Here's a Bit of Inspiration

I thought I'd share a few random inspiration pictures from my files with you while I'm out of town.
There's no rhyme or reason to these, just simply things that appeal to me.

From HGTV's Rate My Space, Wishing Well

From Romantic Homes a long time ago

Country Living Magazine

2009 HGTV Dream Home (LOVE that floor!)

Not my fave colors, but I think the wall is so creative.

Love the softness of this. Not sure where I found the picture.

I know this came from RMS, but I didn't save the name. If it's yours, let me know.

What kid wouldn't go nuts for this room?

So clever! From a model home in Houston, TX.

Looking over all of these pictures, it seems I'm drawn to so many different styles. I can appreciate attributes in every picture. It's funny, but I'm as drawn to the last picture as I am the one before it, and yet the only similarity I can see is the clean lines of the design. In fact, I'm noticing that most of these pictures have tailored lines in the decor.
Maybe that's why my house is never finished, because I can never make up my mind what I like the most. I'll think I have all of my fabrics chosen, and then someone comes out with one that always a bit better for one reason or another. I have so many fabrics stacked up on my desk in the workroom that eventually I'll be able to sew them together and have patchwork on everything in the house!

I'll post some more inspiration next week in an effort to hold you over until I get back home to take pictures of more of my many (unfinished) projects.


  1. Well, Polly, they are all certainly beautifully done rooms! You're right ~ there is something in each one of them that I can say I really like.

  2. You and I love some of the same RMS pictures.

  3. I love the inspiration pictures. I am preparing to redo my guest bedroom so I love seeing some pics for ideas. Have a great weekend.

  4. Wow what a fabulous post! I just loved each and every picture Polly! Thanks! Kim

  5. Looks like I need to visit RMS more often. You found great inspiration there. Saw lots of elements I loved and can or have incorporated in my home. I love the red and white bedroom. I got to tour the HGTV Dream home you included. That carpet and the chair were my favorite in the whole house.

  6. You and me both love that red and white checked floor! I just love pretty pictures. And so I drool over my decorating magazines at length.

  7. Hi Polly:
    Thanks for commenting on my tassel. With your talent I am sure you can create one gorgeous tassel. I've seen your work area so I know you have the materials!
    I found a vintage piece of sheet music at an antique store the other day titled "Polly". It's dated 1926. It has a lovely graphic of a young woman on the front. It was only $1.00 so I bought it thinking that I would send it to you if you would like to have it. This is my little was just too cute to pass up and I think someone with the name Polly should have it. If you're interested just drop me an e-mail (on my profile page) with your address and I'll send it your way.

  8. Jane, thank you so much!! Of course I'd love it! I'm sending you an email right now.

  9. Hi Polly:
    I used E6000 glue on the silver pieces. I just did it yesterday...I think it's going to hold!
    Have a great weekend.

  10. What gorgeous inspiration pics! I'm off to check out the RMS moredesign one you showed and the girl's room with the pink and white stripes gave me a few ideas.


I realize we all have busy lives, and taking the time to comment is not always easy. When you do find that time, it makes me appreciate you even more. If you like what you see or read, feel free to pass on the link to my blog with others. Thank you so much for stopping by!
