Thanks for all of your responses to my post the other day! My brain is churning with ideas now, and it's gotten me even more excited about working on the house--which I didn't think was possible. Too bad it's not 30 degrees warmer so I can get some painting done and re-stain my $10 table. Anyway, since I'm in that frame of mind, this round of Pinterest Picks is rather house-heavy. But I don't think you'll mind.
This bedroom is absolutely gorgeous. I keep getting drawn to light, bright spaces, which doesn't surprise me since I have ants in my pants to get our kitchen cabinets painted. The stripes and flowers work so well together, and that lamp is eerily similar to the ones we have on our nightstands. (It's fate! Time to re-do the bedroom!)

Another white room! I want just a smidge more contrast in here, but I love how they took the subway tile all the way to the ceiling. And that rug. And the pendant. And the sink.
What fun stuff did you find online this week? Anybody else especially drawn to light rooms right now? Maybe it's because of the dreary winter light. Do you have any fun plans this weekend?
