I’m dedicating this post to what’s new, upcoming and heck, whatever I found interesting lately in the big wide online world. So without further ado here’s the articles and DIYs that caught my attention and made me ponder.
I loved this post written by Leslie Carothers on Hadley Court’s blog titled, “How much does it cost to remodel a kitchen?” It’s a great read if you are about to embark on a kitchen remodel, makeover or renovation. HGTV has done a great disservice to all in the design industry and to our clients, as renovations do not get done properly in a week or on a ridiculously small budget. And this article helps to dispel a few myths.
Benjamin Moore’s colour trends 2015, They went in a different direction than Pantone’s Marsala and I am seriously considering doing one of the cottage bedrooms in Guilford Green HC-116, once I figure out who is taking the wallpaper down :-/. It is such a soothing soft, timeless green, and I can so see it with all the warm pine.
Loved reading Lumar Interiors post all about the “anti-trend” trend for 2015. As I tell my clients, don’t worry so much about the trends, it’s all about living with a space that feels like home to you and works for your lifestyle.
Now, I secretly and seriously want to be a minimalist. I purge and donate, but then I almost instantly have a need to fill all the empty spaces….sigh. So I loved this read from Apartment Therapy and last spring I actually did put some spring clothes away to see if I’d even miss them. I’ll let you know how that goes in a few months.
I have enlarged and framed many of my own photos to put on the walls of my house and cottage, and I’m totally loving this simple DIY to turn photos into huge statement making ART from Popsugar. I just have to go through my thousands of photos to figure out which one I want to try this with…oh yeah…and where it would go.
Have a fabulous weekend and let me know which pondering caught your attention.
