Pinterest is the best. and the worst. the very worst. It's the worst because it makes me want to do more than I have time and money to do. It is the best because I find all sorts of inspiration. Today I am sharing a few of my favorite pins as of late and the inspiration for projects that are looming on the horizon...if I can just find the time! 1. Mantels, mantels, mantels.
I have a bit of a mantel surprise coming your way, blogosphere. I love mantels, and although we bought a house without a fireplace, you better bet this girl is gonna find a way to decorate a mantel (or two). It may or may not be sitting in our garage right now--waiting for some love. Which of these mantels is your favorite? Links: mantel 1 / mantel 2 / mantel 3 / mantel 4
2. Coffee Bar
One of our favorite parts of home ownership is hosting guests, and we love that the basement can easily become a guest suite of sorts. We have a second personal coffee maker (in addition to the Keurig in the kitchen), and I intend to create a little coffee bar complete with snacks and maybe even a mini fridge to hold water bottles and such when guests are hanging out in the basement! My main concern is that we might decide to move down to the basement.
I am still learning what I love and how I want my house to look. I tend to gravitate toward cool colors, lots of textures, subtle pops of patterns, and a mix of modern and antique. Here are some of the rooms that have been inspiring me lately.
