Inspiration-to-Room: An Eclectic Mix

At Schoolhouse Electric, we welcome those who are curious and interested to take a look behind-the-scenes into our inspirations - the bits and pieces gathered in our daily lives that shape the Schoolhouse Electric collection. As a result, we are introducing a seasonal feature called "Inspiration to Room" that we hope will allow you to share in our muses and influences. Each season Sarah Culbertson, our Director of Merchandising and Co-Creative Director, will share a curated group of our pieces that share a common thread with an inspiration image that catches her eye.

Sarah says:

"As part of my job, I am always seeking out and collecting images that inspire me. It can be the shape of a chair, the color of a wall or the scale of a lamp. These bits of inspiration are printed daily (yes, I am a paper person) and collated. One wall of my office is covered in such images and is forever being rotated depending on my mood and current projects. Sometimes I find images that are so perfect as a whole - the entire room inspires me. For me, this is one of those rooms that I love because each piece works together beautifully."


"I love the eclectic mix of this space. Vintage pieces mixed with an art collection gathered from a multitude of styles, a modern geometric pillow and rug, and plants for a hint of greenery and life. The color story of mostly neutral tones is brought to life with a few punches of color (hello beautiful sofa!) and pattern. When these elements are combined, they create a unique and welcoming space."

Below is a collection of products that speak to me in the same way. Together, they evoke the feeling of the inspiration image.
