The next award is for sunniest yellow door (so welcoming!)

The award for most interesting way to incorporate house numbers on a front door goes to this lovely etched glass door

The award for best welcoming coastal door goes to this one:

Kitchen Do's and Don'ts

Hi friends,

I am back with more amusing Do's and Don'ts. Today's focus  is the kitchen. So much to cover on this topic! And as always, this is the world according to me - feel free to disagree or share thoughts. The more the better :)

First up, DON'T go too girly in the kitchen like this

DO Make your kitchen fun and interesting with pink accents like this


Next DON'T leave everything out in your kitchen like this:


DO display attractive dishes and kitchen items in open shelving

DON'T keep tile from the 1980's in your kitchen like this

DO use bold, stylish tile to update your kitchen like this:


DON'T go all Darth Vader in the kitchen like this:

DO lighten and brighten around dark cupboards like this

I leave you today with this amusing thought:

Living Room Accents

Hi friends,

Today, I have been thinking about the final accent pieces for our living room now that the fireplace and surrounds are in (and looking good I might add!)

I continue to be obsessed with the West Elm industrial chic decor items and feel that a trip there is needed soon.

One of the things that are living room still needs is side tables to go beside our chairs. These would do the job nicely


Also we need new floor lamps that can be used as reading lights such as these


Finally, the room needs some smaller decor items - these picture frames would look nice in the new picture nook in the builtins

and these hurricane lamps are just stunning

Can't wait to finish the room off and share our final reveal! (although I'm a tinkerer so I'll never probably be fully finished).

Before I head out I also wanted to let you know that I updated the grey and yellow bathroom design I posted yesterday. I looked at the design this morning and hated it! It looked better in Polyvore and I was rushing to get a post up last night.

I leave you today with this amusing item !


Thanks for stopping by!

Hi friends, I am still playing around with this new design site Polyvore. I was in a rush to post yesterday evening so I pulled together a design but looking at it today - I hated it! I've fixed it up a little bit and like this version much better. Hope you do too

Hi Friends,

Today, I have a fun design to share from a new e-design site I learned about called Polyvore. I think I like it even better then Olioboard if that is possible.
