My Pinterest Home (Living Room/Sunroom)…

My dream Pinterest Living Room..

The first picture is from Ikea.. I am absolutely in love with the vellinge dark blue ektorp couch! The way that they have it decorated is also just so cute!

Image

I love how cozy and how much textiles are in this comfortable living room.. it’s just so romantic and looks like the perfect place to take a relaxing nap! haha

Image

Image

LOVE the way they have pops of color in the next couple pictures! I cannot help but fall in love with any room that uses pops of color in a amazing design!

Image

This couch looks like the most comfortable couch EVER.. couldn’t you imagine a cozy movie night cuddling?

Image

These floors are UH-MAZING! I want nothing more then amish barn wood floors.. making a floor out of barn wood is not only green but it looks great! Then you don’t have to worry about scratches or wear and tear on the floor.

My dream Pinterest Sun room..

I have always dreamed of having a sunroom in my dream house. I want a fantastic yard with tons of acreage, and what better way to look at it and enjoy it in the winter months or on a horribly hot day then in a gorgeous sunroom?!

ImageImage

The windows all over in this sun room are to die for! I love thunderstorms, and I can only imagine how sitting in there watching one would be like! Plus I always want a ton of plants but they always die cause my condo has no good lighting any wheres!

Image

In this one… if you can’t do a whole glass ceiling, this is a great way to bring in more light by doing sky lights and having those windows in the peak!

Image

All the wood accents and the pop of color in this sunroom looks so cheery!

Image

All the color in this next one is so happy feeling and just makes me smile! I hate that chair though, cause wicker is so uncomfortable but if you put a big puffy couch in there I would spend forever in there smiling! haha

Image

I absolutely adore the light fixtures in this sunroom! As well as the brick wall and bead board ceiling!

Image

So that’s it! Let me know what you think! More dream Pinterest rooms will be in my next post! I’m so excited to share more! What are your dream living rooms and sun rooms??

Lots of Love,

My Pinterest Home (Kitchen/Dining Room)..

Every one says that the kitchen is the heart of the home… and believe me, I truly believe that! The kitchen I have now is so tiny and dark.. which means I never want to cook or do anything in it! Which is why when I pin kitchens on Pinterest, they are usually white and bright and big! I know there are tons of people out there who love dark wood cabinets, but I am definitely not one of those people! No matter what my bf says about wanting dark wood cabinets, when we get a house I will get those nice bright white cabinets I want! haha! *Evil laugh*

Here is my dream Pinterest kitchen…

This kitchen literally makes my heart skip a beat and go all crazy! That sink… is just… UGH!! There are no words to describe how much I adore that sink! Not only that… but look at those gorgeous big windows!! That is the biggest requirement in my future dream kitchen.. I don’t care how much work it is but there HAS to be at least four big windows above the sink! They bring in so much light.. and who really wants to look at a wall while doing your dishes, or have one tiny window to try and peer out? What would be better then watching your future kids out those windows while they play and you do the dishes?!

Okay enough about the windows… yes I am the crazy obsessed window lady! haha But now lets take our attention to that darling little towel rod underneath the sink. I seriously never even thought of doing that, but now that I have seen it… why don’t people do that more often?? I can’t imagine not having that now.

Image

Here is another fantastic kitchen I adore.. love the big windows as I’m sure you guessed! That isn’t just it though… the white mixed with the grey is gorg! That floor is just so unique and pretty! Also, of course I am in love with the apron sink too. The best part are those see through glass cabinets.. that was one condition my bf gave me. If I was to get my white kitchen, he had to have glass cabinets! Don’t tell him… but that is NOT a sacrifice for me, I have loved them for such a long time! 😉

These two kitchens, are completely cottage-y! Which if you haven’t noticed from my last post.. I am a tad bit into cottages! I adore those open shelves in the first picture, along with that pendant light above the bright sink! The second photo, those dark floors contrast the white cabinets so well! Yet again those open shelves are great!

If you haven’t already guessed, I really like green and that teal aqua color but basically just Teal in general. What I love most above these kitchens is how the bottom cabinets are green and the top cabinets are white, it gives such a great contrast and gives your eyes so much to look at! Personally at times, I think that having ALL the cabinets in a kitchen white, make it too matchy matchy and plain. So that’s why I am completely all for painting the bottom cabinets or the island a different color. Plus as you can see… glass cabinets and open shelves are yet again in these kitchens! haha

Just incase you wanted to know this as well… THIS baby is my dream stove and oven! Really… if you enjoy baking or cooking, this dream boat is for you! *swoon*

Dream Pinterest Dining Room…

So before you get all judge-y on me, just let me tell you that I can’t help myself when it comes to bright colors and patterns.

