When I am looking at these lovely exteriors, I find myself wondering if the interiors are as beautiful as they look from the street.

I really enjoy going for a walk. There is always so much to see and think about, and no matter how many times I may walk down the same street, I am able to spot something that I hadn't noticed before. I am intrigued by the creative ways that the occupants are able to create a look that makes their house unique from those surrounding it. I love that even in an urban setting, where the entire block of houses may be architecturally similar, some exteriors really stand out. On a trip to Boston earlier this year I took some pictures of my favorite examples. The following images are from that walk.

I have to admit that this lovely white chair is my absolute favorite. The amount of sunlight that pours in through the windows is wonderful.
For Duncan the cat, a little snooze in the sun never hurt anyone.
Perhaps we could all learn something from the cat. All this talk about sleep is making me tired.

I think this photo highlights the collection very nicely. I love how the light green glass looks against the shells. I believe that it is the soft green that emphasizes the delicate colors in the surrounding shells.
These three garden stools remind me of the shell collection. They would be a welcome addition to any room with a pale palette.
If you look at this abalone shell, you will also notice that there are multiple pale colors in it. I am amazed by how many colors are packed into such a small shell.
If I were to choose this jar of shells and glass as my inspiration for a color palette, I wouldn't hesitate to add this chair from Wisteria.
I think that either one of these fantastic lamps would look right at home with the chair.
And while I am dreaming of ways to create a room from a shell collection, I might as well give myself an inspired view.
For the time being though, the jar of inspiration is all I have. Luckily I never get tired of what I see!

This morning, while I was browsing the images at Apartment Therapy, I happened upon this room. I absolutely love it. Frequently I would be critical of a design that has wall paper and matching fabric, but this room is perfect. I think what I like about it the most is that the wallpaper and fabric combine my two favorite colors. I love how the blue is the predominant color while there are splashes of red throughout. I so wish that this were my room.
