Garden Inspiration

I thought I would show some inspiration pictures of things outside that I want to incorporate in the beautification of the house.

I would love to add a small wooden porch on the side of Scot's garage/shed.

I love this entry. I want our side porch (which will be used a lot!) to look this gorgeous!

I love this white fence. This is definitely at the top of my wish list for the future!

and this summery (and romantic!)

Isn't this outside sink cool???  Great for the kids to be able to use without having to come inside to clean up
and also a great potting sink!

Inspiration for E's Room

E has known from the beginning that she wants to use the colors brown and lime green in her room. We have been searching for some inspiration to make this a more sophisticated room for my pre-teen!

Check out the lime green bed! It is definitely makes a statement.

Green Headboard with brown and white bedding.

She wants lime green walls. I found this on  the PB Teen website it is called Chic Lime by Benjamin Moore

She also likes the idea of a Brown accent wall.

I am not sure yet which way  we will go regarding the paint. I want to wait and see how much light she will be getting through her window.

How cute is this pillow.

We found a light like this one for $5.00. We just need some crystals for it!

She has always wanted a window seat in her room.  This is something that we will plan for and add to her room later.

I like the idea of open shelves with some closed storage on the bottom.

So what do you think? Does it have the making of a sophisticated pre-teen's room?
