Monday Inspirations...

While browsing the internet recently I went over and checked out Decor 8. She was talking about some trends in European decor she's been noticing all over the place. They've been making their mark here as well and actually have been around for a while now. Some of my faves were the industrial lighting (of course), the reclaimed wood trend (think big chunky dining tables) and the handsome, sturdy, Tolix chair. I like industrial designs alot, especially when it's incorporated into a home that balances the coldness with warm,fluffy textures and greenery. Check out some other posts I've done with Industrial design in mind.

The Tolix chairs are my fave of the group. The metal finish works well in a kid friendly environment where food tends to "fly" and they come in so many colors its hard to choose! Here's a few examples and were to shop for the look...
