Design Inspiration

Confession: I record design shows where they makeover a room. I watch the beginning and the end. Nothing in between.

I came across the site StyleatHome.com and basically it takes room makoevers to the next level (and you don't even have to watch anything). It shows two rooms/parties/home decor that look almost exactly the same, only one is high end and one is "low," relatively speaking.

The room on the left is $4,902 and the one on the right is $2,284! For those of you who need a calculator (like me) that is $2,618 difference and I feel like I am doing one of those People Magazine games where you are trying to see what changed in the picture.

Can you tell which room is the high end room and which is the low end one?
Not sure if this is a hint or not, but I guessed wrong. Well, the one on top is the high end room at $4,247. The low end room was only $1,512.
I originally found this site through Spearmint Baby. She has a really great site and for those of you planning a nursery, you will be in heaven!
In other news, remind me to never take a nap at 6 p.m. It is apparently the equivalent of drinking a pot of coffee....I guess I will have to watch the middle of my recorded makeover shows to lull me to sleep.

I really really want to go to spearmint baby and look at all the cute nurseries, but I am holding myself back from this. We just (Sunday) finished ours, and I have this HORRIFIC habit of finalizing something for myself/my life and then looking at everyone else's and becoming intensely jealous and not-as-happy with what I was so OVERJOYED by before. Thus the reason I, to this day, dislike my wedding dress. Wierd, I know. But I will look at the Design blog. I saving a buck! Thanks. :)

Oh btw, I started reading Queen of Babble on vacation and I'm hooked. I need to stop by the library for the 3rd book.
