How to: Make Stylish, Painterly Typographic Wall Art

By: Jeran Apr 09, 2015

I love a large marquee letter in home decor.  It's a great way to personalize your space without monogramming all your guest towels.  Any chance to hang something one your walls that's not in a neat rectangular frame is a win in my book.  This marquee letter got a trendy makeover by painting the whole thing like a modern, abstract piece of art.  It's a fun way to add color and pattern to any room.

Our Makeover: A Modern Boy's Bedroom With A Dash of Adventure

By: Alicia Mar 28, 2015
Little Adventurer Boy's Room Makeover!

Yesterday, we told you all about our plans to make over our little boy's bedroom. Before we get to the big reveal, let's do a mini recap. 

We moved into the Curbly House when our son was two weeks old. Because we were insane people who purchased, gutted, moved into, and attempted to furnish and decorate a whole house with a brand new baby, his room was left looking fairly generic.

By: Meghan and al Mar 11, 2015

When we found out we were having a baby boy, my vision of a neutral nursery of ivories and golds came to a crashing halt as I suddenly wanted the room to feel very boy like- with strong greens and dark blues and unmistakably boyish features. So I changed the natural taupe wallpaper to the hunter green safari, and charged on.Continue Reading

What's the Best Bottle Cutter on the Market? We Find Out

By: Diy maven Feb 16, 2015

Photo: DIY Maven

Four years ago, I threw out the question: "What is the best bottle cutter on the market?" A lot of readers weighed in. Some gave recommendations, others just wanted a definitive answer, which is what I wanted. Finally, FINALLY, we decided to get to the bottom of the bottle cutter question and have a product shoot out between four popular models. Our competition has not been without a little drama, as one of the bottle cutter makers has, apparently, gone out of business since the inception of this review. That being the Bindu Studio's Bottle Cutter. We've decided to leave the Bindu in the review just in case some of you stumble upon one secondhand. That being said, it's time to introduce each of our competitorsContinue Reading

There's something so fun about a functional letterform, isn't there? Or maybe it's just the typography nerd in me. But nonetheless, you have to admit that storing cotton balls inside of an ampersand is more fun than storing them in a plain old glass jar.

I was inspired to make typographic storage containers after seeing ones made from cookie cutters on Pinterest (from Willowday). Instead of using cookie cutters, I simply used clay, a favorite font, and a steady hand!
