Inspiring Things

I'm Sherry from Young House Love. Here's one of about ten places that I hoard inspiration. Come on into my crazy mind and make yourself at home! (Psst- I try to link all my photos to the original source whenever possible - so check the link or caption for that info... and please share sources if I have it wrong/can't pin it down!)

Gorgeous wall color for a bedroom with light and tailored furniture.

La Dolce Vita: Color Crush: Turquoise
  • Tees For Your Head

    I love the look of a dark bedroom, and I wake up with the sun. We painted our bedroom a rich chocolate to see if that would help keep me asleep, and it does. But now we're thinking of repainting with a lighter color because it's a bit murky during the day in our north-facing bedroom! Just something to consider.

  • Rebecca Baley Snook

    Looks like my BM Champion Cobalt on our dining room walls. Love your inspiration pic!

  • Meredith Heron

    Orrr you could all ask me as it's my bedroom. The wall colour is St Boniface by Para Paints which was just purchased by Sherwin Williams!!!

  • Sherry @ Young House Love

    Ahh, I love it Meredith! Thanks so much for the info!!!

  • Blanca Garcia

    Yay! Thanks!

I love this use for a leftover baby mattress. So smart!

  • Sarah Carpenter

    Looks more like a twin bed hanging.My left over baby bed mattress sure isn't this big.Or could be mattress out of sleeper in semi

  • Tara Johnson

    I love it! Can see myself reading and having tea! :)

  • Animasaun Gbotemi

    you could keep a close watch on your sleeping baby while writing or reading

  • Brandy Owens

    Sherry, we built a modified version of the plan to fit our leftover crib mattress and it has been my absolute favorite project ever. We're novices but the construction is so straightforward that y'all would have it put together in no time. There's a pic on my Outside board I think!

Really cute homemade magnets from:

How to Make Non-Obnoxious Alphabet Magnets - NEON FRESH
  • Kelsey Myking

    Have you had trouble finding magnets that stick on your stainless fridge? That was such a bummer to discover.

  • Sherry @ Young House Love

    I hear some fridges aren't magnetic and others are ( we have a Frigidaire and they stick well). Hope it helps!

LOVE this elegant but not too serious chair (and the gray-washed wood).

I love this DIY poster tutorial by How About Orange

  • Judith Bowman

    Just what I needed!

  • Meredith Baldwin

    I did this in my kitchen several months ago but when I was done I covered it in clear contact paper. That way if there is a spill of some sort I can just wipe it off.

  • Katie Soule

    Great idea @Meredith Baldwin! I did this with an old dresser I redid; there are so many contact papers out too to make it an easy job with that.

  • Ingrid Fontana

    What a great idea! I wanted to paint in turquoise a wooden table with drawers and cover them with fabric .. but will do so with a mixture of turquoise, wood and fabric ... fantastic!

  • Megan Leonard

    nice idea I am going to do that thank you so much!!

White kitchen dreaminess from:

  • Deana Wood Hendrickson

    Love this white kitchen. White kitchen is my favorite...use to have one. I love the marble the open cabinet drawers...had that too. I'm not complaining....really.

  • Shelley Rowland

    oooooh calcutta marble! Not so sure i spelled it right, but i want it!!!

  • Jami Oscherwitz

    One day, I will have my white kitchen again!!! I SO miss it. I find the dark cabinets incredibly oppressive. I also love the black floor.

  • Mary Burns

    One day I will have these cabinets too, one day!
