I am all about finding new things to use on my walls as art. I get bored with the same old stuff. Here are some great ideas for unique wall art for those of you who are like me.
If you can’t tell the picture above is a picture of coffee filters as art!! Cool huh!
Ruffles are everywhere, on everything! It seems everything is being inspired by a girly touch, and nothing is being left undone. It is all about the feminine details right now and I love it!! A tip for you trend followers, add embellishment to everything you can get your hands on. Whether it be ruffles, flowers, pleats, ribbon, sparkle…just add something! Can it be too much? I say, “What is TOO MUCH??”

The Kips Bay Decorator Show House opened April 17th. Here are some shots from inside the house. What are your thought? I am not in love with all of the rooms. My favorite is Charlotte Moss’s room at the very bottom. She used fabric from Michael Devine’s fabric collection. Visit his blog “the devine life” to learn more about him and see his fantastic work. See the New York Times website for more information about the designers and their rooms. Hope your enjoy the pictures, leave me some comments about which ones you like and don’t like.

I love wallpaper, any space, anytime. Below are some of the most beautiful wallpapers out n’about today. My wallpaper tips: 1. Don’t hang your grandmothers wallpaper. For goodness sake please research the latest wallpaper fashions before selecting. 2. Don’t be afraid of large patterns. The larger the better. The key is to choose a wallpaper that has a lot of open negative space, this determines the “busyness” of wallpaper, not the size of the pattern. 3. Make sure you know what you are doing, if you want to hang it yourself, otherwise you can make expensive mistakes. 4. If you don’t have the money to wallpaper your entire room, just do one accent wall, or use large picture frames to frame wallpaper and hang it on the wall, less commitment for you commitmentphobes out there. 5. JUST USE IT!
I love using wallpaper for other uses than just on the walls.
Frame wallpaper as artwork, an inexpensive way to create beautiful art.
Wallpapering old furniture to create an updated look is a very creative and inexpensive way to recycle those goodwill finds.
Wallpapering the inside of bookshelves gives a punch of color and showcases your beautiful books and accessories.
Isn’t this the prettiest baby crib you have ever seen! So, right up my alley.
Everywhere you look, animal print is popping up. From very traditional to very modern homes, you see bits of animal print splashed here and there. When used properly animal print a sophisticated element of design that can be used in any home. My suggestion is, keep it simple, and buy quality fabrics (not the ones that are going to make your beautiful room look like a bachelor pad).
I love the “Twilight” saga and the “Twilight” movie. This spread from In Style magazine is beautiful, so I just had to include it. This is a great representation of how to mix a beautiful zebra rug in with traditional design elements.
I have been seeing zebra rugs everywhere. I love this graphic element of style. Of course, they do make fake zebra rugs that are animal friendly. I would suggest those, and they are more economical.
