Photos Going Up The Stairs

My sister-in-law Jodi has photos going up the stairs in her home, and I really love that.

I have never been the type to display photos in my house of my family and friends, but maybe it's a good idea...remember those who care a little.


Crate & Barrel White Magazine Tote

It's way too much money for a magazine holder, but I saw it at a spa and really like it:

Great Image from Absolutely Beautiful Things

I love the idea of a comfortable sofa as a chair in the dining room. I hate regular chairs that aren't comfy.

Kate Madison French Country Farm Table

I covet this, but it's a bit expenseive for my budget right now...do I wait, and buy what I really want? Try to have it made? Such a really big dilemma ;) I also like the round table as well...

Buffets from Ikea - I like this

I could paint the brown one white or lt. grey...and put better pulls on it...hmmm...the other idea I had was to get a low buffet, and then put shelves above it with shelf separators from Anthropologie.

Ikea's Leksvik Shoe Rack

My husband and I had this in our old apartment. I want to have a shoe rack/bench for when we come in...hmmm...I may get it and paint it white.

Kikkerland Magnetic Timer

I like the yellow timer. Great to stick on a fridge.
I saw them here: http://www.revdesign.biz/servlet/the-606/Kitchen-Timer-60-Minute/Detail

Crate and Barrel Delfina Covered Jars

I like these Delfina Jars from Crate & Barrel. I'm not sure what I'd put in them -- they are possibly a little too decorative...but they are very pretty.

Tin Signs

I found a company at Anthropologie that makes tin signs made by Mummert.
I would love one that says, "Cafe," and the below, "Washroom."








Anthropologie is Wondrous

Usually I'm not a big fan of chain stores, but Anthropologie rocks my world. I get really excited in there...not for their clothes, but for their expensive home goods.

I made a list of what I really love:
1. French tile coaster for $3.95 to use some as tiles for the bottom of the door
2. Green-ish glasses that say milk
3. I Godinger & Co. - Tribeca - large pitcher for flowers
4. Hooks that are white or yellow for kitchen for aprons, measuring cups, etc.
5. Tin signs - cafe
6. Latte cups in pink, yellow, white, and a giant latte cup in yellow
7. Hooks for walls - all different ones, and glass knobs for new console
8. Napkins - yellow
9. Yellow and aqua biscuit cups
10. Typhoon bread box
11. Blue & white plants for plate holder
12. Mummert vintage signs
13. Red outdoor mat $48.00
14. Cake plate
15. Glass candle sticks.

Now I feel like a complete glutton...

Studio Pictures from "Posy Gets Cozy" -

These pictures are from the blog Rosy Little Things (www.rosylittlethings.typepad.com). Her studio is amazing, and I love the wall color: River's Edge from Behr.



White Pots

I am not sure where this picture comes from, but I really love the painted terra cotta pots. I would like to put that on my entrance table.

Stuff from Three Potato Four Online Shop - Me like it

Piyo 3 Piece Meauring Cup Set $28.00
White Pear Bud Vases - Set of 5 $60.00


















I really love this little bird measuring cups...I think my sister-in-law Jodi would like it...

Cool Number Plates from Rosanna!




Pretty Buffets and Consoles

I really love this buffet from Wisteria. When I get one, I think I want to paint it gray.

Dreamy Bedroom from Home and Garden


I like table cloths

I like the idea of table clothes on table - to change up the color. Maybe a white linen one,a floral one, and a good-ole French table cloth. The first pic. is from Homes and Gardens, and the others are from French General in LA - I can't wait to see their linens...






Perfect for the Dining Room!

This "ondine console" from The French House (http://www.thefrenchhouse.net/) - a UK store that only ships in the UK, would be so perfect in my dining room. It would be great for displaying the cake pedestals. I also really dig the color of the console. I love grey colors in the French country style.


Magnifique! I am in love with this kitchen!

I would love this all white room and colored chairs!
A large painted dining table, with intimate, low-level lighting overhead and casual bistro-style chairs, forms the focal point of this kitchen. Vintage dining table, Castle Gibson, chairs, The French House, similar pendant lights, Pasco PL71, Hector Finch Lighting.


Pretty Items from Maison Midi

I found this store online in Los Angeles called "Maison Midi." I can't wait to visit. Some items I particularly love are the cream French Dinnerware set, Fleur de Lys Carafe and bistro chairs.









Paint Colors for my new apartment

I'm thinking of white - milky, antique whites.
Yellow - sunny yellow in dabs
Blue - cobalt and baby
Green - sage and strong
A little red in French linens

Cake Pedestals - J'aime le gâteau!

I love these cake plate pedestals from Rosanna!
I dream of buying a buffet or hutch to house a collection of cake plates, especially the children's cake plates and pedestal!































Great items from Rosanna and Wisteria!

I really like the following from the Rosanna website, and would love to have a hutch in my home to put them. I think about putting this French country kitchen shelf - to be hung from a buffet table from Wisteria, http://www.wisteria.com/.





















I would like to put plates from anthropologie or rosanna in yellow/white. These would look nice:

















I love these candlesticks from Rosanna:





I love this entryway in Homes & Gardens Magazine

The relaxing qualities of all white...I want my entry way to look like this a little...with a few plants.

Domino Decorating Contest Winner - a girl-fest - i love it!

I really love and adore this pictures. It's something I would never be able to put together so sweetly. I really like the soft colors, and the sweetness of it. I especially love the yellow vanity.
The winner is named Catherine from Mill Valley, CA.












Something about white...and a little turquoise

I love this bedroom...I want a flokati rug like the one in the picture...it's dreamy.
It's designed by Burnham Design - http://www.burnhamdesign.com/



I Loved "Vintageweave Interiors"

I went to Vintageweave Interiors last week, and I really loved it. It may be a little too expensive for me to buy my furniture there, but there were tons of fun & girly accessories that I loved...ahh childhood revisited. I really loved the cake plates in pink, yellow and blue. It was very French Country, and owner reminded me that I can paint anything. This is a very accessible look with a little work and creativity. Need to buy paints!!! Goal one! Antique white, yellow, pink, blue and maybe a sage, and gray! I particularly love gray and white. There is a part of me that loves the all-white look, although it looks like someone has died and they are "covering up the mansion," I still like it. Images from Vintageweave Interiors:
