The way you organize a room can greatly affect the mood and efficiency of a space. Though any type of shelving unit can greatly organize a space, there are some that can add an elevated feel and become a statement piece more than a simple tool for stacking books. Here are some unique shelving units to create allure in your space.
Emerald is a color starting to take the center stage in the design scene. A rich color that required a few brave designers to break in, and now more homeowners and studios worldwide are starting to take note. Its bold presence is probably why I love this color so much. It is non-apologetic, and equally romantic. Here are a few ways to integrate emerald successfully into a space…
One of many definitions of a vignette is something without a definite border. My personal definition of vignette is a moment of beauty without reason. You can create a vignette almost anywhere. And it doesn’t take a lot of money to make it beautiful. It takes those items that mean the most to you. A few items that create instant vignettes are greenery, books, candles, ceramics and art. Above we see all of the items used accordingly. And none of them are in perfect order, which makes it more perfect.
It’s become trendy to do away with window coverings, but a good window treatment brings such beauty to a space. It feels homey, layered, and put together. There are endless amounts of treatments and looks to try out depending on your needs, style, and desires. Here are some of my favorite looks and why they work.
I’ve been a big fan of the “marbled” look since I worked at a paper store years ago. We sold gorgeous sheets of painted marbled paper. I used one to cover the inside of a glass lamp and years later lined my daughter’s dresser drawers with similar sheets.
Real marble is just gorgeous, of course, but the faux stuff can be beautiful and eye-catching too. I’ve rounded up a few examples (and even a few links to simple DIYs to get the look yourself!).
My style can be characterized as fun, colorful, and whimsical, and holiday decorating is no exception. That said, I love the idea of doing an all-natural color palette using nature as the décor provider. There’s something so lovely about the beauty of the earth, no? Here are some natural décor ideas to inspire your holiday decorating.
Confession: purple is my least favorite color. I don’t know why, but the color strikes me wrong. That said, I’ve been spotting a number of gorgeous purple interiors lately that have started to change my mind. Here are some of my favorite ways to tastefully incorporate purple into your space.
The winter seasons make me want to curl up in some comfy clothes and read in a cozy cabin in the middle of the woods. Creating that perfect winter retreat can be done in just a few simple steps. Here’s how to achieve it!
Ever since moving into my first apartment on my own, I’ve dreamed of having a clawfoot tub as the centerpiece of my bathroom. They always have such a presence about them, an I-dare-you-not-to-notice-me attitude almost. Which means there’s really only one thing that could give such a thing even more charisma – COLOR!
We’ve seen wallpaper come back better than ever these last few years. From florals to geometrics, it’s all looking very chic and stylish. I recently visited a client’s home that had 1940’s floral paper in the bathroom. It was busy and the colors were a little intrusive. Fast forward years later and we see florals that are soothing and modern. Now that we have outstanding wallpaper options and we’ve used them on our walls, it’s time to think outside of the box.
Above we see a creative usage of wallpaper. It creates a landscape that looks real enough to jump into and it makes a landscape that surrounds the bed like a picture perfect scene.
