Model Home Decorating Ideas

Posted on

One of my most favorite ways to get decorating ideas is to go model home hopping.  That means I take my camera and my BFF and we find all the new construction model homes and take a tour.

The best thing to do, if you model home hop, is to be honest with the sales person there.  Don’t pretend to be a potential home buyer.  It’s a waste of their time.  Tell them you are just out looking at model homes for fun and they will leave you alone.  They are actually used to people looking a model homes for decorating ideas.

Here are some pictures I snapped yesterday.  Now I have even more ideas running through my head! 😉

bar

The butler’s pantry in this home is also a bar area.

bathroom cabinet color

I took this picture because I liked the color of the cabinet. Notice the plain, boring mirror on the wall! Tisk Tisk! 🙂

bedroom ceiling

I don’t need to say anything about this photo, but I will… Look at that ceiling!!! Love it.

bedroom wallpaper

The wall behind the bed is covered in wall paper. Makes a great accent wall!

dining room windows

Look at the arched windows in this photo.

dining room

The ceiling in this photo is covered in wallpaper. The back wall is painted a chocolate brown. I’m not a fan of dining rooms, but this is a pretty space.

framed bathroom mirror

This builder did frame out the mirror. Do you see how they added an extra horizontal board?

kitchen eating area

A cute kitchen eating area.

master bedroom

Bright and happy master bedroom.

pool room with wood beams

Beamed ceilings! Ahhh… someday.

red bedroom

In this bedroom, board and batten was used as a headboard effect. This has my head spinning with ideas!

staircase

Beautiful staircase. The dark wood against the white! Love.

upstairs hallway

I took this picture because I like the hallway floor. Although the different levels could be dangerous in the dark! (If you’re me!)

white kitchen

White/Cream cabinets.

hanging kitchen light

Love this lighting over the kitchen table.

island hanging lights

These gorgeous lights are hanging over a kitchen island. I wish I would have asked where they came from.

Have you ever model home hopped?

DIY Project Ideas for Summer

Posted on

Pinterest has been a fun and addictive place to get ideas and inspiration.  The problem with me is that I pin something awesome to my board, and I never see it again.  I’m collecting, not actually doing.

So I went through my DYI Ideas and Craft Ideas board and picked out some of the projects that I may actually try this summer.  Lords knows I need to keep myself busy or I will go coocoo.  Many of these projects are great gift ideas too.

Photo Frame Display 

I have so many un-used frames.  Spray painting them all one color would help unite them.

This makes me smile!  How cute it would be to give to grandparents. 

Map Decorated Candles

The map is ModPodged to the candle.  I love the idea of taking a section of a map from your favorite vacation and gluing to the candle.
