As a designer, I've observed a lot of habits in the decorating and design world. Habits that I believe need to be broken. Many of these may have started with good intentions -- but we all know where that path leads!
Take that desk of yours and decorate the sh*t out of it until it magically transforms into that corner office. To create the ultimate workspace, start by making it homey and personal with a jolt of energy. Think ambient lighting, warm pops of color and personal touches like artwork.
I am going to share some tried and true decorating advice with you-invest in high ticket classic furnishings and have fun with colorful home accessories.
Raid your craft closet and the store for fun, seasonal add-ons that will make your door the envy of the neighborhood. If you can't find every item that this blogger uses in her wreath, customize it based on your taste, and your supplies.
A seasonal home makeover doesn't require a total interior overhaul. Just a few decor updates can make a big impact when transitioning your home between seasons.
Lose the kitschy marshmallow ghosts and goblins, the punchbowls filled with creepy garnishes like floating eyeballs. The end of October is a beautiful time of year, when the air is crisp and the foliage is at its spectacular peak. I can't think of a better time to gather with friends around a roaring fire.
White is crisp, clean, and extremely powerful. Often underestimated. That is, until it has its chance to shine.
The main mistake that I see people make is to plan their kitchen around the edges and forgetting to use "the middle." Putting everything around the walls is usually not the most efficient use of space.
Working, as we do, with a client inventory that spans suburban bungalows, condominiums, back splits and city centre semis, we've problem solved every decorative issue that bad taste can muster. Here's a quick roundup of pointers that should help make better of any small space, cottage inclined or not.
Your interior environment has a huge impact on your overall well-being, and let's be honest, your sex life. So, don't let that barren décor and those bland walls of yours be the deterrent. Get art, and get laid.
As the cooler season sweeps through your home, a neat entryway is usually the first room to go. Coats, gloves, scarves, hats - sometimes you're surprised you can make in through the front door with all that cold-weather couture blocking hallway traffic.
Deciding on the best shade for your bathroom? From bold stripes to invigorating yellow, get inspired by these hues.
From charcoal to heather, meet the new and most powerful neutral.
We've seen many hotels that offer a small shelf of loaner books, but these hotels went above and beyond in creating a literary oasis for their guests.
When you think pink, do you immediately have flashbacks of your 10-year-old self? So unfair. Give this hue a fighting chance.
Take two of your favorite things, upcycling and decorating, and put them together, for a perfectly eco-friendly Halloween!
