Inspiration


Inspiration


Where do you get your style inspiration? I am a self-admitted magazine-aholic. I enjoy nothing more than sitting with a cup of green tea and pursuing over my favorite magazines!
 
Today I would like to share a little inspiration I received from the November 2013 edition of HGTV Magazine. It all started with the photo featuring a beautiful geranium red chest and  a yellow chevron pillow.

Months ago I purchased a duvet cover from Pottery Barn. It was on clearance and I received a smoking deal on it. But somehow when I got it home I could not quite get it right, until I saw the red and yellow color combination used in the magazine.  Bells rung in my head as I remembered tucked away in a closet were two beautiful red toile pillows and a red velvet quilt from years gone by.  The items no longer worked into my color scheme and I tucked them away for safe keeping.    

Initially, I wondered if it would look a little like McDonald’s. But then I put it together and realized IT WORKS! Tis the season for red. The color is warm, rich and inviting.
 
 
 






 
 

 
  
The red velvet throw is from Christmas past, and would adorn a chair in the living room for the holidays.  The script pillow is a Homegoods find that was already at home on my bed. I think the red makes it pop.
My question to you is where do you find your style inspiration?
