Eye Candy...

Now that we are getting settled into our new house, my mind is racing with ideas for decorating.  I have a new style I think.  I want to get rid of the old...and move the new in.  New ways of decorating for me, more color, less uniformity, and implementing things that are a part of our lives, my life, and personality.  So many neat ideas are available on the web.  Great pictures, great inspirations, great bloggers.  For some of these photos...I have linked their blog for credit...for others...I am so sorry-I saved the pics awhile ago and do not recall where they came from!
I love this room.  I love the table, the bright colors against the white furniture with the Black armoire...its so perfect and adorable and flirty and fun.  I <3 you.

You will have to go over and pay this womans blog a visit, and read her inspiring life journey as well.  She is amazing, and has such a fun way of decorating.  Her style is very much what I have been craving lately in my decorating, and is very similar to the types of decorating risks Ron and I like to take when finding uses for old things-on a budget. 

Funky Junk Interiors
I love the red and chalkboard paint.

Funky Junk Interiors
I love ladders.  I especially love ladders in bathrooms.  I need to find one now....this is just too cute.

Funky Junk Interiors
I swear I am not stalking her...I just love her home ;-)  I love the waste basket wicker different, yet so functional.  Jealous?  Oh yes.

Love this door, chalkboard paint, in a bathroom.  :-)  Awesome and so different...just my style.

LOVE THIS!  Old kitchen cabinets revamped into playroom storage.  I am on this ISO old cabinets.  Cute cute cute.

Better Homes and Gardens
I love these curtains and HAVE been stalking these at Walmart for months now.  I want them in my diningroom with this:

Okay-this is not my hutch, but I am going to paint ours black very soon, and hopefully it will look similar.  That with my diningroom table and chairs of course!  Can't wait.

I LOVE these subway signs.  They are eclectic, and I want one.  I will make one though...they are pricey, and too pricey for me.
Do you see all of my projects I have going on here?  Way too many.  I am so inspired though.

Love this wall too.  I did get a projector for Christmas...I could totally pull this one off I think.  Love it. 
Okay...I'll stop saying love.
BUT I do <3 all of these beautiful ideas.

Those are some great ideas! I love the subway signs in the kitchen! I've been in my house 5 years and I'm still trying to decide what to do with it!

Thanks for your comments about our big boy room! I am not a talented painter so we used wall decals to decorate the boys room. We painted the wall color and then put the decals on top. It was easy! We ordered them on line at

Good luck with decorating your new home!

Take care,

Hi Shannon! I post a lot of pictures of sets from TV shows and movies that have beautiful interior design on my blog if you need a little extra inspiration. I always drool over some of the houses I see on my TV. I hope you get the chance your blog is adorable!
