My inspiration stash - round 1

I thought I would do a little something different today so last night I went through my inspiration folder (always a bit sad as it seems rebuilding this house is never going to become reality) and picked out all of the photos that really stand out and make me have heart palpitations. So here's the first batch. 

This has been my favourite wood floor for EVER. I adore the rustic/raw look. DREAMY. (Via Hus & Hem)

While I love my current kitchen, black and white kitchens always get me going. The tile backsplash is perfection. (Via Anna Carin Design)

My next kitchen absolutely must have some sort of butler's pantry type situation going on. Check out the little space off this kitchen. (Elizabeth's lake house

The simplest way to hide a TV and media components - stick them in a black hole. Genius! (via Lucyna Kołodziejska)

I would LOOOVE an easy way for the cats to go in and out in the summer. This would make my life SO much easier and I would have much happier cats. :) (via MAKE architecture)

...and a low window setup where they can hang out and watch birds and squirrels. (via Jarmund/Vigsnæs AS Arkitekter MNAL)

...or I can go all out and build them a huge wall structure play centre, hence defining my crazy cat lady status. (via Schuyler Samperton)

I saw this photo on Instagram and had a random thought - how cool it would be to have a box deep enough to lay in and read a book. Have a light hanging down and it be a little hangout nook. I have a serious obsession with nooks. (via Alice Gao)

BEST. DINING. TABLE. (via Bricks Amsterdam)

A round window. A giant peephole. Just to piss off the builders. ;) (via Yatzer)

Are those steps in the top pic (with yellow chairs) for cats or hoomans? I want to build my cats an aerial highway around the house. passing lanes may be needed :-)

I would guess humans. And against all building code - but perfect for felines!

If you want to know what product this beautiful floor on the first pic is... it is the da capo collection "Indossati" from kährs. Here the German Website http://www.kahrs.com/de-DE/Konsument/Produkte/3-Schicht-Parkett/Kahrs-Supreme/Da-Capo-Collection/Eiche-Indossati/ (english is also available)...

We have the Artisan Collection in Oak Concrete in our flat - very very beautiful too :)

Greets from Germany - you have a nice blog!
