Halloween Decor

I just found this blog, Life in the Fun Lane. My friend Samantha told me about this white w/ white furniture blog. Her name is Holly and she is the ultimate DIY girl with old furniture. Very Inspiring!!

I love this Halloween Inspired Entry Way. (you guys know I LOVE black wood floors, someday. sigh) This is probably one of my favs. All she did was go to Goodwill and find cheap frames and painted them black. Also got the cross-stitch cat there. Then googled Vintage Freakshow posters and printed them off. Soaked everything w/ tea bags to age it and WHA LA!! I just might have to copy her Martha Look for next year! :)

Happy Halloween!!

My Girls Beds Upclose

My husband made these beds and yes painted them also. As well as shaped and painted the surf board. Amazing, Yes he is!!

Unfortunately, we rent and I can't paint the walls or change the carpet to wood floors. Which I think I would do white wood floors to go w/ the Beach theme. But a girl can dream for now. Right!?

Some of these FUN kid rooms I found on A Life's Design Blog on the right.

DIY Dresser

This was my Husband's, Dad's dresser when he was a kid. Cool Right? My husband has such a great eye and new it would make such a cute white dresser for our girls room. After long hours in the garage, my husband sanded, painted, and got new hardware from Target and Wah La!! A new dresser!

My Friend Lizzie

I love looking into other people's houses and seeing the way they decorate. Lizzie has such great taste and I love the clean lines of her house. Thanks Lizzie for letting us all take a sneak peak of your Gorgeous Palm Springs Home! (Just double click the image to make larger)

Lovin the GREEN!

I love the paint color and the round mirror over the fireplace.

This dining room is so inviting with all of its fall decor sitting on that beautiful chunky table. (Lizzie, I have been drooling over those lanterns forever. Jealous. :))

I love the handmade pillows. So cute!!

Thanks again Lizzie!! Can't wait to see the wallpaper, paint and new bedding when done. SMILE

Erin Martin Design

I found this designer several days ago and just love these 3 rooms. I love how natural and clean they look and I love the numbers on the chair cushions.

Country Living

I just love these photos from Country Living. I love the dark paint contrast with the white and love the stripe rug down the stairs. Gorgeous!!

Beautiful Kitchens

I always thought my dream kitchen would have white cabinets and black wood floors. I am now tempted to switch it up a little. :)

I still dream and love white cabinets. Just so light and clean looking. Here are some of my favorites of lately.

Because I am new at this I am starting to get peoples names who took these photos to give them credit. But these pics of these kitchens are courtesy of the design blogs located on the right. Sorry I don't know exactly who they belong too.
