Decorate with your Dinnerware

September 3rd 2009

Did you know you can decorate with your dinnerware? No, I am not talking about tablescapes either…think wall art! Grouping a few graphic dinner plates for wall display can add a dramatic touch to your interior decor. Not only will your unusual decor make a statement, but it is a cheap alternative to expensive framed photos and paintings.

Not only are these wall displays interesting, they have a really cool eclectic feel to them. You can also check out more plates displays over at Casa Sugar, they even have some DIY tips for making one of your own.

Garden Goodies

June 18th 2009

I love to garden. There is something so soothing about dewy grass and the smell of soil to me. During Spring and Summer, I like to be outdoors in the garden as much as possible. If you like to garden as well, I am sure you will enjoy these fabulous Etsy garden goodies I discovered. Bring a bit of your love for the garden indoors. Take a look!

Decorating with Photos

May 20th 2009

Using family photos is a great way to decorate not only your home, but also any party space. The next time you are entertaining in your home, consider using personal photos as decoration. If you are hosting a formal dinner party with friends, gather a few photos of your guests and place them in simple frames. Set the photos in your entry way, the bar area, or the dessert table. Not only will this add a personal touch– I am sure the photographs will stir up conversation as well.

If you are celebrating a birthday, graduation, bridal shower, or other memorable occasion– gather photos of the guest of honor to display. Selecting candid shots always gives framed photos a sense of life that others will enjoy looking at.

Reuse Items for Unique Home Decor

April 8th 2009

Take a double look, these items are not what they appear to be. A new green trend is to reuse and re-purpose items around the house to fit your needs. Here are two creative ideas I just had to share!

Books for shelves? License plates as bookends? Who would have thought?
