In our neighborhood, we are the one house that stands out as different (from the inside-we have HOA's and can't do much outside). We love our white cabinets and we just recently redid our floors with an antique looking handscraped laminate wood flooring...it looks fabulous with everything.
I get a lot of my inspiration from blogs that I read daily and my love for everything vintage. I also love bright colors because they just make me happy. My husband and I have two young children and we want our house to feel just as much as theirs as it is ours, so we try not to make anything too formal, but more fun for everyone. The only problem we had to overcome was ripping out the old tile and carpet from our house...there was lots of dust and just pure chaos while trying to be a functioning family of four as well.
