I’ve Been Inspired!

Do you know how you sometimes see something and it just inspires you?  All of a sudden everything just clicks?  All you want to do is start working on it immediately while you have it in your head?  Whether it’s art and you know what to paint or you’re tackling decor and you understand all the color and pattern choices and how they work together… something sparked.

This week, Kate from Centsational Girl posted a photo from a store in Savannah called One Fish Two Fish.

I immediately fell in love.  It’s pretty much everything I ever wanted in our bedroom without realizing it.  Something about the colors just gets me amped up but calm at the same time.  It just feels so fresh and clean but at the same time, there isn’t anything dull about it.  In fact, it’s quite the opposite.

Is it lame that I still get giddy when I see it?  No joke, I just stared at this for five minutes.

Time to get back on track.  This room – the colors the textures, the patterns… it all clicked.  So, I pinned it.  Then I emailed Joe in the sheer panic of finding something so great and said something along the lines of “BEDROOM!?!”.

Eloquent, I know.

Regardless of my skills with the English language, Joe was on board.  I am so lucky to have him because when I get an idea and run with it (and I’m stubborn so that doesn’t help), he not only supports me but runs right next to me.  Like the time I wouldn’t rest until we found an ampersand for our wedding (Joe and I went to many stores before buying the foam board and DIYing it).  Or that time I wouldn’t give up until I found our library card catalogs and we trekked to Pennsylvania.

Anyway, this is the color scheme we’re going to go for in our bedroom.  I am so pumped that I’m going out tonight to grab spray paint, paint swatches, and crisp lamp shades.  Wild, I know.

Have you been inspired by anything recently?  Do you have any wild weekend plans?

    :) My bedroom inspiration came in part from Centsational Girl, too! I love those colors! In fact, our living room is gray and apple.

    Our wild weekend plans involve finishing our dressers and finally, finally moving them back inside! Yay for having clothes all in one place!
