I have to be completely honest. This week, coming up with a “Fabulous Room” to feature seemed like a nearly impossible task. Now that I’ve gone back to work, I don’t have as much time to browse through magazines and surf the internet searching for inspiration. But more than that, I have been in a bit of a design rut. Lately, I’ve been feeling a little uninspired by the spaces I am seeing on blogs and in the magazines. Even when something is really beautiful, I feel as though I have already seen it a million times before. Are people not being as original or am I oversaturated with images of interiors?Perhaps writing La Dolce Vita, working in the design industry, reading blogs, and feeding my Pinterest addiction has taken a bit of a toll and things don’t seem as fresh to me as they once did. Maybe that’s why the room I chose for today’s feature feels like a breath of fresh air. It’s not even an entire room—it’s just a shower—a really large walk-in shower, but a shower nonetheless. I looked at this image and was immediately drawn in. After a long day at work, I found myself wishing I could experience this fabulous shower for myself. It’s crisp, clean, and classic—white subway tile, dark grey slate, a beautiful painted wood ceiling, and timeless plumbing fixtures. The design is pure and nothing is competing for attention. Did I mention the wonderful light flooding through the windows? It all looks so serene and really kind of perfect.
I think I’ll do my best to “unplug” this weekend and step away from the computer. Sometimes, it helps to take a couple of days to venture out into the real world in order to feel inspired again. Do you ever go through design ruts in which few things feel new or inspiring? Happy Friday!
