Can you please tell us about the pink fridge- whether you painted it, how you got that look. Please advise. Thanks!

OK-- one more thing-- my favorite thing in the house is the breakfast bar. We were on a trip to Montreal this summer and I saw a vinyl shower curtain I fell instantly in love with-- I used velcro to adhere it to the back of styrofoam (which looks like aluminum!) and used velcro to adhere that to the back of the breakfast bar (in case my husband hated it and thought I lost my mind! I could take it off with no fuss) I love how it came out and it cost less than $20 to do!

Thank you all for our comments. It's the first time I have ever done anything like this, you feel so exposed. In a good way, I suppose... I've never had anyone I don't know comment on my decorating. It was really an eye-opening experience. I HATE the kitchen cabinets too- my husband has suggested taking up donations for the $25,000 to replace them! :-)

I live in the suburbs as you may have well expected. I understand that the house/design might look a bit disjointed. Because of the 10 picture maximum I was not able to show a lot of the house. We have a 1980's white high gloss bathroom with all of my husband's 80's bands album covers represented (his Valentine's day present last year). A movie theater in red with a collection of 3-D movie posters, etc. It was hard to just chose a few and I know the bedroom and dining room looks like it comes from a different house, I did it more to show the color. I also have a plum and chartreuse living room that's cool.

In 20 years when the kiddies are out of the house we will move to the bungalow in the city and put all of our funky finds there. In the meantime... we will just have to live in our house and do the best we can-- we are slaves to a good school system and victims to a big house with too many collections! :-) but... given that houses on all sides of us are traditional, interior decorated to the extreme and filled with magnolias... I think I get away with quite a bit! Even if the only neighbors that give glowing comments are the high school babysitters and my son's 8 year old friends who want to know why we buy so many bobble heads and ask how much they cost!

Thanks for all of your comments and I look forward to any suggestions you may have!

I love the coffee table. Do you mind telling me where you got it? Also love the barkcloth print.

I like the lamp, everything else looks like it would smell like mothballs- yuck!

This house is so much fun! It's obvious she's balancing a family life and still trying to make her home fun and inviting. I love the use of color. The brown in the bedroom is so smart and warm, the dining room is sophisticated and tasteful and the collections really pop in the kitchen and the family room. I wish I could see the rest of the house. How fun!
