Inspiration for French Doors

Hooked on Houses

We have French doors very much like these in our master bedroom and I adore them but they don't leave much for privacy so when I saw how someone took drapery to not only frame the doors in a tasteful way but they also can do double duty by closing them for the sometimes needed privacy. Now only if there was away to keep nose prints off the glass panes from pups.

More Inspiration for Kitchen

Cote de Texas

This kitchen has the function of a galley kitchen but still have the feel of a large kitchen. Like the cabinets too.
Cote de Texas

This is the same kitchen just a view facing the dining area. Very well done.

Inspiration for the Grandkids room

I have two granddaughters and sometimes they like to come for overnights, I have enjoyed some of those times and have given thought to how to make it memorable for them so when they have grown and look back they can tell their kids the great times they had at Nana's. Of course that will be many many years from now (LOL). I'm not sure we will do up a bunk bed like this, it would depend if we will have the space to keep it.

Inspiration for Something different

Cote de Texas

The colors in my home are mostly whites and soft pale colors because after years of living in a house that was shadow over by large trees that grew around it and trimmed in dark wood I was delighted to move into a home where it's light and airy. I still like having a light and airy feel to this home but wouldn't mind finding a corner somewhere to do something like this. It almost makes me feel like sitting down, crawling up with one of my granddaughters and reading a book.

Inspiration for more Closet Ideas

If there is the room for it putting in cabinets would make for a clean cut look in a closet. I've got to find away to use this idea in my closet.

Inspiration for a Different kind of Headboard

I really like this idea because the picture rail allows one to change arrangements at a whim without making new wholes in the wall and without buying a new bed. The cute saying below it is adorable, wonder if any of my family would notice.

Inspiration for a Walk-In Closet

I don't claim to have this many clothes and shoes but it sure would be nice to have the closet to fit the imagination.

A beautiful and functional Kitchen

Ina Garten has it all figured out when it comes to kitchen design and functionality, I've always like the idea of a galley kitchen for the function and space saving, but usually didn't like the design problems that they restrict to. This kitchen has the best of both worlds. "How great is that."

Inspiration for a Living Room 2

I'm looking for ideas for each side of our fireplace which right now are pretty much blank walls. If we do something like this it would mean putting in windows and a little more light wouldn't be so bad.

Like this too with a hutch on each side of the fireplace and it would be a little less work then putting in windows.

This is very much the same idea as the one above.

Inspiration for a Laundry Room

We have near the finish of the Laundry closet and I'm thinking of having hubby put in cabinets above the washer and dryer to store away supplies. Like the TV idea in picture number two.

Inspiration for a dining room 2

Instead of buying a sideboard and hutch I'm thinking getting some cabinets that match the kitchen and use glass panels in the doors for the upper cabinets and base cabinets with wide draws then put in a wood counter top. Also like the idea of beadboard for the backsplash.

Inspiration for a Girls Room 2

I would like to figure out away to make this work as a girls room when my granddaughters are here and then an office for all the other times.
