Tuesday’s Tips: you’re not superwoman…

image

So don’t feel asking for help is beneath you. You aren’t frowned upon or looked at as a failure. Last time I checked we only have two hands and sometimes we need another 6 to get things done. Here is where your mouth can help. Simply ask. You may find people are more willing to assist than you think. More than likely after you ask, you will be happy you did and wish that you had done it sooner. So the next time you find yourself unable to complete everything or simply need help….ask. I promise, you won’t get looked at as not being able to do it all….you may even be able to do MORE because you would have the help to do so.

Tuesday’s Tips: curtain panels for bathroom showers

image

I am moving in a little over a month and will have three bathrooms to decorate so I’m trying to find inspiring ideas. I have always loved the modern take on the old school curtain look for the shower. Nowadays people are using grommet curtain panels, raising the rod near the ceiling and having panels puddle to the floor. I really love this idea but I think I want to use clips to hold the fabric instead of grommets. For fact, I will have two panels….just need to zero down on fabric.

Something very enveloping and comforting happens when there are two panels. Simply use a tension rod to hang the liner and move it to one side so you don’t see it. A fabric that blends in with the tile is very chic…

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.

Tuesday’s Tips: Hide a tv in the mouth of a fireplace

image

Some people don’t use their fireplaces so if you don’t you can always place the tv there. The tv goes unnoticed and is a good way to prevent the tv from being the focal point. In this case the tv is only placed in front but still works.
