People often ask me, “Where do you get your ideas for designs?” Sometimes I work with a beloved item my client brings to me, or a piece of artwork. Often, I’m inspired by the location of the home, which is what I want to share with you today.
Here are a few images of beautiful locations, and interiors that could be inspired by those locales, using materials, colors, and fabrics that might be pulled right out of a photo.
This coastal Malibu living/dining room below could have been inspired by the image above, with a sea-green pendant light matching the color of the water at the edge of the beach, and light-colored seating reminiscent of sand and clouds.
A forest-inspired living room below could have been inspired by the image above, featuring reddish, dark wood furniture and flooring, moss-green fabrics, and fantastic pendant lighting that resembles a lens-flare from sunlight.
The mountain-based living room below could have been inspired by the image above, featuring white walls and silver ring lights reminiscent of snow alongside the dark brown cladding the furniture and feature wall. The sky’s reddish-brown color reminds me of the modern fireplace and the furniture’s exotic wood patterning.
