Bloggy Inspiration

This week I had to search for blogs that inspired me.  The first one I came across was Yanko Design.  They have some fun and funky items that they post.  Here is one example of "A Green, Green Bed." It's got lights above your head, speakers to listen to music and a flower box so ivy can grow up and over the bed!  Pretty neat!
I found Desire to Inspire.  They have some very interesting room designs that use color and light very well.  My favorite part of this blog is the unique light fixtures they showed.  Like this one that is a whole bunch of desk lamps put together to make a chandelier type overhead light.
 I have always been a fan of using natural elements in design.  2Modern had some terrific furniture that combined modern elements with natural materials. Here are a couple of my favorites.

Stained glass has always been a favorite design element of mine.  I found Go Erie that has a fabulous stained glass window that I just loved.
So, these are some of the things that inspired me this week.  Next week....residential inspiration.


  1. Now that stained glass window is inspiring.

  2. I am also a fan of the natural elements, to me it helps make a room more inviting. I really like that table in the picture very outdoorsy, without being overbarring !

  3. likedn the stain glass window but found the rest too modern for me

  4. We prefer the more comfortable look of furnishings. Those that invite you to prop up your feet and not worry about things. These looks are interesting. Do especially like the stained glass
