I love feeling inspired. People inspire me. Decorating inspires me. Heck, I've felt inspired looking at the color variations in a broken rock. My hope in life is to inspire others to create something they love, that will bring joy to their home. So I am starting weekly "Decor Inspo" posts, where I share a room with you that I am either designing for someone, with someone, or have dreamed up in my head. The goal is to hopefully inspire others in their home. Along with the design I will share where I found a few of the items, so you can recreate it and make it your own.
This weeks mood board is inspired by a recent trip to visit one of my most favorite people, in my home state of Michigan. Miss Lynds just bought the cutest house you'll ever see in Ann Arbor and we spent some time thinking about how to decorate her new abode. A little fact about the homeowner: she is the worlds best hostess. The kind of gal who will wake up before you and make you homemade pancakes - even though she is gluten free. She will be sure to have your favorite ice cream, go with you to hit up your favorite coffee spot, she is the salt of the earth.
So when thinking about decor in her home, entertainment is key. The girl has a lot of friends. What better place to start than her patio? There is nothing like a Michigan summer and no better place to enjoy it than the "partio". Party patio - I thought it was clever. Let's make it a thing.
Setting the Mood
When thinking about the decor for the partio I wanted to focus on being fun and lighthearted with the feel of chillin' on Lake Michigan. Where people could go and feel comfortable and be surrounded by friends. Of course we had to hide in the maize and blue. I wanted things to look casual and colorful, like you could spill your lemonade and not be worried about getting thrown out. So take a look and let that summertime vibe wash over you!
