Spring is all about clean spaces, natural light, and greenery. There’s something so refreshing about a bright airy bedroom that just wants to make us hit snooze. Here are some beautiful examples of airy bedrooms perfect for springtime snoozing:

It’s Monday, and we’ve all been day dreaming about those legendary 5 more minutes in bed. So in the spirit of Monday sleepiness, join us in coveting in these beautiful beds and their unique and stylish headboards:

This project isn’t for the faint of heart (or inexperienced crafter), but the result is stunning!

This minimalist approach is probably a lot easier to achieve, and since it’s made of Washi tape, it’s a great idea for anyone who rents or has limited space.

Most pet owners consider their animals to be a part of their families. But do their pets get taken into consideration when designing homes? Not all the time, but if you’re an animal lover you may want to consider sprucing up your space so your pooch feels stylish and included. Here are some fun dog-friendly design ideas from around the web:

Move over, Harry Potter, the extra space under the stairs is now home to a four-legged friend name Max. This is a great idea to give your dog a cozy retreat without taking up more floor space!

No space under the stairs? No problem! You can turn your pup’s crate into a stylish little hang out with a cool crate cover like this nautical themed canopy!

Let your dog dine like royalty —  PLUS, keep those doggy dishes out from underfoot with this fun island idea.

You can also turn an old wine crate into a food and water dish holder, which is also nice for large breeds so they don’t have to bend down to get their grub. DIY by stenciling your dishes and cutting holes in the crate yourself, or if you’re short on time, purchase one here. (DIY version pictured.)

Last but not least — how fun are these dog windows? We’re not sure how safe letting your dog stick their head out of the fence is — for them or for passersby — but it’s a neat concept that could be modified for safety with a little window pane or some wire!

Many people consider the kitchen the most important room in the home. It’s a place for nourishment and creativity, where families gather and meals are made. And while having a sleek wooden floor or tiles is a practical choice, a cheerful little rug can go a long way in sprucing up your kitchen’s look, and keeping your feet warm when you’re making coffee in the morning! Here are some of our favorite kitchens with rugs from around the web:

The entrance into your home is the first greeting a guest receives at the door, the first peek impression of your space. But a hallway can be a difficult space to perfect — how do you make narrow dimensions feel warm and welcoming, imbued with the personality of you and your family? The perfect rug can go a long way in setting up your space and creating a welcoming entrance. Here are some examples we’ve found around the web:

Hallway Heaven via Abbey Carpet of SF
This foyer is bright and warm, setting the stage for a neat and well thought out home by matching the rug to the front door and the vase on the side table.
