Feeling Romantic

I saw the film Letters to Juliet with my darling daughters Noel and Camila last night. I love that it is set in Southern Italy where my ancestors happen to be from. And...I love that is was romantic (silly ending though). Now I want gelato. Darn.

It inspired me to post these romantic images. My home is looking sort of boring these days. I would like the time to get more of me in it. I like the inspiration provided by these:

What inspires you? What's your style? I love modern-classic with a touch of history, but not stuffy, with a very tiny of romantic thrown into the mix. How about you, dearies?

Have an inspired week!
Muchas gracias for stopping by!

    Muchas Gracias for your sweet comment on my recent awards.

    Lovely post, glad you got to see Letters to Juliet, i've been debating on whether or not I should go out to see it. Italy is actually a place I'd like to visit. Plus Gael is one of fave actors.

    I love the cute letter holder from the first image, the calendar from the second and the room from the seventh image is divine, looks like a great place to relax in.

    Hope you are having a beautiful day.

  27. I'm a lablewhore! Can't help it, and mine as well not lie about either!
    I am loving the romantical feeling of these pictures.
    Floral with a touch a French, really!

  28. Adore this shabby chic inspiration :)
