Houspiration

I don’t know why I made up the word, but I did.  This post is all about housepiration (aka inspiration for the house).  It could be my house, your house, your mom’s house… but mostly its going to be about things that I would like for my house.

OK, Trever gave me a link that contained photos of different inspiring rooms in a bunch of houses.  Some are from Dominio (RIP) and others that I’m not to sure of, so if you know the sources, please let me know!  Here are just a few of my favorites from his 325 photo collection:

I love how conversational this room is.  I don’t want my living room to revolve around the television, I want it to be a place of rest and fellowship.

I love the cool natural colors here, the grid-like patterns, but also the sort of accelecticness.

Okay, so I debated this one.  I love the copper, the yellow, and the white, but I’m not a huge fan of the floor.  Just imagine a wood floor and maybe a subtle white stripe.

Again, a very conversational room.  I think the problem we may run into is that our home doesn’t have a fireplace, so we’ll need something to harness the room and bring it all together.  I love the stark contrast of the one dark wall.

What do you think? I’m sensing a liking to yellow here…

I love the serenity of the blue, with the bright punch of orange here.

I am totally feeling the light green and rustic brown in this room.

Don’t ask me why, but I have always wanted something like this… I just love it.  I think it’s the mix of country and chic.

    I just saw this link and thought “genius! I HATE packing/unpacking fragile items… I wish I knew someone who was moving soon”. Thus the story of how I ended up here. :)
