How to style a room with just accessories

Sometimes just organizing a room and throwing in some plants, new pillows and a few picture frames does the trick. I love Emily Henderson’s style and how she spruced up this living room- something a quick trip to target, home goods and a plant store/home depot can fix!

breakfast bar essentials

The past few apartments I lived in all had breakfast bars, but finding cool stools that didn’t take up much space was difficult. In come the Tabouret Stools- colorful, great clean lines, and stackable to get them out of the way when not being used! I found interior designer Benjamin Dhong and love how he used them to add color to this kitchen. Click the photo to go to Overstock.com, where you can purchase them for $89.99 for a set of 2- so many colors to choose from!

re-decorating for a retiree

I love how the interior designer Emily Henderson uses bright colors and awesome patterns in all of her projects. She recently re-did the home of a woman living in a retirement home and turned it into something I would love to live in! Turqouise, teal and coral… GORGEOUS! My favorite part might be the little detail of building glass shelves into the window sills to create a vertical garden.

Bar Carts

One of my friends has an empty little nook in his kitchen between where the built in cabinets end and the wall is. He is currently keeping his fully stocked bar in the corner of his counter top, taking up some prime real estate. I’ve been trying to keep my eye out for an affordable bar cart, but they all seem to be insanely expensive for what it is. I found these 10 great DIYs of various bar carts. This one, the boldest and brightest, had a former life of being a school AV cart- grey and dingy. I’m sure you remember these from back in grade school when they used to house the projector machine!

8 homes under 400 sq feet

This photo is of a 200 Square foot apt. I’m fascinated by the way people can organize and decorate small spaces, and make them look so livable and stylish (a wide angle lens helps too!). Click on the photo to see Apartment Therapy’s top 8 homes under 400 Square feet. Very inspiring

Rawr!

If you know me, you know I’m into the bright and quirky, and sometimes slightly weird things. I saw somethings similar to this posted on a blog awhile back and it made me smile. All you need is some spray paint, a dinosaur toy, and an air plant!

I’m not the most patient person so this is my T-Rex soaking up some sun, trying to dry off.

Airplants, contrary to what I thought before I googled them, do actually need to be soaked in water every week or so.

Once this guy has a permanent home, I’ll throw up a pic of him in his new surroundings.

Permanent Year-Round streamer Decorations

Permanent Year-Round streamer Decorations

I saw the below creation by confettisystems.com on a blog I read over a year ago, but it wasn’t until February that I attempted my own version with some crepe paper I found around the house. I originally made a strand with the reds and pinks and gold shiny streamers for valentines day, and added orange to create a year round color punch as a permanent fixture. Let me know if you want some instruction on how to create one of these!
