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.
So I have been making some huge improvements to my kitchen this month. Yesterday I showed you my new Formica countertop with a Karran undermount sink. I thought I would try my hand at doing a subway tile backsplash (literally – see picture below). I have never tiled before so I hit the internet to find You tube videos and blog posts to show me the way. I will say it is rather easy if you have the right tools. However, those tricky cuts around outlets and switches are KILLER! This is definitely a full weekend project.
