Currently Crushing On…

November 11, 2013

Good morning everyone and welcome to another week of inspiration and joy! I thought I’d round up a few interiors and notes from my style files lately so you can see what I’m inspired by at the moment. Some things are rather random and have more to do with non-decor stuff, which may seem funny but so many of these ideas generally cross over to interiors eventually for me. Perhaps a few of my notes will inspire your next decorating project! While looking through my notes below, you simply must listen to this mega sweet song, “Subtle (feat. Mikky Ekko)” from Active Child.

A yellow framed window – love! By stylist Tina Hellberg who is represented by Söderberg Agentur.

Okay, another one from Mokkasin but I can’t help myself, this over-scale floral wallpaper by Mr Perswall that she installed on a single wall in her home BLEW MY MIND.

Push Pop confetti from Umba. Just because. And for New Year’s from my new balcony! Also, the colors make me happy. Imagine filling a present with confetti mixed in with tissue paper. What a treat for the recipient!

Always will be inspired by big, gorgeous shelves filled with kitchen things. This is from a favorite blogger of mine, Mokkasin.

I also LOVE the color palette in this moody floral shot taken by Mokkasin. Such a great palette for a room, don’t you think?

This home (4 images above) in Sweden from Lovely Life. Oh my, a bevy of decor ideas. Love the green doors and this gorgeous geometric tilework.

I really like the home of my friend, Berit, from Snug Studio, who is a new mom and has the sweetest apartment nearby to me. I like this pendant that she created and hung above her dining room table.

I love this gray/brown script in this Home Beautiful Australia article snapped by the Sweet Style blog. Not only does it look so warm and inviting this time of year for a magazine spread, but it’s also a paint color I imagine to be quite gorgeous on my living room wall!

I know every blogger has one, but I still want a Moroccan Beni Ouarain rug like this. I wish I had taken a vintage one home with me when I was in Marrakesh visiting Maryam back a few years ago – I came THISCLOSE too. Ugh. Photo: House & Hold.

Fresh flowers. I can’t get enough. Beautiful mix shown above by Willow & Jade.

Half painted walls by VTWonen.

And more partially painted walls from Farrow & Ball. Only this time, from the top down. Love the green door, too.

What’s inspiring you at the moment?

    What an ecclectic collection! The exact same thing is happening to me at this very time… I am crushing on so many things! We are moving in January and I cant stop styling the rooms in my head… Collecting images online started to get a bit confusing, so I made up my moving mood board and have a clear vision now! Did you realize, that so many images have a flower theme? Either in print or vases? It must be the influence of your upcoming book! I can’t wait for it to be published as I love to style flowers myself!

    I love the touch of yellow… a color that I’m rediscovered so recently! And wallpapers that I always love… the picture 8 is really amazing! I would do that in my next home ;)

    I just received the latest Kinfolk magazine. I always feel inspired looking through those pages.

    Oops !! forgot to say… LOVE the rug from Morocco – no, not everybody has one…but everybody would love to have one !!! I certainly do !!!

    Wow, so much inspiration Holly. I really love the use of colour on the yellow window frame and the green doors; adds so much interest in such a simple way. I especially love the metallic copper pendants from the Elle Dekoration DK image. Mirrors should be incorporated in any space to add reflection and extra dimension and those pendants do the trick in a really interesting way.

    Love your collection of inspirational things Holly! Currently I’m finding loads of inspiration in – funnily enough – food! All kinds of cupcakes & happy, yummy sweet food like chocolate and desserts. I don’t know why.
    Also cool postcards and posters I came across lately are definitely inspiring me for bringing a look together for our baby boy’s nursery…
    Oh, and the magazine Flow ALWAYS inspires me. :-)

    Most of your images are just so tantalizingly delicious and make my heart sing.

    Oh I love that yellow window frame, and how wonderful is Berit’s home from Snug!!! Lovely!

  • Reply Laura November 15, 2013 at 9:22 pm

    I love the yellow window frame and the geometric tiles from the home in Sweden!
    So inspiring!
    And the home from Snug Studio is very cozy!
    Have a great weekend!
