How Do Your Own Neighbors' Homes Inspire You?

You can gather tons of inspiration from your very own neighborhood and all around your own home or apartments. We park off an alley behind our apartment buildings and have been lucky to find a furniture gem or two that a neighbor no longer wanted. We also recently experienced a color influence the other day when we spotted...

...our neighbor's lemon tree in full bloom! What a treat we had hanging over our neighbor's wall, welcoming us as we walked to our parking space. The yellows and greens of the fruit were so pretty that it has inspired us to paint some new frames we have in the same palette.

How do your own neighbors inspire your home design?
