inspired interiors

In keeping with the coastal theme this week (click here if you missed my Nautical Nursery post), I’ve got a house tour that personifies small, but mighty.  Despite the meager foot print this weeks Inspired Interiors selection is cozy, curated and gorgeous.  Designer Raquel Garcia combines a thoughtful selection of colour and texture with clean shiplap and enviable natural light to create a space that feels much larger than it is.  A beautiful mix of modern elements, traditional pieces and luxe finishes creates a home that is beautiful and inviting. Enjoy!
