Another home I'm obsessed with!

As you know from this post, I am slowly re-vamping my home. In this process, I have scoured the intranets for inspiration and have come across some seriously amazingly talented people and just have to share them here with you. Today's amazingly talented home belongs to Kristen of K.F.D Designs. Her home is small but jam packed with big style. Enjoy!

I LOVE the painting she did above her newly re-upholstered sofa. The wall color is so intense and I love the way the white sofa pops in the room.

Her kitchen was pretty before but painting the
cabinets white makes the room feel much bigger.

I DIE (in the words of Rachel Zoe) for this orange stencil above her bed.
Can't get enough of it!

Painted Highchair - Aqua

My Mom had an old wooden highchair that she used for all of the grandkiddos. She is keeping Malone while I work so she needed a highchair that was a little more practical. So the wooden highchair was put in the attic. When it was time for Malone's one year pics, I thought it would be adorable to spray paint the highchair an aqua blue. So I did it! Here are some pics of the finished product...

After I spray painted the primer on

The finished product!

What I Wore Wednesday #20

I can't believe I made it to 20 WIWW's. Crazy! This has been so much fun and I love hearing all of your sweet comments. How motivating. It really makes me stop and think about what I put on everyday. Well, let's be honest. Not every day. I'm a firm believer in "why waste your good clothes and your fancy makeup if I am just going to Kroger??" Trust me, that kills my conservative Momma. After all, I am southern. Aren't I suppose to get all fancy everyday? At least put some makeup on and make yourself presentable, she says. But, I digress.

I have been trying to lose the last 15 pounds of baby weight and by trying I mean not exercising and eating whatever I want. Oh wait, that is pretty much the opposite of trying right? So, I told myself I wouldn't buy any new summer clothes until April and here we are the middle of April and I still have the weight to lose. So I had to break down and buy a few pieces. Hence the reason WIWW has been a little so so lately. I just am bored and truly have a hissy fit each morning before I try on clothes. So, hopefully in the coming weeks WIWW will be kicked up a notch. Stay tuned.....

Dress: Target, Belt: Target, Shoes: hmmm???

Just for "proof" here is me on a non working, non church
day on my way to get my hair done with not a stitch of make up on.

jacket: Old Navy, Shirt: Target, Skirt: Forever21, Shoes: can't remember

Love this home!

You guys have to see this!
I am in love with Nuestra Vida Dolce's home. Her living room is to die for!
Her home tour is on Apartment Therapy and you can check it out here.
For now, here are some lovely images from this super awesome casa!

Do you spy those ceiling medallions?
You may see those puppies behind my tv in the very near future. Genius.

That desk is from World Market and those curtains...shut up,
they are such the statement piece in the room.

Her kitchen is beautiful. Can you tell she painted her island a slightly pink shade?
So gutsy and it totally works.

I seriously have a crush on Nuestra Vida Dolce's home. So go check her out!

My Living far!

Finally. The living room is ready to be seen!
Houston, we have curtains!!!

I would say the room is about 60% done. But, for now I am very happy with it. The wallet needs a break plus I have a lot of ideas for wall decor and the fireplace and figure I could use some time to be sure what I want to do.

The pics are a little blown out but my living room doesn't get much light due to a super long, dark hallway that leads into it so I had to do some major iphoto(shop) to make the photos presentable.

The view from the super long dark hallway and pretty
much the first thing you see when you enter. I already had the rug so it HAD to stay. I loved it and knew it would look great with the more modern color scheme.

The view from the hallway to our Master Bedroom.

We put Malone's kitchen in a funny little corner and hung the starbust mirror that was purchased at Hobby Lobby. I am thinking I want to do a wall of starburst mirrors here.

The black/white pillows are from Ikea and only $12!!! Yellow rose pillow from Target and velvet teal pillow from Pier1. Orange throw from Ikea.

Tufted chairs from World Market at only $179 a piece! I love these chairs! They are the perfect scale and color for what I was looking for. Pillows are also from World Market. Blue lamp is from Target. Bamboo shades are from Lowe's and white curtains from Ikea.

The table still needs LOTS of dressing. Maybe some coral, picture frames and more magazines?

The artwork above the fireplace is from my very talented Dad. The middle pic was being used in the living room, the blue pic was in our bedroom and the pears were in the kitchen. I love the colors together and these photos just don't do it justice!

Eventually, I would like to add some more molding to the fireplace and beaf up the hearth a little.

Welcome to the land of the bare! This tv wall has been the thorn in my side. I have lots of ideas but more on that later.

Hope you enjoyed the tour! I am linking up with:
