the light switch and cabinet hardware. The black paint on the millwork and cabinetry combined with the white wide-board vertical wall panels is another great detail.

I am a firm believer in mixing periods and styles in decorating and this Adam Ellis kitchen has done that so well! I'm particularly liking the wishbone dining chairs and unique artwork.

I really like the way these headboard are covered in the same fabric, however the placement of the pattern does not match. I think this adds such character to the space and the fabric is so beautiful, you should be able to see it all!

Here are two charming tub/shower combinations! Talk about character.

I love the simplicity of this bathroom by Maison Trouvaille. The artwork is fantastic too.

I am a sucker for a chair in a bathroom and the antique chair with cane seat suits this bathroom with painted wood floors perfectly.

The exterior of this house is very handsome. The mixture of steel, stone, metal roof, shingle roof, and wood siding is magnificent.

I am charmed by the way the color of the wood on these windows matches the color of the logs on the cabin perfectly.

As a lover of details, I really appreciate the house number on this home, it is extremely welcoming.

This entry/kitchen by Ham Interiors is my favorite of the week. All of its details have lured me into love. The trim color on the millwork that carries through from the hall to the kitchen is beautiful - love. The paneled ceiling in the hall - love. The artwork, brass picture light and checkered floor in the entry - love, love, love. The tin island lighting - exceptional. The copper shelf at the bottom of the open, oval, unbelievably attractive island - true love. The darker trim on the French doors in the kitchen - amazing. The old floor boards in the kitchen - perfect. This design has inspiration galore.
