My "craft room" consists of piles and boxes of various materials scattered between several rooms, tucked into drawers and closets in a sad attempt at being organized.

Not every before needs to be goofy. Some are just empty rooms. Case in point: This light-filled, open-concept space was in dire need of some furnishings. Although it's now filled, it has kept its airy feel
Move over beige! Today we're welcoming bold, energizing colors with open arms--and giving neutrals the boot. We've rounded up ten hue-happy bedrooms that are sure to inspire the colorholic in all of us!
House to Home refers to these rooms as monochrome probably because it sounds prettier than grayscale, but my Nikon would interpret them as the latter. My eyes, however, interpret them gorgeous. Although, I'm wondering if after living in them for a while, I'd start to feel like I was living in a more posh-y version of The Dick Van Dyke Show. What do you think? Does grayscale work for you or is the lack of color off-putting? If you answered 'yes' to the first part of
I can safely say that I have never, ever seen a tractor in a 'before' picture of a room makeover...until today, that is. Los Angeles interior designer Shirry Dolgin nixed the farm equipment
House & Home's senior design editor, Cameron Macneil shares his entry makeover in this week's H&H Online TV. However, the episode is loaded with other inspirational tips and images too, as H&H editors take us through their favorites. To watch
Unless you've been living under a rock, you've probably noticed the wool felt craze that's been going on the last year or two. People are using it to make pretty much everything imaginable, from simple circular coasters to laser-cut rugs and now: geometric wall tiles!
Yes, makeovers plural! And yes, they're all ultimate! Don't believe me? Read on.
These playroom makeovers are all the work of Minor Details, a design firm focused solely on creating awesome spaces for kids. A peek through their portfolio was enough to make me want a playroom of my own, that's for sure! Check out more of their work here and let me know what you think!
P.S. Minor Details also has a pretty sweet blog focused on mod toys, furniture, etc. for kids!
Ahhh, there's nothing quite like a good kitchen makeover. Especially when the "before" is, well, kinda scary. Not to worry, though. It'll be safe to uncover your eyes in 3, 2, 1...
Is there anything hotter in interior design right now than gallery walls?? And the more art the better, it appears. Just take a look at these babies. Skimpy of art, they are NOT.

This $4.5 million Beverly Hills home was languishing on the market, so a makeover seemed necessary. Before, the bedroom pictured above was big but drab. Now it's bright and bold and far from boring.
This basement renovation took a little over a year, but I'm willing to bet the "after" is what little kids' dreams are made of!
Jessica Levitt, a designer, crafter, and blogger, turned this drab and dark basement into a playroom fantasty for her brother-in-law's three children. I don't know about you, but I would have LOVED this space as a kid! Heck, I even love it now.

The before photo is rather grim, but believe me when I tell you that the after will make you want to party all night long!
It's April 1st and that means the official kick off of Modern Month here at the Curb. (No foolin'.) To start us off right, I thought I'd round up a bunch images of the quintessential modern coffee table from Isamu Noguchi in their natural habitats. Enjoy!
I'm a sucker for getting a glimpse inside the homes of the rich and famous, so when I stumbled upon this post on The Lennoxx, I had to stop and gawk.

Trends are a curious thing, so when I ran across this set of images from the book Good Decorating and Home Improvement, I couldn't help but laugh. We're in a phase again where all things Mid-Century are cool (no complaints here), but it's clear that wasn't the case when this book was published!
A self-described design enthusiast, Nancy Marcus Gueret managed to achieve what I would call a Regency style family room makeover that will knock your socks off. It's no wonder her friends and family enlist her help with their own decorating dilemmas. Actually, she's done a multiple room makeover job that's as good as any decorator I've ever seen.
When so many people are challenged with decorating small spaces, it seems odd that there are those who struggle with decorating their great big tall walls. Luckily, there are more ways to capture and utilize that space than hanging a giant quilt way up there.(Don't you love those three poufs?)
