Back to the drawing board...

As we've mentioned many times, it always pays off to keep magazine tears & image files of interiors, landscapes & color stories for use in future projects. Besides having an automatic jumping-off point, the inspirations help to curb that "Where do we start???" anxiety.

We recently tackled a BIG move & were delighted to finally put some of our archives to use in our new digs. We are always preaching that family living can be surrounded by high-end design as long as you've got a little smarts... Here is what we did to ensure our dream decor doesn't get that "lived in" look quite so fast. (Pardon the dark pictures, it was 6:00am!)

A beautiful rug hung as a grand focal point in House Beautiful.

Our splurge from a trip to Turkey didn't have a fighting chance on the floor and hangs in a much safer place away from dust bunnies, foot traffic & food spills.

A gorgeous breakfast nook complete with upholstered banquet in Elle Decor.

Our "renter's" version made with a fade & stain resistant fabric, perfect for use around messy guests & family members (of course we would NEVER spill on our own furniture :) .

Now back to the inspiration files for pillow & picture wall ideas - getting items checked off the "honey-do" list!
