Monday Mentions: March 2023
March, I don't know about you coming in like a lion and out like a lamb this year, I do know you have flown by like a rocket though! March also provided its fair share of design inspiration. Here are the images that really struck a chord with me. Hopefully you will get a lot of inspiration from them as well.
Lay It All On The Table
A well placed and styled table can really elevate a space.
The simplicity of this one is beautiful.
The mix of shapes and patterns created by using a minimal amount of objects in this hallway is stunning.
This table, dare I say vignette, in the corner looks perfectly charming.
The scale of the table and stool behind this sofa are spot on. Gorgeous.
This entire space is breathtaking. Pointing out one of the many details - I love the look of an open book, along with stacks of books, on a table like seen here.
Color Me Happy
Bold colors show real confidence in decorating.
Orange you happy you painted the wall? I am!
This color, not sure exactly what to call it - brown mustard, sort of? - envelops this kitchen and ups the charm meter by many levels. I love the table and chairs too.
Now this is bold! I am mostly struck by how perfectly upholstered the large nook cushion is.
Dark and moody kitchens are great too.
I love how the passage way to the pantry is framed by cabinetry in this kitchen.
I love how everything, including the ceiling, is painted the same color in this kitchen.
I've Never Met A Library I Didn't Like
That's not true, I do love these though!
This room has such a cool vibe. I love everything about it.
This dining room has such a cool vibe too. I love the contrast of dark and light in here.
A pocket door window shutter! This oozes charm.
Built in laundry sorting - genius. I wish my laundry room was big enough for this! Love.
I think it is charming the way the windows in this sunroom slide, rather than open out.
This slat wall is a great way to do a feature wall. I think pulling off a good feature wall is tricky (translation - I often don't like them). The best way to do it, in my opinion, is by using an architectural feature, with or without a separate paint color, rather than just a different paint color or only one wall of wallpaper. This one is a real success.
I covet this table. I wrote a blog post about it long ago.
This chair, artwork, and painted cabinet are the things that (my) dreams are made of!
To The Showers
A love seat and coffee table in the bathroom? Yes, please! I love "real" furniture in bathrooms if there is space for it and this bathroom has the space and used it - it is awesome!
I love absolutely everything about this bathroom. The way that the shower curtain and wallpaper complement each other, the light fixtures, the combination of tiles, and the dark painted trim. Gorgeous, all of it.
The sightline from this pretty pink bathroom to the bedroom is lovely.
If you're trying to build a case for shower curtains over doors, here is Exhibit A for you. Stunning.
I love the wallpaper and matching sconce shade in this powder room. My favorite feature is the marble shelf though above the sink and toilet. Genius and attractive - great combo!
Cafe curtains in a bathroom are always a good idea.
The shape of the mirror over this vanity brings so much visual interest to the space. There is also a ledge/shelf above the sink backsplash in this bathroom. Such a clever use of space!
Is it over already!?!?! Say it isn't so. I will be back next month with another Monday Mentions Post. Subscribe at the bottom of the post so you don't miss it!
