Pegboards For Every Room

I stumbled upon a few interesting examples of pegboards being used in places where I would have never guessed. We usually think of pegboards as sturdy boards with grids of pre-drilled holes that fit hooks and pegs- essential parts of garages and tool sheds. But seeing them in kitchens, craft rooms, bedrooms, and art studios just blows me away.....

I hope to inspire you to put your DIY hats on and build one of these organizers.. I am totally in love with pegboards and I think they are brilliant, simple, and inexpensive ways to keep everything organized. What do you think?

Pretty Plates On The Walls

There are several fun, innovative ways to brighten up your blank walls and add personality to your home. One of my favorite design tips is decorating walls with colorful plates. With the help of either an adhesive disc plate hanger or command strips, any plate can go on the wall. I would start with a template that combines plates of different sizes, colors, patterns, and shapes and lay them out on the floor to see the final outcome. Just remember to explore different options so that you can find your true voice as an artist. Creativity involves breaking away from established patterns in order to look at things in a different way.

Tell me what you think of these plate collages.. do they look balanced and visually appealing? Which one is your favorite? Would you decorate a blank wall in your home with plates?

Luxe Home Decor

Are you looking to add luxe style decor to your home? Well, one way is to seamlessly incorporate gold color accessories with furniture you currently have. The glittering gold tones these furnishings radiate will immediately transform any room into a luxurious, glam space.  This color in general adds a feminine touch and blends in with other palettes. Having the right amount of this tone is important; too much might make the room look flashy or ornate.

I have some ideas with shades of gold ranging from earthy to bright... you can see how the room brightens up with a sparkle!

Interesting Color Wheels

How many of you believe in color having an influence on one's mood and well being? Or do you just think it's pseudoscientific? Most of the time, we start with a few of our favorite colors and decorate the home based on these choices. Color therapy has been around since ancient times, when colors were infused for healing purposes. This led to interesting color wheels such as the ones shown below. I can see how the color green can represent fertility and red can symbolize loudness.. do you agree with these conclusions and would you use such a color wheel?
