REINCARNATION: Rustic Chic Living Room

This reincarnation look comes from lots of inspiration searching for our living room. I am craving a cowhide rug and sectional, and on one of my many searches I came across this great living room!

HOME-SPIRATION: Retro Kitchen Chairs

So while David is hard at work doing the renovations, I am of course day dreaming about all the furniture and decor I need to put in to this new space of ours! Our new goal in our eating/living space is to have our kitchen, a dining room, and a living space (before we were using the dining room area as David’s office) Our goal for the kitchen is to have a breakfast nook where David and I can eat together. We already have a great table, so I really want to add some retro chairs and a great rug to make the space complete. Here are some of my favorite home-spiration images for my future breakfast nook.

LOVE!

REINCARNATION: Industrial Pendant Light

So David is quite the handy man around the house these days! Nothing is better than a man who really knows his way around Home Depot (no matter how many trips we take there on a give weekend 😉 ) We are doing small projects around the house that make a BIG difference, and one of those projects is changing out our dated lighted fixtures! I am currently on the hunt for some great light fixtures, and one of them is an industrial pendant light for over my kitchen table. Here are some of my favorite home-spiration images for industrial pendant lights and a few of my favorites that I have found while shopping!

REINCARNATION: Kitchen Island Carts

David and I love to eat. I mean who doesn’t? But what we really love to do is cook. We usually cook dinner together every night, which is a great bonding and catching up time, but we need more counter space (desperately!) So we are thinking about getting a kitchen island cart to add extra storage and much needed counter space for all the fun we have in the kitchen! Ours will be pulling double duty as a kitchen island and a breakfast table for the two of us! Here are some of my favorite home-spiration images for kitchen island carts and a few of the front runners in our search!

REINCARNATION: Home Phone

I know David will laugh really hard at this post! I have been trying to convince him that the “home phone” is coming back, but I have yet to make him a believer. Even though I know that all we would get are telemarketer phone calls, I can’t help but love a good home phone. Here are some of my favorite home-spiration images for home phones and a few great options if you are feeling my home phone love!

REINCARNATION: Tribal Print Rugs

I am a HUGE fan of area rugs! I think they can really make a space complete! I am always reminded of the time I moved in to David’s house and we went on our first Ikea trip and came home with a new rug. The whole space instantly felt cozier and homier! We currently have a neutral tribal print area rug in our living room and I love it! Here are some of my favorite home-spiration images for tribal print rugs and a few of my favorites that you can add to your space!

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.
