A Decor Overhaul is a brewin'!

I'm working on getting the house back in order after all the Christmas decorations came down.  I started bringing all my everyday accessories back in and they look very tired and VERY SAD to me.  Time for a change!  I'm really loving WHITE, COASTAL and SIMPLE right now.

How about you?  Are you wanting to do an overhaul on your decor?

Here are some pictures that are inspiring me and I'll be posting later with my results!

This living room is from the Coastal Living 2009 Seawatch Idea House. I love the paint color, the huge white ottoman, the mix of textures and OH, that fireplace!

Love this snappy little chair! Of course, it wouldn't stay white for long in my house, but one can dream...

I REALLY want to find a big round table to seat 8 for my dining room, kind of like this...

I want to take down the white wood blinds and hang these in my family room/breakfast room...

Cool lighting

I love these fun accessories!

 Shell art.  I'm SO thinking I could make this!  Isn't it cool?

I have 2 vases exactly this shape that are currently painted Paprika.  Spray paint party, anyone?

I found the COOLEST website, if you like COASTAL decor.  Check out Belongings




Don't forget Linky Party tomorrow!

LOVE those blinds in the kitchen shot. I am in love with those color schemes...just don't know how doable they'd be in my house--messy husband, kids, dog. :( Sigh...a girl CAN dream. ;)

Love all of your ideas here. The chair IS adorable. Just have one slipcovered, then you can wash and Oxy Clean it whenever it gets dirty. I know the feeling. 5 boys here. Well, only one left at home, but 3 dogs took their places. LOL

You're so organized, my rooms just "happen"

I love all choices but that grey coral is amazing.

Thanks for taking a gander everyone! My rooms seem to come together easier, when I have some visual guidance! I'm going tomorrow to price the woven shades and hopefully buy them! Anny, I have a piece of red coral and I think I'm going to spray it GRAY. I'll let you know how it turns out!
