I love looking on Pinterest for pictures of personal space in homes. You can blog here, sleep here, refresh and meditate here. This space looks so serene and calm and soothing. I love it. The white colors are so soft and the view is excellent. I am in love. Photo from here.

I saw this glittery lampshade on Pinterest and thought about how this would be a great DIY project. Apparently the people of Pinterest thought so too.

That would…… Continue reading Living Large- DIY Glitter Lamp Shades
I love the idea of having little storage nooks or places in small crannies where you designate for a particular function like a mini-office or reading nook. I think they really make a home special.

I suck at stacking bookshelves. Stacking a bookshelf is somewhat difficult when you are trying to make things pretty. I always start out with some kind of cute configuration and then I start adding stuff as I accumulate things. The bookshelf slowly goes from stylish to overstuffed. I would love a bookshelf like this one…… Continue reading Living Large- Stacking A Bookshelf
I have been obsessed with the Lillesand wrought iron bed from Ikea ever since I visited the store last week. Okay so this bed isn’t actually a wrought iron bed, but it has that vintage look.
