Brown Paper Packages

I know its early but wrapping Christmas presents crossed my mind today. I love a simple brown package with red ribbon or string....it seems very country to me. You can always embelish it with pinecones or greenery, ect. What did they do before fancy paper was manufactured?


This reminds me of Americas Next Top Designer show..... A very creative idea!

Less is more?

Its amazing what you can do in a small space, I think less is definetly more in this case.

Larry Laslo, Interior Designer

I think White furniture sometimes can look very cold but in this room designed by Larry Laso he has mixed the right amount of color to make this room elegant yet warm and inviting. What do you think?

Pink in not my favorite color but I love this room. It's simple design looks very upscale and stylish. I think the size of this room is very realistic for most homeowners. Often you see large beautifully designed room in a magazine and would love to implement a similar design but because of its size it's not always realistic for the average homeowner.
I read an article in a magazine that was about how a designer did a make over in her "small home", the house was 2800 square feet! In my neighborhood that would not be considered a "small house". I still subscribe to a couple of magazines which are great for ideas and inspiration but I get really excited when I see something done on this kind of scale.

Eye Catching Orange Decor

In honor of fall I found these beautiful Orange home decor images; they are such a bold statment. I would love to decorate my home like that....... I wonder what my conservative husband would say???

Egg Cups

You don't find egg cups around very much anymore. I love the ones that I have and thought these were very creative ways of displaying them.
