dream house ideas....for the moment :)

I have a whole folder on my computer dedicated to my inspiration design ideas. I love looking through the pictures when I want to dream about my future house. :) Which is a long ways down the road... haha!

I love porches...and the look of older houses.

Entering into the house: love the bench...with the hooks above and space for displaying pictures

Choosing between all my kitchen pictures was too hard so I had to include more than one :)

I really like the painted cabinets...almost can't believe I'm saying that...used to be such a firm believer in solid wood cabinetry. My mind is opening to new ideas! And I like the bookshelf at the end of the island. Handy for cookbooks and other items you might want to display.

I really like the wall paint color in this kitchen...should be no surprise to those who know me! It's in my favorite color family: turquoise :) Also like the chalkboard detail on the side of the cabinet.

The blue subway tiles grabbed my attention here...and the bamboo curtains mixed with the white cabinetry. Gives a good grounding to the kitchen.

In this kitchen, I like the ceiling detail and how the lower cabinets are painted a different color than the other cabinets. And you can catch a bit of the farmhouse sink...they are my FAVORITE!

And so this post doesn't turn so long....I'll be back tomorrow with pictures of my dream living room, bedroom and bathroom ideas!
