Reading my BHG over the weekend they featured some cool under $5 art projects. From a quick tape and paint piece on canvas to the construction paper/plastic covered frame to the paint job on the embroidery hoops! Love them all and so easy...I think the embroidery project is the best...but take three: 1 large 2 medium and paint your monogram in the three. Painting your last name in the large and your first and middle in the medium ones...add a fun punch of color with the paint and it will make any room.
Love the frame of the day it makes the tassels at NYU pop out of the frame! The foto of the day is of my girl Ali and I graduating from NYU with degrees in Special Education. We still both teach to this day and I miss her daily! I am so blessed to have more than 1 passion! Teaching and design!
So I have been slacking on my frame + foto of the day...oops. But what better way to get it going this week than feature my bestie Kerry and her wonderful fiance Matt! Tonight is one of Kerry's showers in Chevy Chase, MD and I can't wait! Cheers to the happy almost newly wed couple! The frame of the day is an Etsy shop that hand makes all their frames from scrap material...reduce, reuse, recycle friends!
When I think of twin beds I think of my childhood and jumping bed to bed and busting my front tooth out...but these images of twin beds veer from a child's room and heads into a more sophisticated space. Creating a space for two can be fun and double the impact. My fav is this last image of the valances above each bed and benches at the foot! You can sign me up to stay as a guest with those peaceful colors too!
Having lived in apartments/rentals the majority of my post college life I know how dealing with insane assylum walls feels. Here are a couple ways to brighten up any space from curtains to throw pillows to carpet squares to fun side chairs you can make any space more lively!
Check out Studio Design Lab's awesome pillows! Love them and they are so different...material and concept! I think I'd go with Pina Colada, Silver Beach, and Lava Rock...keeping it neutral for the long run! But if you have child's room, guest room, or den add in some fun colors to go with your decor!
A couple of fabric swatches for my arm chair project! What do you think? Leave your comments on your fav chair and fabric combo! I love the Craiglist Arm Chair but which fabric mmmhmmm? All of them please!
