any advice?

Since I've been a bit wordy this week (ha! as if that's ever not the case...) I thought I'd turn the tables for today and ask all of you for a bit of advice: What are your favorite sources for design inspiration? Any go-to sites? Blogs? Books? Radley and I are in love with our new space, and right now it's just a blank canvas waiting for us to make it our own--so any and all help would be appreciated!

As for me, I'm all about lots of white, lots of light, rustic accents, and pops of color. And Radley? Well, as he puts it: "I want things that are functional. And things that look good." (... Right.)

Hope you've all had a nice week!
Happy Friday :)

I'm a fan of bringing the outside indoors...if you have a lot of sunlight, plants are a great form of 'decoration' (even fake ones!). Painting an accent wall a bright/cheery color brings in a focal point, but it doesn't make the room too crazy (plus it's way easier to paint 1 wall than 4!). Have fun decorating :)
