A continuation of some of the projects and renovations that are swarming around in my head and the inspiration behind them.
5. Get the look I am going for in my Great Room…WHITE!
Some might say that those that do not use color are afraid of color. I happen to have a major fetish for white and a bit of a fear. With twin boys that are three and a half, I think my apprehensiveness is some what valid. Yet I look at so many decor blogs and see homes with lots of lovely, beautiful white and YES children live in them. The trick to pulling off a room in white seems to be texture. I am going to let go of my inhibitions and go for it. Now to figure out how to do it on a budget and a DIY mentality.

7. Finally decide on a place for the black and white photo wall and DO IT!
Our home is missing pictures of our family and I have wanted a wall of photos for as long as I can remember. I love black and whites!

8. Complete the finishing touches on the office redo
My husband’s finest work to date is complete and I must add some finishing decorative touches so that I can reveal it to you!

With all of these ideas it looks like I had better go get to work! We will just have to see how quickly they go. It is warming up and I am ready to play in the dirt and well there is always the budget thing to factor in! 😉
To tag back to the guest post shared by Heidi from Show Some Decor earlier today, it is about making our home reflect us, our personalities, being well lived in, keeping the things we love, and getting rid of those we that we do not! What do you currently have in your home that you love that you could pull out to decorate and view daily? Is there some thing that scares you about decorating like my trepidation with white…choosing paint colors, painting a piece of furniture, incorporating “new” to you items (aka second hand or vintage), taking on a DIY project? Would you consider taking a leap of faith to make your house the home you dream of? There is not much that can not be fixed!
