Dare to Live: Unique Interior Design Touches

Your home speaks volumes about you — it should be a true reflection of your life lived, presenting pieces that highlight your personal history and your passions. Are you a music lover, art aficionado or wine connoisseur? Showcase your collections with a scene-stealing display worthy of your treasures. Do you have a family heirloom that holds a special place in your heart? Make it a centerpiece for your surroundings, as well, so that you can appreciate it every day. By infusing your abode with items that are distinctly, 100 percent you, you’ll feel more at home than ever.

Think outside the box with spaces that may go underused in your home; they can become the ideal backdrop for flaunting unique touches. This front living room gets a new lease on life with an homage to the homeowners’ love of reading (note the intriguing sculpture made of manuscripts), plus the pièce de résistance: a log-burning fireplace that blazes brightly every day of the cold season. This sitting room now knows a greater purpose as the perfect place to curl up with a good book.

Vintage Pierre Cardin dining chairs reupholstered in plush peacock teal velvet? Check. Roomy heirloom dining table designed for collecting a crowd? Check. Whimsical bicycle sculpture that sparks conversation? Bien sûr! Make every meal more memorable and every occasion even more special by creating a purposeful dining room you and your family with want to return to time and time again.

A hand-sewn kimono hanging in a breakfast room? Why not, we say! Celebrate your heritage by purposely placing heartfelt objects throughout your home. By displaying this exceptional item as a cherished piece of art in a conspicuous place, this family gets a beautiful reminder of who they are every day they gather for their morning meal.

Imagine walking past a formal dining room table and your eye catches an intriguing vignette. A sculptural worship piece, flickering candles and a bright fresh floral impart an intentional design that enchants everyone who enters your home, even in a space you don’t utilize every day.

The Inspired Interiors team revels in helping you discover and display pieces throughout your home that will bring you joy throughout the years. Get in touch to learn how we can help transform your surroundings into a space that truly tells the tale of you.

Dare to Live: Creative Kids’ Rooms

When it comes to designing rooms for the little ones in your life — from children’s bedrooms and bathrooms to dedicated play areas — it’s tempting to go by the book (and by “book” we mean the ubiquitous home design catalogs that everyone receives like clockwork). We’re here to dare you to live beyond the ordinary and infuse the spaces your kids live in every day with surprising touches that will inspire budding imaginations, encourage calm and rest when needed and spark a sense of fun!

Rev Up Your Routines

Have trouble getting your kids up and at ’em before school or persuading them to go to sleep at night? By giving them a space that makes them excited about the day while also offering a cozy, comforting place to relax, unwind and drift off after their busy day, you’ll boost their energy, confidence and sense of security.

With a few touches of whimsy — think a slide extending from your child’s top bunk for an energetic start to the morning, a swing chair that beckons for quiet afternoon reading sessions and a dreamy bedding ensemble that will bring about sweet dreams — your kids will want to start the day off right and wind down when it’s time for lights out. In essence, create a space for your kids that will enhance their daily routine and that they’ll actually want to call their own.

Small Spaces for Big Fun

Do you have a small space in your home that could be put to better use, perhaps a mudroom or an empty guest room? By dedicating this area for play and fun for your kids, you’ll free up the other, more high-profile places in your home for more adult activities.

Add a flatscreen, a futon and some cushy ottomans for a kid-sized movie theater. Set up easels and (washable!) paints for a mini art studio. Build an indoor tent for next-level sleepovers. Your house is sure to be the preferred neighborhood spot for play dates!

The Inspired Interiors team loves dreaming big for you, your family and your surroundings. Let’s collaborate to create spaces where you and your children will make the memories to last a lifetime.
