Inspiration can come from anywhere. Usually the least likely objects, places, events, people, sounds, smells, etc. make me feel the most creative, energetic, and passionate. From gorgeously decorative cupcakes to amusement parks rides, here are some images that I’m hoping will stimulate your creativity today. Enjoy!
(images starting at top: lovely ride from Altweibersommer, aqua bowl from Target photographed by Twelve22, low rod from ShawnWall,“Jimbo” by Queen Things, terrific living room color and neat idea for a mantel (a shelf!) by Crafty Beaver, faded web by Melissa, santos hands by Red Shoes LLC, meet boOo… spo0ky!, the girl who paints amazing wall murals, cool ceiling in a nursery from Better Homes + Gardens, and cupcakes from an Amy Sedaris recipe by Crafty Beaver.
If it’s more inspiration you seek, you simply must browse the galleries of the wonderful German photographer, Jann Peters.
I was happy when Kate sent over these images the other day, and even happier when I learned that the hand-painted canvases shown will soon be sold on the Graham & Brown website for $90. They are divided into four main groups; Silhouettes, Aviary, Damask and Parasols. In addition to Graham & Brown, Velocity will soon carry them stateside as well. Exciting!
So many scrumptious new products on the Orla Kiely website today… But the wallpaper, oh the wallpaper! Although there’s only 4 patterns to choose from, at least my favorite is one of them – Flower Blossom (top left). That would be gorgeous in a living room or bedroom. I imagine the others in a dining room or kitchen, don’t you?
I’m happy to see throw pillows and the new Linear Steam business bag (perfect size for a laptop) on the site as well as the fabulous blue wellies – boots I’d leave out to display in my entryway even when it’s not raining. I love the coffee cup pattern, it’s understated and just playful enough for me.
