I seem to be “in the middle” of SO many projects in my own home, that I can’t quite bring myself to blog about any of them! So what do I do? I run off to the Ruffles & Rust Inspiration House on Saturday to get ideas for MORE projects!
It’s such a fun idea…the gals behind Ruffles & Rust teamed up with a new home builder to fill a brand-new home with all sorts of treasures. For five days, you could go drool over the house and it’s contents (not really; they discourage drooling), and EVERYTHING was for sale! Including the house!
Come visit with me…
This was the sight that greeted you when you first entered the house <sigh>. So many lovelies!
This was probably my biggest temptation in the whole house. I think it would look amazing in the office (yes, that’s one of the projects I’m still in the middle of), but I figured I couldn’t figure out where to put it AND my card catalog.
An Underwood typewriter! I have one of those; it makes me happy!
Loved the grouping of gold-framed chalkboards…and the theater seats!
The chippy metal table and child’s chair made my heart go pitty-pat…
Even the pantry was decked out! How fun to get to decorate a house where you don’t have to find places for “real-life” things…like FOOD!
I love the look of the pretty tray on the counter. I could do that…except it would shortly be buried in mail, homework, and—dare I admit—crumbs!
Love this little egg holder! I wonder if I could make a reasonable facsimile??
Great chippy table, but my favorite thing on it were the cute egg cups!
One room was decked out as a home office, and it may have been my favorite. It was just very chic!
I thought this organizer board was cute, and easy to recreate.
I loved the bookcase; it has sides made out of what looks like hardware cloth.
What a pretty master bedroom! I have a weakness for sleigh beds, although my tall husband would never go for one!
This sweet dresser is so feminine and pretty.
Another bedroom was decked out in pink, white, and gray. I would love to find a pair of wooden beds for my girls’ room someday!
The boy’s room had this cute little alcove that was perfect for a desk of sorts.
The whole room had a nautical feel. Loved this bed!
…As well as the Ladder to Nowhere!
Even the bathrooms were full of treasures. The bottles on this little shelf were such a pretty green color. I have some aqua bottles, but no green! I’m feeling left out!
The next bedroom was for a dog lover! There were several dog beds for sale.
I am admittedly NOT a dog lover, but I loved this painting!
Every night the house had to be re-stocked as items sold, and so they were pulling items from the store. The “Market” sign is one of mine. It was fun to see it there! I spotted one of my canvases as well.
The garage was stuffed full of goodies for sale. I have a weakness for cubbies…
…I especially loved this piece. It may have been a mail sorter? I have no idea what I’d do with it; I just love the look!
And I loved this short little armoire with the baskets on top. Someday I must have an armoire, just so I can put baskets on top of it!
Hope maybe YOU found some inspiration in these pictures! My project list is growing by leaps and bounds!
Thanks to the Ruffles & Rust team for all their hard work and imagination!
