I am thrilled that many people follow me on Pinterest especially on a particular board which is “inspiration/ style for the home”. Well, Pinterest is an on- line board and I just pin all the things I love and all that inspire me. So although most of the things that I pin are not my own, they still reflect my style, my passion, my dream..in other words it’s a reflection of myself. It tells something that is within me, what I value. Today I’ve decided to show you what I have there that have been repinned by many followers of mine. Let’s start with a very lovely front porch

For me this porch is so relaxing where you can have a cup of tea. I believe it’s a porch for all seasons. It is great for summer and if you add an outdoor heater it will be very good even during winter. I love the chalkboard frame hanging where you can write ” welcome”. I would love to write too, “JOY dwells here” or “PEACE resides on this abode” and you can just change the colors of the cushion depending on the occasion. This porch I believe is just so flexible.

A very simple back porch where you can unwind after a very busy week. This porch gives me an idea that an indoor furniture can be put outside and can really be very functional

I love the idea that window shutters are used here as the wall design. It goes very well with the rattan furniture. I love the blue floors too which creates a cool and peaceful mood. This area can be fabulous during weekends where you can entertain extended family or friends for an afternoon tea.
This back patio can be used for family lunches and barbeques. I love the vintage dining table, chairs and benches here. This back patio is just right after the kitchen so even that the freshly cooked food can be enjoyed straight away.
Then let’s go to some entry way which for me should always be welcoming, not crowded yet useful where you can leave your shoes or coat in case they are wet to keep the house clean. These are some that I adore:

In this entry way, you can even sit down while removing your boots. My heart also goes for the Bolton lantern, it’s just so lovely and would surely welcome every guest even during the night.

This entry way has spot for umbrellas ensuring that every person who walks in does not need to look any further where to put it or if you are leaving the house and it’s raining, this would always be handy. Then there are the lanterns again which look so pretty and chairs again just in case you need to sit down when taking off your shoes. The furniture in these two entry way are very useful because for the owners, they can hide their house and car keys here as soon as they enter to avoid misplacing them.
How about some the walls of the house: I’ve made a post before wherein I have mentioned that walls should always attract and attack. Yes, it should attract they eyes and attack the heart and even the soul. Look at these walls that captivated me:
From: Cottage Instincts
This wall had old windows which are used as picture frames. The word family is there which says something a lot about the homemaker, that she values family so much. This picture frames are actually on the dining hall to ensure that every time they gather to eat, it reminds them that they have to stick together since they are one family.
From: Young house love
This wall has a variety of stuff, but the word GO captured my attention since it reminds every member of the family to choose the “right way to go”.. like “GO for your dreams” or “Go and do NOT give up”. I find this wall just amazing and meaningful.
This is my very own creation. My husband put a shelf on our blank wall and I placed the letters of our names ( Lorenzo, Nova and Joseph ). I am so happy with the outcome because it tells that these are the people who reside in this dwelling house which make it a home where we dream, pray, laugh and love together.
Definitely, I will have part 2 of this post. Stand by
