We’re so pleased that Wendi decided to share the inspiration behind the rooms she added to her portfolio here on Design Shuffle. Take a look and see what inspired these spaces.
Wendi says this light-filled open living room is inspired by by the sea and sand. It’s a beautiful space where color, texture and pattern merge to create a captivating contemporary living environment.
The designer calls this contemporary kitchen “inspired by the white sand beaches of Florida’s Gulf Coast.” It’s all high-end appliances, fabulous finishes and touches of watery blue.
Inspired by the glamorous world of Old Hollywood, the designer brings a Mid-Century modern aesthetic to this spacious master bedroom.
Wendi shares the inspiration behind this chic family room design, saying it’s “inspired by the shadings of a sunset.” We think she’s captured tropical style in a most restrained and pleasing way.
With an irresistible Tuscan point of view, this colorful eat-in kitchen was inspired by THE yellow sunflowers, red poppies and green grass seen in the rolling hills of Tuscany. What a fabulous spot for Sunday brunch.
Here’s a contemporary dining room Wendi says was inspired by life under the sea. All white and watery blue, this lovely tablescape is overseen by a watchful seahorse.
Inspired by the juxtaposition of ancient and modern art, this dining room is transformed into a gallery of sorts–modern art and ancient sculpture blend to create a captivating setting for dinner by the water at sunset.
Thanks to Wendi for sharing some of her Inspired Interiors.
