One of my very most favorite things to do is design and decorate. I love leafing through magazines like Architectural Digest, Better Homes and Gardens, House Beautiful, and I enjoy getting really great ideas from my two personal favorite catalogues, Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware. It's fun for me to dream and design in my head, although sometimes I think the people around me (I'm not naming any names, but you know who you are!) get really tired of me talking about my improvements all the time. I know I can't do everything I dream up, and it's not that I'm not grateful for what I have, I just really enjoy thinking of ways to change things up a little.
My dining room started out with white blinds, no shades, and these walls I couldn't seem to put anything with.
Before too long, I switched out my rug for one that matched a little better and got some awesome rust-colored curtains with a unique square curtain rod.

Today, I finally got the light fixture hung, and with a few more decorative pieces, I think the dining room is finally coming together.
