Black and White Bedrooms

Posted by Alyssa on October 14, 2018

I love black and white rooms. The simplicity and cleanliness that comes from only using those two colors creates a calm, peaceful space. If you are afraid that only using black and white in your room will make the space feel boring or bland, don’t worry! The sharp contrast of the two colors in and of itself creates interest, and you can always add pops of color if you feel like something is missing.

If you’re wanting to change up a room in your house, check out some of these pictures for inspiration. You might just want to have a black and white room in your house.

How to Hang Artwork At the Right Height

Posted by Andie on October 5, 2018

One of the most common design mistakes out there, that I see all the time, is hanging artwork way too high on the wall.  It's easy to do!  I'd say the majority of the population is guilty of this (I have been, too!).  Most homes in America are full of artwork that would look a lot better if it was rehung about 6-12 inches lower on the wall.  Here are a few tips to help you make sure your art is hung at the right height....

1. Hang your artwork at eye level
This can usually easily be done, by measuring 55-60 inches from the floor, and having that spot be at the center of where your painting or gallery wall is hung.  Resist the impulse to feel like you need to cover the entire wall.  It's okay if there is empty space above the art up to the ceiling- that means you are probably hanging your art at the proper level.

2. Close the gap between your artwork and furniture
Instinct might tell you to put a couple of feet between the top of your sofa and the bottom of a painting, but don't trust it!  If you are hanging a piece of art above a sofa or a console table, the bottom of the frame should only be 4-6 inches above the sofa.  Closer together looks so much better!

Honey & Lemon Tea Recipe

Posted by Andie on September 26, 2018

We've been pounded at our house for the past week with a horrible cold.  I'm blaming it on my kids being back in school! Every single person in the family has it. My kids and husband are still functioning semi-normally, but I'm 36 weeks pregnant and this viurs is KILLING me.  I don't remember the last time I felt this awful!  Aside from doing the normal things like drinking lots of water, loading up on vitamin C, and using essential oils, the thing that really seems to be saving me is my honey & lemon tea.  I am basically drinking this stuff all day, every day.  Growing up, my mom used to make this for us when we got sick.  It's so simple to throw together, but it really does work wonders.....

Understanding Light Bulbs

Posted by Andie on September 20, 2018

Lighting- both natural & artificial, is everything when it comes to interior design!  First and foremost, for the obvious reason of allowing us to see and appreciate color, patterns and discerning elements of design.   In addition, lighting can also play a huge role in creating a certian ambiance or mood for a space.  It's definitely not a factor you want to ignore!

Natural light, or light from the sun, is pretty self explanatory.  But when it comes to artificial light, things get a tad more complicated.  Nowdays, there are so many different kinds & types of light bulbs, and they all have different strengths and weaknesses.  It can be confusing to remember all of it!  Below are several awesome lighting guides to help you keep it all straight.  You'll learn about lumens vs. watts, color temperature, and light bulb types.  I actually couldn't believe how much I learned from these, and hope you will too!
