I am realizing more and more how we are just surrounded by beauty. This thought may hit me like a ton of bricks while on a hike or waterskiing or just listening to my breath, breathing in and out, laying on my yoga mat at the end of a sweaty class. More often than not, though, I realize I am blessed to work in an environment where this beauty finds me throughout the day. I’m often inspired by seeing other people’s creativity and imaginations transform blank canvases into wonderful, warm environments where people call home. As I wander through these spectacular homes, I’ve been keeping a running list of things that I love. It may be a particular piece of art, paint color, a piece of furniture, or rather a space that feels ‘just right’. Here are a few of my favorites:
SCREENED-IN PORCHES: This breathtaking space is bound to consume you when you walk in…found in the home of our own Katie Kime.
ART: Framing a gorgeous tapestry that brings the entire room to life…
WOOD FLOORS: Using reclaimed wood in all different widths and lengths as shown in this amazing hallway
OUTDOOR LIVING SPACES: Creating an outdoor space, no matter big or small, that can serve as either a retreat or a place for a glass of wine.
Or an outdoor dining space…
ENTRY: I love this inviting glass door, the thin brick walkway and the Saltillo tile that awaits your entrance found in this beautiful home on the Pedernales River, 20 miles from Austin, TX.
KK Birdcage Chairs-This KK classic piece found in the entry of a dear friend’s home.
To name a few…
What beauty INSPIRES you?
