All my curtains are white anyway but my neighborhood rules say "white to the road" for everyone. I wouldn't have had a choice...

I love white floor to ceiling drapery more than chocolate!

I am going to try this tomorrow in my teenage daughters room! She has a shabby chic shower curtain that she bought at target for $7 and has been looking for somewhere to use it that doesn't involve sewing.
thanks soooooo much for this post!

I went for "mostly" white in my work-space with a yellow and white striped wall (the signature print for my business) I like the white because the messes I make while creating seem not to look so messy in a clean white space.

I have those cabinet pulls and I totally love them! They are like jewelry... some people like a lot and some a little. I like a lot of jewelry and really big statement cabinet pulls.

I just spray painted a load of vases white with a glossy paint. They look great and you cant tell they were different colors after the third coat of paint.

I like them to mix with my other "shiny" decor. I have enough sparkle, I think they would add some nature to all the glam of Christmas.

This is super. I never thought of a lampshade as a way to bring in color. I guess it is because you don't see very many colored shades at Target, Walmart etc... I have an all black and white color pallet and wanted to bring in some yellow. I didn't just want to sprinkle yellow clutter around to make the impact. The only thing I could think of was pillows and vases. Now I will add yellow lampshades and it will be perfect!

I got a love seat from and changed the legs, making them taller. We love sitting side by side on the love seat both on our laptops, then using the table for dining.

I had such big plans at the beginning of the summer... now I have to throw together something quick or I won't have had a party all summer! I am going to have a hamburger/veggie burger cook out but eat inside cuz it is way too hot here in Texas. Now, I have to find a cute table cloth and flowers and I am all set.

I love your house! I think that white mouldings in the living room would really tie things together. The big rug moved into the dining room under the table would be a good idea to try. It might or might not work... It is a beautiful rug! You could use a shade of the rug color on your dining chairs. I like the yellow with the blue that you have already. Work a little on your artwork, even paint something original and big for the living room. Make it light and white/brownish (I think...) If you have any decorative friends, have one or two over to help you "redesign" after you paint the mouldings. It really helps to have someone move things for you and give lots of input. Two friends are better than one, that way no one will take it personally if you don't like their suggestions. It is team work!

These are great ideas!!!
I agree with so many of them.
1. Remove upper cabs over bar
2. Paint fireplace white to balance cabinets out
3. new ikea light fixture over table
4. Ikea knobs in nickel or steel
5. cheap glass tile backsplash from
6. white shade in the kitchen or cool print curtain (has to be really good or better kept white)
7. big glass bowl of limes on the table
8. large DIY art over the fireplace using some orange green and blue. This could be abstract and really fun.
9.New faucet from
10. gray wallcolor extending into living room
11. WhiteFlokati rug from Ikea in the living room that keeps the funky feel but doesn't compete with the art or the orange.
You are going to have so much fun with this house!!!!
