Tiny Tot Thursday: striped walls and ceilings

image

I really like the school desks painted in a hip and modern way. Fun pattern and colors will keep children engaged in homework and learning…

A cute tween room with a grown up feel. Using adult headboards and lighting will make it easier to transition as she grows older. It’ll also prove cheaper for the parent as they won’t have to buy new furniture every few years….

A home and blog with nothing but black and white…

image

Color schemes. Well for the most part at least. When I first came across Stylizimo Blog, I literally went page by page in the archives. It’s just that good. I like the poster size art which I’m slowly incorporating in my own home. I like them for the large scale and you can find inexpensive prints at Michael’s or Hobby Lobby…

Bathroom virtual design…

image

I know….another bathroom post for the week. My friend in Atlanta wanted a virtual design for her guest bathroom. She already purchased this vanity and a matching cabinet. After consulting with her and finding out the light fixture she purchased was in bronze,  I came up with these options to choose from. I wanted the rest of the fixture and hardware options to be in the same metal as the light. I gave her three potential color schemes to go with. I also advised her to remove the builder basic mirror and replace with a decorative mirror. You can find some sizeable mirrors at Marshalls, Tjmaxx and Homegoods for as low as $24. I also gave her some tile options. Did you know Home Depot has adhesive tile that has an easy installation and can be removed with a hair dryer? The subway tile and mosaic tile in the last design are adhesive. It’s great mess-free update for those who rent and can’t do anything permanent. To help aide in her decision I gave her sources, paint colors and some drawings to show her how to style it. Which design would you pick?

Bathrooms with black walls….

image

You know black is my favorite color and though I wouldn’t want the walls of a lone bathroom black, I wouldn’t mind having one if I had several bathrooms to design. There is something so dramatic about a powder room that’s moody and bold in dark walls or wallpaper. Whether paint or tile, you will see the boldness is in full bathrooms in this post.

A playful yet sophisticated Vancouver penthouse condo…

Offsetting the white concrete floor is extreme attention to the fifth wall
made with embossed tin painted in black. It adds an interesting texture to a space often forgotten. Some rooms were inspired by Adam Levine‘s home and I can see the inspiration with the wood.

This bold ceiling design is just so awesome…

Talk about an element of surprise. Everything about this design is right up my alley from the wood grain, the mirrors, the disk shaped hardware, the lighting pendants, and the color black.

Remember When….I created that last collage…

image

You can see that collage here. The next day I stumbled upon Bliss At Home which had a knock off DIY tutorial of the Worlds Away Anna bar cabinet and boy did she knock it out. 👊

image

I don’t know what I like best: the leopard lining or the teal hue. I know one thing, it inspires me to want to change my hardware on everything.

The rest of her home and the DIY projects is equally gorgeous.

Monday Morning Inspiration 3.24.14 if you let people break your spirit…

I had a completely different route I was going to take for today’s quotes until Mr. Monday Nights (actor/model Harold House Moore from vh1’s Single Ladies) posted this on his instagram this morning. It needed to be reposted. Hope this and the latter quotes gives you the needed motivation to continue your dreams.

I incorporated some pretty curb appeal with the added thought of, when one door closes…..another will open.
