Lots of pictures of the house and artsy Q & A with yours truly. Here are some teaser images:
Me and my Man Our Living Room.
The Glam Rock Star Bedroom, with Pugs.
My Art Studio.
There are lots more pics at the link above. Thanks to Jeanne Connolly for the article, and Anthony Camera for the great photos.
Actually, a lot has changed in the house since these photos were taken. (for instance, we are almost done with a total revamp of the living room), and I’ll be posting all the changes and details here soon. Be sure and subscribe to this blog so you won’t miss a thing!
I ran across this delightful, eclectic DIY abode on Apartment Therapy and loved it so much I had to share it with you. It’s chock-full of some great DIY ideas. (See the full Article HERE)
The charming New Orleans home of Valorie Hart is full of personality and great ideas. I know it inspired me…
Great Ideas in the living room: Simple wide black stripes painted on the left wall; Floor-to-ceiling luscious satin drapes (easy to make); and that old 70’s console, brought up to date with a coat of fresh white paint. The bright pops of color in the artwork finish the room perfectly.
More fun art in this room, against that marvelous “ombre” wall (I AM going to steal that idea.) And of course, a static disco ball. (I have 2 of these in my house!)
I love the fabric draping here, an elegant way to dress up a plain wall. (Attention renters!) The fabric cord cover on the lamps is the perfect finishing touch.
I’m a huge fan of Fornasetti, but it’s way out of my price range. This is a fabulous idea! Print and decoupage your own wallpaper!
A great example of making a color work by repeating it around the connecting rooms (Here, orange/red, but this can work with any color.) And you’ve got to love the Union Jack-painted wardrobe!
The outside patio is charming.Using the dark slate grey as a base and adding the pops of chartreuse green (and a little hot pink) works fantastically. I love the light-up ampersand with the plates on the wall.
Yea, I could live here 😉