Hi my name is Bria (Hi Bria!) and I have an addiction to bright and shiny colors/patterned things. *drops head in shame*

Okay but seriously… I can’t not love this dining room! It’s so cheerful and unique! I am a sucker for huge wooden tables and this biggin’ makes me want to just snatch it up and bring in into my tiny condo! haha Not only that, ut those unique mis-matched chairs just scream “I’M SO UNIQUE AND FUN.. TAKE ME WITH YOU!!” It’s like that pier 1 commercial where every cute thing in the store talks to you!

This one is more elegant.. still another farmhouse style table but the chairs and chandelier are fancy. I am really into the whole using a bench on one side of the table idea. I think its more comfortable and welcoming.

This one is very simplistic and yet again there is a bench. With this bench though it gives it more of the picnic table vibe. Like a relaxed lunch in a park.. not overly done but still feels home-y.

I love any room with a brick wall in it, But these upholstered chairs are what has got me! It just feel so welcoming and cozy, like you could sit here for hours after dinner just chatting away with old friends. This bench really does it for me too, I love how it doesn’t have arms on it so you aren’t restricted and too close to the person next to you.  Yet it is still upholstered as well with those patterned pillows, so there is also a little bit of a elegant yet relaxed feeling. This dining room doesn’t make me feel like I have to be all proper and up tight.

Ever since I started reading Young House Love’s blog.. I have slowly but surely started to love big round tables! Their dining room table and chairs are fabulous! If you haven’t seen them yet.. go look! Here are two other round tables I love! The chairs would have to be different for me.. but they both show how wonderful a round table could look!

7e5a341bad20bbb701f59da50aeb9b06 a33179677bfa47f3b2589d267e48fbbc

This last one is very different for me cause it isn’t bright, but I am loving that dark navy color on the wall, and those lights hanging from the ceiling  are so unique and gorgeous!

Welp… those are my kitchen and dining room pins that show what I would love for my dream Pinterest house to look like! Next post I will show what I would love another part of my future dream house to look like! Please don’t be shy to comment with any ideas or rooms you also enjoy! =)

My Pinterest Home..

Ever since I joined Pinterest a couple years ago… it has gotten bigger and bigger! Now every one I know is on it! So I figured, every one pins a ton of pictures but only every so often do people actually do anything with the things that they post. Which brought me to this idea! I am going to share with you exactly what I would want my future dream house to look like with some of the pins I have posted! Of course I am not fully decided on some things… I mean who is until they actually get their dream house? So I will probably have a couple pictures for each section. I am way too excited about this… enough chit chat about it… here we go!

Front of my dream Pinterest home..

This house below by architect Wendy Posard.. is to die for!! (If you are also dying like me to see more of her homes go here: http://www.wendyposard.com/arch1-thumbs.html)

If any house was my dream house the first one below would be it.. it just makes my heart pitter patter staring at it! Not only the house but the fact that the animals are also included in the pictures makes it even more home-y to me! The next three after this one are also homes that I adore and would mix all of those three for a perfect home!

I can only imagine what sitting on this porch in the afternoon with a cup of tea would be like.. it sounds heavenly!

Image

LOVE this front door.. it’s so cute and has so much character!

Image

Dream Backyard..

Who in their life hasn’t dreamed of having their own tire swing in their back yard? What makes it even better is that gorgeous view of the lake right next to it!

Image

A secret spot in the woods all to yourself… kind of like a little hide out! Sounds relaxing!

A huge table in the backyard with unique light fixtures and a pergola with flowers growing up it… what about that doesn’t sound like a great place to sit with all your family or have a dinner party get together with all your friends?

A pool that looks like a pond… whattt??? Amazing!!

Image

This would definitely be my spot at the end of the day with a book and a cup of coffee or tea. Sitting on a dock watching the sun set has been a dream of mine since the days of Dawson’s Creek! haha

Image

And I can’t forget an amazing garden and one with this fantastic screened door entryway!
