I agree, these rooms do seem a little TOO white in the photos. Though I have been to the Amalfi Coast and I think that if you were there standing in the room you would feel different. The ocean and landscape are so vibrant there it's nice to have a simple room so that you can take in the gorgeous view.

Not sure about that one specifically but pier 1 has a very similar one in store right now.

There are specific markers for this use that come in a wider range of colors. You can buy them at craft stores I believe. I use them where I work all the time.

Uh am I the only one who thinks the floating stairs are actually floating stairs? You can see the tile floor between the bottom two treads! Or is only part of it floating?

Lol I work at Pier 1. We sell ridiculous amounts of these chairs. We even have a double papasan which is basically a loveseat. They are comfortable - but kinda ugly. However they do carry a white-washed frame now which actually looks a million times better!

I have to destroy many items at the store I work at. We can lose our jobs for it. The biggest issue is people dumpster diving and then trying to return those items. Where I work we take hammers and spray paint to broken furniture. Also shelf goods get thrown and smashed until they aren't recognizable. At our store we actually aren't allowed to sell anything past 50% off so if it really is damaged we have to throw it out.

It sickens me.

Set timers at 20 minute intervals to know how much work you have done. If it wasn't much then pick up the pace.

I actually liked the sofa before I saw that picture...

I check etsy first all the time! I live in Kansas and the only good stores are a 2 hour drive from where I live.

Now if only the US ikea website had the vinstra bed..

i mostly only wear black clothing because it's easy and it looks good.. though i have a tendency to wear bright colored jewelry or shoes.
i think i could do all black clothing. and i'd like to have a black car. i do have a black dog. but decor wise no way. i'm still living in the room i designed in high school.. which is BRIGHT yellow & green striped walls with black furniture. my dream is to have an all white bedroom.. plus i just love color too much.
i'm rambling so i'll stop now.. those 9.5 hour days get to me...

I've never really cared for their candles. Candles in jars just bug me.

I work at Pier 1 right now so I enjoy my discount... white thyme is probably my favorite right now and it's a soy candle! It's a filled candle but it's the kind I could reuse.

I definitely agree with what most have said, decorating for home is totally different than retail. I work at a large home furnishings store and we received all of our Halloween merchandise today! We also are already planning for Thanksgiving and our first two major shipments of Christmas merchandise will be in the store the first two weeks of Octobers. Stores want to give the customers time to find what they want.

There was museum I went to in Napoli that had many statues like those. It was really neat!

I like it, but I totally agree that the counter and the cabinets do not match it at all. They should have gone all out with it.
