De-Saturated Palette

I found these inspiring images while surfing the web the other day, and just had to share them.

I named this little house we live in the “Lettered Cottage” because of my love for all things typography-related. Also, I’m married to a writer, and find myself displaying books, quotes, words, letters and numbers in every single room.

This tablecloth really speaks to me. I love the variations of dark and light gray in the type, and the layering of different fonts:

The next two photos gave me inspiration for accessories to use in my Kitchen…

Items like these could be found in flea market, home stores and on Ebay.

That little tin crown in the photo above initiated an online search for others like it.
I found this larger one

…and this one for sale at a brocante in Paris…

This last photo is my favorite. I could design an entire house around just these items.

I am crazy about the de-saturated look they all have. I may be forced to re-think the palette I’ve chosen for my Kitchen now that I’ve seen this. (Kevin’s gonna kill me) :-)


Also, I’m still looking for my Craft Magazine Contest Winners…

“Shannon @ Silver Trappings”
