Digging for inspiration

A purely inspirational post today. I delivered some accessories to the Miners Cottage today that I am working on and was a little overwhelmed by what has to be done still. So I have returned home to look through some old USB drives that I have photos and images on and these next shots just filled me with so many ideas not only for the cottage but for our own home.
The photo above is just lovely. I still haven't settled on what it is that I like about it so much, all I know for the moment is it jumped out straight away =0)

I LOVE this kitchen. I wish I had a better image to show you this image really does not do this kitchen justice - at all! I would happily cook in this kitchen without any woes I am sure. I really like the rolling pins by the door there, the industrial elements and or course the white...heaven!

It has been so very cold here the last few days and although I am in a singlet top right now as Mic has the fire going so hot, I love the thought of actual open fireplace instead of it being encased in glass, or cast iron. I think the candles here just set the mood beautifully.

This setting suits the temp in our house right now...somewhere by the ocean!
I loved this image as inspiration for the Miners Cottage. Light bright and breezy.
Now this image has been the winner for my flagging inspiration today. I look at this shot and imagine so many decorating ideas for any room in a house, not just the kitchen. I would love to have a kitchen like this. Someday!
Any way I have been re inspired so I will get back to it =0D

  1. Oooh, I 'm loving this last kitchen! Even though I hate to cook I would so figure out how to love it in that kitchen. I love the lighting!

  2. Ness I love all the photos but the last one is my favourite and the range in the photo is a lot like my new one :-)

    A tres bientot,

  3. hi ness... how was i not a follower years ago! so funny... well now i am... dont know how i missed that...hope you are well and had a wonderful weekend xx pam

  4. Hope you get inspired I bet you will!! I love the first picture I could just see myself snuggling up in that room.
    The fire place is gorgeous don't know about all that wood up the wall but gorgeous style, enjoy your day Ness :)

  5. Those are some gorgeous images you have to play around with, Ness!

    I'm positive that you will be able to effortlessly translate them into something which is uniquely "you."

    Big hugs!

  6. I so need a table glass/iron like in the first photo but don't want to pay $1000. for one. I have been looking for 4 years and they are either too small, too big, too expensive!

  7. Gorgeous inspiration pics Ness:) I love the first kitchen with the stable door and those rolling pins on the wall look fabulous:) Hope things are going well for the cottage, can't wait to hear more:) Hope you have a wonderful week sweetie ~ Tina xx

    Love the stable door in the kitchen
    Have a great week

  10. Wow, look at that wood pile. You would never have to leave the house all winter! Just be like a bear and hibernate!
