Weekend Inspiration

I’d like to wrap up this beautiful week with some final inspiration! It’s always fun to celebrate the arrival of the weekend so I’ve carefully selected some special places for you to see that I feel celebrate home, relaxation, friendship and beauty. All things that I love… And hopefully some in which you will connect to and enjoy as much as I do.

Weekend Inspiration
{Joo Joo, Samantha Hahn, MAV, Fine Day Press.}

Weekend Inspiration

{Glimpses of Rachel Ashwell’s London apartment in Lonny mag. These are all objects I would use to decorate my own home.}

Weekend Inspiration
{The always inspiring Skona Hem. The gray/almost periwinkle cabinet is lovely and I love the abstract floral painting too. The colors! Oh my! They are so warm and inviting.}

Weekend Inspiration

{These are some beautiful photos that really look but also feel like how a weekend should be… This amazing photography is by Catherine Gratwicke.}

Weekend Inspiration

{My favorite views from the home of Cath Kidston as seen in Lonny mag. I love the mantle most of all.}

Weekend Inspiration

{Oh, and this image also from Lonny… I love what Cath says here, “It’s very nice to be called the queen of something, isn’t it?.” So true!}

I hope these lovely images make the beginning of your weekend a lovely one. I will meet you back here on Monday with more inspirations and decorating tips and ideas for a brand new week of eye candy just for you!

And remember… the Blogging Your Way e-course is now accepting students who do not currently have a blog as well as the seasoned bloggers who need some inspiration and ideas. To learn more about the e-class, please visit this website. To enroll, you may click here. Leslie and I hope to see you in class, we’ll have a fun time together!

See you on Monday!

    So light & airy…I especially like the slipcovered chair (white, breezy fabric). I could use that on a couple of my chairs or sure:)

    Blessings & thank you for the work that you do!

    Oooh such prettiness, thanks for gathering these all together for us Holly. You are the Queen of sourcing interior decor (bit of a mouthful but still, it’s v true!!) maybe shorten it to the Queen of Decor (8)

    Lonny looks a fab magazine, I hadn’t heard of it before will go follow the links. :)
    love Kat x

    These wallpapers, cushions and dishes are all so cheerful – what a nice start to the week-end. My favorite picture by Cathrine Gratwick shows black and white ornamental tiles with a pastel blue-grey jar and an italian coffeemaker – I just feel like sitting down and have a cup of coffee – so relaxing!

    Oh, I’ve not heard of Lonny Magazine either! Yessss, I love new mag recommendations!

    I am really enamored with the flowers around Cath Kidston’s doorway, they almost look real!
