rooms I like

With this nothing new challenge I've become more creative and more focused on figuring out how to decorate my home. I'm on Apartment Therapy a lot lately. I love apartmenttherapy.com! Here are a few of my favorites.

These nurseries are the only ones that are "matchy" or have a consistent style or color scheme of the ones I'm posting. I am obsessed with this afghan. All those colors are invigorating and delightful. I want to make something like this for my next baby.

I posted a link to this a while ago and I still love it.

The rest are more eclectic. I generally like a good variety of things in a room. These are styles that I would like to live in. I'm not the type that is going to have a grand plan and stick to it (I rarely stick a plan...I keep things fluid and I relish in spontaneity). I like to be able to see something I love and put it in the room just because I love it. I don't want to have to leave something out just because it doesn't go with a specific theme or style. I love this wall display. I like how there is so much white in this room, but it is still so colorful.

I like the variety of color and texture here.

I love the teal with the yellow and those curtains are awesome (but discontinued at Ikea)! I like how this vintage chair is paired with something funky.

Again, white, but not bland.

I'm considering chairs like these to replace my shabby chic ones. I like the mixture of styles. It makes things more interesting to me.

And these last 3 are all of one room. I love this room, although I'm not a fan of that huge piece of art on the wall. I love how it is huge (I really want a huge piece of art for my white wall, but I wouldn't choose that one. I do, however, like the funky mixed with traditional.


  1. I agree with you about that afghan. I want one too. Lets make some together, okay? And that second nursery is perfect in so many ways.

    I am also drawn to lots of white with pops of color and a mix of old and new. I've always admired your style and decor.

  2. I have always been in love w that blue nursery. So light and colorful. I finally got on pinterest so I am going to pull all of my favorite rooms out of favorites on my computer and pin them.

    I need a little room inspiration every once in a while.
