Looking for inspiration....

As we are taking over our new home at the end of August; i am flat out finding pictures from my files and tearing out pictures from magazines of ideas and things i would like for the home. I have already decided on exterior colours and how we will structure the garden. I am doing a mood board for both the exterior and interior which i will share with you once i have completed the looks. These photos today inspire me not just through the colours used but the rustic simplicity of design. I love the photo above for the choice of having lots of different forms of lighting, rather than them all matching. I don't think i would choose this for our home but i love it anyway.
An exterior shot for inspiration.
I love the single pendant light over the dining table in this shot.
This shot from Cabbages and Roses is quite formal, but would certainly suit the house.
I am so excited about doing our new home; and cant wait to start. Well in the mean time i have to settle with planning and organising everything before the big day when we take over. This weekend i will be busy sorting things out at home. I will be bringing lots and lots of things into the store that i will no longer have room for. So keep an eye out on my blog as i will be featuring lots of these items from home. Have a great weekend everyone.x

Provence is always an inspiration for me and it looks like you are leaning that way. We just returned from our trip to the South of France and got to absorb and capture many images that inspired us. Beautiful images you've selected!

I love the rustic quality of these images... I'm so obsessed with interiors that speak of authenticity lately! I was just at Eco Outdoor looking for stone - have you checked out their stuff? So raw and beautiful.
