wall art

my weekly good will visit was a success.
i purchased 6 frames for $13.00.

i knew they would be perfect in my hallway.

i liked this frame but was not in love with the picture.
luckily i had some leftover fabric from my pelmet box makeover.

a couple staples in the back and the picture was transformed.

doesn’t it bring some life to my hallway?

not to shabby for $13.00.

the large picture was also purchased at a second-hand store for $5.00
i love good second-hand days!

sarah’s house

sarah’s house, a television show on hgtv, is a must see.
her recent season involved renovating an old farmhouse.
her impeccable style, understanding of scale, and use of pattern and texture is remarkable.

i dream of spending every weekend at a farmhouse like this.

hang them high

one of my favorite design tips is hanging drapery high.
typically i always hang mine floor to ceiling.
naturally, this gives the illusion of a larger space.

this tip can also be applied to the bathroom.
instead of purchasing the typical 72″ shower curtain, select drapery panels and hang them floor to ceiling.
(the trick is to hang the drapery panels on a separate rod from the plastic shower curtain liner. leave the liner at regular height and place another spring loaded shower curtain rod near the ceiling. then hang the drapery panels on the higher rod)
this makes the space look larger and more dramatic.
sherry from young house love recently adapted this tip to her home.
although the change seems subtle, the overall feeling is fantastic.
these floor to ceiling leaf print draperies sure make a statement.

what an inexpensive way to transform a bathroom.
i have the alvine kottar curtains from ikea hanging in my bathroom and i love them.
happy hanging!
