Bedside Inspiration

I came across this bedside photo on Apartment Therapy and was immediately in love with the bright pops of yellow.  The photo comes from the house tour of Kyle and Erin’s home. 


So bright and cheery and fun…

I especially love the yellow tray and am now thinking about doing something similar.  With the new house finally starting to come together I am able to begin thinking about new ideas and projects to make the place special.  I do have some sneak peak photos coming soon for you all! 😉

Inspiration and Big News

July 11, 2011 at 9:22 am (Inspiration) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

After being out of town, and a little out of touch, most of last week, I am finally catching up.  Reading through a backlog of blogs today I ran across the most gorgeous farm house tour on Apartment Therapy. 

The details of this home struck a cord with me, because we happen to have just bought an 1891 farm house.  Yes, one more move!  We close in about two weeks.  We are anxious, nervous, excited, and very busy.  This is the first time I will really be moving away, although not far, just to Iowa.  This is our dream home, and we are very excited to remodel and decorate once there.  Pictures soon to come!

But for now, here are two of my favorite images from Shannan and Cory’s home tour.  Check out the rest here.

I love that light fixture!  And the pillow is gorgeous!  I am so excited to put some of this inspiration to use in the new place!


This was one of my favorite photos because of the crate used to hold towels.  We found an old crate of glass bottles at a garage sale for a few dollars, and had planned to use the bottles as wedding decor.  Little did we realize that the crate had a Tipton, IA business emblem on the side, which is where we later bought the house!  I would love to incorporate our crate in a useful way like this!

What do you think?

Bright, Gorgeous Room

June 30, 2011 at 10:32 am (Inspiration) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I’m a black and white person.  Always have been.  Just recently I have started to expand my decor colors.  I still tend to shy away from bold colors, but when I see a room so bright and gorgeous, there are times that I just can’t help myself!


Two bright colors in one little space and it still works beautifully!  And, it doesn’t even scare me off in the slightest!  Actually, I feel inspired by this room.  Check out the whole lovely home tour here on Apartment Therapy:

New Chair Love

May 18, 2009 at 10:55 am (Inspiration) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

This weekend has been busy.  I have many things to show you all (and the kitchen counter-tops are being installed as I type!).  But, sadly, my camera card is not working today.  So, until I figure out what to do with that (hopefully tonight!) I will show you my chair love early, and hope that I can have some exciting weekend finds for you tomorrow!

I saw this photo last week on Apartment Therapy.  This chair is in a home layout from this year’s San Francisco Decorator’s Showcase.  Sweet, huh!?


What a statment a chair like that would make!

Chair Love Some More

March 31, 2009 at 8:02 am (Inspiration) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

This weeks chair love comes early!  I spotted this beauty on Apartment Therapy earlier in the week.  The picture is of the store front of the Pico Modern Furniture shop.  What a pretty place!  And, great taste in chairs, I might add.


The shop is described as unique and unusual.  I love it already!  And, I want the chair! 🙂

I’ve Been Spotted!

I just had to mention that I noticed I was spotted by Apartment Therapy! The other day they noted on their sister site, The Kitchn, the post of our kitchen island.  It was featured as one of their delicious links.  We are so excited to have inspired some one!  Thank you Apartment Therapy!

Chair Love Again

March 20, 2009 at 11:31 am (Inspiration) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

This week I have been slow. But, it just hit me. My daily Apartment Therapy email just came in, and there is was, this amazing industial looking chair. I do not know much about the chair itself, but Atelier 154 in France is the shop where this baby can be found, and  the stylists of this blog that contains manygorgeous photos other photos are Elodie and Karine Kong. See them here: .


Just simply beautiful.

P.S. I think that my weekly chair loves are so random and different because they tend to match my mood for that week (or day). I just noticed that as this chair even kind of matches the outfit I am wearing today. Casual, but classic, but also unique. Anyways…
