Where do you get your decorating inspiration from? For me it's a combination of what I see in magazines, blogs (lately) and shopping displays. I love to window shop, ok maybe occasionally buy ;) things at my favorite decorating shops. When I lived in MO, before my kiddos came along I would drive about an hour to do just this...get inspiration. Liberty, MO Sometimes I would try to recreate what I saw exactly. I may get lucky and have some of the items already. Then other times I would buys key pieces and add, or take away others depending on what I liked. Another thing I might do is to buy other items at discount stores on the way home. That was always my last stop. If I really like the twenty dollar silk geranium I know Hobby Lobby would have something much cheaper. Also, some of those shops would buy from chains like Michael's or HL and mark up the item for resale. Here's an example of what I created from a magazine. I've had this for years in my files of things I love.
The inspiration photo, sorry it's not clearer.
If you look closely you can see the flower pots, chalkboard and little fence like in my hutch. They also have some old gardening tools mixed in with the pots, seed packets and nests. I think this is great for May, June decorating when so many of us are in the garden.
Give away Reminder go here, you have until Monday! Don't forget to visit my new blog and become a follower.
