Decor Inspiration

Remember that house I spoke of on Thursday? Well, no we haven't heard back. 
But that doesn't stop me from practically decorating the entire house via Pinterest

Curtains around the bed (with or without a window) are genius to me. It really brings the room together and gives it that sanctuary feel. Am I wrong?
Another option is a canopy style above the bed. The curtains hail from Ikea and you can pick up the rod at Wal Mart. The total project is a whopping $10. Can't beat that. 
*If* we get the house, we'll be re-carpeting all the bedrooms and the loft upstairs. Justin thinks he wants to wait on the wood flooring but I had to look for inspiration just in case he changes his mind. Dark wood makes my heart go pitter patter. 
Putting the shower curtain higher definitely gives a more warm/rich feeling.
 Just a way to  hide all those pesky laundry baskets to the blind eye :)
Cabinets can either make or break a room. But who wants to spend all that money adding new ones. Solution: stain them and add new fixtures. I will definitely be doing this :)
I'm nervous about my excitement. Since I'm sharing it so publicly, I feel that they are going to call at any minute and say that the bank didn't approve the offer. 

Fingers Crossed for good news calls only!


  1. Fingers crossed for you! I love the cabinet-upgrade, it looks so easy to do!

  2. I love dark wood, too! Especially the floors. Oh man, wish I had beautiful floors like that! Good luck!!! Crossing my fingers for you!

  3. I'm a fan of dark woods also! What a difference that makes by just staining it. I also really like the canopy above the bed! We have a window smack dab in the middle of our bed, too....that would work out perfectly for our bedroom! Thanks for sharing the inspiration.
