Modern Bedroom Inspired by Nature

I was inspired by a piece of art that immediately ignited intense feelings of euphoria. While visiting the Houston Museum of Natural Science with my husband I could not take my eyes off of this piece of petrified wood.  I enjoy the beautiful objects that God created and often try to implement natural elements in my home whenever I can. I have used plants, flowers, wood, natural cleaning products, nature images, recycled or up-cycled art.  Needless to say, I am still searching for how I can get my hands on this piece of art for my home.

According to Geology.com, Petrified wood is a fossil. It forms when plant material is buried by sediment and protected from decay by oxygen and organisms.

The bright colored material is hard like stone with rich hues intermixed in a beautiful collage. AHHH! Breathtaking. Well I was so inspired by this art,  that I decided to design a bedroom for someone who appreciated art and natural elements as much as I do. Here is a collage of my ideas and I even attached some links of the resources for you.  ENJOY!!

Paint Color Inspiration:Spring 2014-Robin’s Egg

I asked my followers on Facebook, “What would you like Skip to my Rue to blog about?” One of my followers said “Interior Paint Color Inspirations.” I will be posting a series of paint color inspirations for every season and here is the first one.

Spring is here! I love Springtime.. except for when it makes my sinuses act up. I love hearing and seeing the birds, the flowers, cool breeze and blue skies.  Robin’s are a common bird that we see in the United States around this time and you might even see a nest with eggs.

The first palette of this series has been inspired by a Robin’s egg nest. I love the color blue of these eggs. You can use this color in so many ways in your home.
