One of the best spaces to experiment with color and pattern combinations is in the kid’s rooms. These fabrics were used in Carol’s “grandkid’s” space to create a fun and color-filled space for her grandkids to play and sleep.
Orange and pink paisley, same fabric-different colors, were the starting point for the window treatment and pillows for this bunk-like room where grandaughters spend the night.
Not too long after I started blogging I created a photo gallery to help clients view my window treatments and pillows designs. What started out with just a few photos has grown to include over 360 photos of window treatments, pillows and miscellaneous projects in all shapes, sizes, colors and patterns! That’s a lot of photos!
I recently updated the Gallery to a more user friendly format. When you visit The Gallery (click on the little glass Gallery knob just under the header above) you’ll see the various categories to choose from.
We have a new email subscription provider here at Beyond the Screen Door!
Over the past few months I’ve been working to determine the best option for email subscriptions and to correct the issue of “lost” email blog posts. I know this has been frustrating. If you’ve missed receiving Beyond the Screen Door in your in-box hopefully this switch has corrected any problems.
If you’d like to have Beyond the Screen Door delivered to your in-box…and I’d be so tickledif you do…please fill out the Subscription Box in the upper right hand corner of the side bar. It’s that easy!
Have you ever looked back through your Pinterest Boards with a fresh eye and considered the items you’ve pinned?
After recently pinning a few new slipcover pics I browsed back through some of my boards and notice just the tiniest preference for ruffled linens. Many of them using washed linen with raw edges. I adore this look.
Yet I don’t have one single item like this in my home. Why?
Why do we take the time to pin these inspiring photos yet fail to act on the inspiration? Whether it’s an item for our home, exercises for a flatter tummy, recipes for a healthier lifestyle or tips on saving money…it seems our intentions are good but our follow through is a bit lacking.
Today, I’m bragging on my friend Pamela’s master bedroom makeover. Pamela blogs over at From My Front Porch to Yours and recently finished this portion of her new master bedroom retreat, of which I had a very small part.
Have you ever made something that turned out so much cuter than you expected?
You guys know I love velvet and I’ve used a lot of black and ivory houndstooth recently so I knew these would be cute but I really fell in love with the way the blue velvet and houndstooth work together.
While 7 different fabrics were combined to make 4 different styles there are actually 7 pillows in this collection. 3 large ruffled euro pillows, 2 flanged shams, 1 double ruffle accent pillow and one 36″ long bolster made using 5 fabrics plus one luscious trim.
