It’s no secret I love Chevron, it is such a popular print, and comes in so many modern color combinations. It can be used in so many ways…around the home, and on clothing and accessories. My Craft Spotlight has a fabulous collection of DIY Chevron Projects – 30 to be exact. So hop on over and check them out. Here’s a few of my favorites.
A while back a dear friend of mine let me come up with some design ideas for her daughter, Madelyn’s room. Take a look at the original digital design post for the before pictures. She didn’t go for the striped wall I planned, but we got to try out just about everything else! Here’s the reveal She loves her big girl room, and at 8, I’m sure she’ll love it for years to come as she grows too!
So… I didn’t fall in love with any pre-made wrapping paper’s this season, so I made my own using Kraft Paper, Felt, and Yarn! Here’s a Tutorial for the designs I’ve come up with, so you can make your own too! It doesn’t take as long as you would think once you get in the swing of things, give it a try and just wait to see the smile on your gift recipient’s face when they see their gorgeous gifts!
Finally some photos from Crystal’s awesome Carnival Baby Shower from October. I had so much fun coming up with ideas to decorate this party! Circus Party decorations are so bright and cheery and perfect for a child’s birthday or baby shower!
Welcome to Our Home
Well, besides creeping into backgrounds this will be the first time I share my home with you. Today we’ll tour my master bedroom which is still very much a work in progress, but if I waited for everything to be completed you’d probably never get a glimpse inside…so here goes nothing.
Getting a Design Plan Together
So I love to have a plan before I start decorating any room. Many designers out there create a style board, which is an awesome way to let people see all the elements of the room in one glance. I wish I knew how to do those, finding something online, cutting it out of its background, and placing it on a white background with all kinds of other designs…but alas, just not a skill I’ve mastered yet. But I can kick some butt in Power Point, which is what I used to create this design. Layering shapes, importing pictures from retail site all to create an elevation of what each wall will look like….
I love this fabric. It’s modern but kind of crisp at the same time. Great for anything around the home. I’ve seen people use it for curtains, pillows, on furniture. This picture is from a magnetic memo board I did but I can’t find this color on Fabric.com anymore….hate when that happens. I do happen to have this fabric in green/white and charcoal/white. I’ll be posting about a bench re-do with the charcoal on the reupholstered seat. Here’s a sneak peek of the finished project
