Here is a lovely post by Local Milk that is actually a great inspiration for the upcoming holiday of Easter! Or for any tablescapes in the near future for your home. Make sure to look at every image because it is stunning!

DIY’s are bookmarked a great deal on my computer, so I was so excited when I found this DIY by Elle Decor. It showcases three really interesting headboards that you can make! My personal favorite is the marbleized headboard.

Lonney has given a challenge for those who admire architecture and movies. They have a fun quiz to take, but more importantly they have my ultimate dream home on the quiz. I am in love, and have been since the movie came out, with the Father of the Bride home. If I lived in that home for the rest of my life and didn’t leave I would be so content. It is a beautiful home!

When creating your home details can be everything. Earnest shared how important packaging can be, which I have always believed so it is so good to hear it from someone! Her packaging is beautiful, so make sure to check it out!

four easy tips when picking your perfect ottoman

Ottomans and coffee tables take up the same space in your home, yet they are very different in what they look like an potentially used for. They both can have items layer on them, create a center piece for your environment, sometimes a sitting tool or a foot rest and can at times be a storage unit. Today I am focusing on finding your perfect ottoman. These tips can apply to coffee tables as well. If you are not sure what you want, a coffee table or an ottoman, just consider do you want a soft or hard surface for this piece? Ottomans tend to be a soft surface (fabric), while coffee tables tend to be a hard surface (metal or wood). When picking out your perfect ottoman consider the following tips.

tip no. 1 | size

Size is crucial. This is not the piece I would start out with. Sometimes we just have to start from a piece, which might be the ottoman, but it is much easier to have your sofa and/or chairs picked out prior, so you know how much space you have left over to work with. You want at least 2 feet between your ottoman and the next item (i.e. sofa). Sometimes people like to bring it to 1.5 feet, but I feel that it makes it way too crowded for most situations. Once you know the larger pieces and the border of 2 feet, how much space do you have to work with? Your ottoman should not be any larger then this size. This is easy for some larger space, but if you live in a smaller environment this narrows what you have to choose from quickly.

tip no. 2 | comfortability

Do you use this space as a sitting area or foot stool? Ottomans are my favorite, over coffee tables, because if you have a party it can instantly become more seating for your guest. If you love the look of soft materials, but don’t want it to be a seating area consider displaying items, such as; books, trays, flowers, etc. Depending on what you want may require different things, if you want it as a display think about having a denser cushion so the display won’t get knocked over if someone does put their feet on it, where if it is potentially an additional seating area you may want the cushion to be less dense to be more comfortable.

tip no. 3 | style

Style is always important for the ottoman, because it is ultimately the focus and center piece of the space more likely then not. It can sometimes even be the topic of conversation. When considering the style think about the same color scheme as the space. If there is wood or metal on the ottoman try to match the color similarly to the wood or metal on the other pieces of your space.

tip no. 4 | durability

Don’t forget this piece will probably see a lot of ware and tare if you are using it as a foot rest, especially if you wear your shoes in the house. depending on the usage of the ottoman consider the type of fabric you use. Cotton and linen will show the wear less then leather or velvet. If you are using it often on one side, but love a more wearable fabric, rotate the ottoman so the wear is even.

Now go find that perfect ottoman!

DIY: decorative moss

. to create .DIY: decorative moss | Nuance Design | LindyJacoby.com

Happy St. Patricks Day! In honor of this holiday I wanted to showcase a very green DIY. It is almost spring which means our trees soon will be covered in leaves and the moss will fade. So why not use it’s resources before it disappears till the next winter season? Moss will soon be hidden away, but yet it makes a great decorative piece for your home and is very versatile. The simple steps below will help you turn natural moss into an elegant home decor and it only cast pennies!DIY: decorative moss | Nuance Design | LindyJacoby.com DIY: decorative moss | Nuance Design | LindyJacoby.com

step no. 1 | gather your material

You will need a matte finish spray and moss from a tree. Go grab forge for moss from the trees outside your home! You’ll be surprised how quickly you’ll get to the amount you want. It should be really simple to pick the moss off. There is such a range of different kinds of moss, so choose what you want. DIY: decorative moss | Nuance Design | LindyJacoby.comDIY: decorative moss | Nuance Design | LindyJacoby.com

step no. 2 | dry

If the moss is wet at all, let it dry. Place the moss on a towel and let it dry over night.DIY: decorative moss | Nuance Design | LindyJacoby.com

step no. 3 | spray

When the moss is dried spray the moss with a clear matte finish spray, in a well ventilated area. This will help keep the moss dry and stiff, along with lasting longer.  Now decorate! You can use moss in so many different ways, in vases, in bowls, create a center piece with it, etc. DIY: decorative moss | Nuance Design | LindyJacoby.comDIY: decorative moss | Nuance Design | LindyJacoby.com

Happy Monday! One of my favorite post to do is fashion design to interior design. Isn’t it fun to take a piece of clothing that you always feel your best self in and create a beautiful environment for yourself. This way you always feel your best self without having to wear the same piece of clothing everyday? I wanted to focus today on One Kings Lane, a company that I have loved for awhile, they have such a variety of styles and pieces that can peak everyone’s interest. Today I am taking fashion design to interior design and showcasing some beautiful heels and focusing on three room designs off the heels and One Kings Lane chaises. We are “head over heels for chaises,” so why not bring them together? I love chaises and actually have one in my bedroom! See below how you can focus on a single type of furniture, in this case a chaise, and create three very different rooms off them. Enjoy!
