Simple Inspiration

Due to a last minute trip to Atlanta yesterday I am behind so the giveaway will be tomorrow. However, I wanted to share these images from West Elm and Pottery Barn. They are both simple but inspiring to me....

So lovely! I was at Market on Saturday and thought of you. Hope the trip was productive.

Given that we both go between Atlanta and Birmingham, if you'd ever like to meet up, I'd LOVE to meet you! (not to sound stalker-like of course).

Hope you had a great trip.
Now you have inspired me to look inside my catalogs, love the look of the drapery panels and the way they create a cozy nook. xo

Calm, that is what comes to mind.

Nice picks, I love how that curtain flows all the way down and pools at the bottom, looks like a waterfall :)

so soothing...I love when my pottery barn catalog comes in the mail...it's as much a treat as my fave design magazines...I love to see what creative things they have come up with and how they utilize their pieces.

Sometimes the simplest are the best...beautiful post!!!

Thanks for sharing!!!!

love the curtained window/seat as well. just a wonderful spot to snuggle. This can just be an instant room for visitors or relatives during sleep overs ..

Just love to have a similar spot here in my home :>

Hi Marianne,

I can't believe I haven't found you earlier. I think your blog is wonderful, and this post is so appealing. Both brands are great and yes, very inspiring.

I look forward to following you.
