The “Mountain Mural” Bedroom MakeoverDesign Ideas
Makeover by: Pam Lostracco, owner of Pam Lostracco Custom Designed Murals Location: Toronto, Canada Last spring, I started envisioning how my artwork would look at a larger size.

Not only did it transform the atmosphere in the whole room but my entire business plan, too!

Easy & All Natural Wallpaper Removal Tip: Use Vinegar and Hot WaterDesign Ideas
Over the holidays, I finally started on the spare bedroom in my Mom’s house. It has not seen any decorating love since the 80’s, and it was time to strip the wallpaper and give the walls a fresh coat of paint. I was a little apprehensive because I had never removed wallpaper before, but I soon realized it was more tedious than difficult. I also learned that it was a job that could be made easier with our favorite friend: white vinegar.

Real Life Rental Challenge: How One Couple Tackled a Dingy Carpeted StaircaseHome Projects
Almost a year ago, my husband and I moved back to our hometown of Long Beach, CA. We found a gorgeous two bedroom 1930s apartment in our favorite neighborhood.

It’s the only carpeted, unpainted space in the entire home, and the first thing you see when you arrive.

11 Ways to Add Wallpaper to Your Kitchen, from a Little to a LotHome Projects
Perhaps owing to less-than-pleasant memories from the ’80s of growing up in homes full of chintzy florals and duck borders, Americans have been shy about wallpaper for a long, long time. Recently the pendulum has swung back a bit, helped in no small part by the appearance of some very badass prints. But wallpaper in the kitchen is still a bit of a tall order, because I think we tend to be a bit more conservative with the design of a kitchen than say, a powder room.

Is Paintable, Removable Wallpaper Too Good to Be True?Home Projects
Certain landlords, and almost all dorms, have strict rules against painting the walls, which is a major bummer if you love color. So imagine my excitement when I learned about removable, paintable wallpaper — I shouted “hallelujah” and quickly ordered some to find out if it was the answer to all our rental wishes and dreams. So, is this product too good to be true? One thing to note is that it took awhile to find actual removable paintable wallpaper.

Traditional toile, like the wallpaper that covered the walls of our bathroom in the house where I grew up, features scenes of provincial life: shepherds driving sheep, lovers meeting beneath trees.
