A Cottage Home: White and Blue Make An Impact (BHG)

White has always been a favorite of mine in decorating but when paired with blue, it really pops (told you I was coming around to liking blue.)  A recent post by BHG shows unique ideas in this decor and thinking outside the box.  Five stars for this BHG post and I’m putting this living room and kitchen in my “inspiration” box!

This kitchen makes me want to start baking something.  What a neat idea for an old window!

Raise the Ceiling: A Romantic Bedroom

Another space enlarging touch for a small bedroom is to be creative with fabric by drawing the eye up to the ceiling.  Love this idea from Better Homes and Gardens.  This instant canopy made with swing arm curtain rods and fabric really makes the whole room pop!!

The romantic and elegant chandelier also draws your attention to the ceiling.  Loving the one pictured with its cottage feel.  Here’s one I found at lampsplus.com which may be a good alternative.

or this swag one that plugs into the wall if you have no electrical skills or would like to drape over a side table..

Whether you use sheer fabric for a more romantic, wispy look or you coordinate fabric with existing furniture or drapes in the room,  this space enlarging idea is a winner in my book.  Here’s another space saving idea for a bedroom headboard we posted today.  Have fun!
