Be Inspired: She's Got Style

Hi Everyone, Time for Be Inspired!
the place to share what's been inspiring you this week.

And speaking of "inspiration", this Southern Gal "Wows" us each week with her decorating skills and paint transformations. We all know Kim, and love her gorgeous Georgia home where she has created a warm and personal style. Kim has an eye for color combinations and isn't afraid to paint, paint, and repaint, sharing her chalk paint and milk paint creations along the way.

I've been a fan of hers early on, and one of my favorite rooms is her wonderful sitting room/library, where she has recently repainted her walls and changed up her sofa and color scheme. Kim's mix of Traditional and Country French is always beautifully pulled together, and she absolutely lives up to her blog name, Savvy Southern Style.




I love the mix of the browns and blues.



And the piece de resistance...
her amazing antique French Vaisselier.

thanks Kim, for always sharing your home and style with us!



Now, on to some other great links from last week...

Leslie and her dad created a wonderful DIY Rustic Plank Table
with salvaged weathered wood  at Gwen Moss.



You'll want to see how Little Miss Maggie morphed
a ho-hum metal flower container
 into this gorgeous Decorative Wall Basket




Jody and Stan from Rooted in Thyme  have gorgeous gardens in their
California home. Take a peek at their Paris Flea Market themed garden room



Vanessa from At the Picket Fence recently completed a
Staircase and Foyer Makeover that is fresh and bright.




And I love this "Table turned Island"




One of my weaknesses is any kind of chocolate...
from Pattie at Olla-Podrida look melt in your mouth?

thanks gals, for joining in for the party!


And today I'm excited to introduce you to a new sponsor, 
Jennifer and her husband are also the proprietors of the website Santos Cage Dolls, but have now expanded their shop to include even more beautiful items to choose from. Alongside their amazing Santos and Ex Votos, they are now carrying lovely crowns, select vintage items, decor and kitchenware: all with a French flavor. I hope you'll visit their Eleanor Brown Blog, and Facebook page to keep up with new items and promotions.



thank you so much, Jennifer!

OK, time to link up all your inspiration from this last week.
If you can, please take a minute to visit the person ahead of you in the links,
and please be a follower of this blog, Common Ground.
Thank you everyone for always showing up ready to party!

  12. Debra,

    I love the features - amazing posts! The green on Kim's table is one of the most beautiful hues.

    Thank you for hosting this fun linky party. Always a pleasure to swing by for much-needed inspiration!

    Congrats on your new sponsor. I bought a Santos doll from them a few years back and get more compliments about it. It's actually a similar colour as Kim's table.

    Have a happy day.
