Recently, I was asked by House Beautiful to participate in a blogger’s feature on inspiring green spaces from the pages of House Beautiful magazine. The assignment: Share how a “green” space has inspired you in your designs, work, or blog posts.
Well, there is SO much to be inspired by in the pages of House Beautiful and on their website, but I chose the image above that I had blogged about before here. I have to say I was VERY flattered to be asked and now even more so that the feature is up and I see the other bloggers that were included. There is quite a nice collection of images and insights from the bloggers who chose them…
Maria Killam, a color expert and blogger at mariakillam.com, chose this lovely living room that ran on the cover of the October 2010 issue. I can see why! I love the mix of ethnic prints and modern art. Plus, the light in this room amazing….
Matt Armendariz, food photographer and blogger at mattbites.com, chose this gorgeous kitchen with a green gingham ceiling. He says, “If I had my dream come true, it’d be this kitchen, featuring the happiest of bright greens in shades of pea and emerald.”
I too love gingham ceiling stenciling. I once worked with avery daring designer who upholstered her very large beamed ceiling with a tiny green gingham. It was amazing! She also had me stencil gingham on cabinets, doorways, and furniture….among other things. You can see some examples here.
