The House that Pinterest Built

How did people build and decorate houses before Pinterest? Better Homes and Gardens magazine pages ripped out?? Hmmm....not quite as inspirational I don't think. Although I won't lie I do have a binder full of ripped out magazine pages as well. So anyway I thought I'd share some of my "pins" and ideas for the house. 

One thing I know I'm going to do is a wainscoting in the dining room. 

This white wainscoting on the bottom half of the wall and painting the rest of the wall a dark navy similar to the color below. I figure since I'm obsessed with gray and the rest of my house will be probably completely gray, then maybe I should add a little different color to a few of the other rooms.

I def. know I'm going to do one of the bedrooms in gray stripes, but how cool is this in the laundry room? Or I'm thinking a bright paint on the walls like the turquoise below. Maybe that would make doing laundry a little less dull??

The picture below is what we have given to the guy designing our cabinets. I love the row of drawers next to the small vanity area. 

This picture has almost the exact same vessel sinks we picked out for the master bathroom. I also love the tile in this bathroom. 

I haven't decided what I want to do for mirrors in the master bathroom. I love how sleek these frameless mirrors look. Not sure how I would go about doing this though. May have to look into that a little more. 

And I love this idea for a guest room. So cute and easy!

There is a very small wall in the breakfast nook that I would love to put something like this on. 

And I would love to do a gallery wall like this on the staircase.

I'm having a hard time deciding if I want to paint the front door a color or leave it white. I have always wanted a red front door for some reason. This house looks great with the gray siding, white trim, and red door. 

I think I may have to wait and see what the stone around the door looks like when it goes up before I make that decision. What do you think??


  1. I love your home pinboard. Your actual house is going to be just as gorgeous, I'm sure!


  2. Love all the pinterest pictures of inspiration! It is going to look great!!

    1. Thanks Megan! Hope you and Chris are doing well

  3. I love the red front door will look great with your stone.. I'm going to redo my Laundry room when Corie moves out (haha sorry Corie) I love the bright paint!

  4. I think it will look pretty good with the stone, too. Thanks!

  5. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog, I will keep visiting this blog very often.
