Monthly Furniture and Home Design Inspiration #1

Monthly Furniture and Home Design Inspiration #1

You can find so much inspiration and beauty in a normal week. I’m constantly snapping pictures of things I love.

We were thinking about moving recently, so touring Model Homes has been a popular weekend activity lately. They are always decorated by amazing Interior Designs. I can never tell if I love the house or just the furniture inside. 😉 I am always snapping pictures of beautiful furniture that I might want to build or home design inspiration that I hope I can try to recreate at home.

I finally realized that if I find these pictures inspiring, then you might too! Except for a couple pictures from Target, I took all of these photos myself.  I wish I could provide more detail on where to find the furniture and decor in these pictures, but I have no idea where to buy these things. BUT IF YOU RECOGNIZE something from a store or designer, please let us know in the comments. Thanks!!!

I love the mix of fabric and wood on this bed. The darker wood and lighter fabric is eye-catching too. Ignore the child passed out on the bed. He’ll do anything to be in my pictures. 😉

A closer look at the headboard.

I loved this bed frame too. The paint finish and build looks doable. I’d probably replace the grass or wicker with fabric or wood, just for DIY purposes.

This beautiful wood and fabric headboard from Target is similar to that frame I found at the Model Home. Still pretty and the price is pretty good too!

This little sitting area in a Master Bedroom is so cozy and sweet. Love the furniture choices here. There are quite a few pieces but it doesn’t feel tight.

This bench is so simple and beautiful. It would be an easy DIY for anyone that likes woodworking too. I’m not sure why a bedroom bench is full of towels. LOL. I’d probably go with pretty pillows and blankets! I’m not ready to replace my DIY Upholstered Farmhouse Bench, but maybe I can build this for the guest room.

This Club Chair is my favorite. The leather is the perfect color and finish. The weathered wood paint finish is great too. I wish I knew where to get this chair!

This Nate Berkus Linen Tufted Chair at Target has the same style and feel as that beautiful chair I loved. I’d love to see it in my Master Bedroom. But I’m wondering if the color would be too light against my newly painted bedroom walls now. This similar Blue Velvet Club Chair might be better.

This Dining Room table is full of awesome! The table would be a great build, the chairs are so pretty, the wood slice chargers are fantastic. I’ll take all of it, please.

Another inspiring design, that I like to think I could build. But even if you can’t build. It’s a beautiful piece.

This little end table is pretty cool, right? I love the idea of gluing all of those pieces up for one of my own designs.

I found this rustic beauty at a local gas station. That’s right, I said gas station. But to be fair, Buccee’s is a ginormous gas station full of furniture, gifts and food. It’s a Texas thing. This table is pretty roughly made. But I love the idea, the chippy paint, and the build inspiration.
Some easy and trendy Mantel Decor Ideas For 2018. I'm loving the Tiny House decor trend, JoAnna Gaines' line at Target, and adding more natural elements like wood and greenery. Especially Acacia! #TargetFinds #FixerUpperStyle
Here’s a quick look at recent inspiration from my own home. I shared my Winter Mantel Update in a recent post. This picture shows the JoAnna Gaines galvanized metal house I love! You can also see more of my home and find the source for most of those items. Have a great week!

  1. All of these are great for inspiration. You have a good eye for design details. Thanks for linking up at #HomeMattersParty

  2. This furniture is so nice. I especially love the bedroom, all those beige colours should be boring, but they look very pretty together.

  3. Odd that the end-of-bed-bench is full of towels, like you said. Maybe at a beach or something. Love the headboards you’re showing & love the rusticity of the Texas table.
