Designery Things I Like

I know, it's a great title.  Unfortunately, no one won my toddler giveaway.  Edward gave me a big hug yesterday and that's pretty much enough to melt my heart so I decided to keep him.  But I am working with about half of my brain now.  Occupational hazard, I guess.  (I jest because I spend most hours of my day trying to snuggle the little man and usually can't bear to be away from him for more than an hour or two.  I actually like him quite a lot)

Anyway, I've been trying to reorganize my Pinterest Boards.  I find myself drawn to certain elements over and over so I thought I'd try organizing some of my inspiration images by elements rather than by room.

And now I'm going to share them with y'all!

* Nooks *

* Chintz *

Good Lord, I love girly things! When I see rooms with these elements, little cartoon hearts form in my eyeballs and cartoon bluebirds fly and tweet around my head.  I should probably add an  * elephants * category.  What else? Maybe a * millwork * category.  Like my brother who once told us, "but I love lots of girls," I love lots of designery things.  We're a family of love.  What are y'all's favorite design elements, colors, details, etc? I'd love to know what makes you swoon! 


  1. I would say the French blue ceiling is my favorite. I would have been too affraid to try something like that on my wood ceiling without seeing it first.

  2. I love girly things too...and can see i must pay a visit to your pin boards. Great, another thing to keep my butt glued to this chair like a pari of shackles when my mounting list is growing by the minute of things needing to get done! OK maybe tonight.....when the house is quiet and I have peace and a clear head, I will take a peek, becuase I can see I cannot stop at just one:)

  3. Well, I am swooning looking at your choices. I love the sweet and romantic look..but I also love clean lines and a fresh, crisp look. I love a bit of whimsy thrown in for the kiddos, too. xo Diana

  4. I love so many different styles and things--that's why I have a hard time with my own home!!! I love it all!

(i.e. Your Comment: what's up with the Biebs and Selena Gomez? My Reply: I don't know but it's keeping me up at night. He's so cryptic on Instagram, it's hard to really know)
