Kelly Wearstler, a cure for January blues

I've had one of those weeks when everything in my wardrobe appears boring and drab to me. I consequently feel that i've been presenting myself to the world in this way, which never makes me happy. Strangely when I was looking at it yesterday, worrying about the impending money i was going to have to spend, I saw an orange stripped top that reminded me of my favourite Kelly Wearstler designs. I was instantly inspired to put together tomorrows outfit and know that I will feel full of energy once again.

So this hallway, how cool is it. I have loved this image since it was first published and keep a small cut out of it on my fridge to design inspire me each day.

She also created a similar design for her Californian Beach House. I also love this and have seen a fabulous step by step tutorial on Design Sponge to recreate it yourself. I'm seriously going to think about this for my troublesome hallway. What do you think?
