Lately, you may have noticed a lot of hype in the design & blogging world about STENCILS.  It is a fantastic cost- effective way to get a wallpaper look without spending a ton of money.  Now, don't stop reading if you rent and aren't able to paint your walls.  Stencils can be used on a wide variety of surfaces such as furniture, cabinet fronts, pillows, draperies, canvases (like I did for this project) and the list goes on and on!!

How to Accessorize an End Table or Nightstand

Stuck on how to accessorize an end table or nightstand? 
There are so many ways to style/accessorize a table, and really there are no rules. However, if you aren't sure where to begin below is a list of basic items to use that you can't go wrong with:
*A lamp * Artwork/mirror *Books * Floral/branches



In addition, here are a few more accessorizing tips to get you on your way:
Use items of varied heights to keep the eye moving.  Have something short, something medium, and something tall.  Use stacked books to add height if needed.
Meredith Heron
Layer your accessories.  Don't be afraid to let your lamp cover a portion of the artwork.

Group differently shaped items together.  If everything is square/rectangle it just looks boring.
via
Add pops of color.
Elle Decor
Use unique items that mean something to you, such as something purchased from a trip.  These are great conversation starters, and will add a lot of character to your arrangement.

Project Reveal: Church Foyer Makeover

I apologize for being a little MIA on this blog lately!  Life has been busy lately working with local clients, my family visiting, & working on our newly purchased home.

Recently, I completed a project that I would like to share.  A local church hired me to help them redecorate their foyer area.  They wanted something new, fresh & modern that would go along with the existing paint, flooring, and lighting.

Here are the BEFORE photos:


This is what it looks like now!

A special thanks to Palmetto Street Church of God for allowing me the privilege to help make their foyer shine!

How to NOT make a TV a focal point

I like T.V. just as much as the next person - every Monday night you will find me right in front of it glued to The Bachelor/ette!  Even still, I don't like it when a huge flat screen T.V. is the main attraction in a space.  I don't think a T.V. necessarily needs to be hidden from sight,  just placed somewhat inconspicuously.  There are all sorts of nifty contraptions out there for framing, making it appear as a mirror when off, having a motorized framed piece of art slide over it,etc - all fantastic solutions, but all very expensive solutions. Below are some awesome ways to tastefully place a T.V. in a room without it being the focal point of the room or breaking the bank.

Surround it with art.  All the blacks in the art help to make the black screen not stick out so much. source

Off-set the T.V. on the fireplace wall with another beautiful piece of art work/accessories.  The T.V. is there -with no shame,  just placed with other more interesting decorations that draw the a…
