We color coded books on our shelves. It really dresses up the old white book shelves and adds more color to the room.

my kitchen is painted red (we're renters and it was like that when we moved in). I used to not love it, but it's grown on me. It's one of my favorite rooms in the house, feels cozy, even though it's a kitchen.

I love a kitchen that has a lot of character. It tends to be one room in the house where people let the cabinets, appliances, etc. take over and don't always include personal touches.

My mom sold the house my family had lived in since I was a year old, last year (I'm 27 now). It was an extremely emotional experience for me and my sister. So many memories in one place. I will always consider that house, the street, the neighborhood, my home.

I love the books organized by color. It's a great way to make your books stand out and bring more color into the room.

Oooh. I want to go to Australia so badly! I just started a new job, working with a start-up that's and online fashion retailer for the Australian/NZ market, so there may be several trips in my future. I just need to figure out how I can make it to one of these places for a few days.

I think I would need to see it in action to decide, but it looks super cute when it's still.

I always wanted a doll house as a little girl. Now, I want one as a grown up girl too! This is amazing.

I grew up in CA, very close to the original TJ's. Now, I live in Colorado and there aren't any here. So so sad :(

I'm getting married next year in Estes Park. All of my friends joke (or maybe they're serious) that we should spend our wedding night at The Stanely. I think I'll pass.
