Recently I have been working on a project that is inspired by hot air balloons so I have noticed them in every setting..including home decor. Isn't that top image with the hot air balloons in Paris so pretty.

What is inspiring you as of late? I would love to know.

I love hot air balloons. It makes me feel all nostalgic, and they are loaded with color! I've always thought I'd use a hot air balloon theme in a baby boy's room.

I love that photo!! Hot air balloons are so pretty, and I agree with The Tiny Abode, such a nice idea for a baby boy's room. My latest little obsession is the use of old vintage world globes in decor, dedicated a whole post to them:)
