Decorating With Salvage!

A chat with Mary Anne Carter of Second Use, Seattle

My favorite part of any project is the shopping part.  Even a new sport.  Once I’ve purchased the cute new outfit and the equipment I’m pretty much done.    Ooooh, those weights come in colors?  And then I lose interest.

So when I learned about upcycling (see one of my previous blog posts) I was excited about the shopping element.  I’m always trying to bring things into the house and my family is always trying to get rid of them.

I hurried (more…)

Five Clever Home Decor Ideas to Try Right Now

And All of Them are Budget-Friendly!

We just became empty-nesters.  After complaining about how quiet the house was without a roomful of teenagers at all hours of the day and night, I realized that this was my opportunity to do some redecorating and exchange the kid clutter for some of those carefully curated chic home decor ideas I’ve been considering for a long time.  As no one would ever consider my home curated, chic or encompassing any “decor ideas” I have nothing to lose.

Solve The Home Office/Guest Room Dilemma

Solutions Revealed: My Favorite Organizer On The Home Office/Guest Room

I met Lauren, of Casual Uncluttering, at a business meeting a few years ago.  She introduced herself as an organizer and I immediately thought, “I’m never letting her into my house.”

Fast forward a week.  Favorite cousins, of the beautifully-decorated-and-chic-home (more…)

Kids and Furniture: Can this Relationship Be Saved?

One Mom’s Kid-Generated Furniture Mishaps and How to Avoid Them

For decades, starting in 1953, The Ladies’ Home Journal ran a feature called “Can This Marriage Be Saved?” A troubled relationship was described by the wife, and then the husband was allowed to vent, and finally the therapist announced what was needed to save the marriage. My mother subscribed to the magazine and I remember reading this column as a child, wondering how men and women ever managed to live together. It was quite alarming.

How Upcycling Can Add Pizzazz to Your Home Decor

My good buddy, Leslie, who spent years working in the home staging industry suggested I do a blog post on upcycling.  I told her that was a great idea!  Then I quickly went home to google “upcycling.”

The first post I found was about repurposing toilet paper rolls to store things in.

Ewwwww.  Not what I was thinking.

But I kept going on the research, figuring that I could get creative, be politically correct and save the planet all at the same time by learning how to upcycle.

My home is 100 years old this year! And although I love the vintage detail and old-world charm, I’m not thrilled with the some of the compact rooms we live and entertain in. Over time, I’ve found a few furniture items that help us get the most from our small spaces. The key is to find furniture that can do double duty, or be stored away easily.

Top Five Factors When Selecting a Sleeper Sofa

When choosing a new sleeper sofa for your home, keep in mind the following five factors:

1. Style

Sleeper Sofas come in a wide array of styles.

Style is a personal preference. Some of us like to be bold and standout. Others would rather remain subtle and subdued. What style speaks to you? Are you looking for something contemporary with a low profile? Or do you prefer something more traditional? Maybe you know exactly what you’re looking for. Does an overstuffed, rolled arm, skirted loveseat speak to you? Great!  Style is very much a personal (more…)
