Way back when I was about to launch bedsidesign I jotted down - inspiration is everywhere. I truly believed that if I opened my eyes up and became aware of that concept I would never be lacking inspiration. That was before I became pin-obsessed and saw inspirational blog posts on the daily. Somewhere along the way I got caught up in recycled inspiration. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with Pinterest [as most of you know I'm a huge fan]. I just lost sight to a very crucial aspect of my creative process. I need to find those inspiring surroundings. A few weeks ago Ian and I went on a date to Beer Belly Deli in Wescott. This is one of Ian's fave spots in Syracuse - and with my diet restrictions I've figured out a few things that I can eat too! We were thrilled with the weather and chose to sit outside. As we were talking I looked over and saw this wall...and immediately captured it on Instagram.
I was so inspired by the gritty-ness. The color palette made my heart swoon and the greenery growing in and out of the wall amazed me. I started unplugging and started looking once again for those unexpected pockets of inspiration.
Get out there and keep an eye out for the unexpected - you might just be inspired by what you find.
