It’s been snowing in Tulsa all day and it’s the perfect Christmas movie on, coffee brewing, blog in a blanket kind of day. I was inspired by a lot of images this week and here are a few of my favorites. I hope something here inspires you, too!

View more on my  Pinterest “Design Inspiration” board and see previous week’s saves here. 

THE HOLIDAY.

Do you follow Osborn Interiors on Instagram? I came across this account a couple years ago and it literally stopped me in my tracks because her home looks exactly like Iris’ from The Holiday. The inside is just as charming. @osborninteriors

STOVE WITH A VIEW.

I’m seeing more and more vent hoods layered over windows and when done right (like this!), I’m loving it. How fun to watch the kids play while working on dinner? Shared by@katemarkerinteriors. Architecture by @momentdesign_architecture. Build by @tartanbuilders.  Design by @katemarkerinteriors.

MIXED METALS.

Since coming across Grand Traditions Homes, I continue to be blown away by all their projects. This kitchen is a beautiful showcase of mixing finishes, and adding a pop of color. I also love how they laid the waterfall island over a planked wood island. So many beautiful details. By @grandtraditionhomes.

WHAT DREAMS ARE MADE OF.

Another kitchen. Another vent hood over windows. I can’t get enough. I mean, look at the size of that island! Design by @eg_interiors Build by @cupic_custom_homes.

 

Peer in.

I have my sights set on a new patry door and am loving this double door situation. Beautiful wood tones throughout this kitchen My pantry would need a little… sprucing… though if I were to add window-paned pantry doors. Shared by @smpliving. ​Photo by @sylvieli.  Design: @blancmarineliving

DON’T TOUCH THIS.

This whole set-up may be a little too museum-like to work in my house (ahem, two kids) but man do I love it. Using two, what look to be block-like coffee tables, to essentially create a console is an affordable hack anyone could use! By @shelbygirard. Shared by @ashleytstark.

LET THE OUTSIDE IN.

I’m drawn to show-stopping restaurant interiors and often choose where to eat based 70% on how the inside looks and 30% based on the menu. This one is, unfortunately, over 5200 miles away from me so I won’t be visiting anytime soon but it’s definitely on my list. (This one is currently temporarily closed due to Covid-19. Prayers for all the restaurant owners and workers this year. It’s been a tough one.) Shared by @stefanisteinla. Photo by @andreannu of @palmenhausbrasserie.

 

Each week, I save a catalog of beautiful homes and rooms I come across. I like to use Sunday to reflect back on what I loved and how i can implement it into any of my own projects. 

There is so much talent out there! Which one of these is your favorite? 

CHRISTMAS SPIRIT.

Doesn’t this look magical? Something extra nostalgic about the tree atop a Wagoneer. Shared by @beckiowens from @atlantahomesmag.

curated.

This new take on subway tile caught my eye. The color variation and imperfect shapes make it look more curated. Shared by @all.sorts.of. Photo by @jess_isaac.

where’s hugh?

The Holiday is one of my top two favorite movies – I watch it on repeat all year and this photo from @a.cotswold.lifestyle makes me assume Iris’ kitchen got an upgrade. I’m not typically drawn to stone on the interior but I have all the heart eyes for that wall. And the vent hood. And the oven. And. And. And. Photo by @amberinteriors.

steel my breath away.

Quite a few of the images I saved this week involved black steel-framed doors and i especially love this wall of arched doors leading outside. Can’t you just imagine opening them all up for an indoor/outdoor party? Well, when we can do that again. Design/build by @grandtraditionhomes. Furnished by @jessicalagrange.

 

Au Café.

I can hardly believe this is part of a one-bedroom apartment in Manhattan. Looking at it, I imagine French cafe music playing and chocolate croissants in the oven. Shared by @housebeautiful. Design by @crystalsinclairdesigns. Photo by @seanlitchfield.

mountain high.

This imagine literally stopped my scrolling. It hardly looks real! I am not one for cold weather – give me the beach and the sun – but this might get me to the mountains. I love how they brought the outdoors in here and kept the furnishings and textiles totally neutral to highlight the mountain view. Shared by @westofmain. Design by @victoriahaganinteriors.
