It’s something we often forget but just because a pillow is intended for outdoor purposes doesn’t mean you can’t use it indoors. In Target over the weekend I saw such bright cushions and immediately thought about how they could help liven a space indoors for cheap. You see, dpending on the store, outdoor cushions are cheaper. In Target theirs start at $14 and this week they have a sale for $11.99.
When placing art in your home, the best thing you can do is properly illuminate the piece so that it can be appreciated in the best light. There are a few ways to do this, one being back lighting. This modern take is my personal fav. It also looks hip and cool if a built-in has back lighting. Here are some examples.
Love this purple illuminated collection display.
Halogen lights cast the purest white light which are said to be idea for illuminating most art. But they generate heat so they need to be placed far away enough to not affect it.
Found this on Pinterest. Throw all the travel sized, hotel shampoos, conditioner, soap & toothpastes in a pretty apothecary jar, basket or tray for the spare bathroom when you have guests. Go a step a further and do like I done for my wedding clients. I put basics in the women’s bathroom inside a basket. Things like lent rollers, safety pins, bobby pins, or things one typically forgets at home. Doing this in a guest room/bath prevents them from feeling as if they’re bothering you by asking and it keeps them from going through your medicine cabinets (if there’s one bathroom).
I am not sponsored by Giani Granite but saw first hand how well a painted counter can be transformed with one of their kits. My cousins are in the process of updating their kitchen. One day I went there to see the new backsplash above and thought “oh yall got granite too” then my cousin’s husband broke it down for me. Showed me the technique, how simple it was with the sponges etc and how he even created veins to make the countwr look like real granite stone. I was beyond impressed. But when he told me the price, I was floored. You mean to tell me….with a little patience & time over a weekend one can update basic laminate for under 100 bucks? No more excuses for crappy counters.
Above are some color kits and what they can create. The emerald almost looks like malachite.
