i stumbled upon this fabulous home featured on design*sponge and just had to share.
isn’t it fabulous? simple, cozy elegance. with touches of antiques, old books, and original family art. i love the strategic collections of mementos. not cluttered shelves and tables of “stuff” but important trinkets on display that are as lovely as they are meaningful.
this sends my mind a-spinning with decorating projects…how about you?
i love cool lamps but they can be just so darn expensive! and even if you do pay the price, they lack a certain “special” quality. that unique twist that makes them fit perfectly into the decor.
and so, i have decided follow in the footsteps of those brilliant folks at design*sponge and try my hand at creating a personalized lampshade or two.
there is never a shortage of fabulous prints at the fabric store so perhaps i will pop over there with my mom one afternoon and snag some interesting pieces. that plus a good ol’ vintage etsy find and i should be in good shape for raw materials. from there, i am hoping that i can just follow the step-by-step and then, voila! a gorgeous and one-of-a-kind lamp for miss elinor’s room.
wish me luck!
what fun diy projects are you tackling these days?
