Inspiration for my foyer

The Design Files

I have been hearing alot here on the blog and on Instagram that I should paint my woodwork. I am seriously considering it...but not in my foyer. It would just be too much work and I think it is pretty sweet as it is, despite me being not overly fond of the colours. Jo saw this photo in a recent story on The Design Files and we immediately agreed this is going to be my inspiration. Lots of greenery - plants hanging in macramé hangers, a statement chair (if I can fit one), large art hanging on wall and over paneling, maybe some wallpaper, a large patterned rug, a cane basket, maybe this Tom Dixon light...

Dark inspiration

The Design Files

This weekend marks the last long weekend of the summer, and I am totally depressed about this. GAWD I hate winter! To distract myself, I have been thinking alot about my new house, and still pondering paint colour ideas. I am still completely hung up on the idea of going dark throughout my house, so I thought I would share some more inspirational photos (check out my last couple of posts on this subject here and here). On a side note, it is hard to find dark spaces that are not just boring black!)

Dark and dreamy

I found this house on Urbis Magazine's website and fell in love immediately. It's dark and modern (but not overly) with lots of beautiful wood, marble and tile used throughout. It is a small 1860's worker's cottage from the front, now a guest house and man cave, and a glorious, dark-stained barn-like structure at the rear of the property. It is the best of both worlds - old and new combined. You can read more about it here. (New addition by Bureaux Limited, photos by Simon Devitt)

P.S. Sorry, no pet post today. I was too low on entries. :(
