The best way to show you what a custom mood board is like, is to give one to you…all of you. I plan to periodically share a “Mood Board For All”, which will be an open source list mood board. After the graphic I will include all the source links. The only difference between this [...]
Master bedrooms are one of the most personal spaces in our homes. Unfortunately, they are also often the last places we decorate. There are so many great DIY projects that can make your master bedroom swanky without a lot of time or money! To help my client finish off her Coral & [...]
Once I create a mood board for a room in my home, I have a pretty hard and fast rule about not making any changes. By that I mean I won’t deviate from the mood board style and colors. That is my key to actually getting a room finished. At some point you have to [...]
Sadly, many homeowners focus on the main living areas of their home and neglect their own bedrooms. It can be hard to justify decorating a private space few others will see. However, the bedroom is your personal haven. I believe the bedroom is one of the most important spaces in a home to decorate. It [...]
We just got a new and bigger TV for the bedroom. I am going on record to say I love it! I know, i know…they say it can kill the romance, you shouldn’t watch TV right before bed, blah, blah, blah. Well, I have always enjoyed winding down with a TV show before bed.
Okay I could not resist the alliteration in the title, but I really am here today to show you how to make pretty piped pillows. If you have been successful with the easy two-seam envelope pillows, then you should have no problem pulling these off. They only require a few [...]
I had so much fun mixing fabrics for our master bedroom. I really wanted a casual, yet sophisticated look with a worldly feel. I also wanted to play with layering lots of patterns. Color and pattern are the two easiest ways to add lots of personality to a room. I think you will agree, this [...]
Aubergine is quickly becoming one of my favorite colors. I already incorporated the plum color into the master bedroom fabric plan in the suzani fabric and the organic sheet set. I wanted to sprinkle the color throughout the room in accessories, but the perfect aubergine shade is pretty hard to [...]
I finally got around to making curtain panels for the master bedroom. We have a huge bank of three windows in the room. Each window is about 36″ wide, so the entire span is over 9 feet. When we moved in we added white wood blinds for privacy. I never intended to have functional curtain [...]
The placemats at West Elm are always a work of art, so I framed one as such.
This grey Moroccan print placemat caught my eye on a recent shopping trip. It was one of those “I love it, but have no idea what I am going to do with it” things. I loved the print [...]
Have you seen the lamp selection at Lowe’s lately? I was pleasantly surprised. They have a lamp bar…choose your base, then choose from a selection of shades.
I found this shapely chrome lamp base and sleek black lampshade for under $40. I actually liked the same lamp base in oil rubbed bronze with a white [...]
It may be an overdone trend, but you simply can’t deny that sometimes you just have to put a bird on it. Well, a few years back I put a few birds on the lamp shades in our master bedroom and I still love them today. Just to be clear, they are our only bird [...]
For the last year I have been collecting textiles for the master bedroom with big plans to update the space. It started simply enough with the bedding in bold black and white with purple sheets. I wanted to sprinkle in some more patterns while keeping the [...]
As I wrap up the last few projects in the nursery, I am gearing up to do some updates in our master bedroom. We used to pride ourselves on always having a well-designed bedroom. For many people it is the last room they decorate, because they focus on the more public living spaces in the [...]
I am guest posting today over at Satori Design for Living as part of the “Designer Challenge: Which Settee?”. Shauna gave me and Shannon from AKA Design three settee’s to choose from and we each got to explain what we would do with the one we chose. When Shauna [...]
