House Decor UPDATE...

I have spent quite a bit of time (in the last few weeks) re-deocorating my house.  my roommate Lindsey moved out a few weeks ago, and along with her went quite a bit of the furniture and almost everything on the walls.  so much disappeared, in fact, that we were echoing when speaking downstairs (obviously the sound absorbing ceiling is ineffective).  anyway, my brother sister and sweet niece came to visit last weekend and i really wanted things to be cute for them...so i GOT GOING.  most of my ideas are from other blogs - but obviously they are re-worked and re-vamped to meet my specific needs...SO FUN dreaming...can't wait to have my own home someday where i can paint walls and really go to town with wall decor!!!
the three frames concept turned out even cuter than i imagined it would.  it was SO easy and thanks to IKEA so cheap too!!  these are on the wall opposite the front door - so it is a great place to add a pop of colour (and yes, color looks better with the "u" in there - ask my stylist friend Amber - she knows!)
here is a close-up of the "I SPY"/eye chart i created that is in the center frame... I SPY WITH MY LITTLE EYE A PLACE I CAN CALL HOME
the trio of LOVE prints may be one of my favoite decor additions thus far.  i LOVE how bright the yellow is against the beige walls and since I'm a total sucker for anything TENDER, it fits my personality perfectly!
the aqua typewriter doesn't belong to me - but i'm in LOVE with it! I actually asked my good friend Gan to hung a black one down for me...i want a typewriter in my house FOREVER. and the apothecary filled with buttons and the miniature shopping cart are in a close second and i imagine will be making appearances in numerous places throughout my houses for years to come!
and we CANNOT forget to include a sweet place for Ina to reside...and her cookbooks look FABULOUS sitting next to the yellow pitcher.

yes...i think the house looks better already! can't wait to keep dreaming and adding more...tomorrow maybe i'll include close ups of the prints themselves...you know, they deserve a little highlight :)
