Eye candy

{ I haven't done an inspirations post in a while. }
Before & after pictures make my heart positively pitter-patter and my palms sweat. Though it likely took the blogger weeks to achieve the finished product, for me (and the rest of us) it's instant gratification of the best kind! These jaw-dropping before & afters caught my attention recently:

Grace's kitchen: The lovely and amazing Grace (of chalkcloth fame here and also here) has the kitchen of my dreams. That carrara marble! Those aqua pendants! The shiny bridged faucet! Her talented & savvy husband renovated their entire home in 30 days. ::Cue the round of impressed applause:: The kitchen is just the first glimpse into the renovation eye candy that is their beautiful home. Pop on over to to her blog for more reveals to come!

Pure Style Home's entryway: How awe-inducing is this transformation?!! There's no way this is the same space.......oh but it is. That sherbert-orange door and the mesmerizing photo walls! I'd like to marry that magical lantern pendant. The final product looks worthy of the glossy pages of House Beautiful, yes?

I hope these images inspire you as much as they inspired me!
