Monthly Home and Furniture Design Ideas #3

Monthly Home and Furniture Design Ideas #3

This month, I have more beautiful Model Home furniture and interior design inspiration for you!

This month I’m mixing in some of my own furniture builds with beautiful inspiration from Home Goods and Kirklands. I snapped the inspiration pictures while visiting family in Cincinnati. That’s right, I made my sweet neice stop every 2 minutes to watch me take pictures while we were wandering around the store. But these furniture design ideas were too great. I had to save them for later.

And, I’m not the only one that loves to find design inspiration for my next build. I know a lot of you do too. So, I’m sharing these fun finds with you! If you use one of these as inspiration for your next build, please let me know! I’d love to see what you’ve done. But if you prefer buying maybe you’re local Kirklands or Home Goods will still have these items available.  🙂

Don’t forget to check out more inspiration photos from the 2nd monthly home and furniture design post too. And the 1st furniture and home design post is very popular on Pinterest. But let’s get to today’s picks!
