Light up my life

I really really love this chandelier, and chandeliers of similar style. But every time I show one to Jason and tell him I want those in our home, specifically our bedroom, he says "do you know you live with a boy?" Apparently my taste in lighting fixtures is a little too girly for him.

Picture This

As someone who spends a lot of time behind a camera creating images for other people, I see the value in having images of my own family adorning my wall. Someday I plan to have a wall like these in a main room with nine 20x20s of my family. Color or black and white? I guess I'll have to see what works best with my home! Oh, and I'd love to do one of these for a client. Interested? Visit me here.

Chair envy

What I love about this picture is the shape/design of the chairs a well as the color of the wall . . . so perfect. I also love the fresh flowers, someday I'd love to always have fresh flowers in my home!

Rub a dub dub

Oh how I'm longing for a tub! There's nothing more relaxing than a nice, hot, long bath and living without a tub has been kinda hard on me. I especially love the shape of this tub, the color on the walls and all the windows... as long as the windows have a great view!

People always talk about turning into their mother, and while I always thought I was more like my father, I see my mother in me more and more every day. For years, I watched her tear pictures out of magazines and put them in a white binder. She attended the Parade of Homes with me in tow for as long as I can remember. Always snapping photographs of ideas she may want to replicate in her future home, and into the binder they'd go. Now that I'm married and my husband and I are looking for our first home, I find myself scouring the Internet for my own home inspiration. Here's where I'll keep my findings.
