Curated Kravet Inspiration Board

One of my favorite fabric lines, Kravet, just came out with a line of furniture and accessories, Curated Kravet:unique pieces hand selected from the global design market, offered made-to-order or in-stock and ready to ship…”

Since I have a gazillion things going on at the moment and my brain is on overload, I wanted to wind down and get some creativity flowing by throwing together a little inspiration board. Here is one I made of some fun pieces from the new Curated Kravet line:

Kravet

Bao Foo Dogs

Sagano Branch Table Lamp

Sergeant Console

Poppy Velvet Pillows

Sandrine Chaise – Velvet

Raja Aqua Wallpaper

Wildflower 5 Art

Wildflower 3 Art

Collins Acrylic X-Bench

Mod Bianco Chair

Kravet Curated is available for purchase through a designer, so contact me if you are interested in any of the pieces.

Pink + White

The Cherry Blossoms reached their peak this past weekend, which means there is a lot of pink + white across the region. I’m moving to California in a few weeks, so I’m trying to savor the changing seasons + the little things I know I will miss here in metro DC. On my bucket list is: Georgetown Cupcake (the Bethesda location, because there is no way I’m dealing with the Georgetown location tourist madness), Gravelly Point (been there a gazillion times, but it’s my favorite), and to eat as much BBQ as possible because I’m scared they won’t have legit Carolina/Virginia BBQ in California (Texas BBQ does not count).

Here’s a little inspiration board of pink + white home accessories.

Here are some other inspiration boards I have made. What color should I do next?

A podcast I listen to, Around the Table, has a segment called “Read, Watch, Listen, Follow.” I thought it would be a fun idea to start doing this as well at the end of posts, instead of “Best Of” posts I have previously been doing.

Spring Has Sprung

Happy Monday! It’s sunny out and today is opening day for Major League Baseball which makes me a very happy lady. Here’s a rainbowy inspiration board of furniture and decorative accessories from around the web to brighten your day (not to all be used in one room [unless you want a seizure]). I love doing these collages–I already have a green one, I think I might continue making them in other colors.

(I also have a few more inspiration boards/collages on The DC Ladies. Check them out here.)

It’s the Most Wonderful Month of the Year

March

I have approximately 7,468 things I should be doing right now–my thesis, scanning my portfolio work to put online (Hey! Anyone want to hire me? Looking for a full time interior designer position this May post graduation). So naturally the logical thing to do right now is make a March inspiration board.

Not sure about y’all, but I am o-v-e-r winter. I am really hoping to find a job in California so that I never have to live through winter again (and be near my sister, of course). The thought that rolls around in my head all winter is “I just have to make it through February.” Being that tomorrow is March 1st, and I am tired of gray, dirty snow, I thought I would make a spring/ green themed inspiration board.

I love March for many reasons–besides the fact that it is my birthday month (and that really isn’t even a factor because I don’t like making a big deal out of my birthday), the first day of Spring is in March, daylight savings begins in March (yay!), sometimes (not this year) Easter is in March (I will never be too old for an Easter basket, no matter what my parents say).

So here is a few fun green decorative items, listed in no particular order.

Love Bird by Stray Dog Designs

J Bright Letter Throw Pillow by Land of Nod

Velvet Wingback Chair by Anthropologie

Villa Napkin by Anthropologie

Woven Raffia Frames by Serena and Lily

Jungle Diamond Cushion by Furbish

Wire Basket by Clever Spaces

Sinnlig Crisp Apple Scented Candles by IKEA

Astro Sage Wool Micro Hooked Rug by Dash & Albert

Plus some items that didn’t make it onto the board:

Epic Battle Wallpaper by Flavor Paper

Solvinden Solar Powered Light by IKEA

Flora Inlay Mirror by Anthropologie

I also made a similar board for The DC Ladies which will be posted later this week. Check the link in a few days to get the sources for all the items below.
