Virtual Inspiration: Desire to Inspire

by Shelby Adamson

As designers we are continually looking for inspiration, and we tend to set the bar high when it comes to interiors and their aesthetic beauty.  Recently we stumbled upon this beautiful blog, Desire To Inspire, and we cannot stop looking!  Kim & Jo are design aficionados that created the blog together (even though Kim lives in Canada and Jo in Australia, and they have never actually met in person).  They feature beautiful installation photos of work by designers and architects from around the globe.  Here we share a few of our favorites:

Modern Cabin: A Step By Step Guide

By: Shelby Adamson

It’s that time of year. We’re craving the warm embrace of woodsy log cabins, roaring fires, cozy flannel blankets, and of course hot chocolate. But who says we have to sacrifice style? We’ve curated the perfect pieces to take you away to the modern cabin of your dreams.

antlerchandelier

What’s a cabin without a chandelier made out of antlers? The chrome finish on this one elevates it from drab to chic.

staghornplanter

Don’t let the colder months be completely grey. Bring in a little green to keep things lively with this live edge staghorn fern planter.

liveedgebed

Speaking of live edge, this bed is reminiscent of wood grain cabin walls, but with a simple yet sexy update.

coffeetable

And who says wooden finishes have to be dark? This reclaimed Douglas fir coffee table is coated with a layer of silver that enhances the character of the wood.

leatherchair

Oak and leather combine in this beautiful chair. Unlike grandpa’s lazy boy, this chair will age beautifully and never go out of style.

hideottoman

 

A hide rug is a hallmark of a luxury log cabin. This hair on hide ottoman not only adds texture and warmth, but also provides a great place to prop your feet up after a long hike.

hudsonbayblanket

Warm, cozy, and classic. Hudson Bay blankets are a great way to add a pop of color to wood tones.

rug

The rich red of this handwoven flatweave rug says “woodland cabin” but the contemporary pattern says “fresh and modern” in the best possible way.

Clean lines, warm colors, and updated fixtures and finishes keep the comfort of a traditional log cabin, but give it a much needed makeover.

Little Treasures: Curated Details

By: Stephanie Andrews

A lot of times we focus on the larger items when talking about making a house feel like a home, but it’s really all in the details. The little treasures you put on display are what make your home distinct and true to your personality and style. Pick up the item you’re considering and ask yourself: is this authentically me? Do I find it beautiful? Does it feel like it was designed just for me? It’s a tough litmus test, but in the long run it will ensure that everything you select for your home is meaningful.

treasure composite

1. Tasche wall pocket. We love the earthy tone of this leather.
2. Devour tea towel. The simple design combined with the sentiment behind this tea towel is perfection.
3. Serving board. You can’t go wrong with soft, curved wood.
4. Amazonian standing pot. Organic textures and materials are the ultimate inspiration.
5. Turkish bath towels. It’s good to add a little luxury here and there, like these 100% organic cotton towels from Turkey.
6. Teddy hook. Functional items don’t have to be uninspiring.
