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.
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.
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.
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.
It was an indulge daily. Well, here is the rest of the Aspen home featured in Architectural Digest. That room has an amazing view. I wouldn’t mind looking out at something so breathtaking daily. See more rooms with views here. … Continue reading →
It was the brass hardware, antique lighting and marble surfaces that drew me to her kitchen as seen in this Indulge Daily post. I even first blogged about those beautiful door knockers below in the ways to beautify closet doors … Continue reading →
You can see that post here. But I always wondered how the rest of that home looked. Here it is… Faux chincilla from Zgallerie & floating shelves from Ikea… The nails were hammered in in a diy project… Crystals were … Continue reading →
