where to get your inspiration

Inspiration for our homes can come from many sources. So many of us are all over the Pinterest and Houzz craze, and there are still so many books and magazines around to explore and earmark. But if we stop to explore our own surroundings, that too can be amazing ecouragement, both at home and wherever we go.

It's sometimes nice to stop and really look. What feels good? What doesn't feel good? Looking at your own space in a mirror can help you see it differently. I like to do this to see what needs a lift in my own home.

When you look around, take note of the small things. The texture of your throw blanket; the colour of green of all the plants; the curve of your sofa arm...

Here are some great examples of things to look for and cherish, and perhaps to incorporate for your own homes so that your space feels amazing to you.
