Emmy Awards weekend continues, and we're paying tribute to the nominees and winners from some of your favorite shows on television. Earlier we featured Hannah Horvath's bedroom from HBO's Girls. Next up is our take on the living room of science nerds Sheldon and Leonard from the Big Bang Theory.
You can't really celebrate color without celebrating that iconic representation of the multiplicity of colors, the rainbow. But while the traditional ROYGBIV rainbow reminds me of unicorns and the 80s, taking a slightly different angle on the rainbow results in some great modern decor — for kids and grown-ups alike.
I have many a fond childhood memory of messy, colorful DIY projects involving handfuls of rubber bands and a perma-stained sink. Tie dye is making its way back around, but this time it's showing a bit more restraint. Ditching the rainbow for monochromatic effects, or using tie dye in small pieces, as an accent, lends a casual, textured look to any room.
When a friend moved into the house he'd just purchased, one of the first things he did was repaint the walls. The colors he picked are sophisticated and subtle, but it must be said that the sage green walls in the living room clash horribly with the teal-ish forest green carpets. It turns out that was completely intentional...
Here's hoping you all had a great Labor Day weekend, and are now ready for the season ahead. It's a great time to get your bedroom in shape and cozy for cold nights ahead. Save your pennies if you like the room above, or click on through to see a less expensive version.
Rentals often come with more than their fair share of terrible flooring, but gross linoleum in the bedrooms is a new personal low. Determined not to sleep in a room with floors unfit for a kitchen but also determined not to break the bank, I've been pricing out huge rugs to cover that mess..
The three-day weekend is here! Although Labor Day usually heralds the start of fall, fight it off for a few more days with these fun and bright projects. Some simply give you inspiration for what to do with a paintbrush, and others are fresh, new ideas for home decor DIYs.
Star prints are a classic, and a great way to add a little pattern to a room, even for the pattern-adverse. You can take it big with a wall dusted in gold stars or keep it small with printed tea towels in the kitchen.
I'm working on my own workspace for this August's Style Cure, so I'm all about desks, task chairs and - of course - decor. Although my style couldn't be more different than this one, I love its shimmery, pretty quality. And I certainly wouldn't kick it out of bed if it showed up late one night with a bottle of champagne and chocolate. (Just kidding. I can be had for Project Runway reruns and a summer roll.)
