inspiration friday

i've been thinking a.lot. lately about our house and all that i want to do to finish it up.
it's just seriously lacking those finishing touches, you know?

and it's bugging me.
{not that i've done much about changing that in the last few months, but still...}

so the while the ideas have been rolling, i've been putting together a few things have been inspiring me to get our house a bit more polished.

picture collage/wall.
{i'm thinking white frames, though, not black.}

chalk wall!
{probably in the office.}

red curtain over the kitchen window.
{not necessarily like this, but just some sort of red to bring in a pop of color.}

grey dining room table.

for our bedroom.
{paint this on a canvas maybe?}

turquoise dresser.
{a dresser or nightstand or something.}

grey rocking chair.
{we already have a white rocking chair and a green one. perhaps the white will stay white, but the green definitely needs a new color.}

mustard yellow frames.
{already have a mustard yellow lamp, now i just want to find the paint color to match to bring in more of it!}

white-washed fireplace.
{this was Jae's idea, i cannot take credit.}

so whaddya think?


  1. Can I just say that I LOVE all of these ideas, and I cannot wait to have a house to decorate!! So...in the meantime, I will live vicariously through you. Any help you need, I'll be there!!

  2. I'm thinking this makes me want a house!

    I've thought of doing a picture wall myself by just taking all the random frames I already own and just spray painting them. And then if I don't like it, I figure I can always just spray paint them a different color.

    It's a win win.

  3. Oooo can I help??! I love all of this. Turquoise dresser/night stand LOVE. Picture collage always great. Are you wanting the sign for your bedroom just like that, or different colors?

    1. yes come help! i'm not particularly talented when it comes to being crafty/designing. and for that sign.....i'm not sure yet. it's still up for debate. ideas?

  4. Cute, Cute ideas! Love them all. Can't wait to see what you end up doing!

  5. i MUST make that sign ('with my whole heart, for my whole life' LOVE IT!) -- lets for real get together and craft, yeah?! instead of just saying we will! :D
