We’re not going to sugarcoat it for you: The winter blues are a very real thing. There’s something about the cold weather and minimal sunlight that makes us want to curl up in our beds and watch Netflix until spring. Okay, it’s not entirely a bad thing. As design enthusiasts, we genuinely love hanging out in our own space. But feeling sleepy or sluggish? Um, no thank you. (далее…)
They say money can’t buy you love, but it can buy you some great design.
Whether your churn out a D.I.Y. project or buy the finest piece at a fancy, shmancy design show, you’ll always spend some money on your furniture and accessories. The question is, how much do you want to spend? (далее…)
Trends may come and go, but you’ll always have your bedroom. Sure, you’ll probably ditch your duvet in the summer or swap out your throw pillows, but you won’t change your bedroom as often as your sheets. After all, there are only so many times you can switch up your layout or replace your bed frame. (далее…)
Unless you have a floor-to-ceiling mirror that takes up an entire wall, you probably overlook all the mirrors in your home. Sure, you peer into ’em to evaluate your outfit, check your makeup, and remove the remnants of this morning’s breakfast from your teeth, but rarely take the time to ogle at all their intricate details.

When decorating your home, color has the power to completely transform the place. A relaxing color can transform your room into a soothing oasis or add a jolt of energy to your kitchen or living room. And if you’re working with a smaller space, some colors can even make your space look bigger. (далее…)
Where has the year gone? It feels like just yesterday we were basking in the hot summer sun, but now we’re bundled up in winter clothes and gearing up for a new year. But there are a couple things to do before we ring in 2019. We have to set our (and our home’s) New Year’s resolutions, for starters. But we also have to buy a calendar for the 12 months ahead.

Once upon a time, the space underneath our bed was a scary space. As kids, we were often terrified that a monster or zombie was down there, waiting for us to fall asleep to crawl out of hiding. Today, something scarier is occupying that space: Clutter. Yes, we’re talking about winter boots, old magazines—you name it, it’s probably down there. (далее…)
If you compulsively follow #TinyHouse and #TinyLiving on social media or consider yourself a full-fledged follower of the Tiny House Movement, it can be easy to forget that tiny houses aren’t just a social media phenomenon. It can be hard to remember that people actually live in these teeny, tiny spaces. Truth is, it can be a wonderful way to have the house of your dreams—without spending a fortune. (далее…)
