The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight

Thank you so much to everyone who linked up a project on Tuesday. Besides the spotlight here, I also spotlight some of the linked projects on my Facebook page and Twitter. There were so many beautiful projects submitted – here are a few in the spotlight.

This red coral powder room by Inspiration & Realisation is wonderful. The theme is carried out on the towels, artwork, cabinet knobs and more.

I love quilts and the colors in this quilt by Sweet Bee Buzzing are so warm and happy.

Beach, blue and bottles – three of my favorite things. Shabby Beach Nest takes regular bottles and gives them a beach glass look.
