10 Pins : Pinterest Inspiration

10 Pins : Pinterest Inspiration - roomfortuesday.comI hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I wanted to kick off the week with a post packed full of Pinterest inspiration. This is the second post in my “10 Pins” series and I really enjoy putting these together! Click through to see what has been inspiring me on Pinterest lately. From bathrooms and kitchens to closets and pet areas, I’ve been saving lots of goodness lately…

#1 // Colorful Books on Balanced Built-In

As you know, we’re adding built-ins to our One Room Challenge space and the above image is inspiring me to style the shelving with LOTS of colorful books. This time around, I’m planning to go heavier on the books with a few complimenting decor accessories. I typically go for the reverse, but I love the texture and color these books add. I especially like the black backed shelving and that feminine curved sofa! The sub crown moulding is also speaking to me in this one. Very pretty!

#2 // Cozy Minimal Villa

This villa is located in Puglia, Italy and you should definitely check out the full tour because it’s nothing short of incredible! It’s the perfect modern and minimal retreat that feels cozy and warm despite the rigid aesthetic. Anyone planning a getaway to Italy?

#3 // Simple Closet

I love the simplicity of this built-in closet. It’s neutral, balanced, and has a very organic feel. I’m also a fan of those herringbone hardwoods peeking out from beneath the rug. Did you notice how shiplap was used to add texture and interest to the upper shelving? Very clever!

#4 // Backyard Terrace

This entire house is stunning, but there is something about this terrace that has me smitten. From the cast fireplace surround to the oversized terra cotta planter filled with olive branches, this entire situation is dreamy. So many little details make this vignette feel very special and calming.

#4 // Cane Built-Ins

I love cane webbing on anything and everything. I want to incorporate it within a credenza or built-in someday. I especially enjoy the tone-on-tone look pictured above. Don’t get me started on that color palette… it’s perfection! Warm wood tones, burgundy & plum, soft blue, hunter green, and brass. The candle styling is also beautifully done.

#5 // Soft Greige Kitchen

This picture is the epitome of timeless. It’s classic, soft, sophisticated, and the millwork / cabinetry is so well crafted. I’m pretty sure that countertop is soapstone! You already know I’m a big fan of that.

#6 // Sophisticated Workspace

What a charming little office or workspace with the best city view! Things I’m admiring? The radiator cover, the antique furniture, the millwork, the grasscloth wallpaper, the art installation, and that insanely beautiful window treatment! There is SO much to appreciate in this space.

#7 // Bright Dining Room

This light and bright dining space has a very European vibe and I’m digging how the organic materials interact…. rattan, limestone, linen, wood, stoneware, and greenery. It’s a beautiful and balanced combination!

#8 // Black and White Bathroom

Another beautiful black ceiling! I wish I would’ve found this image before renovating our previous bathroom, because I really like the application of batten on the ceiling. The texture is really nice and this is how you do timeless subway tile, friends! I also really love the scalloped backsplash.

#9 // Laundry Room Dog Wash

This is making me want to renovate our laundry room ASAP. We’re definitely adding a dog wash and this is providing the very best inspiration. So classic, rich, and beautiful!

#10 // Green & Pink Kitchen Cabinetry

Lastly, this muted green cabinetry with pink shelving is doing it for me. It’s the perfect mix of sassy and sweet. The rustic wood tones play well with the glossy cabinetry and feels eclectic in the best way.

Did you discover anything new? I hope so! Pinterest continues to prove itself as an inspiring resource for me and a great way to uncover talented people and designers. I could spend hours browsing and it’s my favorite thing to do when wasting time traveling (on a flight, in the car, etc). Have a great week and a productive Monday, guys!

  1. Good stuff! The curvy sofa is perfectly petite. Is sub crown the moulding that extends on the ceiling? That Italian place is like an art installation! So stark and beautiful. That Laven kitchen? Whoa. And the other home tours on The Nordroom were amazing. Cloth & Kind have an inspiring portfolio, too. But, that Alice Lane kitchen?! Dead. If the green and pink didn’t get me, the walk-in pantry would. Thanks, as always, for the beautiful inspiration. Happy Monday.

    1. I love that sofa too, and yes- the sub crown is the moulding that travels up onto the ceiling… pretty cool, huh? :) I want that kitchen!!! Whew. So many pretty things to look at, while I’m currently living in a dusty demo mess for the One Room Challenge. haha! Hope you’re having an amazing week! xo

  2. Enjoyed your pins! That outdoor patio, fireplace, to carport is awesome idea! Garages are my least favorite part of a home but this idea is a keeper! And the laundry room with dog wash….adorable! We spend so much time in the laundry room it should be just as functional! Your posts are a delight! Have a great day!

    1. Thank you Danna! I’m so glad to hear that :) I really am looking forward to renovating our laundry room someday because we definitely need a better setup for the dogs! That’s going to be a fun one :)

  3. Hi Sarah,
    I agree with both Peggy and Danna these 10 pins are drool worthy for sure 😉 Love your thought on going heavy on the bookshelves with books and if I can vote for a curvaceous sofa for your new living room too ☺️ I think pin #1 by dering hall is just beyond gorgeous 😍 so excited to see the final reveal in 6 weeks! Have a fab day

    1. Really glad you liked these, Colleen! I bought a curved front sofa, but actually ended up moving it to another room. I love, love, love that sofa in the image though! We’re moving right along and are currently living in a dusty demo mess :) I’m trying to remember it’s “progress” and embrace the temporary filth. Ha

  4. Mmm, I love how moody the styling is in #4! The perfect warm, cozy palette for autumn. I’m doing caned built-ins for my office this winter, but taking it in a different direction. Love all of these pins!

    1. Me too, me too!! Totally agree on the autumn color palette :) Goals for sure! I’d love to see your office once it’s finished… I’m intrigued. Sounds like it will be beautiful! xo
