DIY: Marble Dipped Mugs

By | July 6th, 2015|DIY|

More home owners these days are doing away with wall to wall kitchen cabinetry and are instead replacing them with open shelves. You might be a little frightened by the idea of having all your dishes and tableware out in the open. However, there are several tips to keep your shelves looking pretty and clutter free. In addition, these DIY marble dipped mugs are a great way to add a unique touch to your shelves! It is the cheapest project I have done, and takes about 10 minutes to make. All you need is white mugs, nail polish, and a disposable plastic container. Now you may already have these on hand, but if not, I spent two dollars on 4 white, ceramic mugs from Goodwill and I am betting you can find some at your local thrift store as well.

It isn’t a new idea for the outdoors to inspire the design in an interior, but thanks to some much needed sunny weather in Dallas that has everyone outside, we are suddenly re-inspired by nature. In interior design world wood accents are all the rage. It adds such a mixture of texture and material to a room. Since wood is a familiar element, it can often make a space feel more approachable and inviting. No matter your preferred design aesthetic or budget, there is certainly a lot of potential to add a wood element into your existing decor.

Now that school and the sun is finally out, summer is in full force.

INSPIRE: Palm Stylin’

By | May 13th, 2015|Inspire|

I might be late to the party on decorating with the bold, leafy palm … but after seeing this pattern consistently for several years now, I think I can finally say that I love it! It has such a Palm Beach-esque / regal / classic feel. I’m pretty sure I need to add this print somewhere in my house STAT! The floor to ceiling wallpaper doesn’t even bother me in this room. It somehow works.

DIY: Branch Art

By | May 11th, 2015|DIY|

Bringing the outdoors in has long been a staple for interior designers when decorating a space. Organic material symbolizes life and thus creates an environment that stimulates energy and brain function. However, if you are like me and don’t have a green thumb, creating the illusion of greenery is really quite easy. Using tree branches, you can create a unique piece of art that looks elegant, rustic, modern, or contemporary. It’s really what type of media you chose to assemble with it; ornate frames lend itself to a more traditional look, while wood frames with larger branches feel rustic. You can also paint the branches, or leave it natural. I think it’s best to use a neutral color, to keep it looking organic. Photo by Tracie Stoll of Cleverly Inspired
