Style Elements: Indoor Edition
Yesterday I covered all of the style’s I love and would want/need in my backyard and around my house. Today I’m moving things indoors and going over all of the elements I’ve always dreamed of having. Here is what made the list:
& Hopefully it looks into the backyard.
It’s just so charming, and when I’m washing dishes
I’d much rather look outside, then look at a wall.
This is a MUST! We currently have a make-shift walk in pantry at our apartment now,
where we have two huge shelves, which are loaded to the max with food.
Wooden Pantry Door
And to close off that walk-in pantry, I’d love a door like this one.
I’ve actually been looking for one for months now on Craigslist, but I
haven’t found anything within a reasonable price range.
Wooden Farmhouse Table In The Dining Room
A table that is country looking & rustic… That’s right down my alley.
Plus, this table sits at least 10 people, which is perfect.
Greys, Browns, Greens & Blues (+ a little orange)
All of the colors I’m drawn too. All calm and relaxing, yet nature inspired.
Natural Textures (Raw Wood, Woven Baskets, Jute Rugs, Twine, Twigs, Nuts, Wheat, Flowers… etc)
I believe in bringing the outdoors inside. It just calms me.
Wire Baskets For Organization
I really love organization baskets that look great.
These wire baskets are really popular at the moment, but I love their rustic charm.
Travis had a wood burning fireplace growing up, and now we have one in our
apartment that we love to use in the winter time. We both want a stone
fireplace in our future house. This one is gorgeous, but most likely out of
our price range when we do go house hunting. We’ll probably end up with a brick
one, or none at all. I see a DIY stone fireplace makeover in our future…
Open Concept Stair Way & Second Floor Hallways
I love stairs that are open, and you can see from the first floor.
Travis & I both have allergies, so wood floors are a MUST.
The only places we probably wouldn’t have wood floors is in the basement,
the bathrooms and possibly the bedroom/offices. But the living room and
kitchen would have to be wood. Plus, they look great, so no complaints here!
Stripes! – Somewhere
I’d love stripes somewhere, whether it’s in a hallway, bathroom or future nursery, just somewhere. :)
Windows, Windows & More Windows
Right now we feel like we live in a dungeon in our basement apartment.
We want tons of windows in our house. Bring in as much natural light as possible.
Light & Bright.
I’m still not giving up on my wish of having a grey sectional.
Our current/new living room set will probably make it’s way to
Travis’ man cave one day, and I will get my grey sectional ;)
Rustic Basement Bar
This is all for Travis’ Man Cave. Rustic, Country & Booze.
Brushed Nickel Hardware
I’m not into brass, bronze, gold, oil-rubbed bronze or any of that.
I’m into silver, brushed nickel and stainless steel.
White Trim & Crown Molding
Going along with that Light & Bright theme.
What style elements for the indoors are you loving?
