Angie's House-Favorite Spaces Winner in STL Homes and Lifestyles Magazine

I entered my mom in a decrorating contest for boutique owners through St. Louis Homes and Lifestyles magazine.  Our customers are always asking if her house looks like the store, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to finally give them a peek inside.  We entered my old bedroom, now the guest bedroom, and she won!! Here's the article:
Here are some photos I took and some by the photographer the magazine sent(Anne Mathis):
I have the cutest mom.  She even wears a lot of white lol.

 Just about everything in the house is from The White Rabbit.  Imagine that!  She sneeks things home when I'm not looking. 
I love the idea of a message to guests on a chalkboard!

Below is us at the awards party.  It was so much fun.  I'm glad we remembered to snap a picture.

Since you guys are always asking about her house, I thought I'd share a few more pictures of it. I'll take more soon, but here's what I have so far. Here's my brother's old room.  It's also a guest bedroom now. 
Old suitcases are one of our favorite things to decorate with.  You can stack them, paint them different colors, hang them as shelves...etc.

She didn't specifically have a headboard for this room yet so she just hung a chalkboard behind the bed.  Voila!  Cheap headboard.

And last but not least, the master bedroom.  Yep, that is also my Dad's bedroom.  My dad lives in a house with my mom, 2 fluffy shih tzus, and a whole lot of pink and white.

See the trunk at the end of the bed?  Daisy and Bailey(shih tzus) like to sleep on it at night when they get hot in the bed.  It is too cute when they're both stretched out on it!

She needs some photos or notes on her memo board!  It has the pins but it's naked!  The word "Paris" is stenciled on there.  I love it.

Notice in the picture below that my mom must have thought the plant wasn't tall enough to balance the height of the statue so she stacked some books under it.  Easy fix right?  Try it!
I have a strange obsession with the vintage pink lamp below.  It has a glass base with pink flowers.  The pictures in the frames are me and my little brother when we were kids.

This antique wardrobe has been in my parents' room since I can remember.  I remember trying to get inside of it when I was little.  She likes to keep her change of season's clothes in here.  When I was little, it was stained a dark wood color.

My favorite part about this room is the vaulted ceiling.  You can see it below.

People ask us a lot of questions about balance.  They want to know if everything has to be matchy and the same shape.  You can see in the picture below that she put a mirror in the center and then balanced out the two sides with similarly sized items.  They don't have to be the exact same shape or color as long as they balance each other out.

Look for the article about my mom and her guest bedroom in the October 2012 issue of St. Louis Homes and Lifestyles Magazine.  I'm so proud.  I will take more pictures of her house too.  Thanks for reading :) -Lindsay
