i'm ready...

for some inspirational photos that make my heart pitter patter...

how about you?

no matter what happens...we all need inspiration, right?

ones that help me refocus on the end result perhaps...we will see...it will take me a lot longer than expected...but that's okay!

I've found a few with some very specific ideas...that I fell in love with the moment I saw them...

but some of two of my inspirational words for the week....ones to carry me through the rest of the planning are:

cozy 

and   

dreamy

First thing is first...

I was looking through photos...and saw this one...our exact bed...
it made me laugh and smile...
did you see that chandi?....exuding more beauty than I can describe in words...
the girls love it because the "so-called crystal knobs" create rainbows from the sunlight....
and it is magical to them...

and in this picture...I love the curtains behind the bed...
we don't have a window behind our bed...but i would love 3 white chippy paint shutters to go there...and then a big curtain rod...with white white curtains...to make it extra dreamy on either side of shutters you know...

creating the idea of a window but not really...


speaking of dreamy...this feels dreamy...and cozy...the concept I love...

and I haven't started looking yet for this...but when the time comes...I want one of our side tables to be like this...
I cannot believe I found an inspiration photo of exactly what I want...well the color I want is all white or my favorite beachy blue I would do a happy giddy dance over...

and this last one I found it make me smile...and hopefully I can get some inspiration from it for Madison's room as we finish it up...
left on her list is...
a new lamp
and a fabric headboard we are going to make sometime early Spring {I hope}...

Here's to a week of inspiration...

all photos are courtesy of Country Living...

Most of those pics are in my inspiration file! That child's room is just adorable -- I've never seen that one before. Love it!

It's so fun re-doing rooms but it's so hard for me to be patient. I want it all done right away and we all know it takes awhile to find the right pieces. I'm sure you are having fun dreaming it all up :)

LOVE the inspirational decorative photos! How cool that you finally found a bed :)
It was great seeing you the other day! In spring we should get together at a park or something for the girls to play.
Come see! I figured out how to create my blog button!!

I love the dreamy and cozy one. It reminds me of something that would be in a beach house.
