one of the things i've been thinking about doing with "all that time" is decorating a bit around the house. i've always had a fear of decorating. not sure what goes with what. color combinations. and what style i really want.
i've been keeping a board on pinterest called "for the home." i like to pin designs that make me happy. some of them are for my dream home but there is no reason i can't incorporate that into our current home.
here are five things i have in mind.
1. a mantle
the thing is we don't have a fireplace. but this would look great over our tv in the living room. it is a great space to decorate for the season but i love this look for year round. i see us making this happen, and soon.
2. for the kids' bathroom
we remodeled the bathrooms when sofia was born and they are in need of a little uplift. this would be so cute along one of the walls with a towel hook for each one.
3. photo gallery
i love this idea but maybe on a smaller scale. we don't have a wall this big to do something like that. but i'm thinking in one of our hallways with 4x6 photos and 8x10 frames could work.
we have a buffet in our kitchen that is a workspace. i want to add an interesting backsplash to give it a little something special. i'm a huge fan of subway tile and this is just perfect for that area. let's forget the fact that it doesn't go with the other tile already in the kitchen.
5. our bedroom
we recently moved into the smallest room in the house. and that's all we've done. i'm thinking of going with a white bedspread and adding color with pillows, throws and decor. it seems to be the most versatile way to go. and i love the clean look.
we won't be starting any of these projects this weekend. we have a school project to do and a wedding to go to. so i'll keep looking for inspiration until the time is right.
