    I have been obsessed with this thread because I absolutely love decorating & houses. Here is my favorite room its our living room and then the dining room! My bedroom would be up here if it were clean, Ill have to post those later! Everyone has great homes with fabulously decorated rooms,,,,good job ladies! P.s. I totally want new couches!!!!! So hopefully those will be gone soon!


    Here is the living room:

        I'm trying to convince Frank to move back up to the midwest because of this. The property taxes are half what they are here in Dallas, plus insurance rates as a whole are about 1/3 what they are here. Literally, my brother lives in a small town outside a 100,000 resident city--- he has a 3 story home (about 4,000 square foot) with 4-5 bedrooms, 4 baths, 2 living rooms, formal dining room, huge kitchen, multi-level outdoor deck with a big backyard (complete with separate cobblestone patio with fire pit), and 2 car garage--- all for $85,000. And they live 4 hours away from Chicago, St. Louis, Minneapolis, Kansas City... so when craving really big city things like top-class art museums and pro sports teams, it's just a weekend drive/trip.

          Drea your condo is the cutest!!!

          Maria...$85,000 Even at $285,000 that would be a steal. Darn my geography and my parents for birthing me in California! What some people pay for mortgages on a nice home we pay in rent out here. We do have the great weather and scenery, but shoot...sometimes I think I'd be willing to move somewhere less desirable to have a home.

          And Amy, I feel your pain! We looked at a place a few months back near Pico & Barrington and they wanted $1350 for a small, old, and ugly 1 bedroom with no balcony or patio. Westside Rentals is your best shot if you're willing to pay for listings....good luck!

            I should pull out the photos of the house I owned when I lived up there. It was built after the turn of the century... 1300 square feet, 2 stories with full walk-up attic and basement... restored hardwood floors, stained glass windows, restored wood beams in the living room, 3 bedrooms, 1 bath at the time, wine cellar in the basement.... It was on the historic register for the city because it was once the founding father of the city's property... I bought it in 1998 for $55,000 after it had been restored fully. I miss that house. It was really cute.

            The housing market in your area is just unreal to me.... Last summer I got an "open door" job offer from a company in Orange County, but I just couldn't bring myself to take it simply because the housing market is so inflated out there and I really want to get back into home ownership again.

                    I have been waiting to post in this thread, I finally finished Ainsleigh's room and I have to say I am pretty sure it's my favorite room in the house at this point.
