via Debi TreloarHave you been keeping up with the Blog it Forward mashup? I hope you have been enjoying it as much as I have! I am so happy to be participating today! Victoria over at sfgirlbybay did such a fantastic job not only organizing everyone so well but also, in choosing our post topic!
I am inspired by so many things on a daily basis, I was afraid I wouldn't know where to start. So instead, I decided to share with you a few of my passions...
Interior Design Magazines. Nothing gets my heart racing like a beautifully designed room printed on the glossy pages of a magazine.
Canadian House & Home, House Beautiful, Elle Decor and of course, Martha Stewart.
Stylists and photographers. They set the tone and mood of the pages of our favorite magazines. Selina Lake is one stylist that continually inspires. Her book Bazaar Style was my bible for about a year. I carried it everywhere, just pouring over the beautiful photos. It still has its home on my coffee table two years later.
The photography by the amazingly talented Debi Treloar perfectly expressed Selina's style. I find myself going back to Debi's site over and over again, just drawn to her beautiful images.See that moody photo at the top of the post? It is my favorite photo of hers. These below are faves too.
Kate Spade has made fashion charming with a bit of humor and I like it. However, I could never pass up the glamour of a gorgeous gown from Michael Kors (below).
Breakfast at Tiffany's (below), The Philadelphia Story, How to Marry a Millionaire and Sabrina, just to name a few, were all early sources of inspiration for me.
I've watched each of them (and countless others) trying to study and capture that timeless elegance of Audrey, Marilyn (at home, below), Lauren and Katherine all captured so beautifully.
Thanks for visiting with me here today! It's been so fun sharing my inspirations with you.
Thank you to Deldino for her introduction. Now, it's my turn to introduce you to the next blogger...Design Crush, who will be posting her inspiration tomorrow!
