Happy Tuesday! It’s time for another 10 Pins post… the months just seem to be flying by lately. Does anyone else feel that? Although, I will say this- I’m still waiting on our spring weather to stick. We had snow flurries again yesterday. Oof. Perhaps that’s why most of the inspiration I’ve been gravitating toward on Pinterest feels spring-like, bright, cheerful, and seasonally geared toward the spring & summer months. Expect to see some beautiful outdoor spaces, plenty of florals & greenery, and cheerful styling as you’re scrolling through this one. Click through to see what felt inspiring to me this month…
#1 // Textural Entryway
This entryway is filled with texture, warmth, and plenty of layers. It’s really a nice collection of decor and accessories! From the grasscloth wallpaper to the woven shade and textural console table, this tiny space packs a big design punch- especially for having a neutral color palette.
#2 // Study / Studio
I studied this image for quite awhile and kept discovering new things. The shelves are packed with books and treasures, I actually really like the pedestal lamp, and the easel feels like the star of the show. It’s really a genius vignette… using a closet with bifold doors as built-ins. That’s a wonderful way to add architectural interest and create dynamic open storage. Clever!
#3 // Natural Kitchen
All of the organic and natural materials in this kitchen were speaking to me… the woven bar stools, the wood, the marble, the roman shade, the cutting boards, and even the fern. It’s neutral, but very warm and welcoming! You know I’m also digging that ginger jar.
#4 // Relaxing Bathroom
Mark Sikes can do no wrong… I’m pretty sure I’ve said that before. Have I ever told you this image was inspiration for our kitchen? It’s not an obvious connection, but that’s usually how inspiration works for me. I was immediately drawn to the reeded glass windows and decided right then that I wanted reeded glass cabinetry. This classic, bright bathroom will forever be a favorite!
#5 // Layered Dining Room
This dining room feels a little on the cool side to me (it could just be the photography temperature or color balance), but the floor plan, window treatments, centerpiece, and those gorgeous dining chairs are what made me pin this!
#6 // Minimal Fireplace Vignette
I’ve gotta find one of those chairs!! That thing stopped me mid scroll. This simplistic and minimal fireplace vignette is really striking. It just goes to show that design doesn’t have to be complicated. Don’t overthink it!
#7 // Spring Floral Arrangement
This floral arrangement is what my spring dreams are made of… and you already know I have a soft spot for dark, moody cabinetry. Talk about an incredible centerpiece for a kitchen island or dining table! Yowza!!
#8 // Powder Room
Jean Stoffer announced yesterday that she is getting her own series on the Magnolia Network and I couldn’t be more excited and happy for her! You better believe I watched her first episode as soon as it aired. She is so talented! I love seeing wonderful people in the design community doing cool things. This powder room was one of my favorite spaces she designed at the Madison.
#9 // Staircase
I’ll admit- I’ve had staircases on my brain lately because I’ve been dreaming up design plans for our entryway. The office renovation is moving at snail speed (thanks to crazy lead-times), so I’ve been multitasking. This simple cottage staircase is really beautiful! I love that the runner matches two entry / hall rugs. What a nice custom detail!
#10 // Outdoor Dining Space
I fell in love with this dreamy and romantic outdoor dining space. From the florals and landscaping to the oversized pavers and antique dining furniture- this is what my backyard dreams are made of. Maybe someday! Isn’t it stunning?!
I hope you’re having a good week so far. Things are moving right along over here. Which image or interior inspiration was your favorite this time? I’d love to hear in the comment section below.

Happy Tuesday Sarah!
The first and last picture had me dreaming of a vacation escape. They transported me and my morning coffee, lounging outside into a warm, fragrant escape with the sun shining brightly and a sweet breeze. Ha! I wish ☺️
Number 3 and 7 also have me dreaming of a kitchen renovation as I have pondered over the last year how fabulous our kitchen could be. Lol.
