LOVE IT! Inspiration

Although this isn't something I would necessarily duplicate in my own home, I absolutely LOVE IT! Check out all that pattern and color. (This is from HGTV's Sarah's House with designer Sarah Richardson.)

What do you think, Goldilocks? Is it too much, too little or just right?

Talk about creating a bright, bold, active space. It's super happy. I mean, what a room to wake up to! It reminds me of how scared most of us are to use lots of color and lots of pattern in one space. How many of us live in solid color rooms with solid color furniture accented with solid color pillows plus maybe one patterned one? It's sad and yet we all do it. What are we all afraid of? 

I think this room is beautiful and I want to keep it as an inspirational reminder to be bold in our new home. Obviously not every room needs to be this intense in pattern or color, but in the right area it can really bring a house or room to life. 

It just makes me can I mimic this in my home on my scale with my budget? I'll let you know when I figure it out.

Until next time...


  1. Did they kill a polar bear for that fur?

  2. I'm with my hubs, the fur throw has got to go... and the rug is too much for me. Take those out and I think I could dig the room! yay for finding inspiration though... ;)

  3. Focus on the WHOLE picture...not every individual item. The WHOLE picture :)

  4. OK. Tried got worse. Looks like a Cracker Barrel type Bed & Breakfast. You know, the one where old folks stay in.

    Just sayin..
