Here are a few...

Dining room/entry to house/sitting room (separate lounge) - dining table and kitchen are behind where I've taken the picture



These were all I had available at the time taking the pictures. Lounge is a frequent messy place, but uncluttered. Bedroom comes and goes lol.

nathansmum- I love those warm colors on your walls! very inviting.

Well how's this for uncluttered? http://www.flickr.com/photos/azaleaw/1469485869/ I'm repainting so it's pretty empty

And this is my dinning. Which is close to that right now except that I have a stack of fabric on one chair. I need to put those away since I'm done with those projects. http://www.flickr.com/photos/azaleaw...7600080111611/

If I had a clean, clear space, I certainly would take pictures of it .

Here's our living room looking into the dining room.

It's "homey" but uncluttered

Don't ask me why the light is on...I'm sure some kid did that. : Sigh, at least it's a cfb.

I just happened to have it in my photobucket account, so I'm sharing...no time to upload anything else we're all sick and I need to get offline .

This is my house! I try to keep it fairly clean and decluttered, but I like a really homey decorated look, too.

The rooms in my house are very small so it makes it hard to look really clutter free. I feel like I am constantly going through stuff and getting rid of unnecessaries.

The pics from my basement are old (as you can tell by the Christmas tree!!!), but it looks about the same!

I may paint my kitchen cabinet red because of you.

That's great! It really brightened up my kitchen! People thought I was crazy when I told them I wanted to paint them red, but now they all love it

All those pics are awesome and very inspiring. If I ever found a decluttered spot in my house I'd take pics but uh... I don't see that happening any time soon. I'm trying to clean it all out now. Maybe in a few weeks.

Thanks! I love my orange wall as well - it's been like that for 4yrs and I still love it. If my lounge gets tidies today I'll take a pic of it, it has a deep red wall lol. My bathroom is a gorgeous (well I think lol) restful earthy green.

Loving looking at the other pics, keep 'em coming!

It's a Delight-Filled Life.

Nathansmum: Your wonderful pictures are a real inspiration to me. I feel at peace just looking at your living area. You have done a wonderful job. Any other pictures you have will be great to look at. I think I am going back to look at the living room picture again.

It's a Tripp Trapp by Stokke. It costs an arm and a leg but so worth it! DS scored last Christmas and got tons of cash so I immediately bought it with that. DS can climb onto it all on his own.

Yay! They discontinued the blueberry color right around the time I got it. I wonder if it's because dents show up on it more than on lighter colors. DS went through a phase where he insisted on sliding the chair right up to the table and he left some marks. Most places like www.babybungalow.com offer free shipping on it. I want to see pics when you get yours! It should last forever.

LOVE it! Thanks so much for sharing. I love the basement. Thanks for the visual inspiration (we're mentally working on a basement remodel).

Where did the planets come from? My dd#1 is WAY in to planets right now. I'd love to do something similar.
