inspiring spaces + places

errmergerrrrrd you guys! i’ve gone pinterest crazy with all these inspiring spaces i can’t even stand it! i’m out of my funk and in full on design mode…seriously, i think the UPS guy is having flashbacks to the first 10 months after we moved in, and my husband is about to have a heart attack with the copious amounts of cardboard boxes that are marching through the front door…but we are making progress people! just step aside and put the boxes next to those boxes!

each one of the photos below spoke to me in some way shape or form over the last couple of weeks. whether it be rugs, navy or turquoise, wooden boxes, the fig tree…i think i’ve incorporated (or will be incorporating) a snippet or element from each room in the house. i mean, things are cookin’ over here. i swear i want to take a month off from my real job and just focus on this creativity.

but back to the spaces below…if you guys thought the last inspiring spaces + places was a good one, just wait because i’m going to kill it with this one. i hope you guys find them as inspiring as i do…oh and hey, have a great weekend! do you have anything amazing planned? i’ll probably be moving things around in the house…LOL! and according to FedEx, the rug i just ordered should be arriving saturday…woot! woot! can’t wait to show you!
