Finding an idea where you least expect it

I get ideas from almost anything. Catalogs, magazines, blogs, Pinterest, and HGTV to name a few. Sometimes I see a room or an idea and it gets me thinking. I’ve even gotten an idea from a childrens’ book once. A while back I was watching “Modern Family” and found that instead of laughing, I was paying attention to the wall in Phil and Claire Dunphy’s kitchen.

I came to a couple conclusions. I like plates. I like pretty plates. I like pretty plates on walls. I wanted pretty plates on the wall in my kitchen. I had the perfect spot near my kitchen table. I didn’t want an overwhelming number of plates, just a couple well placed ones that would add color and texture to my space. I hunted at my usual places and found these three from HomeGoods, Pier One and Target. 

I also made my own bulletin board there which ties it all together. I’ll be showing you how to do that another day. This wall is a great accent in the kitchen and can be easily changed if I happen to find another new plate that I love. I paid about $3 each for these ones. 

So you never know where you’ll find an idea. Keep your eyes open and you’ll see something you’ll love. Do you have an idea already and want help tailoring it to your space or budget? Let me know and I’ll be happy to help!
