Inspiration comes in a variety of avenues for me.
There are seasons when I feel every sense literally bombarded with it and there are seasons (like recently) when inspiration runs a little dry. This blog post by Holly Mathis (I just discovered her blog) is so incredibly inspirational to me. It reminds me why I love interiors, especially residential interiors and why it IS important to make your nest a pleasant place to live.
Here is my favorite excerpt from the post:"Living is Never Temporary. Even if you are renting and in a place for a short time, it is still great to do things to make the space feel like home. It can be depressing to “put your life on hold” for a year. Instead I suggest unpacking your books, sewing some drapes out of inexpensive fabric and getting on with living, whether is a temporary address or not..... Because that is why we decorate, not to impress others or keep up with trends but to inspire and nurture ourselves and our families. To live with joy."

I am so inspired. I hope you are too. :)
