New Lay Out

I've changed the look to the blog. Let me know what you think. If you like the old better, I can be talked into changing it back! Thanks!

Pretty Dining Rooms

Although these rooms are not small small they do show how simple can be perfect for the dining room. I'm not a big fan of the table that has hardly any room for the food. I myself do not have a formal dining room, but I think a eat in kitchen can have as much style as these rooms do, just scale down to the must haves and good conversation. Do you have a formal dining room and if so do you use it everyday?

Fireplace Mantles

Fireplace mantels (for me anyways) are one of the hardest things to decorate. Basically a simple shelf to adorn however you see fit. Yeah, fits alright. I've gone months trying to figure out what to do with mine. For me I've found the simpler the better. I start trying to get cute and it just turns out bad. I look at pictures to inspire me. Right now I have 2 candles on holders and a long bowl between them. Come Christmas, I'll be back to the drawing board! How do you like your mantel done??

The Clawfoot Tub

I don't know if the clawfoot tub is the first thing you'd think of for a small space, but it seems the trend of using this sort of tub is sticking around. I myself have never been in one, but they are so charming, I've always thought I needed one (even though I take a "bath" about once or twice a year.) Does anyone have one? What do you like and dislike about it? On a side note- sorry I have not been blogging as much. I'm hoping to pick the pace back up next week! I've been so busy with family stuff! Have a great weekend everyone!

Pottery Barn Christmas Preview

I admit it, the first nip in the air and my thoughts turn to Christmas. Ok, just for a bit, but the older I get, the more a year feels like only a few months. Pottery Barn has a few Xmas shots out and I like what I see. Lots of red, which is always good. My favorite color combo for xmas is bright whites with green and silver. Is it time to get out the naught and nice list already?? Have a great weekend! (oh and its 52 degrees where I live right now, Christmas thoughts are aloud!)

A Soft Place to Fall

I'm such a sucker for a comfy bed. I've posted about this before and I will probably post about it again. I love something about all 3 of these rooms. I've never been one for a overly dressed bed. Too fancy makes me nervous!!

From Around Blog World

After a long weekend of surrendering to fall (we put the pool cover on...sigh) Whats a blogger to do? Be lazy and show you some really pretty pictures from other blogs. From top to bottom these shots are from Girl Meets Glamour, Dream House, and Bueller Designs. Great work ladies!
