Cute girl's room

I found these pictures of a cute yet sophisticated ten year old girl's room on one of the blogs I follow.  I love the rug and bedding from Anthropologie, the blue Farrow and Ball paint color, and most of all the white Pottery Barn frames filled with illustrations done by the little girl herself.  To find out more about this room transformation go to:

A few great organizing ideas

I took these pictures last night over at a friend's house.  I love her calendar which she got for free at a local teachers' supply store.  Using different colored markers is a great idea.  Each person can have their own color or you can just work out a system that suits you.  Posting the kids's artwork to cover the door to the laundry room was another great idea.  On the doors leading to her back porch, the kids are allowed to draw with a type of chalk/crayon that wipes off easily with a bit of glass cleaner.  She says it can keep her three little ones occupied for a very long time.  I love going into people's homes and discovering new ideas!

Love these pillows

I think these hooked wool pillows are so awesome.  Love the bright colors and designs.  I especially love the seahorse with the reds and blues and think that it would be fun to design a whole room around these fun colors.

Botanical prints

I love botanical prints and found a few the other day at a local antique store and thought they were just gorgeous.  They would look fabulous in a powder room or a guest bedroom.  This goes along with my theory that every room needs just a bit of green in it somewhere.

Duvet cover from West Elm

I have seen this West Elm duvet cover in person and am seeing it in decorating magazines lately.  I think it is so nice and simple and it looks like you could just dive into it.  Also, it is amazingly well-priced (only $139 for the full/queen size)  You can find it here:
