Caught My Eye

Browsing online I found some clever and lovely decorating ideas that caught my eye.  From Southern Living magazine:


An enlarged and framed hand written envelope.  You could find similar at The Graphics Fairy site.


Cork cabinet pulls.  How cool would this be in a wine cellar or an area designated for wine and wine tastings.

Wall map art.

From Better Homes & Gardens:


Taking advantage of every inch of space in this craft closet.


Family command center/desk area in a French Country kitchen.  Love the warm color.


From Country Living magazine. Love this archway! 


One of my favorite patterns on a floor.


I love what I can see of this painted pink cabinet.


Side tables being used as a coffee table.

Lots of ideas and inspiration!

You are so right!! Lots of great ideas and inspiration. I've always loved the look of the framed envelope.

I love the "pattern floor" room!

Marsha @ Tattered Chick said...

Now those cork knobs are pretty clever! Although I don't care for yellow that room is so warm and inviting!!!

I hope you're having a fabulous week!!

All of these ideas are very creative. My favorites are the pink secretary and painted floors.

Hi Kathy, I have the photo of the large envelope saved in my inspiration file for a future project. Thanks for the inspiration.

Gail said...

Oh Kathy, such awesome inspirations. I love the large envelope. I'm getting ready to re-do my bedroom and I was thinking of enlarging a letter I received in the mail that my husband wrote to me the day before our wedding. My thought isn't an original thought afterall. Thanks for sharing.

Enjoy your day,

Thanks for compiling all those pictures! I found myself gasping at each one~I think my favorite is that yellow kitchen, and i'm not even a big yellow fan! But then that arched doorway is to die for

Hi Kathy, I love what you did with your long hallway. The egg prints are so lovely. Wouldn't you just love an envelope hanging in your home! I know I would! Such fun. Always, E

Hi Kathy...

Oh.... I'm sorry to hear you have the punies too.... I hope you're feeling up and well ASAP! We chickies have way too much to do to give time up being sick... I did NOTHING....and I mean NOTHING.... It was just me and the TV. Usually I can buck up and at least do some needlework or something... I kept thinking "what a waste of time".... I guess resting isn't such a bad thing though... :-) And, I did get to watch TV which I don't have much time for....

I love the pictures... Especially the archway. Isn't that just delish?? Oh how I'd love that in my house.

Feel better soon Chickie!


Sonya@Beyond the Screen Door said...

Absolutely Ladylike said...

Great inspirations dear Kathy! I love the archway and -of course- the pink cabinet! Thanks for sharing :-)

Happy Valentines Day!

Cheers: Evi

Makes me want to get busy doing something!
