Design Inspiration Can Be Found All Around You

I was sitting in Copper Cup Coffee (a local Lancaster coffee shop) feeling totally relaxed and happy when it hit me… this place makes me feel good! But why!? Copper Cup Coffee (inspiration)   I stopped for a minute and thought, “what is it about this place (other than their delicious coffee)!?” I realized a few things: I loved the natural elements: light wood tones, lush green plants, concrete, soft paint colors and bright natural light. Since I can’t necessarily turn your home into THIS coffee shop, I’ve put together a design pallet inspired by the aesthetic of my new favorite place. A – Shaker-style cabinet in Natural Maple B – Caesarstone “Sleek Concrete” quartz countertop C – AKDO 2X8 “Arctic White” clear glass tile D – MSI Kenzi series Mixana hexagon E – DuChateau Vernal Collection “Lugano” European Oak engineered hardwood   Maybe this exact design pallet isn’t for you, but my point of this post is to encourage you to pull inspiration for your home from your favorite places and other beautiful areas around you. Inspiration can be found everywhere!
