Friday Inspirations

I'm so glad it's Friday!! Fridays are wonderful days, so full of hope and promise of the weekend (and sleeping in a bit!). They always put me in a good mood.

I thought I'd repeat what I did last week and show you some of the images that have struck me this week.

This first one is from Carolyn Quartermaine, a British designer. I love her fabric designs!! So unusual and pretty.

This next photo is from Claudia Bryant via Desire to Inspire. Just after we hung up our gallery picture wall I see this, and now I'm wondering how to incorporate this into what I have.
I also love the lightness of this room, as I've been pondering painting our living room (again).

Same with this room - Rebekah posted this on EAD Livng last week, and I just love it. I love the lightness, the haphazard frame artwork, the orange pillow, the green to balance it...

But then, I'm also drawn to darker and moody rooms too! I love the color on the walls here, and how it is complimented with the salmon and the green. (Picture from Casa Sugar)

A medium neutral color, like in this picture from Decorology, is really pretty and is flexible enough to go into most rooms. And how awesome is this antique desk??

This pile of blue pillows, also from Desire to Inspire, caught my eye.

As did the colors in this picture from Claudia Bryant.
And of course, here are a couple of designs from one of my newest obesessions! John Derian's decoupaged plates.

I hope this Friday finds you all well! Have a great weekend!

That antique desk is all kinds of awesome. I love the script look on the British pieces as well.

I keep thinking today is Saturday, even though I am sitting at work a part of my brain still really believe it is. I think I've finally lost it.

These are all so lovely! I am the same way with paint. We constantly dream of new color combinations.