I’ve been able to garden a ton over the last week which has been incredibly productive. It didn’t rain as much forecasted and I’m on the home stretch for completing some really big garden tasks. Yay! Although there is snow in the forecast tomorrow 😡 and all my beautiful bulbs are in full bloom. My heart will be broken if they wilt from the snow, there blooming time is not long enough as it is. Anyway great inspiration as always Sarah, thanks so much! Have a super terrific day 💐
SarahApril 21, 2021 at 11:06 am
Hope you had a great Tuesday, Colleen! I’m playing catch up on comments because my internet has been out. Those images also have me dreaming of a getaway. You painted a lovely picture there! I wish I could teleport to someplace warm and sunny to enjoy my coffee with you. Ha! I’m so happy to hear you’ve been spending some good time in the garden lately. Keep up the good work- it’s always worth it! We had snow flurries as well, and my flowers are not looking great. Argh. I’m hoping for some sunny days ahead. We’ve had icky weather this week and I’m ready to tuck my sweaters and boots away for the season. Despite the snow (hopefully it missed you), I hope you’re having a beautiful week! xo

Oh my goodness. I think these posts need to be renamed “All. The. Tabs.” You know I can’t resist clicking over to the source and then… I can’t believe how much I love that entry “especially for having such a neutral palette.” I recently passed on a beautiful roll of grasscloth wallpaper at the thrift store because I couldn’t think of a use for it; duh, parson’s table. That kitchen is another neutral space I’m loving; the blackened brass hood and wide, rough floors are an interesting combo. Also, I went on an Etsy sojourn for black ginger jars. #trouble Though now I think maybe it’s brown? The reeded glass was the first detail I noticed in that bathroom; then I remembered the cabinets in MY bathroom have reeded glass! I see what you mean about the coolness of that dining room photo, but what a space! The ticking drapes, those steel casement windows/doors and those chairs! I could do brunch there! Ha! That brass chair is def a scroll-stopper!! Combined with those old floors? Swoon. Holy dahlias, Batman! And more reeded glass and ticking stripes! Have I ever told you about the dahlia stand near me? A man grows a huge plot and puts fresh bouquets in a self-serve cooler by the roadside. $12 if you agree to return the vase; $10 if you just take the flowers! Crazy wonderful. The Madison? What a project! I adore Jean Stoffer. How whimsical that I would look like a vintage portrait while looking in that mirror.🤣 Boo to crazy lead times, but seeing your entry plans will be delightful. I’ll be interested to see how you tackle such an open space. (Also, I’m maybe not sure how it relates to your other rooms exactly…) More black steel doors/windows in that last image-arched, no less!! Feeling those enormous pavers, the simple furniture and whatever amazing flowering vine that is! I’m even loving the vibe on the inside. Dreamy, for sure.
Thanks for all of the amazing inspiration!
We’re having windy days, but I can’t complain about the sunny 70 degrees! It’s just a tease because May is always rainy, but I’ll take it! Snow flurries would absolutely push me over the edge. Here’s to blue skies and good busy!💜

Peggi, a brown ginger jar sounds beautiful! Hope it turns out like you want. Have a great day!
SarahApril 21, 2021 at 11:03 am
All the tabs!! Haha! I love it. I’m behind on comments after being without internet for a couple days (ugh), sorry I’m just responding! The grasscloth parsons table sounds like a fun project to try! Serena & Lily sent me one of theirs that lives at our Tuesday Made office and it’s really beautiful. It’s currently sitting in front of our curved sofa that used to be in the living room. Black and brown ginger jars are so gorgeous! I basically love all the ginger jars, no matter the color: rust, blue, black, brown, whatever! Fun that you also have reeded glass in your bathroom- how did I not know that?! I bet it’s beautiful. I could definitely have brunch with you at that big dining table- it’s a dreamy space that feels like a visual vacation. Ok, I’m envious about your local flower growing man… that’s an incredible deal and what a fun person in the community to support. I love that! I just ordered tile samples this morning for our entryway and I have my fingers crossed they’re what I had envisioned them to look like. I’m thinking there will also be some taxidermy in the entryway- that feels like an appropriate place to display a piece or two from my dad’s collection. I wish I knew what that amazing flowering vine was in the last image- it’s beautiful. I’m envious of your 70 degree weather. It has been icky here all week- 40s and 50s. Tomorrow is supposed to be sunny, so I’m holding out and hoping for that. Hope your week is going swimmingly! xo
Anne HApril 22, 2021 at 3:45 pm
LOVE “All. The. Tabs!” Sooooo true, Peggi!
Jennifer LauraApril 20, 2021 at 10:31 am
Love all this gorgeous inspiration!!
SarahApril 21, 2021 at 10:56 am
Thank you, Jennifer! I love hearing that. Hope you’re having a great week :)
Danna FApril 20, 2021 at 10:36 am
Oh, the first picture had me…just had me at wanting to be in that beautiful home enjoying the doors open with fresh air the beauty outside! The reeded glass was a brilliant idea for your kitchen cabinets. Love it in the bathroom too. Then the picture of the ‘Natural Kitchen’ made me melt. Yes to the brown ginger jar (since I am not a blue fan..sorry). The woven chairs, bench seating, wood tones..it all is gorgeous! Give me all the spring florals and arrangements. I am drawn to curved entryways.
Hope your weather turns warmer and you can get to enjoy the outside. We had hail one day last week. No car damage but I am sure the roof has some. Yep, Texas weather is so unpredictable sometimes.
SarahApril 21, 2021 at 10:55 am
Right? Me too, Danna! We’re still having cold icky weather here this week. I’m hoping it warms up and the sun comes out tomorrow. I’m glad you didn’t have any major hail damage. Texas weather seems just as crazy as Utah weather, haha! I love the brown and black colored ginger jars equally as much as the blue- they’re beautiful! Hope you’re having a good week :) xo

I looked at the closet photo for a long time too, but ended up deciding that it was too staged and not real enough to be a working desk area. Very pretty details though. My favorite is the natural kitchen, down to the natural plug, and the countertops!
