Here is what I'm reading in the world of design and decor right now.
I have some new projects on the horizon and I figured if I put it out here in a public format, I would be more likely to actually get them done:
- Fabric headboard for bedroom
- Big boy's pillows/comforter
- Pillows for SALE at my Etsy shop
I haven't been completely lazy though. I've rearranged my dining/living room. It is amazing how big of a change that can make in a place. I wish I had taken before pics (I may have some on my camera I'll check), but I will definitely post some after shots. I am currently waiting to purchase a Mid-Century console to use as my TV stand/Media Storage or something like that. Rearranging your furniture is also a green way to redecorate. If you're thinking about rearranging your own, here are some tips from AT:
- •Have a friend help. It makes moving heavy pieces a lot easier, it provides you with a second opinion, and it gives you the energy to keep going.
- Map out ideas with a sketch or a free online program. *I like to make sketches before I start any new project. My husband makes fun of my sketches, but they become my road map for recreating a room.
- Have a plan, but don't be afraid to change it. We never know what something's going to look like until we see it in place.
- Use your largest pieces as anchors for the space. Move sofas, large tables, and large storage pieces first and rearrange your smaller furniture around them.
- Clear out space. If an arrangement isn't working, try removing one or two pieces of furniture. Many people have too much furniture, and by taking a big item out of the equation you can open up a whole new set of possibilities.
- Don't be afraid of empty space. If you really need a new piece to make your furniture arrangement work, leave that space empty for a little while, and take some time to find the right item.
