Ooh, my favorite!

Sources of inspiration

I have a like / hate relationship with Pinterest. It’s become really hard to find images that are surprising and inspiring, so when I do find a setting or style that catches my eye I pull it aside (offline) to make sure I don’t lose track of it. This little vignette here was one of those images, and as much as I love the settee, the eclectic collection of art is what really caught my eye and has been a source of inspiration for weeks.

In the same way that I can’t really connect with Pinterest, I’ve been having a hard time finding really meaningful and inspiring art. I’m just so tired of cheesy prints. If only those Keep Calm prints, and all of their variations, would just die already! As always, there is the matter of what my wallet can handle when looking to collect original works of art (oh yeah, then there’s my fascination with Persian and Moroccan rugs), and as of yet I have no secrets or tips for acquiring on a budget. So for now I will be patient and slowly work to curate a nice little collection with pointed vintage finds and perhaps a few moderate splurges with this image as my offline inspiration.

P.S. For me, the only really and truly best use of Pinterest is from Nina Garcia!
