New House Inspiration

I love the blue beadboard interior of these bookshelves.  
I'm going to have to find a spot for this beautiful bulletin board from Lonny.
I love the neutral coziness of this dining room.

Neutral with a touch of blue and gold from Southern Accents.
My new kitchen is not white. It seems that I have only saved pictures of white kitchens. I've search high and low for kitchens I like with stained cabinetry. I'm sure there are some, there has to be. I just couldn't come up with one right now. I love the mix of woods and white in this kitchen. I like how the table comes off of the island with the beautiful wing backs around it. I love the checked valances and the blue walls. I can at least paint and make curtains. If you have any photos of beautiful stained cabinet kitchens please forward them along, would you? Thanks, ever so much. 
I love the combination of pink with this brown.  My new house is painted brown.  I really like it, but I don't really decorate with pink so I may not go this direction.  It is so much fun, though. This photo is from Veranda, or Southern Accents, I believe.
I love this color palette.  One bedroom is this gray and we're planning on using gold and creme's with it. 
I'm not giving up my craft room. I may have to share it with my husband's office, but it's a big room.  I wish there was this much sun pouring into it, but I'll lighten it up and it will be perfect! There's a huge closet in that room. I'm going to research Elfa products to organize with. As you can see there is a lot of dreaming going on over here. There is more to come, including landscaping ideas! All I can say is cha ching! We're going to have to do things slowly.
