One of the highlights this year was the beautiful lighting. It seemed to be the trend from house to house.
How this makes me want to rip out our ceiling fan! But, if I want my husband to sleep in the same room, it's not going anywhere.
I loved these pendant lights against the dark cabinets.
There were also alot of great tablescapes:
Other ideas & rooms that I liked. . . .
This was one of my favorite rooms, and such an attainable look. I like the idea of framing maps (or other artwork) and floating a large gallery wall behind a bed. It makes such a statement without spending a lot of money. . .
This open entertainment unit is a great solution for those of us with a big bare wall in the family room. It fills alot of wall space visually without being too heavy. I also like how they used the lamps to flank the TV.
I really liked the textured rug, but the bright artwork really stood out. This could be a great art project for your kids.
More bright framed art in the same living room. Again, how easy it would be for your kids to recreate these pieces with scissors and construction paper.
I really liked this flower medallion bedding from Crate and Barrel. Perfect for a guest room!
Maybe not the prettiest but definitely the most practical idea--an ironing board countertop, right above your washer and dryer! We saw several laundry rooms contained in the master bedroom closets on the tour.
I loved this little lucite table in the powder room.
This silver bamboo chair (in a girl's bedroom) was too cute! There was also a matching etagere stand in the bathroom.
This was my favorite living room on the tour. It's casual, yet all of the mirrored accents give it a little sparkle. And, the curtains mounted on the chrome rods were really striking.
Hope you enjoyed the tour!
