I wasn't sure what I wanted to blog today but since I have the prospect of a new house on my brain these days I thought I'd share some inspirational photos that I think will be a big help if and when this new house materializes. (The reasons why nothing has happened yet are complicated and well, frustrating but I'm crossing my fingers it will all get sorted out very soon). I was going to include some drawings my husband did of a design for the new house that we really like but because it's multi-levelled, I thought the drawings were a bit too confusing. So instead, I'll just stick to some photos of spaces that are right up my alley and in line with what I want for the house. I'm still hung up on lots of black and white and natural wood, a bit of Scandinavian, modern, industrial and ethnic all combined to create a hopefully somewhat cohesive but eclectic home. Oh - and check out something I picked up recently that fits in with the new house vibe, and happens to looks pretty sweet in my current living room - on my page.
I would die for windows like this, with a thick black frame. Likely too expensive but a girl can dream.
This workspace is amazing. The industrial light fixture, rough planks of wood for the work surface, funky chairs...
This storage unit would be simple to build, would hold alot of my crap, AND double as a cat climbing structure.
The ethnic vibe of this bedroom is fantastic. Awesome colour combo, and would look even more gorgeous with my moroccan wedding blanket hanging on a wall.
I am shocked to realize I really love the unexpected look of gold fixtures in a bathroom. It's a bit of old world glam that could look hot if done right (ie. below).
