Decorating for Dummies - Craft Area

Pin It


This is my little area I carved out at the top of the stairs to be creative in. I keep a lot of my supplies here, make notes and to-do lists, write letters (although this doesn't happen as often as it should) and sometimes work on sewing...which I am slowly learning how to do!

I love all of the textures in this space and how the light hits it so that it almost glows as the sun sets. I think my favorite project in this space is the chalkboard on top of the desk. It only took about 5 minutes to paint it on, it looks fantastic and is hugely practical!

Decorating for Dummies - Projects/ Computer Room

NEW and IMPROVED computer decor HERE and HERE!

I am almost finished with the computer "room" in our new house, so keep checking back, pictures will be arriving soon!


This is the initial view of the computer room. More projects and improvements have been made to help those huge white areas, so check back soon!
***********************************************************************************



Here are two bookshelves that needed some help matching the rest of the room, so I covered all of the books that didn't match the scheme in a brown Kraft paper that now coordinates quite nicely.
***********************************************************************************



Those lights are fake! I needed something to add height to those huge ceilings and had extra lampshades lying around, so up they went!
***********************************************************************************



The first installment of my ladder project. I painted the old apple picking ladder I found in the carriage house and then added raffia thread around two rungs to hold photographs in. Now there are newspapers hanging from the other rings which serves a practical purpose, but also adds another note of black and white into the room.

Decorating for Dummies - Home Tour

This is the back entryway, the mudroom of our house. I stripped all of the wallpaper, gave it a fresh coat of white and turned it into a very functional place. There is storage for shoes, bills, stamps, keys, phonebook, kitty litter and more in this tiny space.
***********************************************************************************




This is a view of the kitchen from two angles. Even though there is a picture on the fridge and various groceries, etc on the counter, the color scheme still speaks due to the repetition of the colors that have been carried over from the adjacent mudroom and laundry room. The colors coordinate with the rest of the rooms on this floor.
***********************************************************************************


A drawer full of decorating supplies. Notice how everything coordinates even inside my drawers so that it is easy to create spaces that work together aesthetically.
***********************************************************************************



Entryway! I picked a strong color in this area because it is fairly small and I can escape it if the color is too strong! Notice the elements I chose to make the entryway function beautifully...in and out boxes, key hooks, closet, mirror, etc...
***********************************************************************************






This is my favorite seat in the house! Notice the angles between the couch, trunk, bamboo, shelves, etc.
***********************************************************************************




The guest bedroom. Notice how the furniture balances across the room. I have plans to add more dried roses on the right side to bulk up that section of the wall. Keep the flowers coming honey!
***********************************************************************************




This is the master bedroom. Notice how the sheers are kinda dead against that faded white wall. I'm trying to find a new color to replace them!



A bookshelf that is still bothering me. I like the 1st and 3rd shelves, but don't know how to fix the middle. I might end up just filling it with books! How novel!

More photographs will be coming soon! Check back often!
