Inspiration Journal #2

Ok so to continue the series of inspiration blog posts, here’s a new set of links for inspiration.

Offering unique furnishings and items from around the world. is an online (and showroom) retailer that I discovered several months ago out at lunch one day. It turns out their warehouse is right down the street from my office and one of my favorite lunch places was giving away their coupons. I checked out their website once I got back to my desk and fell in love with their store, which offers a unique mix of antique-style furniture and home accessories. Think Pier 1 but a little more unique. This site can be useful if just want some beautiful things to look at, or even if you just want somewhere you can gather color inspiration.

Everyday Fun Digital Kit from Jen Martakis Designs

Jen Martakis has a new digital kit in the Two Peas store called Everyday Fun. The bright colors and whimsical patterns are a wonderful source of inspiration for a few summer layouts. I’m in the middle of working on a layout with this kit so stay tuned!

I saw so many great layouts when researching this post that it was difficult to settle on one, but I found it anyway. I chose this layout from grantandlaurensmom at Design House Digitals because I love how she was able to maximize the size of such a large photo by stretching it across the entire page while creating some interest with the layers. This is definitely an idea I’ll keep in mind since I’ve got a large family as well.
