Subway Tile & Marble Counters

I am loving the look of these kitchens and bath. I love how clean and simple the look is... Don't you agree?

Guess What's On My Bed??

Slowly but surely my (rental house) bedroom is coming along. I need the perfect throw pillow still and some type of picture/art above the bed. I am also wanting to either paint my matching nightstands or sell them and get some mismatch ones so it's not so matchy matchy. Plus of course something like a bench or settee at the end of the bed. But like I said slowly but surely. ;)

What do you think?? Do you love my new white bedding as much as I do?? I can't stop going in and staring at it. Smile

PROJECT: Design on a Dime Living Room


This year I am going to save about $50 every 2 weeks and purchase one at a time these 5 items. (the wall decor, pillows and lamp I already have now)

Couch is ALICE LANE $2630 ( I know big price tag which may mean, Needing a cheaper couch)

CSN Rugs Gray Fallon 5X8 $345 plus Free Shipping

Crate and Barrel  Spool Accent Table $200

JHG Chair $550 on Sale

Home Decorators Coffee Table $300

It might be a little tough trying to purchase the couch (I am just in love with it and having a hard time finding a replacement one). So for now I am focusing on the rug, accent table, and coffee table. So if my plan is effective I will be sporting a new Grey Fallon Rug in my Living Room this Feb. Wish me luck and Stay Tuned...

Happy New Year! Oh and my new GOLD Mirror.

I went antique shopping with my sister in law on New Years Day. I have had my eye on it every time I went into this cute little local store and this time it was on sale for $35. You know what happened next...

It came home with me and I couldn't have been more stoked to hang it up in my living room. Take a look...
(note: this is a rental home, not my paint or flooring of choice)

Do you remember last year I won that cool Bird Pillow from Flourish Design and Style blog? Well there it is.

And my pillow from last summer in Arizona.

Another room view

There are so many things I want to do and change in this room, (starting with the couch) and I think 2011 is the year I will be able do it! I think 2011 is going to be a great year and maybe just maybe we will be able to buy a house that I can REALLY decorate. ;)

Here's to 2011!! Happy New Year Everyone!
