Halloween Preview

Feeling autumn means feeling Halloween…and bringing out the pumpkin decorations is on my list. Came across these steps on Pinterest just now. I love them! I would have to guess that they are wall stickers. What a great idea! Too bad my steps at home are carpeted. 🙁

So love, love this interior space! Brilliant!

Kids’ Room Design – Girls!

Making a girl’s room into a fun, playful environment that she’ll love can be a perplexing task. Believe me, I’ve been through it with two of my own. And I wish I went with some of these design options, like this room with fairy-tale quality to it.  The massive crib of course can be easy changed to a day bed, of twin bed. Love the color choices in this room, subtle yet bright.

So letting your kids go this far may be difficult but consider how easy it is to be creative using wall stickers.  Your child’s favorite cartoon characters can be the crazy and fun way to allow her to express herself.  These stickers are affordable and easy to place and remover.

Don’t forger color is a child’s room. This stylish kid’s room features an unusual palette of green and sherbet orange…quite unique.

The pink girl’s room is a thing of the past, well, maybe not completely, but this subtle color palette of pink, pale green, and white give this space a fresh and stylish feel, so beyond the pink comforter and curtains.

But if you must think pink, this room creation in light red painted walls and furniture is a perfect tween expression.  Love the modern feel and the built in look of the desk and drawers which make this small space pretty as well as functional.

Creative Bookshelves

If you’re anything like me, when you move into your new apartment one of the main things you have to content with are the numerous and bicep inducing heavy boxes of books that you have to move.  And then comes the most heart stopping question:  Where will I put them?

If your new apartment doesn’t have built-in books shelves, like this one in a Soho loft, then you may face some decisions on how to design a nice space to store your books, CDs, and DVDs.  I scouted around and found some lovely options that are both creative and expressive.  A lot of shelf design options can be built yourself, if you have some wood working skills, but otherwise going for a unique shelf in your living space can work as a storage area as well as an artistic feature.

This bookshelf unit, believe it or not, is made of cardboard, as well as the following one:

I couldn’t help but be inspired by this circular design, especially with the spiral working in it. And, they are environmentally friendly. Design by Giles Miller who makes unique cardboard products.

Don’t forget to look for the unusual.  This Quasi-hexagonal bookcase is a great example of design and modern thinking.  I love the way the books kind of fall into a mad-cap arrangement in these odd shaped spaces, giving the piece a neat yet artistic feel. This bookcase was designed by Sean Yoo and is made of polypropylene – uh, the stuff that the bumper of your car is made of, which makes this book shelf quite durable and ready for action.

Shelving with a modern vibe: These Tangram Bookshelves come in 7 pieces that you can arrange in your design preference.  Bring your imagination to the table, or in this case the wall! Here, I like what looks like a cat in the upper right, and the tie figure in the lower right (blue).  The top left looks like a waiter to me… check out Like Cool for info on these shelves.
