Did everyone enjoy the weekend?  I pretty much remained low key for most of the weekend.  Did a little clothes shopping and started getting little gifts for the Christmas holidays (yeah, I'm going to try and start early). 

On the home front, Mr. D was busy cleaning all our windows and screens (isn't he the best).  They are spotless and streak-free.  I was busy washing and steaming some curtains in the guest room.

Switching things up for you this Monday with a new series I'd like to call: Rooms that Inspire.  I'm always inspired by interior design and decorating; or simply admiring.  There are many different styles that inspire me to incorporate a similar look to our home.  And, it doesn't have to be big purchases or big items.  A simple throw pillow, accessory or color palette, inspire me to create my own design. 

Check out this week's room inspiration:

While I'm not a fan of the paint color, the front door and Cambria quartz floor with contrasting inlay is beautiful.

Designer Jane Lockhart

This room has me at a standstill.  I love the way the designer incorporated darker shades to this dining room area, balancing it with the white and taupe.  It's a mix of traditional and contemporary.  While the wall color is dark, the room is fresh and light.

For those loving the look of black and white, here's an entrance room to admire.  I love the trim paneling on this wall; adding architectural interest.
Design by Nest Design Studio
I'm a huge fan of wallpaper and love the scale and color of this one, perfectly done in this powder room.  Makes a big impact in this small space.

What a sophisticated and cozy room; love the different textures in this space.  The color palette is elegant, soft and calm.

Wall color:  Benjamin Moore, Revere Pewter (which I have in my home and love)
