Three Inspirations: Dining, Entryway & Pantry

1. Dominic Blackmore for Ideal Home | 2 | 3. Chris Everard for Livingetc
It wasn’t until I finished laying out this post and came to start writing that I realised how all three inspirations centred around getting organised. Perhaps it’s something to do with the New Year? Or, more likely, it’s a reflection of my OCD approach to organisation! Either way, these three spaces have me super inspired as I head into the weekend. The first is an excellent example of how to delicately add colour, even when using bright hues. The Tiffany blue school chair breaks the neutral linens that adorn the table, whilst the tomato red pendant draws the eye down to the table creating intimacy in the space. As for the industrial storage unit, well, you wouldn’t have to ask me twice to snap that up! I dream of having a home big enough to take an entryway the size of the one shown above. The patterned paper adds interest to the all-white space and the baskets hide clutter – just what my (much smaller!) entryway needs. Finally, I just had to include this colourful pantry; the perfectly lined up bottles, jars and bags really made me smile. Which space do you like best, friends?

all fabulous, but I'm loving the hallway – probably as I've been thinking how I will be able to bring some life and colour to ours!

Love everything that has to do with organization (a bit of OCD myself..) and the entryway photo has gotten my attention. The white rattan boxes and the tidy way the shoes are placed. And what does the bag do on the floor???? Put it away pronto, hehe!

Vintage industrial, no question! I like the patterned entryway too: not the patern and style, but how organized it is!

My favorite ist the vintage industrial dining – love this combination!

Fantastic inspirations! Our entry way needs a splash of color! All those winter boots look rather boring at home! Thanks for the inspiration!

Love all of these, especially that red pendant light! And my closets and cupboards need a major overhaul…thanks for reminding me ;) By the way, will you be at Alt Summit next year? I'm jealously stalking tweets and will definitely be getting tickets in time for the next one! ~Lily

Thanks Will! I think they're probably rip-offs of PWANPlates, I've spent all day trying to track them down! The search continues, if I do discover them I'll report back ;)
Thanks! Kate x
