Metallics are Never a Bad Idea

Living-Room-Makeover

I am ga-ga for metallics!  And lucky for me they’re everywhere!

The value of warm metals like Gold, Bronze and Brass throughout history is undeniable, but until recently home decor was dominated by silvers and grays.  Only in the last little while are we seeing a revival of these beautiful metallics and I couldn’t be happier.

Office Makeover

This home office went from dark and dreary to light, bright, cozy and inviting – of clients and ideas!

It is now an oasis of creativity and inspiration.

The striped wall is a key element of the space.  Click here to discover how easy it is to do yourself.

Transforming a space doesn’t always require a hefty budget – with some smart DIYs you can afford to invest in special pieces that add impact, practically and reflect your personal style.  The shelves in this office were easily painted out in white and blue to reflect the theme of the room and save money!  Click here to learn how you can accomplish something similar.

Master Bedroom

This transformation has to be one of my all time favorites.  This Master Bedroom went from dark and dreary to light and glamorous.

Not every transformation requires an entire overhaul.  In this space, I kept a lot – the headboard, bedding, and mirror – and just added a few extra elements to help achieve the look.

Ahh the Desk!

This is definitely my favorite part of the office, it’s also where I spend most of my time, so it ought to be my favorite!

I feel like this little corner is the perfect reflection of who I am – a lover of simple, clean design, with a splash of pretty and feminine, and a gentle nod to the past and my heritage.  Although not Indian per-say, I absolutely LOVE the hanging lanterns, they’re totally unexpected, whimsical and remind me of the far east.

Seeing Stripes

One of the easiest and most inexpensive ways to add interest to a space is by the addition of stripes to the walls!  Although painting out all four walls of a room in stripes is a significant commitment and much more dramatic, it can be great fun and create a one of a kind room, like this great space from www.yellowsubstudio.com.

I decided to stick to one wall … for now 😉  My inspiration for the stripes came from wanting to brighten up my office without having to paint out the entire room and cover up some patched holes.
