Tuesday’s Tips: make your home feel larger

image

I was reading an article on Elle Decor yesterday that had some cool tips to make your space feel larger. It was funny because the post also had more images of the home I posted in this post. You can also see that living room below. So I’m categorizing this in both my Tuesday’s Tips and Remember When tabs. Above they combined panels to form one large massive canvas of DIY art which is genius and critical when hanging art in a home with high ceilings. I’m moving into a condo that has high vaulted ceilings in the living/dining area so I know buying art and wall decor has to be sizeable and to scale. Otherwise it will look silly.

Another trick is taping rugs together to make one large area rug. That too is a great idea and will possibly save you money as large scale rugs are typically expensive. You can also lay them close together on rug grip pads to prevent them from moving apart or the rugs sliding around. Speaking of rugs….I purchased two for only 96 bucks because Rugs USA had a 75% off with free shipping sale that I couldn’t pass up. One is a white furry shag rug is 5×3 ft and one with a cobalt blue design that’s 5×8. I can’t wait till they arrive. This is not a sponsored post, I am just too happy about that deal and the selection. I will definitely use them for clients.

Remember when I blogged about putting chairs in odd corners?

image

I intially blogged about ways to make use of odd corners and featured the pic below. You can see that post here. Then I came across Coco & Kelley’s post showcasing the entire home. It’s dark and moody and the palette consists of just gray, white and black. The textures and layering allows the space to feel cozy and not become boring. It’s very masculine but fine for a woman too.

Then I saw the kitchen and realized I also blogged about that on my decorating with cutting boards post.

Lovely black gallery wall…

I love coming across home tours of rooms I’ve blogged about before. You can see all of the times it has happened in my Remember When archives.

Remember When….I created that last collage…

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. 👊

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.

Remember when I blogged about this room…well the home tour has a ladies drinking parlor

image

Designed by Margaux Interiors, this “ladies drinking parlor” is fabulous. I mean, a room devoted to drinking? A mom cave or a lady cave where no men are allowed. I love that idea. They can keep their cigar room….we will have a drinking parlor. I really love the bold drapery and fluffy rug.

You can see more of the home on Sukio. In case you forgot, the first room I blogged about was this black and white glam indulge daily.

Remember when…I blogged about this living room? The rest of the penthouse is gorge

image

Here is the original image from the indulge daily post. I won’t be satisfied until I own a condo in the sky. It doesn’t have to be big just high up, near clouds, with a view. This is located on the 77th floor of the Trump tower. And if you have a little $12.5 million, it can be yours.

That view!! So dark, moody and beautiful.
