Welcome to the stunning home of Ariane Goldman. It is bright and clean and most of all feels completely unique and free to create in. The patterns are fun and bold against an all white canvas. Love, Love, Love!
Having people over for the holidays? Live in a less than ideal apartment with a less than ideal amount of seating? Going to Target today to buy some folding chairs?
Well then I’ve got (Well Design For Mankind has got it!) the perfect solution to maintaining your chic home style while still being able to temporarily seat guests.
PAINT & RECOVER THEM! Genius!
There is literally nothing complicated about this project. It’s just old chairs, paint, fabric and very basic tools! I think I’m going to do this to a folding card table as well! Check out the original post for full details on this project! Yay for very practical and beautifying DIYs!

Oh my goodness! This is so wonderful, and almost magical. Who wouldn’t want a headboard made of books? MMMM… I’m in love…. For the full tutorial (which is so easy it’s sick) check out Design Every Day! I wonder if my husband will let me do this…
Hello everyone! I’m so sorry I’ve been gone so long. I’ve really had a crazy week. My husband and I just moved into a new apartment and man is that a lot of work. I have a hard time relaxing with all the boxes everywhere, so literally all of my time in the last two days that was not spent working or sleeping I’ve been packing,moving and then unpacking it all again. I’m thrilled to be in the new place. It is so big compared to my last tiny dwelling. I’ll post pictures as soon as I can get somethings organized, just so you all can get an idea of what I’m tackling here.
But, in the mean time, here are a few of the most inspiring living rooms I’ve come across.
I hope you kinda get the similarities in all of these photos. I am thrilled by really vintage shapes and woods. I love bright, bold and sometimes almost Latin inspired colors. And I love a very clean base to put it all on. It all comes together very happy and fun while still being very relaxed and clean.
Check out my For the Home board on Pinterest to see so much more! I can’t wait to get decorating!
Happy Wednesday! So I’ve finally done it! I’ve painted that ugly entry table. This is what the table looked like before.
I debated so many colors for so long. This was my original color inspiration.
I thought about a variety or reds, yellows, white or of white and even green. Then I read this post on Apartment Therapy on the color of the year for 2012. Neadless to say I was inspired.
Now, this isn’t exactly the color I wound up with. I may have liked this better than what I wound up with. Remember the pinwheels I made a few weeks ago that are on the wall next to this console table. Well the paper I ended up finding for those is way more orange than tangerine tango.
Anyway, I took a piece of the paper to the paint store and had them match it. Perfect! Then I got a really fun knob at Anthropologie. Done and Done.
This pictures are not great.
Here is an updated picture of my pinwheel wall. It’s not quite done, I need about four or five more.
Anyway, I’m really happy with how this little previously boring cluttered corner has developed. I’m working on sort of clearing out all of the clutter and generally living with less. I’m re-reading Apartment Therapy: The 8 Step Home Cure. And, really trying to find peace and happiness in my apartment. I’m trying to get things organized and really get rid of a lot of stuff. There has to be more space in this apartment!
Have a great day folks!
Lately I’ve been seeing these paper wheel flowers everywhere! And, I love them. I love them so much I might use them as regular home decor.
I’m going to go out and look for papers tomorrow, and see if I can find some really pretty papers in either yellow or orange patterns (maybe both?). I’m not picky (my home currently has literally no color pallet).
I’ve seen several tutorials on how to do them, and it totally seems plasable for my lack of talent. I have yet to see exactly how they are hung, but I think I may get some straight push pins and pin them directly into the wall.
I think in most of the weddings I’ve seen they’ve been hung from the ceiling. But I’m pretty sure I’d really mess that up. I think I can make them look better layered if I pin them into the wall.
I really can’t wait to start this project! I think it will be fun and easy and immediately gratifying. I don’t know what sort of pallet I’m going to use, or exactly where I’m going to put them. But, I am waiting to pick a paint color for my console table until I decide put these up. If my apartment ends up being very multi-colored, will that be okay? Look forward to how silly this gets!
