A Little Inspiration

You don't always have to turn to other homes to get your inspiration. In fact the best ideas and inspiration usually come from hospitality or commercial designs. Hotels, retail stores, restaurants are all amazing places to look and see what you can do with a space. You just have to have a little vision and imagination on how it can be applied in your home.

For example, take this beautiful restaurant located in the Hotel Bachaumont Paris. This gorgeous colour combo paired with these fun feminine prints are an amazing inspiration for a residential dining room setting. To recreate this look you will need.

1) Narragansett Green HC-157 & Chantilly Lace OC-65

2) Add a bold print. I love these curtain panels from Pier One, they would pair perfectly with the rich green, as well are reasonable in price. Photo credit and link here for these curtains.

3) To add the art deco element of the restaurant to your home place some of these amazing soft blue chairs around the table. Their cool shape and amazing details will work perfectly with the paint and curtains. Photo credit and link here https://www.structube.com/en/dining-room/chairs/page/6.

4) Wrap it all together with some sparkle and gold accents. Urban Barn has lots of options like this simple mirror, photo credit and link here https://www.urbanbarn.com/product/connelly +wall+mirror.do.  Or check out Ikea for fun items like this candle holder.
