favorites {and dreams for my house}

I have a confession. I am not creative when it comes to home decor. It seems crazy, the fact that I'm creative in so many other ways but when it comes to decorating, I don't have the slightest idea how to do it or what my style is. I know what I want my style TO BE, but bringing it to fruition is daunting, to say the least.

This is what our living room downstairs looks like. It has rust colored walls and dark tan walls in the kitchen. To say it's dark is an understatement.

see how dark?? bleh!!

There are, however, a few things that I love in our downstairs, like the magnets on our fridge celebrating the places we've been either as a couple or as a family.

And my bright and cheery Magnets from Aisle to Aloha. It took some quick fingers to get these babies...she's selling them like crazy. They make me happy when I look at them! {and yes, I still have E's Christmas elf on the fridge, he's so cute}

And my favorite thing of all downstairs is the Cornwell family rules. Whenever someone new comes to our house they always ask about it (make your own here). People especially love the rule "flush". You may laugh, but "flush the toilet" has become a mantra in our house with a three year old boy!

Most of my favorite things are in my kitchen and none in my living area so I'm ready for a refresh and remodel! I'm leaning toward light gray walls in the entryway, living room and kitchen to lighten it up in here. I'll add pops of color and the decor will be vintage/antique. I can't wait! Here are some of my inspirations from Pinterest that I hope to incorporate into the design.

Do you have any decorating tips for me??
