" Dream Kitchen."
" Love to wash my hands at that sink!"
" Simply beautiful and elegant to me. White on white. I adore the religious statue."
It rained this morning. It rained while I was working. It rained when I got home. It is still raining. The smell is delicious, cool and fresh. But boy is it wet!!! I seem to have run out of pictures to share so until I stock up or come up with a brainstorm, I am posting some magazine pictures that inspire me. They are quite elaborate in their style, but I love all of them. And even if you do not have a champagne budget (like me), there are still ways to achieve these looks without spending a fortune. Buy a used piece of furniture and paint and distress it for a Frenchy vintage feel. Find some inexpensive religious statues (may take a while-but keep looking) and collect them in odd numbers to display with. Gather old vintage gold gilt frames and cover an entire wall with them (side by side and overlapping). These are a few ways that I like to decorate. Take a picture that you love and copy it and keep it with you for those shopping moments. Pull it out of your purse and try to achieve the same look on your budget. You will be pleasantly surprised at how you can create the rooms of your dreams simply and cheaply. Wow! I think I will head out tomorrow with a picture and see what I can find......
