Tuesday Tip-Delightful Daybeds

Posted By: Terri

Today’s Tuesday Tip is all about the Delightful Daybed.

The holidays are just around the corner and there’s always that possibility of an overnight guest needing a place to stay. The daybed is  the perfect solution for offering a secluded space for one and at the same time can be put in  dual purpose setting because the daybed doesn’t actually look like a bed and can be a welcome addition to just about any living space in your home.

Daybeds can be found in a bevy of price points ranging from $500-$5,000,but you needn’t spend a fortune to make your daybed look luxe.  Simply  by adding some beautiful pillows, cover  the bed with a comfy duvet or bedspread (preferably tucked in if the daybed you have has a mattress)   and add a major pop of decor like an impressive overhead canopy or some pretty eye catching rugs, coffee or side tables and whah lah…you have a room ready for any guest to feel welcome and pampered.

If you’re looking for a little daybed dreaminess, here are a few examples that I hope will inspire.

Sensational Shoe Shelving

I have a sneaking suspicion that you and I have more than a few things in common. ( How do I know this..Well, I’m not a psychic but if you’re reading my blog you most likely have a hankering for fashion).  

For instance..if I were to guess…You probably own a “number (usually in the double digits)  of very pretty shoes that one might even consider “Works of Art.” Now,  I’m not proposing  that these pretty shoes be put in a  museum, absolutely not (beautiful shoes are meant to be worn) BUT, if you happen to be needing some additional storage space for these “Oh so special & pretty pairs” I have a little DIY solution for you  today.

I have uncovered not one but two creative ways to display and store shoes that are  DIY- doable  and assembled with materials that are easy to find!

If you’re looking for ways to display your prettiest pairs or just need some wall art..this might just do the trick.

**Shelf doesn’t have to be made of wood! Even books can do the same! This wall is awesomely decorated with shelves made of book to display an array of stylish footwear. What’s great is that making them is not that hard at all. You can use L-brackets as the base to secure the book. Make sure the book pages is glued tightly so they won’t be flipping around when the wind blows. You can also spray coat the exterior with protective coating to protect its surface.

Halloween Pumpkin Prep…

FUN FACT….

Halloween is the second most celebrated holiday of the entire year! Christmas still holds the number one spot but seriously (????) Halloween has out -spotted Thanksgiving in the scheme of holiday celebrations!?  THAT is making quite a statement.

Halloween’s style quota  has exploded in terms of  Halloween costumes available for ADULTS, massive and might I add outlandish Halloween parties, and indoor and outdoor decor.

And….speaking of holiday decor..did you get the memo that carving pumpkins  is no more. At the very least there seems to be a major push to paint your pumpkins and if you have the artistic skills of Picasso-well all the better. I could not believe my eyes when I came upon this assortment of pumpkins that would be perfect for porch display.

If you’re looking to put down your pumpkin carving knife and paint a fantastical design this Halloween, here are a few  painted pumpkin options that I hope  will inspire.

Doors of Distinction

Posted By: Terri
Category: Glamorous Decor

I have always had a penchant for ornate front doors.

Doors adorned with intricate details are usually reserved for Historical buildings, Churches or Museums. The craftsmanship of each of these beautiful doors is indicative of a bygone era requiring hours of labor on behalf of an Artist with creative vision, attention to detail and major design skills.

As I sourced this selection of ornate doors,one fun fact came to “light”… all are located in Paris.

Paris….The city of light,love and beautiful doors.
