Daily Covet: It’s time to put MAC to work!

HGTV Home Design for MAC, apple.com $49.95

Last Christmas, my darling husband surprised me with a Macbook.  I wanted one specifically to pacify that creative side in me.  To date, I have yet to use it for anything remotely resembling create and design!  As I was looking around for some software that would allow me to dig my heels in, I came across this HGTV Home Design for Mac software.

I have previously done some virtual room design and redecorate on sites like Lowes.com or EthanAllen.com but neither was very intuitive and I usually ended up giving up before I had accomplished what I really wanted to.

So today, I am coveting this seemingly awesome software so that I can put MAC to work!

Daily Covet

If I didn’t already have the most fabulous little boys’ room around, I would consider trying to copy this…. but I thought I would share (click here for room view #2 as I couldn’t copy the picture directly from website!)

While virtually visiting one of my favorite websites, called OneKingsLane.com, I found that they had some ideas for sprucing up children’s rooms.  I ran across this adorable room that wouldn’t normally be my “style” but I just thought it was such a nice way to be ranch-y and rustic while still being traditional and tailored.

Notice the pale, blue walls… my all time favorite… such a great way to create calm in a room.  Also the ironic use of bucking bronco fabric in the curtains… not such a calming effect?

The headboards are custom, I’m sure with animal hide-like print fabric and the bedding is clean and unfussy.  I love that there are some small punches of red in there to keep the predominantly white and pastel colors from becoming too bland.

If someone ends up recreating this room, please notify me immediately with picture proof of the adorable results!
