So, exciting news last night. Someone who bought one of my rightleftstudio calendars this year showed a little diy modification on her blog (which is super-fun btw...). She used a skull stamp so that it would fit in with her skull-themed bathroom. Admittedly, I had a little trouble picturing this, but upon seeing the photos, I think it looks really awesome! Plus, what a clever way to hang a calendar...
Thanks Kelly! View her original post here, and be sure to check out some of her other fun crafty ideas...
Lotta Jansdotter is a favorite of mine. I've loved her prints and fabrics ever since I first saw them, with their beautiful simplicity. Yesterday I stumbled across a tour of her (small-725 sqft!!) home, and had to share. Her style is fresh and comfortable, creative and simple. Lots of great space saving ideas (check out the dining table-work and laptop goes underneath when it's time to eat!). Enjoy! Photos of home from Sunset Magazine, and of products from Lotta's website. Plus, lots of sales at her website....hmmm...
I think it's a super fun idea to wallpaper a closet...it's truly a way to give yourself a little pick me up when you go to find your clothes for the day. Plus, it's kind of like a fun little secret, because really, who else will ever see it? A great example of designing all the way down to the smallest details...
I know I haven't been posting on here as much lately, as life has become crazy. I'm up to my ears in freelance work, which is a good thing, right?!? Very little time for leisurely internet surfing...
Anyway, thanks for reading, and I'm hoping to get back to my daily posting soon!
Right now I really want a new dining table. I don't have a dining room, but I really don't need one anyway...I'm perfectly happy with my sunny little kitchen spot. BUT, my current table situation is just not cutting it. It's ugly, old (but not old in a good way, old as in I got it from Kmart in college), small, and did I mention ugly? Plus it only has one chair, which is ridiculous, and it's always covered in mail, bike helmets, whatever.
In fact, I'm looking forward to sprucing up my whole dining setting, so I've rounded up some inspiring photos of tables and their environments... enjoy!
ps. As far as the tables themselves, that bottom one is gorgeous...

Lately I've seen a bunch of really striking and interesting examples of product displays, so I've tried to round some up here. The photos of your product can really make or break you, and these are fantastic instances of creativity. The one above is my favorite, from Linda and Harriet.
Really cool textures, patterns, and moods happening here!
Maybe I'm just really into chalkboard stuff lately, but I like this idea of using a framed chalkboard as a headboard...I think using a vintage-y looking one like this helps, as it gives a little extra interest and texture. I'm on a mission for something to serve as a headboard in my own bedroom, so I'm in search of ideas...
btw, when I just went back to the original post to link it, it appeared that people over on Apartment Therapy were extremely NOT into this idea...hmmm, I love it! What do you guys think??

A couple easy and inexpensive diy ideas for hanging photos:
I like the idea of hanging photos from a wire, like on the left in this photo. ( Ignore the arrows, I can't remember what those are supposed to be pointing to...) This is a great diy idea- I'm thinking of doing this in 2 or 3 rows, and using binder clips to hold the photos. (ps, love that bench at the foot of the bed!)
This is a really simple idea as well- Those are pants/skirt hangers! I just saw packs of these at Target in the $1-2 area by the front door...I think I may have to get a few. I received a beautiful art poster for Christmas that is an odd size, and a custom frame just isn't in the budget these days, so I'm thinking of putting something weighted at the bottom and using one of these hangers at the top, at least for a temporary solution! I'll post pictures when I get around to that:) Things have been busy busy lately!!!
These photos are a mystery...sorry (maybe design*sponge??)
