Beautiful bedrooms. I agree with gingergirl that it is very romantic. I like the one by Coco and Kelly.
Here is another one that I adore:

I love the birch tubes with the glass votive candles!
The rustic look of the tubes combined with the candles is warm and beautiful.
BTW, the Etsy seller Lichenwoods is giving away a set of three rustic wooden candle holders with tea lights as part of houzz's holiday party:

I have a message board on my kitchen's wall and I use it everyday to monitor our family's activities.

The chalkboard looks nice but in many cases after you use it a few times it doesn't look so great:-(

Here is another nice one with a cute frame:

I would recommend something like this:

Simple, clean and beautiful.

It may feel "outdated" but I still think it's a good combination. The light blue and brown dining room by designer Jonathan Berger is gorgeous!

Great post. I love reading and hope that one day I'll be able to dedicate a room just for my books...
Here is how my "dream" library will look like:

LOVE the first photo by country living. The colorful pickles jars with all the whites around it... stunning!

Here are a few other great displays:

I think it looks nice if it's not a big wall. If it's in a bedroom, it can also help with "warming" the room.
Here is a modern bedroom with a wood wall in Hong Kong:

And in the same house another nice wood wall which I find stunning with the white staircase:

Arkay- it sounds really bad...
My husband and I have two very close desks and mine can get pretty messy sometimes... I told him to mind his own desk...and it worked out just fine:-)

Here are two of my favorite double work spaces from New York and Seattle.
(I think that the screen in the first one is a brilliant idea):

Great entry ways! I really like it when the entrance gives you a hint about the house's style...

Here are a few more beautiful entry ways/ foyers that I really like:

I like it when it's all White with a few touches of dramatic color.
I would add a big colorful art like in this example:

http://www.houzz.com/photos/9427/perkinseastman-modern-family-room-san-francisco

or colorful flowers:

Colorful pillows can also look great and break the White.
I'm not crazy about blue- but if that's your color go for it!

I also like the pink one (but my husband will never go with a pink bedroom...)
Here are to other beautiful yellow and pink uses:
1. eclectic kids room- with both colors:

2. Pink bedroom with a few shades of pink:

I agree about the potential and I think that creating a storage area in the hallway can be both useful and pretty.
Here are two other great examples of creative uses of the hallway:

I have a dream that one day, when the kids will grow up, we will have a boathouse and travel around the world...
This is a very cute one. I like the modern sitting area- really cool.
Here is a nice post about houseboats and living at sea:
