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??
