I've played it. You've played it. Everyone we know has played it. Tetris: it's the greatest video game of all time...a game which has inspired numerous home and decorative goods that can fit into any home decor.
Fireplaces are often the focal point of the room, making it the perfect spot to celebrate the season with a little decor update. Mary sent us photos of her creatively composed mantle, along with info on the sources and thinking behind the decorative elements...
If there are cat parents and dog parents, then it follows there are cat kids and dog kids...right? Well, dog kids, this one's for you! Here's a whole lot of lovely stuff with which to fit out your most excellent dog-loving room.
Do you know what your cat or dog most looks forward to in life? Just a whiskers width after a tummy rub and your loving attention – and maybe tied for a walk to the park for canines and laser pointer playtime for felines – is the sound of kibbles being poured or a can of food being opened...
I've been shopping again folks, this time with an eye towards comfortable, clean and casual pieces that are pretty and understated. There's an earthy vibe here, with natural rope and wood materials, offset by a nice dose of color which keeps this room from becoming bland. I know you are dying the see the less expensive versions, so keep on clicking for the alternatives, along with the sources for all these great finds.
I like list-making, and I love post-it notes. Sometimes a spiral notebook is fine for collecting ideas, and sometimes you don't need as much space and want something more fun and inspiring. A few of these 10 notepads even have a kick-in-the-pants message to encourage you to get things done.
I've had this bare wall for more than three years now. I've considered a gallery wall, wallpaper, shelving, a giant metal ampersand, and now I'm ready to commit to a mirror. I have a small space with beautiful natural light and I think a mirror will be a nice addition to reflect that light in the rest of the space. It will also make the place feel more open.
Living in the South, there's not much need to light a fire to keep warm. Instead, fireplaces here are coveted as a focal feature, something to anchor a sitting room. Still, it feels like something's missing when idle fireplaces (or those closed off by landlords) are left empty. Whether vacant by choice or by chance, I love this geeky idea for decorating an unused hearth.
