more inspiration...

entryway, via high street market

i'm obsessed. i can't stop looking endlessly through my favorite sites for design inspiration. mostly it's a way to avoid packing. ugh. i really want to paint the new house all white, but i think it will have to wait. any paint recommendations for a good bright white paint, like above? i need to repaint our kitchen cabinets white before we move in, and probably will do the walls too. right now we pulled up some carpet in the kids playroom and found painted wood floors that need repainting. i'd like to paint bathrooms too. i've also ben looking at light fixtures... love this site! i love these colors in the photo above... grey and white and black. the light fixture is great. the floors... amazing! here are some more recent favorites...


pretty bath, can't remember where this image is from?

we are thinking of moving our clawfoot tub upstairs and adding a shower to it. also some kind of beading on the wall and maybe ceiling? hmm...

love the black tub and floor color, via design sponge

love, love this kitchen from designer nancy fishelson (it was her own kitchen). we really want to add a window in our kitchen (you can see it below). there aren't really any windows in the downstairs that look into the back yard. i'd be willing to lose some upper cabinets for the light and view it would add. right now we have a giant laundry room/pantry for storage. eventually we will remodel and that will become part of the master bedroom and bath so we will have to add more storage to the kitchen though. i really want an island like this with seating.

what do you think of the multi paned windows? we are replacing our windows upstairs, which means we have to decide what kind of windows we will eventually replace all teh windows with! we are trying to decide between the multi paned, or a simpler design, with one line down the middle? ugh, too many choices. i'm terrible at making choices!

okay, time to stop dreaming and face the reality of what actually needs to be done now!
