Loving Right Now

I have to work on this lovely Saturday, so while I try to fill my time today I am scouring Pinterest. Here are some thing I am loving right now…

As always lately, wedding planning is on my mind, along with rustic home ideas, eclectic living rooms with gorgeous coffee tables, and some organization ideas. Speaking of organization, very soon I will have some projects to show you that deal in that area! 🙂

This chandelier is completely awesome! I drool everytime I look at this picture.  Someday I hope I can work up the courage to attempt this DIY project.  For now I call it inspiration and stare longingly at the photo each day.

I immediately fell in love with this gorgeous room!  You all know I can’t resist dark, dramatic walls.  And when paired with another glamorous rustic chandelier?  Well, lets just say I was in heaven!

I can only hope to pull together such a chic room someday! Swoon.

A Rustic Glam Light Fixture

I love the idea of mixing some glamour with rustic elements.  Maybe this isn’t a new idea, but definitely my style!  I recently came accross this gorgeous room.  Particularly, I loved the light fixture and think this could be an easy, yet stunning project. 

 

I found this lovely photo on decor8’s blog, originally from housetweaking.com.  What do you think?  I think I might have to give this a try myself!

Antler Ideas

We have a lot of antlers. A lot.  I happen to love them.  And I love getting inspiration from out in the blog-o-sphere on how to incorporate them into a chic home.  Needless to say, I immediately fell in love with this idea.

 

 

 

This neat chandelier was seen on Material Girls’ blog where they posted about an adult tree house.  See it here:  http://materialgirlsblog.com/chicago/2011/06/01/hanging-out/

Dining Room Inspiration

I found this dining room photo on flickr and just couldn’t resist showing you all.  This room is just awesome!  I love how elegant and glamorous it is, even when paired with the rustic wood table.  I love the mirrors on the table; what a simple yet glam way to dress the room up.  The wall paper makes the room bright, but still in the shades of gray that I love right now!

I took a 75cent basket from the Salvation Army and spray painted it black.  I hung crystals and beads on it and added a length of chain.  I added some mini candles in jars and viola!  We now have a chandelier above the ice cream table on the porch!  I found this idea on Apartment Therapy and think its super cute.  What do you think?
