I'd been looking for a creative way to store my large collection of costume jewelry for ages. But I had many criteria... it had to fit all of my jewelry yet be appropriate for a small space, have a clean, contemporary sort of feel, and it couldn't be too expensive either. And I finally found it. At IKEA. Read on to check out my ultimate jewelry storage solution.
It's been longer than I'd like to admit (give or take a year or two) that we've gone without a headboard. Our bed is from IKEA and we chose a model that was sans headboard hoping to make one of our own. Fast forward two years. I'm still searching the web for ideas and this one is quite interesting! What do you think!?!
I don't know about you, but I'm getting sick of winter already. All I want to do is curl up and read a good book underneath a warm fuzzy blanket. Preferably in one of these ten impossibly cozy reading nooks.

Forget using your hand to make a turkey--that was so last century. Now use that incredibly useful appendage to explore drawing in 3-D. The process is much simpler than you might imagine, but the outcome is kinda mind-blowing, especially when considering all it takes to do itContinue Reading
I've been on the hunt for a new headboard and this diy project by Carrie Waller stopped me in my tracks. I've been drooling ever since I found out that a piece so beautiful was handmade! And while the steps require a bit of skill and a few tools, the results are well worth the effort. Continue Reading
This sequin-lined lampshade from DaWanda is like a perpetual celebration of New Year's Eve. Available in a variety of sequin colors, the lampshade clocks in at 86.90 Euros (about $106 US), but it looks like the maker doesn't ship to the US. What's a Yankee to do? Make one, of course.

This bedroom began as a plain, beige box of a space. No personality. But with the addition of a number of beautiful new wall treatments and lots of layered textiles, it was transformed into a gorgeous, welcoming master bedroom.
