This month, Melissa Michaels' new book The Inspired Room: Simple Ideas to Love the Home You Have
launched, and since I'm a a great admirer of Melissa's blog
and sensibilities, I can't wait to get a copy.

The Inspired Room: Simple Ideas to Love the Home You Have

Within it are ideas to create a home with your
own personal style, and we are invited to
discover the impact of simple changes & first impressions
(like the amazing wide stripes in Melissa's entry below!).

Gray and White Striped Entry Wall - The Inspired Room

I love how Melissa created a place to gather
in her efficient kitchen below with the
addition of inviting, comfy chairs.

Leather Sofa - Living Room Textures - The Inspired Room

Her new book encourages us to take a closer look at texture,
and you'll notice in her dining room below, she mixed
finishes beautifully and (seemingly) effortlessly.

Summer Dining Room - The Inspired Room

As for my own personal inspired rooms?

Taking my cue from Melissa, who says we don't need hefty budgets
or peerless DIY skills, here are two of my favorite spaces I
tackled in our last place...a breakfast area and guest room:

Peace to you right where you are.

  2. Love the book cover so if thats any indication I am sold! Her house looks like a pretty but most important, inviting and happy home. Thanks for sharing....hope you aren't working too hard and that you are enjoying every minute (well almost:)

  3. I like the maps on the wall. That's what I call inspiring! I love to travel. Perfect combination with the purse below :) I think that every person should find their own way to decorate so that their home is cozy, comfortable and clean. I can't wait to get a copy too!
