HOME-SPIRATION: Herringbone Floors

As a preppy girl myself, I have always loved a little herringbone fabric hanging in my closet. My new obsession now though is the idea of the herringbone pattern in flooring. It is an old craft detail that just looks amazing! This pattern can be used in tile, brick, hardwood, the list goes on and on! Here are my favorite home-spiration images for this amazing look.

HOME-SPIRATION: Texas Chic

I really think the key to decorating a space is know who you are, what design esthetic you like, and finding the perfect pieces for your lifestyle not just getting a bunch of ‘okay’ stuff. This becomes a little bit more tricky when there are two people involved. Compromise on style is probably one of the hardest things I have had to do, but it is possible people! There are certain parts of the house that are more my style, but I am trying to make sure that the places the David spends the  most time in really speak to what he loves too. That is why our first floor and living room area I am hoping one day will really scream Industrial Texas Chic. Now that sounds like a lot going on there, but I have faith it will all work out! Here are some of my favorite home-spiration images for our living room! Let me know what you think!

 

a longhorn skull is definitely a must somewhere in this living room. I am thinking coffee table piece though. But I love this dark wall contrast.

HOME-SPIRATION: Teen Room

I realized over the weekend that I have never really touched on that tricky teen age group and decor! I was lucky enough to have a Dad who painted my bedroom several different colors because I was constantly changing my mind (and after my recent painting endeavor I realize how much work that actually is!) I should have known then that I would fall in love with decor and home styling! Here are a few of my favorite teen room inspirations! Fun, age appropriate and very stylish!
