Today I’m starting a new segment on the blog sharing my favorite Pinterest finds each month. Pinterest is an endless source of inspiration for me so I thought it would be fun to share my favorites here so my readers can check out my favorite pins too. Let me know in the comments below which is your favorite!
This first photo caught my eye for so many reasons. I love the idea of having extra work space with a bar sink for the special times of year that we host friends and family and all year round too! The finish details on this space by Melanie Turner are so beautiful, I love the way the wood tone works with the hardware finish and the light fabric on the roman shade allows just enough light in to keep the space bright and airy, absolute perfection!

I love the layout of this space because it gives you a lot of countertop space which is so important in the kitchen, but not at the expense of lost storage. The layering of the closed cabinetry with the open shelving is brilliant. I love the idea of keeping some of your more beautiful items out on the open shelving, and putting away the less aesthetically pleasing, but ultimately functional pieces in the cabinet. My favorite part though is the way the stone was run around all four sides of the open niche. It’s all about the details!
There was no detail overlooked in the design of this kitchen. I love absolutely everything about it but my favorite elements are the ones that are repetitive throughout the space. For example, the way the wood from the open shelving is also brought in as a detail around the hood, and the way that the touch of black on the door is tied in again on the range wall countertop. The photo shows a small space, but it is packed with beautiful design elements.
I love having fun with design in laundry rooms. It is one of the spaces in a home where you can get extra creative and bring in colors, patterns and textures that you may not want to incorporate in the main spaces. This laundry room caught my eye because of the perfect shade of blue on the cabinets, but also how that tied in so perfectly to the pattern on the focal wall. The colors in the space work together beautifully.

I’m all about curb appeal and this exterior caught my eye instantly. Although it is a lot simpler than many of the other eye catching exteriors on Pinterest, the details are just enough to make it beautiful. First, I am in love with the paint color on the door, it’s not too gray, it has a little more of a greige feel to it that keeps the space from being too cold. The clean lines on the house numbers and side light bring a more contemporary contrast to a front door and light fixture that lean more traditional. All of these elements work together to create the perfect transitional design.

I love a dutch door more than I can possibly explain. It is at the top of my wish list for things I would love to have in my own home. This image caught my eye because I love the way the paint color on the door works with the brass hardware. The door manages to have perfect contrast with all of the surrounding white paint without coming off as bold or too contrasting. This space is light and bright and I want to move right in!

This is another image that caught my eye because of paint color. This paint color is custom but similar to Benjamin Moore OC-52 Gray Owl. Similar to the image above, the door color provides just enough contrast to pop against the white shiplap and trim, but isn’t too bold to fit into the space. Again, I love the way the color works with the brass hardware.

This pantry is serious goals! These days so much of what we see is painted white, it is actually pretty rare to find rich wood tones in many of the popular designs. This one however, went all in on the wood tones and it looks incredible. Studio McGee managed to find the perfect shade of blue gray paint to keep balance in the space and prevent it from getting too warm. Again, the brass hardware fits perfectly with the color palette.

I kept coming back to this image all month long because I loved it so much. Windows over a kitchen sink are one of my favorite things. I imagine that the windows look over a beautiful back yard which makes doing dishes way more exciting! I love how this space marries the cool and warm tones by bringing in the light gray cabinets but also having the warmer wood tones on the open shelves and the reclaimed beams. The contrast between the rustic look of the reclaimed beams and the more contemporary feel of the shaker style cabinetry is striking.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my first Pinterest favorites post, there are many more to come in the future!
