INteriorSPIRATION: nyc edition

sometimes interior inspiration (aka INteriorSPIRATION) doesn't have to only come from lavish estates and hard to achieve images in magazines. case in point: a recent visit to nyc, where my friends quaint apartment was filled with tons of inspiring pieces that were effortlessly chic and easy to attain. some favorites included a set of nine framed wall decor in the living room that was made from none other than lace from a fabric store; gold accents such as an ornate mirror and coat hanger with a turquoise painted backdrop; a flowery pillow that embodied femininity and looked perfect in front of the brick wall; as well as a chic take on a cork board - 4 pieces brought together and home to inspiring images & quotes, photos, schedules, and reminders. looks like i just might be adding a few of these images to my vision board...

  1. Oh my! We have the same tastes! Especially painting the walls blue. There's so many shades of blue that I can't decide!

    (I just moved into a new house and have to figure out what I'm painting the walls with in each room)

  4. I really like the contrast of the soft cushions on the bed against the brick wall. Love exposed brick walls in a home, especially in the bedroom :-) The lace artwork is really creative, and love the turquoise walls :-)
