Inspiration Wednesday

Happy Wednesday!  Half way through the week, Yippee!

My inspiration image today comes from me doing research on redo'ing stairs.  Currently we have carpeted stairs - I hate it.  It is ugly cheap carpet that the builder put in and with 2 dogs and 2 kids they are dirty, stained and GROSS.

I want to redo them.  Tear the carpet up, and lay hardwood on the stairs.  I love the look of this, dark step (treads) and white backs (riser), white banister and dark railings.  Super classy looking, and we could always add a runner later if we felt it was super slippery.

I know I missed Friday Favourites this week.  It's been one of those weeks and I still haven't caught up to my queue of posts, so in the meantime I'll add a few favourites here too!

1. Similar style sold at Overstock.com and for a very reasonable price.  Check it out here

2.  A desk lamp like this one is incredible on way more then just a desk, a side table, next to your sofa or your bed are great options for this beauty.  And it's cheap!  Check it out at Ikea: you can find the Ranarp lamp, here

3. A fav online shop of mine is Joss & Main, although I have yet to order anything specifically from them I have MANY plans.  I love the products they offer and for a daily event website they have such great variety and offer some really great prices.  This beautiful chandelier is an offering they have right now.  I really love this chandelier and was thinking it might look amazing in our master bedroom.  I'm sure everyone is aware of the pricing of lighting...what makes it so expensive anyway?  But I find Joss & Main very reasonable in their discount pricing and they quite often have some sort of lighting event happening.  Please note that this event ends in two days and will no longer be available by Dec 14, 2013. 

4.  The Penny Paper Co. have such great paper products, personalized stationary, kids art collections and also a great assortment of personalized household stamp.  I LOVE this idea and think it would make an amazing gift for someone as well.

5.  Another light from Joss & Main.  You can find this chandelier here in there "All that Glitters" event that started today.  Please note that this event ends in two days and will no longer be available by Dec 14, 2013.

6.  I think I've mentioned on here already that we're going to start working on the living room eventually but first I need to decide what I'd like to put on the main wall.  I really want built ins and have seen a lot of Ikea hacks that include the BESTÅ system.  I love the functionality of this system, it's pretty and SO customizable.  Check it out online at Ikea
