The Bachman's Idea House

Today we discovered the Bachman's Idea House in Minneapolis Minnesota. Each season it is transformed by Ki Nassauer with wonderful whimsical ideas. Just take a look...
Love the look of these curtains made with aprons. Look above at the silverware chandy!
Fabulous pictures courtesy of Itsy Bits and Pieces.
She features posts on the Idea House each time it changes. Make sure you check her out.
Below is a closer look at the whimsical chandelier.

How cute is this? A basement window well used inside as a toy box...genius!

Funky bulletin board.

Fun catch-all made out of a vintage gate.

The shutter headboard is cute, but checkout the bedside lamps...too cool.
The branch below is a great way to incorporate a natural element to a brightly colored pallet.

Batter Up!!! This is a home run headboard idea!
Awesome storage for a boy's room.

Keep your eye on the Bachman's Idea House....they offer tons of inspiration and it changes with each season!
