When it comes to inspiration very little is off-limits!
When I say very little I do really mean that….I have been moved creatively by bark on trees, beautifully patinaed street hardware, vintage scarves, not to mention the randomness of my treasures from my antique hunts…just to name a few!
Today I have one word for you…Thermos!
That’s right the vessel that held your soup as a child and now holds your coffee is my latest muse. Yesterday I was out and about doing my treasure hunting thing and could not get enough of these beauties. The color combo…the patterns…spectacular!
Where we went with more of a zen vibe and used textures in a big way in the master bath we flipped the switch in the guest bath and went in for a Hollywood Regency vibe. We used a favorite color combo platter of mine…a vibrant green mixed with black & white, then played with the hexagon shape in several places that set a mod/ vintage tone. And for good glam measure we went with a mirrored vanity and a vintage milk glass pendant.
ROYGBIV has always been a clever way to remember the colors in the rainbow and color wheel. Well I actually had the opportunity to spend a few fun days in ROYGBIV! Not possible you say…wrong you are!
ROYGBIV truly exists as a town in New Jersey….Cape May, New Jersey. Cape May is an absolutely lovely Victorian seaside resort town that became popular in the mid 18th century and is BEYOND charming and colorful!
If it’s not on your list it is a must add. The town is not just a summer town, it is beautiful place to visit in the fall and during the holidays.
somewhere is the rainbow,
Although I am a total ROYGBIV gal and color is my middle name (not really it’s Suzanne) for my master bath remodel that is just wrapping up I leaned hard into textures…when I say hard I mean I followed my normal gig of more is more. AND I LOVE IT!!!!
These are the textures I combo plattered into the bath of my dreams. I will have a reveal and some fun before and afters but still waiting for the final touches!
Now onto the guest bath…
inspiration everyday * everyday inspiration
Often the question comes up of how and where do I get inspired from a design perspective…
For me it’s simply that I get out there with me eyes wide open no matter where I am with ferocious curiosity. I look up, look down, open doors, ask questions and go into corner’s (you never know what you might miss otherwise) of wherever my adventure might take me. Those adventures are sometimes a hike out in the wonderful world of Mother Nature, exploring a city and all it has to offer, rummaging through a flea market or in this case an amazing visit to Palm Springs.
Palm Springs for me was an EPIC ULTRA hotbed for all things design and inspiration…here is my Show & Tell.
