    Home-made headboard

    by  • June 19, 2009 • Beautiful boudoirs • 1 Comment

    Most of the home-made head boards I’ve seen have been quite traditional or country in style.  However, this is a great modern idea.  They’ve put together nine canvases, all painted the same colour as the wall, then added in neon strips of paint for a quirky feature.

    Mosaic mix and match

    Check out this display of tiles behind the bath.  They’ve just stuck to one colour theme, but gone with a whole range of designs.  My favourite part is how they’ve been layered on top of each other – it really adds depth to the display.

    Let the light in

    by  • June 12, 2009 • Best of the rest • 0 Comments

    What do you do when the days get colder and your beautiful outdoor dining area goes to waste for the next few months? The owners of this conservatory have the right idea. By opting for a glass roof, the space gets just as much light as if they were outside, they get a clear view of the beautiful outdoor surroundings –  and they don’t ever have to worry about rain interrupting their meal!

    Introduce this modern take on traditional Moroccan-style to your living room scheme in just five steps.

    1) Opt for a restful and relaxing colour scheme with lilac and grape on the walls and grey and white upholstery.

    2) Introduce shimmering metallics with embossed metal pieces of furniture and a large mirror.

    3) Embellish cushions with iridescent shell or mother-of-pearl buttons.

    4) Add interest to your windows with elaborate fretwork screens for an exotic edge.

    5) Finish with Eastern-inspired, shimmering silver accessories.
