A Few Elegant Details


I like to get my brain warmed up by looking over a few pretty books or magazines in the morning. Inevitably I encounter something that gives me a good decorating idea, or reminds me of what I'm SUPPOSED to be doing today. You never know what will spark your creativity. I usually have a magnifyer nearby because I don't like missing the details. Because it's all in the details isn't it?



Nautical themes always catch my interest.




Little clothes are like delicate flowers. Do you see the birds here?







Lace is like an unsolved mystery to me.



There are so many similar graceful curves to the universe.












Beautiful china tops the list of elegant details.






I guess I need more lists!
 I hope you're enjoying the details in your day!
Ciao! for now!

Jacqueline, such gorgeous china, you always inspire me. I did just purchase a lovely white table cloth this morning, linens are some of my favorite things to collect. Yours are stunning as always. Wonderful post.

Nautical themes always catch my interest too! What a great post & some super photos! And I am HOOKED on Pottery Barn's things right now. Just bought one of the $59 pillows for the bed in our new RV! Gonna do the bedroom in a "beach theme". I have spent a fortune but, am having a ball designing in my head. Charlene

Such lovely whites, Jacqueline! I love each photo. I know what you mean about gaining inspiration by reading books or mags. I'll have to use your magnifying glass trick!

Hi Jacqueline, thanks for stopping by my Blog and for the sweet comment!! Also, thanks for clearing the 'Google sign-in' mess up, I was wondering if I did something wrong.
Oh your photos are so beautiful and inspiring, I can never have enough lace, it must be like you said 'the unsolved mystery' hehe.
