Since we've been renters for the last uh... ok. We've always been renters. Basically, I haven't ever really made the effort to decorate. And I have to admit, my mom was not a decorator. Sorry, mom. But she didn't know anything about tablescapes and color combinations and well, basically anything. So, I don't exactly have a strong background.
I'm a n00b! I've spent a bunch of time researching and getting inspiration.

He leans toward contemporary/modern (BORING and COLD), and I'm more a Pottery Barn/Crate & Barrel type girl (warm and inviting). I will give you one guess on who will win this battle. (Hint! The person who spends more time at the house.)

Anyone have any ideas? Or websites they love for decorating inspiration? Or favorite decor blogs? Bring it on!
