motivational design week, day 1

my girl claire over at hearthandmade suggested to me that i do some design posts while i'm being all busy and house-oriented. she is a little genius. and she's super crafty--if you havent checked out her blog, you really need to!

so here is day 1. i thought we'd start simple (ha!): living rooms.

all pictures are from

what is your living room style? i would consider my ideal style to be eclectic, but ours will probably end up contemporary-ish... (obviously all of our future house design/makeovers will be documented and shown here for any [un]interested parties to view. hahaha)

awesoooooome! i just know you're going to come up with something cool and clever.

i love that stripey couch!

i wish our living room was a little more 'design-y' but we're having trouble finishing it. we've got deep teal walls, white trim. yellow oriental rug and a gray sectional. we need....stuff on the walls. sigh. it's hard!

i should show you photos then you can give me clever tips. :)

The second last one is amazing. I just now realized how much I love big, open concepts. Thanks for sharing!

thanks for the shout out! i love the mustardy colours up at the top. Needing some more of that colour in my life i think

I like how many rooms with cow-hide-like rugs you picked!

I'd say my living room is... "we had to cram everything into one room since our house is so small."

It's an up-and-coming style. Just you wait for it to be featured on HGTV.
