Remember the post about the couple that turned a church into a home? Well, that makeover has some serious competition with these remakes. First up is a 1930's church located in Rotterdam, which
My big how-to video will be posted on Thursday and I'm so excited to share it with you. Until then, I personally invite you to hit me with you nesting dilemmas. Are there any home decor issues you need a little helping hand with? I'd love to hear and will answer your questions next week.
Feel free to ask about a particular room, color scheme, shopping advice, etc. We'd love to see a photo of the space in question, so please...
If all of this talk of fall entertaining drives you to drink, never fear, that's all you really need to be a great host. Building a stylish & chic bar can be your biggest asset during the cold and cozy seasons. Nothing welcomes someone into your home more than a freshly-poured drink on the rocks in a classic highball glass.
I've assembled most of our barware from Etsy. Vintage highballs, drinks carts and ice buckets that would fit nicely in Don Draper's office create an air of elegance we're sorely missing these days. I say we bring the classic five o'clock cocktail hour back with finds like these.
I-Beam's Pallet House is indeed made out of shipping pallets. The original design was to provide temporary housing for refugees, however the same building concept could make very cool garden sheds and backyard
Le Papier Studio makes modern and elegant silhouette creations, and recently, owner Vana Chupp upgraded from working at home to a brand new studio and office space. And from the looks of it, she totally nailed it.
There are homes and then there are apartments. I'm not talking a yard versus non-yard scenario here. I'm talking about that comforting feeling of home versus that place in which you sleep, eat and store your stuff. Making your apartment feel like the former can be done simply and inexpensively. Here are
These are the sorts of the things that make humankind drool...

Apparently, it can be done. From Materialicious: "HOME humidifiers are appearing with many new features and stylish designs as seen by the seven shown on this link. It's important to maintain a healthy balance of moisture and the hot dry air found in most homes during the winter months. The humidifier pictured is by Rocca."
I post not because I am completely enamored with the design, though I am. I'm more interested in the trend over the last...

You gotta love that MoMA store: always beautiful, and often useful.
This Light Switch Rack offers the helpful inbox/outbox approach to home organization (albeit on a small scale) at a no-new-holes-in-your-wall cost. New from designer Paul Koh, just "Easily install this rack over your existing light switch cover near the door. The two knobs function as key hooks, and a convenient mail holder at the top reminds you to take the mail with you on your way out. Made of powder-coated aluminum."
I've seen a few over the years: homes with the facade flipped, roofs in the ground, patios pointed to the skies; though, inside, things are as usual, and perfectly liveable for those of us suffering from gravity.
But this new installation in Germany is something different all together: the floors are in the air, tables hang from above, and the toilets flush towards the heavens...
Regardless of your interior style, you've gots to be good to show off your gear...and that means brighten it up. And with the days getting shorter, you gotta do your best to keep your space light and airy. Erin says: "As the evenings are turning darker earlier here in the Midwest, I'm craving every last bit of sunlight I can muster up. I suppose I have two options: Hop a flight to California and bask in the bright, sunny rays... or I can make...
For those city folks who don't know what a silo is, it's a large, usually cylindrical structure used to store silage. What's silage? Stuff ruminators eat. What are ruminators? I'll let you chew on that for a while. However, this particular silo serves a different purpose altogether.

A couple in Kyloe, Northumberland bought a historical church and Curblied it up. Big time. They chose to restore it rather than renovate it, which would have been much cheaper. As it is, the church maintains its churchiness but with a homey interior. (The only thing that kinda creeps me out is the cemetery in the front yard.) Here's a few pics, but you can see more on this page.
Regine at WeMakeMoneyNotArt writes,
"Encastrable is a series of guerrilla art residencies held inside gardening and DIY megastores in the Paris area... At no cost at all, the young artists have at their disposal a huge array of material that they can grab, move, superimpose, and organize onto temporary installations and sculptures. Authorization of the manager of the establishment is obviously never requested."
No matter how I try to not pick up my office for work, I simply can't be productive in a chaotic space.

Tucked in the Hollywood Hills, this 7000 square foot piece of architectural splendor, which was designed and built by Temple Home, is not only drop-dead gorgeous it's really, really smart. Packed to the rafters with top-end technology, it features 'a CinemaScope theater, 7.1-channel surround-sound, intricate TV concealment,[and] extensive automation' among other things. No word on how much moo-la it would fetch in the open market, but, as they...

When a certain big Swedish apparel retailer decided to offer a home collection including a hand drawn looking button pillow, it started my wheels turning. It looked completely DIY-able and the collection isn't available in the United States so, what the heck. Here is a step-by-step
