DORM ROOM MAKEOVER!
DORM ROOM MAKEOVER! (THIS PHOTO HAS INSPIRED ME TO DO A WHOLE DORM ROOM POST -LATER THIS WEEK)

I love this next one, a “sultry” bedroom makeover from lilikoijoy.com. The balance of light and dark is just enough…everything works …and I have to say, the longer I live the more I am convinced that simple is best when it comes to bedding, you can always accent with the pops of color and pattern, but look how inviting this room is!

I am crazy for this book headboard..so inventive so “ANTHROPOLOGIE”  and so easy to replicate! Who does not have some books lying around!

diy-headboard-projects/ LOVE THIS HEADBOARD BUT THIS IS ONE OF THOSE “PINS” THAT GOES TO A BLOG THAT HAS PHOTOS AND NO LINKS..NAUGHTY NAUGHTY…ANYONE KNOW THE ORIGIN OF THIS?

YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE THE “BEFORE” WHEN YO SEE THIS ONE!!!!AMAZING! I saw this kitchen transformation a while back, it has bounced around and been featured on a number of blogs…you will know why as soon as you see it. The pasrt that inpresses me the most is that the ORIGINAL FOOTPRINT has remained essentially the same. This is a TRUE MAKEOVER in my book…where color, texture, lighting, styling and creativity abound!
