Small Touches for the Holidays
You don't have to break the bank or take 2 weeks to decorate for the holidays. I think I would rather have a few things in each of my rooms (even the bathroom!) Then one or two rooms over done. Thats me tho, how about you? Do you go all out? I love these pictures because they all have a festive feeling without being over the top.

Something Different for Christmas
Traditions are what the holidays are all about but sometimes its fun to think outside the box. How about a herb tree or a twig card holder? A door decoration not in the usual round shape. Just a note, I will be blogging more next week. I was out of town for the Thanksgivng holiday so look for more post next week!

One of my favorite rooms to really put a lot of thought into is my home office. With spaces being scarce, it takes some thought. Mine is in my main living area, taking up one small wall. I think the main thing you have to consider is what you actual use your home office for, and then go from there. Sometimes keeping the laptop by your bedside is all you will really need. Do you have a dedicated space for a home office? Mine is used primarily to pay bills, keep all the "papers" organized and surf the net.

Word Number Play
I love a whimsical touch in decor. Try a lighthearted fun touch. I have lots of "words" all over my house. Just took a huge wall by my front door and turned it into a giant chalkboard. Have fun when you decorated. Your kids will love it too..

No matter how big or small, if a room has large windows, it will probably look great. Nothing beats LOTS of natural light. I'm not a huge fan of the color gray but the gray in the first picture is very pretty with all the light coming in the window.

I know I've probably written about chalkboards before but I found some more pictures of them and these are some of my favorites. I love these shots a lot. I have used chalkboard paint in a few places in my house and use them all the time. They are great space savers for sure (not to mention paper savers). Chalkboard paint is easy and cheap to do!

Ok ok so its not even Halloween yet but its always fun to think ahead about decorating for the holidays. I will be adding holiday shots from time to time hopefully to give you all some ideas for decorating this year. Why not paint your front door a bright red and put a wreath up? Nothing says "Merry Christmas" quite like traditional red and green. Loving the clear lamps with a holiday scene. Simple is always fantastic. A green garland around the window and pass the eggnog!

Loving the urban yet rustic look to these 3 pictures. A bit of old and new mixed together that makes a really warm yet sophisticated feel. Maybe that same feeling you get when you see grandma holding a newborn. It just makes you feel good inside!

Came across a few kitchen pictures that I really like. The middle and bottom photos are from the same kitchen. I love how they have the island pushed up against the huge bank of windows. I've often wondered if a washer/dryer in the kitchen would be a good idea, it seems to me it could work, although I would probably spill what I was making for dinner on SOMETHING piled up on a counter. The top picture does it for me again, its all about the lighting. Someday I will have a house with lots of windows, I don't care what the square feet is!!!

Which Room do you Prefer?
Same room, different owners. Which one do you prefer? I had a TOUGH time with this one because I like them both in different ways. Do you prefer Doug or Debra? (Names are in the corner of the pictures).

Seems anything goes with dinning room chairs these days and I love it. Mixing old with new, slipcovers, the possibilities are endless. I myself have a old farm table paired with mod chairs. So check out your flea markets and even the big box stores, anything goes!

Light yellow is such a soft pretty color, almost like whites sophisticated older sister. I have a lot of yellow in my home. Just makes me feel better!!!!

Here are some kitchens I thought were very attractive. The one in the middle is very stylish and uses the space really well. Love the color too. I've been taking notes because soon I would like to do a mini overall of my own kitchen. Problem is, the more pictures I see the more I change my mind about what I want! Oh well, happy monday everyone!