SarahApril 20, 2021 at 7:38 pm
Really? I didn’t notice that, but maybe you’re right Julie! It’s a beautiful vignette though. I also love the natural kitchen, but the lamp cord is driving me INSANE. For editorial images (and even in real life), I much prefer those details to be removed or hidden behind the fixture… pet peeve of mine. Ha!
LaurenApril 20, 2021 at 8:21 pm
Correct answer: all of the above! If teleportation were a real thing we’d all be in some serious trouble. I’ll take mimosas and brunch in the outdoor seating area from Micheal Lee, borrow the stunning glass lamp from the natural entryway, have a read in that giant (sure to be vintage) book in the Thomas O’Brien study, and then pop over for a visit in the natural kitchen. This is where I would pause, have a rest while looking out at the lush landscape beyond that window, and gaze in wide eyed wonder at the contrast between all that stunning marble, and the show stopping range hood. (Side note: I was just at Tuesday Morning and they had the most beautiful black and white ginger jar-very much reminded me of this one, but oh my Peggi; brown sounds glorious!) I’d pop in for a soak in the tub of the Mark D Sikes bathroom (I mean, reeded glass windows, can you even?), and then I’d spend a day or two sitting in that amazing dining room. Ahhhh-this is what my dining room dreams are made of. The blue, the tone of the chairs, the centerpiece, and not to mention those window treatments. Gah!! This is the vibe I want in our dining room. I would definitely play pretend statue in that amazing chair by the minimal fireplace, stop to smell all the florals in that dreamy kitchen and play vintage portrait with Peggi in the mirror of that enchanting bathroom. (That color play between the paint and the wallpaper is absolute genius). I’d have to have a slide down the banister of that amazing staircase, and then pre-dinner cocktails with all of us gals in the outdoor dining space. The landscape 😍😍 I’m dying over the vines; plus peep that chair in the window! 😍😍Hello gorgeous! If only teleportation were real…Boo indeed to crazy lead times-but I can’t say I’m mad about you having time to dream up your entry-that means it’s going to be a showstopper! This round of ten pins was incredible-jam packed spring inspiration and I’m here for all of it!
SarahApril 21, 2021 at 11:30 am
Oh, I know! That would be amazing though. It sounds like we’re all craving brunch and mimosas lately. I want more of that to happen in the year ahead. I am so sad our local Tuesday Morning closed down last year. I miss perusing their aisles for treasure. Did you get the ginger jar?! This entire narrative and teleportation schedule sounds like my ideal plan- I’m coming with, Lauren! Ha! Hope you have a happy and sunny Wednesday :) xo
LaurenApril 21, 2021 at 1:34 pm
I didn’t! While it was beautiful, the black and white doesn’t sing to my soul quite the way the blue and white does. I’m trying to resist the urge to buy “place holders”. I’d rather hold out, find the right thing vintage or new, and just be overjoyed when I find the right piece. I know they’ll have something to love down the road. Sad yours closed!
SarahApril 23, 2021 at 9:37 am
I totally get and respect that! I’m the same way.
Anne HApril 22, 2021 at 3:44 pm
Most perfect day EVER, Lauren!! Loved the picture you painted.💗
Anne HApril 22, 2021 at 3:39 pm
Gah, no!! Sarah, why do you do this to me?! 🤣Seriously, this may be my favorite Pinterest round up yet. Both, the first shot and #10 have me dreaming of NOT living in a fourth floor condo-STUNNING all around!! The Natural Kitchen (#3), Relaxing Bath (#4), Spring Floral (#7), Powder Room (#8) and Staircase (#9) are my other favorites, for too many reasons to mention. Beautiful, beautiful work from these incredible designers.
Speaking of designers w/ tv shows, would a round up of some of the ones you’re enjoying be too weird? My current favorite is probably Home Again w/ the Fords on HGTV. I love seeing the crazy stuff Leanne comes up with. Overall, her styles a bit too stark to me, but I often find myself loving parts of some of her reno’s that I wouldn’t have thought I would. I haven’t yet pulled the trigger on Discovery+, but it’s only a matter of time! Dying for some new Fixer Uppers.
I agree w/ Julie that #2 seems too styled to me. I would also hate facing the inside of the closet like that, though so that’s part of it, too. And I’m with you on the lamp cords – totally drive me crazy, as well.
Always LOVE seeing what you find on Pinterest- a girl can totally dream! ❤️
SarahApril 23, 2021 at 9:12 am
Haha! I waste way too many hours perusing Pinterest! I love all of your top favorites. Honestly, I’m not watching any design TV shows right now. We haven’t had a ton of time for TV lately, but it seems like I have TONS of catching up to do! I’ve never seen an episode of Home Again w/ the Fords, but I’ve heard nothing but good things. Leanne is so talented! Maybe I need to poll the audience for their favorites and make a list when I finally get some free time to catch up. I’m sure you are much more “in the know” about design TV than I am. Haha! I always zip tie and hide my lamps cords because they drive me insane, and if I’m shooting for editorial purposes, if I catch a corner or peek of one- I’ll usually remove it. I feel like the photographer in you can relate :) Hope you’re having a wonderful day, Anne! xo
