For many, checking out Pinterest has become a morning ritual. Today, we’re sharing eight delightful Pinterest finds that grabbed our attention recently. From the entryway to the closet door, there are interesting ideas around every corner. We hope you are inspired by these diverse decor images.
Maps just got framed and are used to create a very successful worldly look in this home’s foyer.
Aren’t these colors great companions? Layered rugs are so “in” right now and these are gorgeous in deep pink and gold.
Better Homes & Gardens picked this as their 2015 Color Palette of the year. Looks like we have another “must try” gray to add to our list of background colors for the wall.
This one grabbed us at first sight. We love velvet and this range of pillows is jewel-tone perfection. Just look at that red beauty.
Which is more perfect? Is it the pink jewelry drawer or those fabulous slanted shoe shelves? Can’t decide? Then, perhaps you can use both ideas in your dream closet.
What a clever idea! Paint the closet door and add all sorts of hangers. This is a lovely way to display tomorrow’s outfit and accessories.
We are captivated by this awesome party setting. Hanging those totally feminine pink parasols from the ceiling is a brilliant idea.
This sweet bedroom in shades of pink gives new meaning to the phrase “under starry skies.” That wallpaper on the ceiling is a fantastic finishing touching.

Whether you have an actual vintage kitchen or a modern one for which you crave a little vintage good looks, it’s easy to decorate with bits and pieces from the past. No treasured collections to display, then search for new home decor accessories that just look like they could have been handed down through generations to you. We hope you enjoy and are inspired by the kitchens below:
Soften kitchen decor with fresh flowers. Get instant impact with a bouquet of pink bloom. Easy does it. An armful of similar blooms can be beautiful tucked into a vase.
A rustic, slightly industrial kitchen vignette sets the tone for this vintage kitchen with white walls.
A narrow shelf above the corner windows is a nice place to stash a collection of white vases. Vintage fabric pattern is a charming contrast.
Vivid color accents this vintage kitchen. Casual bouquets of mixed flowers from the garden can brighten a room immediately.
Collected treasures are used to style these shelves and the chest top below. Show off your collections rather than hide them away behind cabinet doors.
Open and airy, this dining area at the end of the kitchen is the perfect spot to start the day. We love the repurposed chest that create a nice little nook for a bench.
A collection of mixing bowls and tureens is just the thing for these open kitchen shelves.
Going all white can bring drama to open shelves in the kitchen. Iron shelf brackets add a touch of feminine style to the shelving above.

Pops of green often show up in industrial loft spaces. Here, it’s strewn about with restraint.

This stylish bath is enveloped in a much more subdued green that could work well for those with a more traditional take on green.
