Vibrant and juicy, this cheerful orange, might be the perfect antidote for the blues--the brain kind AND the decor kind. It was picked for its 'element of
As they say, coziness is next to godliness. (Wait? Is that not what they say?) This time of year I like nothing better than a stout evergreen tree (complete with kitschy ornaments and twinkle lights), something toasty sweet baking in the oven, Sufjan Stevens' Christmas album, and a free Saturday to enjoy it all with my husband.
No sir, I don't think white walls are boring... they are merely just a canvas for something awesome!
I am a big fan of stark white walls filled with colorful collages of artwork. I appreciate it in my own home as well as others. For me they evoke the feeling of a light and airy space and I love pops of color scattered throughout. Today I was crafting with a friend who has a fab little bungalow in the Venice Canals part of LA and she also loves her bright white walls... And her place still has lots of personality from the interesting and colorful artwork and accessories throughout.
Hello! I finished this PB knockoff painting yesterday. Finally. This started out as a “simple” project. Or that’s what I thought.
Can someone please tell me why things that should be easy turn out complicated and things that are complex wind up pretty simple? Or is it just me?
Ok, so I made a few changes from PB’s Green Sentiment rug. Like, I didn’t paint a rug; I painted a hanging canvas. Not that I didn’t want a rug. I...
The First Family will be hosting trick-or-treaters again this year at the White House. Check out the video below to see the preparations. There's some GREAT decor ideas, like the gourd
It's easy to get excited about furniture. And it's plenty fun to explore paint colors, wall art options, and accessories. After all, those are what go into a room's design, right?
Well, yeah. That's part of it. But don't forget those other two sides of the space - the ceiling, and the floor. Of course, a room defining floor piece can often cost significantly more than that can of paint or awesome framed print. Like, a whole lot more.
Unless, of course, you take Holly's advice, and transform the whole space for a cool $50.
This lake home is open and airy. Both are acheived with the help of its color pallette, which is white and white and more white. Sounds like a lot of white, right? It is, but it also lends a lovely and inviting continuity.
Some of the coolest things found in our (still relatively) new Target Center here in Minneapolis are the dual flush toilets in the rest rooms. (Yes, such things thrill me.) Dual-flush toilets are gaining popularity in residential applications as well. They can cost anywhere from a couple hundred bucks to a couple thousand, so swapping out your old water guzzler to a dual-flush may be cost
Curbliers, it's time to get down with 'the green team'! Whether you're remodeling, starting a new build, or just like daydreaming about gorgeous kitchens, we've rounded up our five favorite eco-friendly building materials. Ready to dream green? Let's go!
Over at ManMade, Chris has a sweet tutorial on making hip, colorful typographic string art:
It's easy enough to do with your kids, and cool-looking enough to actually hang on the wall.
Green cleaning products don't always have to come from your local "Green" grocer. My older sister is a good example of this-- she makes a lot of her cleaning solutions and is in love with the result she gets, both by way of a fresh, clean house and by saving money. Want a few home-made cleaning recipes?
Hey, it's no secret that we harbor a love for the color purple here at Curbly. From painted furniture, amazing living rooms, and "purple people eaters", we've made our infatuation with the royal hue known. But, as with any color, there are good ways and bad ways to use it.
I learned a long time ago how to dye fabric using fruits and vegetables (thanks to my mom and her degree in "3D textiles": she would dye all her own materials and make sculptures from resin-saturated fabrics... I know, right!?). Alas, the wisdom she bestowed upon me escaped my "vault of knowledge" along with a great many other things over the years. Fortunately, the Internet exists. And extra fortunately, someone decided to show us all how it's done! Ready to start putting those groceries to new use?
We've shared quite a few mason jar projects here on Curbly (did you see our roundup of 15 awesome uses for mason jars?) and we've even highlighted a purchasable sun jar, too. Of course, it couldn't be too long before we found a DIYable version, right? Well, at least not if the industrious people of the Internet have their way. So, if you haven't yet exhausted your supply of jars from all those other rad projects and are looking for a fun, eco-friendly lighting solution, read on!
