moved into this house about a year ago, and as you know, it takes time to get settled. Here is the transformation of my living room. I had lots of advice from Mead and Mom...
've noticed a trend of one lamp on long sofa tables or entry tables instead of the traditional two. Now that I think about it, it makes sense. Typically these lamps aren't very apart, why do we need two?
Everyone has trash cans....you may as well have nice ones. Especially if they aren't in a cabinet and are out in the open in your kitchen.
I love my rose gold simple human trash cans.
Subway tile. There's more than one way to lay this out! Which appeals to you most?
I am starting a little photo project in my guest room. Won't it feel homey and welcoming to see family photos on the wall? I think these look best when all the photos are the same size......which can be tricky
You've seen shipping container houses, shipping container stores, shipping container everything. Have you seen a starburst shipping container house? A movie producer just built this unique structure as a vacation home in the Joshua Tree desert.
Hoping to entertain your guests outside but it's too cold? Looking for a cozy feeling but not loving heat lamp poles everywhere?
Don't just decorate your table, what about the rest of your home? If you are hosting Thanksgiving or if you aren't,
I first noticed this on Martha Stewart instagram. I am now seeing it all over. So cute! If you have a fireplace and aren't ready for a winter roaring fire, pile pumpkins inside. Some more inspiration for you below.
You never get a second chance to make a first impression! How's your entry? Need a bit of an update?
Emily Henderson has put together some really cute entry looks. For about $1,000 you can have a new entry!
Which long pillow do you like better-pink or white? The pink is a tad longer and ties into the pink in the rug. The white has a calmer effect but still brings in texture.
Another way to layer your bed: one extra long pillow. Amber Interiors uses this trick, and I recently purchased an extra long pillow for my bed.
Why is this popular? It's easy.
The layered bed is popping up all over. How do you get there? See video below for step by step instructions.
Do you have to use these exact items & sizes? In my opinion, no. Just watch to get some inspiration. How does your bed look
How cute is this girly glam living room? I love the all white, neutral colors, the stunning mirror, the antique chandelier, vintage chest, and the modern art.
How great is this kitchen transformation? From 90's tile to updated classic neutral.
How much more striking is this entrance because of the tile on these stairs? Gorgeous. Imagine if the stairs were the regular white & brown.....it would not be near as welcoming, exciting, or stylish.
Once you start following Amber Interiors, you will be able to recognize her signature style. A few words to describe her style: boho, beachy, layered, textured, California, casual, cozy, elegant, unique & eclectic. Her spaces are thoughtful but also have a lived in feel.
Have room for something at the foot of your bed? Add something to finish the space. Lots of options from benches to stools to dressers to trunks to chairs. Which do you like best?
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?
- Paint everything white (including cabinets & planters)
- Purge: get rid of 534789 knick knacks
- Repurpose what you can
- Purchase big ticket items from consignment
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.
