Fave Friday Five - Home Interior Websites

Truly I need to be a much wealthier person to afford decorating the inside of my house upon reviewing this list. It also probably explains why my dining room contains two dog kennels and boxes full of my office supplies because my tastes far exceed my income and I would rather save for what I want them spend my money on something I don't want. Anywho, I digress. In no particular order here are 5 of my favorite websites to shop from drool over.

I fell in love with Restoration Hardware when I was in college. At that time they sold my dream headboard. Flash forward to 2009 and they no longer carry that headboard but they do a have a presence in my current house. I love the seersucker shower curtain in my guest bath and am thankful they offered one when it was exactly what I was looking for.

Pottery Barn never lets me down when it comes to items I would love for my bedroom, dining room, or living room. Their style always matches mine and thanks to the outlet in Georgia I scored the roman shades I wanted: 2 for less than the prices of 1. I also am a big fan of their towels because they hold their shape and have a great texture.

Once I've spent a small fortune fake buying all the furniture from the above two companies, Ballard would be my go to for decorating. Their art work and space organizers are always the best. I did splurge on some fabric before Christmas which I hope to have made into a skirt for an endtable in my living room and some additional throw pillows. I like that you can get fabric samples from them and that they offer a wide range of furniture which can be upholstered.

I am a gadget girl. Another reason I have no furniture: I'd rather spend my money on gadgets. So, if I had the money my house would definitely have some of the nice gadges from this catalog. I do have a nice hammock (actually two..oops) from this company. After much research their hammock package could not be beat. However, I need to return that second hammock so I can get my hammock cover. Oh, and their customer service was exceptional. (Oh, and I know a hammock is not interior decorations, but it currently resides on my living room floor because I don't want to leave it outside to get wet.)

Frontgate has great furniture and home interior gadgets. I have bought a few pieces from their outlet. including a great cookie jar that looked like Frozen Hot Chocolate from Serendipity 3. It came with the mix to make the frozen hot chocolate and was cheaper than me buying the hot chocolate mix from the Serendipity 3 website. I was able to give the cookie jar as the tackiest gift at a white elephant exchange at Christmas. Awesome. I also have a great mini-blender from there that is similar to the Magic Bullet but much better.

So there you go. 5 websites I could easily spend my whole paycheck at monthly for a year and still be drooling over more items. Now if only you could win the lottery without playing it I might be set. I guess I will just continue to drool and save.
