HOME-SPIRATION: Cast Iron Tubs

David and I have really always been fans of HGTV and The DIY Network, but with our move to Cincinnati and this terribly cold winter we really have fallen in love with so many shows! We love to watch Rehab Addict with Nicole Curtis, and all of the amazing things she does in restoring old homes. We see cast iron tubs and claw foot tubs on that show all of the time and I really love the idea of a cast iron tub in a gorgeous bathroom. I don’t know if this type of tub would really fit in at our new build in Plano, TX but they do look gorgeous in all the redone historic homes. Here are some of my favorite home-spiration image for cast iron tubs.

REINCARNATION: Stone Firepit

David and I have been obsessing about getting back to Dallas and fixing up our patio! We both love the idea of sitting around a fire pit drinking a glass of wine on our patio. Here are some of my favorite home-spiration images of stone fire pits and a few of my favorite options for our home!

SEE! This is exactly how I picture David and I on our patio. Though ours is definitely not this big!

HOME-SPIRATION: Ladder Shelves

So of course like every interior design junkie I love to watch HGTV and DIY network television shows to get my design fix! David and I have recently been watching Rehab Addict with Nicole Curtis! Love her and how you can follow a house from her first purchase to complete restoration. She LOVES to use every single part of the house and rarely throws anything out. She is always repurposing items. Here is my Rehab Addict inspired post with my favorite home-spiration images of repurposed ladder shelving.
