inspired home: jan

If you are a follower of this blog, you have seen my house a million times over. Probably not all at the same time, but most of these photos will be familiar. Interestingly enough, I have received a substantial amount of email requests from devoted followers requesting that I do an inspired home edition of my own house.

I could do an entire post of this fruit basket filled with different produce combinations...

Remember the post on this orange rug? From Trace Mayer Antiques?

Love it!

The teapot below is an example of aptware which an entire post was devoted to.

That tapestry is fabulous! One of the prettiest I've ever seen! But I have found a painting I'd rather have, so it's for sale… Email me if you are interested!

Frances Palmer inspired me to post about her pottery, and ultimately to purchase this charming pitcher...

Next we move into the living room…

Still my favorite Pierre Frey fabric!

The doorway to the left of the fireplace goes through the Butler's Pantry into the office… And the doorway to the right goes through a hallway with a powder room on the left and the Master bedroom on the right...

I have big plans for the Butler's Pantry…

Wallpaper, beams on the ceiling, light fixture - not any time soon, but the ideas are all there!

The dining room…

Slipcovers are currently being made for these dining room chairs. They will bring a much needed happy and cheerful vibe to the room. I've always thought this room felt like a Haunted House. .. Is it the chandelier? Hmmm...

I am not sharing the upstairs because, I promise you, it's not very inspiring. I have grand ideas of course. I'd love to replace the carpet with hardwood floors, and I have beautiful fabrics and wallpapers all organized in bags and pull them out regularly for fun. I am a nervous wreck that by the time I can follow through with anything up there, everything I have picked out will be discontinued! (That has happened!)

Of course I would love to design and decorate without a care in the world, however I also realize that if I never did another thing, I would be eternally grateful and completely happy.

At this point, I am very content with the main level updates I continue to work on, and I look forward to doing room by room upstairs in the years to come. Let's face it, I will be decorating this house forever. I used to look forward to the day when I would be "finished" ~ ha! I have realized over the years that the day will never come. It is my passion and my hobby and it brings me an unusual amount of joy and satisfaction. And I love sharing every step of the way with you!
