Have you shopped for a mattress lately? It can be so confusing. Which one is best for a back sleeper or a side sleeper? Can you try out the mattresses that are only available online? Which one is best? Is organic really worth the price? We're not laying down on the job, or well for this one, we might be. Anita is shopping for a new mattress, and she has done a lot of research.
Allow your space to continuously change—as your life does. "Remember that your home should always be evolving, just as you are," says Kelly Framel, creative director, stylist and founder of online magazine The Glamourai. "I am constantly picking up new treasures on my travels. Your nest should always be a place of comfort and inspiration, and it's a constant work in progress."
A stacked fieldstone fireplace takes center stage in this family room. Rather than just a sheer wall of stone, the exposed chimney is designed with a central recess for artwork, along with tapered edges on either side, to keep it from appearing too overpowering. Sconces mounted directly to the stone are an attractive way to shed plenty of light on the antique timber mantel.
Family photographs instantly add warmth and personality to your home. Take them out of the attic, off your computer, or out of the infrequently viewed albums on your bookshelves, and enjoy them every day. Pick a wall, corner, or entire room. If your chosen spot already has picture molding (found in many older homes), your job will be easy. If not, adding new molding is not that complicated.
Speaking of which, the Fab Five’s resident design guru Bobby Berk has a great decor tip that I think is so smart. It addresses what must be one of the most common decor mistakes that people make! And when I talk about “decor mistakes,” I’m not talking about questionable color schemes or about having an odd taste in wall art. I’m talking about those small decor choices that end up having an unintended and negative effect on the room as a whole. These sorts of mistakes are so easy to make, because you may not even know what the issue is in the first place! And the decor mistake I want to talk about today fits that description perfectly.

To soften the modern edge of stainless steel, decorator Alisa Bloom put a traditional spin on the kitchen cabinetry of her 1920s Chicago penthouse with brass inlays. With the help of a local hardware maker, she even designed her own hinges and drawer pulls. “I would never go into a store and just buy something,” she says. “It’s all about the process and the hunt."

I am in the purging and organizing mode right now, are you?  The holidays are over, it’s a new year, fresh start.  Today, I am going to share how I organize my makeup draw with some items I found at the Dollar Tree.  Not only did I organize my drawer, but my daughter’s too.  She fell in love with how mine was so we organized her makeup drawer with the same items.  Let’s get started organizing my makeup drawer.
I disagree – but have no business doing so because I only have shutters. So I will tell you what I think the biggest problem – and one that I want to change in other people’s homes every time I see it is…….hang your pictures correctly! You know when they are right if standing up you are looking at the CENTER of the picture. And BTW there is no reason you can’t hang a picture below the window casing…..looks great in a bedroom.
