Next week, we have a big event coming up here in America. It’s America’s birthday, otherwise known as the 4th of July! You know I love to show off my American spirit with crafts and other patriot-themed projects. I just didn’t realize how many red-white-and-blue crafts I’ve posted over the years to celebrate life in the US of A….until I started rounding them up this morning. Just in case you need a few ideas for joining in the celebration of America, this week, here are 10 Ways to show Your American Pride made by myself and my talented contributors. Enjoy!
Having a dedicated place to sit down and work, write, chat on the phone, or make lists is a luxury not all of us enjoy in our homes. It’s called an office space, and those of us who have a dedicated room for one need to count our blessings! Surprisingly enough, you don’t have to go to a designer showroom to get furniture like what’s pictured in the room above. There are ways to get that look for less, and I’m about to show you five.
I spotted this lovely living room at House of Turquoise, and it just seemed to embody the fresh, airy feeling of Spring. The living room that caught my eye looks so light and cool with it’s combination of washed out sun yellow and sky blue. I definitely love the custom woodwork (that window seat!) and the eclectic blend of furnishings. I’m happy to say that if you want a room like this, you can have it! I’ve collected tutorials for projects that can help you copy some of the fun design elements of this room and put them in your own house. Enjoy!
This very neutral-toned room stopped me in my tracks. Featured on Houzz, it is sepia colored, like an old photograph. Lots of texture and all of those gorgeous pillows make this space look warm and welcoming. I’ve found five ways for you to get a high-style look like this for low-budget prices.
