And I'd love to follow yours--it would make me that more beautiful and clever.

This blog has been neglected because I've been posting all my hopes and dreams elsewhere: Pinterest, my new favorite way to get inspired. Pinterest is so easy--it posts with a click of a button, and you can see what beautiful and clever things your friends are posting as well. And then you can repost those things and other people will think you are beautiful and clever, when really, it's just your friends. You can follow my boards by going here.

I'll get you, my pretty. And your little dog, too.
For the most part the room is a snooze,
but I see a little guy in the corner I'd like to take home with me.
Here are some just by their lonesome, begging to be adopted into a good home.

I'm not a big fan of tile for logistical reasons
(it's cold, it's echoey, it always feels gritty, it can chip and break)
but this tile I could do in a small space like an entry way.
Too big of a room and geometric/graphic pattern tile would make too big of a statement,
but in small quarters, it works.
Like Wit & Whistle said: Paper lanterns are cheap and make a big statement.
Plus, they give off a nice soft glowy light.
I've always been a fan of paper lanterns.
I've had several in my day.
Currently, we have one medium sized one in our small front room
but I wouldn't mind a couple of huge ones someday.

Rustic wood floors and table mixed with modern chairs and lighting.
Chalkboard wall right there for the kids.
Huge french doors to let the light in.
What I think might be MOSS AS A CENTER PIECE.
Clean, natural and effortless.Snagged off of decorpad, a site I could spend my whole entire life looking at.
A couple of months ago, I was at a party and around the house there were these stumps of wood, de-barked, sanded, shellacked and used as side tables. The guy made them himself. They were beautiful. Since then, I've seen things like it here and there on design blogs but I think I like this take better--I like how this stump is crazy and mangled and looks like it was plucked right out of the ground, more organic. It reminds me of the beaches on the Pacific Northwest for some reason, which I have good childhood memories of.
Spotted on Pretty Mommy.
