Is It A Stack of Books? -NO! It’s A Staircase

It’s truly amazing what some imagination and craftiness can do to a set of stairs! Pippa Branham, a bibliophile from England, painted her staircase to look like the spine of her and her husband’s 13 favorite books. She says that she was inspired by an image she saw on Pinterest. For all of us, Pippa shared some images of how she transformed the  wooden stairs into colorful “books” using brushes, tape, paint and, of course, time (6 weeks). The whole project cost the family less than $200, which was less expensive than carpeting the stairs. Pippa declared that  the most difficult part of the project was painting sets of letters sideways. Pippa is a young mother and to ensure the stairs were safe for kids (and not slippery from the paint), she mixed the paint with a small amount of kid’s play sand to make it grittier. If you are a [ Continue reading ]

An Old Door Design

I found a nice solid old door at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore for just a couple of dollars.   The door just happened to be the exact width of two craft crates that I got on sale. I went to the hardware store and got one board to top off the crates and one for a shelf. I replaced the glass with bead board… it was more practical. And then Lots and lots of paint… First I painted everything with black acrylic paint I had left over from another project. Then when that dried I coated everything with a white satin acrylic paint. I put it all together with some brackets and hooks and decorative knobs I got 75% off at the craft store. I then distressed it lightly and glazed it with Valspar Antiquing Glaze. I really like it because I wanted it more black and white than [ Continue reading ]

3 Spring Trends

If you haven’t already thought about redecorating something in your house with the arrival of spring, well now is the time! If you wonder what should you change I suggest to find places in your house which are in need of a little bit of life. The first trend I’d like to speak about is the Color White. I know, I know white isn’t really a color, but this spring you need to bring light in your house and decorating in white (and add a pop of color) is the main thing to do for a brighter home. The second trend speaks about imposing colors as green, baby blue, yellow on velvet couches and on little accessories like flower vases, a green plant, a blanket or candle jars. The last, but not the least trend speaks about decorating with a mix of patterns. I mean, try to mix something that [ Continue reading ]

Colors For Spring

Spring is coming and we need new inspiration, new ideas. But when it comes to decorate our room with new furniture or little decorations we have to know what colors are in trend for this year. It seems that a one color look for your room is now enough to make it look great! YELLOW Yellow is not the easiest color to decorate with, but if you get it right, yellow can be sunny and uplifting. All you have to do is to play with textures and patterns. ORANGE A more contemporary choice than strong reds, orange works best when used in moderation. GREEN Fresh, moss greens work best in a hall, garden room or conservatory – rooms that link to the outside. There are also some colors that you can use by itself: blue, pastel pink,violet.

Casa Azul by Cincopatasalgato

” Happy, serene, gentle, friendly, good-hearted young family of 4 built this beach house at Costa Azul, an hour and half away from San Salvador and close to the border with Guatemala. Husband and father works in capital investment and wife and mother is the owner of La Luna de Mateo in San Salvador, a kids’ playhouse that caters to their imagination and need for exploration. Both born and raised in El Salvador, they resettled in their native country after years of traveling and living abroad to build a home that spoke to their gentle nature. Their new home, built right on the beach, allowed their children Mateo and Luna, 6 and 4 respectively, to play and explore at their hearts’ desire. Between choosing the location and designing the home, their ideal home would have the following elements – simple, elegant, inviting, and connected with nature, with modern yet rustic [ Continue reading ]

Make your small space look like a big one

Do you think that if you have a small place you can’t design it as good as a big one? That’s a wrong mentality! You can design it as beautiful as a big one or even better. What is the advantage of having a small house? You can find things easier, it will become a cozy place soon, you can live by yourself never wondering what would you do alone in such a big place. So, how can we decorate a small place? – Find that expandable furniture for your place. It will make it more spacious; – Fill it with pictures of your family, friends; – Paint the rooms in a bright color or white ( it will give the impression of a bigger space); – Baskets under the bed are a great place to stash extra stuff; – A bench at the foot of the bed creates plenty [ Continue reading ]

Dark Rooms

 Christopher Leach once told us, ‘be brave and decorate with dark color. It doesn’t mean you will end up with a room of Stygian gloom. If a space doesn’t receive much natural light, there is no jolly yellow or bright white on earth that will remedy it.’ Black was always my go-to color, my favorite one, so that’s why I thought about talking about dark rooms, black walls. Cause why not? If you are stylish enough, and you know how to make it work, your room won’t look grungy,but intimate,romantic.

Apartments designed for young families

When you are just married and you will finally buy your own house for living with your husband/wife you want to find the perfect one. At first, I advise you to search for smaller apartments, not bigger ones but designed for younger people. For example, a bathroom equipped. When buying a house for a younger family I think about investing a lot in the technology, not the house itself. I mean, smart lights and TVs, a music player and a lot of gadgets. I also think about making the home more cozy, use a lot of photos with us in house, try to use more colors for room décor and also personalize it for your own pleasure. Your bedroom should be technology-free, just a place where you two can relax and talk about future plans. Feel it with plants to send you more energy by only looking at them, and [ Continue reading ]
