Enchanting Etryways

How lovely is this!!?  I am in love with all the windows!!  They let in so much light!!  I also love the sitting area.  I think all entry's should have a place to sit.  I love how elegant everything is, too.  The pretty fabrics, and the fancy furniture, not to mention the gold accessories and the flowers.  Lovely.
Here is one a little more rustic.  What a view!!  I'd keep that door open all the time.  It almost looks like this house is located in the Italian countryside.  Love the terracotta tile floors, and the massive double front doors.  Also loving the exposed beams.  The table is nice and sweet, but I think they could use a chair or two in here.
Here is a mix between glamour and rustic.  I love the door.  So pretty.  I also love the cozy feel the old furniture and accessories bring in.  This just looks like a house that's been around for a while.  Loving the crown molding - what a great way to dress up the entry!

Pretty Little Things

I'm all about organization, but sometimes I think it's ok to leave things out in the open.  Especially if they're pretty.  Love this little necklace bowl!  And paired with the vintage books, and flowers, it looks great and I think it probably really adds to this space.  What a lovely thing to have in a dressing room!

Boys Rooms

As we get ready to move our toddler from his nursery into a little boys room, I've been collecting some inspiration.  Here's what I've got so far.
Love restoration hardware.  I don't understand why it's so hard to find the most basic bedding sometimes.  I love the simple stripes.  No character beds for my little guy.  Also loving the truck on the floor.  How cool is that old thing!!  Jason would love playing with it.   The vintage clip boards hanging on the wall are a fun idea, too.
I've always loved the nautical look.  This room is so simple, yet really cute.  I love how all the furniture and even the wall covering ties into the theme.  Cute little paddles resting against the wall...
I've always had a thing for airplanes.  And this room is one of my all time faves.  LOVE the giant world map on the wall!!  How easy would it be to do that yourself using a projector!?  Also loving the compass above the bed, and of course the airplanes.  The bedding is adorable, as well.  i love the mixed stripes and plaids.  Might try to make a quilt like this.  It's just strips of fabric sewn together.
And another airplane room.  This is a nursery, but I think a lot of this room could translate toward a boys room.  Love the airplanes on the wall, and the giant ridable one, too.  I gotta find one of those!!  I'm also in love with the miniature aviator jacket hung in the frame.  How cute is that!!?
Loving the colors in this room.  I love the way that name looks above the bed - like giant type setting.  Also love the globe and the little traveling figurines - the elephant, the hat, the giraff, the basket.  All really cute.
Here's a cute baseball themed room.  If I were going to go with baseball as a theme, I'd try to pattern it after this one.  Isn't that bucket of balls cute~!?
More stores need to get in on the similar bedding in different colors trend.  It seems like Potterybarn is the only one to get the memo.  Makes it so much easier to make a shared room look nice!!!  I love the "matching" bedding in this boys room.  It's just a standard boys room, but the similar bedding makes it look really good.
This may be one of my favorite shared boys rooms of all time.  So simple, yet so cute!!  I LOVE the similar bedding in different colors.  It gives each child a sense of identity even though they are sharing a room.  I also love the black and white posters of different sports hung above the beds.  Maybe the child's favorite sport could be showcased here.
Cute ideas~!

Make Stuff

I just thought this was  a cute decoration idea for a craft room.  Love the curly string that the words are made out of!  And the jumbo buttons!  Just really cute.

Mantle Headboards

This is kind of a cool idea.  In place of a headboard, use a thrifted mantle piece.
I think it looks really cool.  Even if it's brand new! 
And it would work with ANY style.  Just get a mantle to match your style.
So unique and original.  I love this idea!
