Transforming those awkward and bare corners into a more functional, useful and pretty area forms the purpose of this Tuesday’s post.
Since corner’s are often tricky and for this reason under-dressed or not even touched, here are a few ideas on how to occupy all corners, if you will, of your house.
To have and to hold onto…forever
I choose to define hoarding as: ‘an over-developed ability to store all things good and possibly useful’. This could mean useful for your unborn children, unbuilt house or perhaps useful during a sudden apocalypse. This could also include eggshell boxes as paint holders should you one day become a nursery school teacher and need them in abundance.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, brass happens to be one of those timeless accents for any home. Maybe I’m biased, but everyone loves a good brass or gold piece, when it’s done well, hey? No thanks to those that have ruined the image of brass and gold in some of your eyes because of the truly sad way they’ve portrayed it.
Well, allow me to attempt to change that perception for those not so convinced and for everyone else – all that glitters is gold for the purpose of this, golden, inspirational post.
Makes a patch look like less of one. While the old school of thought followed having a set of crockery for various occasions, it seems that décor is taking a different stance. Mixing-and-Matching kitchen wear makes for a more eclectic look and feel and if a plate is broken, in true greek style or no, replacing it won’t be obvious patch work – which for me, is the biggest benefit.
So, from classic to oriental – from antique to modern – from uniform to everything goes – this “expect the unexpected” craze is the purpose of this post…
I have been trying to find a new and bigger place from what seems like the longest time. Bigger is quite relative in this instance because I currently live in a tiny studio flat so my imagination of “bigger” is anything from a bigger studio to a two bedroom. A few weeks ago I came quite close to getting a bigger studio but after viewing it, I realised it wasn’t worth the money. This disappointment aside, I’m still looking and keeping myself inspired.
Whose home is the most stylish of them all? Why, the most stylish people of course…
I thought we’d take a look at the ultimate influenced-by-fashion homes, those are the homes of the fashion influencers, get where I’m going? If they’re making it in fashion, they’re making it in interior design. We think so…
Here’s a look at some of the finest designers’ homes… From a 1988 edition of Yves Saint Lauren (now Saint Lauren) featured in Architectural Digest, to his excellency, Giorgio Armani.
If you remember toward the end of last year a new series called “Starting Out” was added to this blog as a means to gather ideas, tips and tricks for those starting a new living adventure in their lives. Be it moving into res, moving into a first apartment or buying a new and first home. The thought of getting a chance to redecorate and start fresh, how exciting!
Conveniently, the word delight contains the word light – which is what I’ll be getting at for the purpose of this post.
Lighting can seriously alter the way in which a home is received, so methinks it’s best to get it right. The correct lighting can guide the eye to various focal points and features within a room or raise the flow of energy bar from zero to well, hero.
This being only the second Thursday of the year I thought it would be fun and interesting to put together a list of some – 13 to be exact – trends expected to sweep the décor and home design world off its feet.
Happy New Year! I’m glad you chose to join this little nook of the Internet in its second year of interior décor trend-stalking and appreciation. If it’s your first time here: welcome, take your shoes off and kick back. A big thank you to the lovely Carmen for keeping this here blog ticking during the festive season – December was all her. Regardless of who is writing it, this blog is by writers who love interior décor. As such, sometimes we come up with very writer-like ideas such as rooms as adjectives. Stay with me…
