It's a good thing....

I don't know if it's because it's was just winter and I was in the house so much more, but my design mind is on OVERDRIVE.

I would love to take our kitchen from this:

To something like this:

Oh, how I love this island!  Makes so much more sense than the square one I have now.

and  the subway tile.... LOVE IT!

Doesn't this just feel so FRESH?

And our Laundry/Mud Room from this....


Ahh, so organized:

Clean and bright

or maybe hidden behind doors

Mmmm, but I do like this one:

that I found in this book:

Oh my, and this one

And of course I wouldn't want to leave out our dining room.

So I'd like to take this room:

And give it a little board and batten detail like this:

as seen in the fall/winter 2009 issue of this:

by BH and G

Maybe, just maybe 2 out of 3 of these redo's will happen.....


and yes, my fingers are crossed.

You are so creative, you might appreciate this girls step by step furniture building. She mimics many things from Pottery Barn and such.

Love your ideas, I'm sure whatever ones get the green light will be amazing!

I love the look of the white kitchen with the bright green paint! Oh, I hope you get to do it!

I *love* each and every one of those kitchens/mud rooms. I have a few of the same ones in my file, as well! It's good to dream.... :)
