A big bowl can be used for printed pictures ot postcards which is an awesome conversation starter. Smaller bowls can hold match boxes, post earrings, spare batteries for a coffee table, loose change for an entry table.
You know how that voice in your head sometimes makes you feel inadequate? It may tell you you’re not good enough, smart enough, cannot and will not get that done. “That” thing you want to get done may be a short term, long term or life changing goal or accomplishment. Sometimes it’s not the people around you that makes us feel insecure. It may very well be ourselves.
We can be our biggest hater (I hate that overused word), our biggest blocker. Often times we believe our own hype. All hype aint good hype though. Don’t allow yourself to feel as if you will lose before you even get started. We have nothing but time and all we can do is try. You’d rather try than be old and wrinkly rocking away in someone’s chair mad at the things you didn’t do or attempt, right? So do them. Set those goals. Do something daily to achieve them.
I have never been one to gravitate toward concealed refrigerators mainly because nicer top of the line ones are quite beautiful. I’ve shared this sentiment in the past on my post about my trip to Chicago’s Merchandise Mart. Though this post is filled nicely designed paneled fridges, I may be in the minority as a designer who prefers seeing the real thing especially in a kitchen where there is already so much cabinetry. What are your thoughts?
In case you missed the first of a four part installment, this is a mini series on places to put art. So many people think they don’t have wall space but in this series you may be inspired to hang art in areas of the home you never thought about. Take a look at these bathrooms with a variety of art subjects…not just seashells which is typical.
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.
I just love everything I see here. The tufted bench is rich in color, the rug is gorgeous, the large art is so grand against the concrete walls and it’s all illuminated with a nice sputnik chandelier.
