More parts of the house...

So, I'm re-designing my house in my head from now until closing. I've bought a dining table and chairs, a side chair for the living room, two chairs for the nook area, and a couple decorative items. I'm only buying things I love at this point and I can't wait to see them in the house. I thought I'd show you a couple more views inside the front door...join on a mini tour of 'my first place'...

This is the small, but adorable kitchen. The blue countertops will be gone of course and I've just emailed Layla over at the Lettered Cottage to give me some inspiration on what to do in this space. I'm always so impressed with people who paint their cabinets, but I'm so afraid I'll mess something up and be stuck with ugly painted cabinets! So I can't wait to see her ideas.


I lucked out at Walmart this week when I came across their new Better Homes and Garden's line of curtains and Home Decor. The majority of my house will be creams and whites but I'm incorporating color through the window treatments...for a mere $10 each these valances are going up in my nook area. I love the colors and the scalloped edges.

This is the dining room...I'm trying to win a beautiful white chandelier on ebay right now. I should know in 15 minutes if I win!!


This is my favorite part of the house...the great architectural design and charm of the front of the home. The front door is so pretty too. And I love the high ceilings. It makes a small space feel bigger!



These were the other BH&G drapes I found at Walmart. These are $15 each and they are lined! Amazing deal! I was trying to decide stripes or plaid...I'm going with the plaid. These will be across the living room and dining room. The scraps of fabric are samples I've had for a month (in hopes of having a home this summer!) you can see they perfectly match the drapes I found. I'm going to make pillows, seat cushions for the nook, and cover my dining chairs with a mixture of these fabrics.

I love your new house! I am in the middle of renovations right now so I can't wait to see what other inspirations you post.

I know it is horribly expensive but a dark granite would look great with your cabinets.
