Inspiration Pictures

One of the things we started doing right after we knew we’d be buying our house was to collect inspiration pictures in a Google Notebook (a great tool apparently being phased out). We knew we’d have a lot of work to do, but we also knew that meant crafting each room exactly to our liking. Recently, I was looking back through some of the images and was struck by how similar some of our projects turned out to be.

For instance, we picked these for our kitchen:

And here’s what we came up with:

From the all-white cabinets and beadboard to the schoolhouse light fixtures, it’s funny how much actually translated into our final product.

And here’s a few of our inspirations for the living room:

And here’s our living room:

We really liked the neutral colors in the top two pictures, the framed photo groupings and the good use of black, and we tried to carry those things over into our space, too.

Finally, a picture that inspired our bedroom change:

    I LOOOVVEEEE your house! It is absolutely amazing and you should be very proud. It’s funny because the renovations that I’ve done and plan to do on my new house are so similar to yours. Being I have the exact same colors for the living spaces, this has been a huge inspiration to me. I also have a galley kitchen and wasn’t sure what to do with it and now I have a vision…so thanks!

    Just inspirational. It really gives me much hope to all that were doing to our 1912 bungalow. We live in another state and are remodeling on vacations and from afar. I browse through before and after pictures just to remind myself that the any progress is progress. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Thank you SO much for posting these photos. Quick question for you on the kitchen. It looks like you have a door at the end of your beautiful galley, similar to our (not so beautiful) galley. Is that a window above the door? Is that something that was already there, or did you put that in? I think it would be an interesting touch.

    Love what you’ve done! It looks fantastic!
