A Treehouse in your Bedroom!

OK, its not an actual treehouse...but its close!

Can you imagine sharing a room with your sibling...but at the end of the day retreating to your own little treehouse/clubhouse within the bedroom?  I want to do this

What an AWESOME shared children's room.

Places to Rest your Head

We just bought some blackout shades and new curtains for our master bedroom and holy cow, it has made all of the difference in the world.  Dark and beautiful = perfect sleeping accommodations.  Plus we have the MOST amazing mattress.  And finally, I just treated myself to a much needed new pillow; down of course. 

So our master is in good shape right now.  And having 4 young children I have found that the last place in the house we ever pay attention to is our master retreat.

This led me to a few favorite places to rest your head.  Aren't these inspirational spaces?

The furnishings in this space make me swoon.  That chandelier?  Perfection :).  It feels like a calm, elegant and restful place.

These twin beds pushed together are perfection.  Such a darling girls bedroom, right?

Ohhhhh that gorgeous BLUE!  And the hand painted tree on the headboard area?  Its powerful but still restful.  Divine.

What makes your sleeping space perfect for YOU?

Back to School Printables

In honor of my kids returning to school this week and my little ones starting preschool, I thought this idea was brilliant.  Just click, print and create a photo moment with your kids, capturing their back to school day.

Love it!

I think I'm also going to set these on the kids chairs on the first day of school; kind of a congratulations you're now in ____ grade thing...

Hole to Another Universe!

Yes, I will be buying this.  How AWESOME for a kids bedroom or playroom?  Or even better, in a random place like the powder room?  The possibilities are endless!

Your Laundry Room - You CAN have it all!

My laundry room/pantry/hub is the hardest working room of the house and gets the least amount of credit.  It is also not a terribly attractive room; I haven't taken the time to decorate or really clean it uncover its full potential.

That is why when I see pictures or posts of great laundry rooms, I always feel inspired.

For example, this laundry room has had the upper cabinet panels jigsawed out and chicken wire installed in its place.  The result is airy charm...while still maintaining function.  LOVE this idea.

Then there is this genius example; the homeowner added slide out laundry baskets.  Seriously, most brilliant idea ever, right?!

And then for sheer BEAUTY, check out this laundry room.  Black cabinets, black countertop over top black front loading washer and dryer.  The effect is very clean and classic.  And lovely!

Do you feel inspired yet?  Ready to make some changes or updates to your laundry area?
