trip to ikea…decisions, decisions…

By in Inspiration & Ideas, Master Bedroom

I’m taking a trip to Ottawa, Ontario this coming Saturday with a friend to go to IKEA! It’s about an hour away from me but it’s the closest IKEA there is to my home! I wish there was one closer but I guess a boy will have to dream. I’m looking for a mirror and […]

Does a decent full length mirror for under $50 exist? If so could someone point it out? My nice new bedroom rug is beginning to look more and more like a dream…

bedroom ceiling lamp

By in Anna Says..., Inspiration & Ideas, Master Bedroom

upstairs hallway light

By in Inspiration & Ideas, Upstairs Hallway

I’m thinking of this light for the upstairs hallway. I need something big and bright because it is dark up there. Plus the ceiling is about 10 feet high so I think I pendant light will look better than a flush light. Does anyone own one of these or have seen it in person? Let […]

paint colors

By in Anna Says..., Inspiration & Ideas, Master Bedroom

I figure paint colors deserve their own post at this point, right? I was thinking about floor paint, and I pulled out my BM paint chip stash and found the PERFECT color: Palladian Blue. It’s a pale blue-green with a bit of gray in it, and it’s totally gorgeous. You’re going to look at the […]
