By: Capreek Nov 19, 2014

Nestled near the base of the Catskill Mountains in New York, you'll find what can arguably be described as the world's most colorful home. A labor of love, every visible surface of this 1840s home has been given a coat of paint by artist Kat O'Sullivan (and a group of very supportive friends). The result is a structure that seemingly spans the entire perceivable color spectrum.     Continue Reading

Makeover: A Dark and Gloomy Office To Become A Bright Geometric Nursery

By: Lexy.b.ward Nov 13, 2014

About 6 months before our daughter was born, we moved into a new town home. The walls were covered with dark brown, red, and beige paint, but it had serious potential to become a bright and cozy space. It only had windows on the ends, so we wanted to paint every room a bright grey or white to help give off as much natural light as possible. 

We set our sights on the 2nd floor office to become the nursery. It was the tiniestContinue Reading

A friend of mine and her husband bought a house last year and have been adding decorative touches since they moved in.

Before we get to the room's transformation, I'm sharing the before pictures, so you can get a better idea of where we started. Tomorrow, I'll be back with the room's reveal.Continue Reading

I can't even.     Continue Reading
