The Curbly House: Ayla's Cozy Room Reveal

By: Alicia Feb 22, 2013

Ayla's bedroom reveal
Last year was full of changes for our family, and in particular for my daughter. A new house, a new brother, and a new pre-school. That's why, when I started thinking about how to design her new room in the Curbly House, I wanted it to be perfect, inspiring, cozy, and hers. The day we moved in, Ayla's room was the most done room in the house, and to date, it's the only done room in the house.

This week, Curbly is excited to be teaming up with Storey Publishing to share original how-to projects from the newly released PlyDesign: 73 Distinct Projects in Plywood (and Other Sheet Goods) by Phillip Schmidt.
 

Groovy Headboard...as in lots of grooves, see? It was the express intention of the designers of this piece not to have a monolithic hulk of a headboard, so they decorated it with negative space. The grooves also highlight the edge strata of the plywood, adding depth and interest that change with your viewing angle. And if you really want to get groovy, you can install some hidden lighting in the back (letting the glow play through the slats or throwing bars of light onto… Continue Reading

Have you noticed an influx of projects using rope these days? I have. So many, in fact, I felt I need to cull through them and put together a roundup of some that caught my eye.
