Living Room Inspiration

Ever since I read the Domino: The Book of Decorating, I have been collecting home decor images and tucking them neatly away for inspiration. It has also been a good exercise for me because I think I have a little bit of A.D.D. when it comes to decorating; I seem to like a little bit of everything and my house ends up looking like a random garage sale. Anyway, stashing pictures is helping me pin point my decorating style because I'm beginning to see a pattern among all the images. I seem to be drawn to clean, modern spaces with a splash of vintage/bohemian flare. The image above is one of the most recent additions to the aforementioned inspiration folder. There is something about those white Ikea shelves adorned with all those brilliant globes that makes my heart go pitter-patter.

I have pretty much the same inclination for mismatched/clean lines...I've always called my style: andy warhol meets pier one.

I adore the accumulation of Globes on with the white shelves it gives the top a playful silouhetter...maybe even having lights behind them would make wicked shadows on the wall.

The Domino book is on my wish list!! Yay for decorating!!!

Let's make a date and go to Borders and flip through design books and magazines. I'm looking for a "mantel scape" inspiration.

You SERIOUSLY need to come visit me... I can't look at my boring house anymore!

Loved your moving announcement. I know what you mean about mixed likes--though I don't think your house looks random but I think its a funny way to say it. I like the color boxes, I've seen that on bookshelves and I like it!
