How much do you love this charming patio? Emily Henderson did a great job taking an outdoor grassless space that was blah into the shining star of her home. The part that steals the show in my opinion is the gorgeous tile.
No grass? Don't panic! Grass is lovely, but if you don't have it, it's ok.
Get inspired by these grassless backyards.
Yes, you read that correctly. Under $3k? How did they do it?

I have been working on a little bed project. Wanting to add more style, interest, and layers to my bed, I've been playing with different size pillows, blankets, folding back the duvet, etc. Basically every combo you can imagine.
And while I am getting close.....I kept saying "why doesn't my bed look like the pictures?" Thankfully, Emily Henderson reveals why.
Some different kitchen styles for your viewing pleasure. Which one is for you? Which one for your vacation home (if you had one haha).
Think you have a tiny kitchen with no space for seating? What about at the window?
If you live in a small apartment or know a friend who does, look around for a window to create a cozy cafe nook. Add some stools and create a cafe feel.
How to make a tiny kitchen functional & stylish? Add tile & a place to sit.
This kitchen is part of a studio apartment. Normally, the same floor would continue into the kitchen, but these clever Parisian owners added graphic tile with a small pattern. The change in the floor helps distinguish the kitchen.
The manly office is close to the moody office...but without the feminine touches like fur or flowers. Not all manly offices have to be moody....but they usually do have leather.
Going the opposite route of white....we have the dark moody office. I love the mix above of the glam textured light fixture, warmth of tan leather chairs, modern acrylic table, and traditional rug.
Maybe you are inspired by the edgy energetic decor of the new start up offices. Bright colors, modern furniture, and cool art, will make you feel hip and trendy.
A close cousin to the white cheerful girly office is the more muted/understated white minimalist modern office. A bit more serious, a bit more sophisticated.
You'll notice more natural/neutral colors incorporated instead of the bright pops.
Incorporate clean lines, mid-century modern, nothing too frilly. When in doubt, less is more.
Think you don't have room for a home office? Think again! Do you have an attic? A basement? A garage? A closet? A backyard? Under the stairs?
Farmhouse office is another style. Do you work in wine country? Are you drawn to shabby chic or vintage or flea market finds? Do you wish you lived in Provence? You may like this style!
It's that time of year again! May, sunshine, springtime, and the SF Decorator Showcase.
If you don't live in SF, you probably have something similar in your town. Once a year, they choose a home and choose the top decorators in the area to each design one room

How amazing is this colorful cheerful bohemian backyard? I love it!
Thanks to Emily Henderson for sharing photos of a baby shower in Texas.
Instead of a Man Cave or a She Shed.....what about a Backyard Bar Shed? Just in time for summer. What do you think? Would this look cute in your backyard for your next BBQ?
Your entry. Your foyer. Your mudroom. It is your first chance to make an impression on your guests. What is that impression?
Sprucing up your entry can be a fun project as it is a small space. It only takes a few things to freshen it up.
Thanks to Studio McGee for posting this informative photo and spot on rules for curtains. Don't these look elegant and expensive? Makes me realize I need to hang mine even higher and possibly get some rings.
Phone Book Charger makes a clever gift for almost anyone! Men, women, any age. Don't you hate having those cords all over your house? Don't you hate when your phone is about to die and you can't find your charger?
How about something nice for the home?
Also from SF area companies: Hudson Grace, Nuraxi, and Serena & Lily.
Other options for your attic? Playroom, movie room, library, hang out lounge, ..... get creative!
What if you turned your attic or your triangle ceiling room into a bathroom? These photos demonstrate it's possible.
Can you transform your attic into a guest room? Guests don't need a ton of space. Just a place to sleep and read their book. Sometimes small feels cozy & welcoming
Could you use your attic space for a bedroom? Ideas show incorporating wood for a cozy cabin feel. Or lots of white & skylights for a more bright modern open feel.
What if you used your attic for a home office? A quiet place to get away. Whether it's working
Your favorite room you don't know you have......your attic! Do you use your attic for storage space? Clean that stuff out and use it for something more exciting!
