Shopping Trip ~ HomeGoods

Standard

In a recent shopping spree at HomeGoods, we found some cute inspirational items and some great bargains! Our first hidden treasure isn’t much to look at, but with some thought, we used it to design a really cute room!

Now if you rotate it, hang it from the ceiling and add a few nice white (or any color depending on the season or decor of your room) candles you have a fabulous chandelier! Pretty cute for only $69.99. Now use your imagination and add items to sit on or hang from it, for example fall leaves and small pumpkins for this Halloween/Thanksgiving season!

Add a few of these pieces of art and you have a cute Shabby Chic or Beach Cottage entry way or dining room. See below for additional items we found at HomeGoods…

Here is another cute idea from www.loveandlavender.com using shutters for a bulletin board and headboard. What other ideas can you come up with using shutters?

Shop ‘Til You Drop!!! A Teens Room….

Standard

 

Well, we haven’t had many posts lately…   been busy bringing the Diva out of people!  Here is one example of a teens room…  no Paris theme here!  We started with our fav thing to do…  SHOP!!!

Below is our deco board on Olioboard that we presented to the client.  Our room had a low budget and existing furniture.  The client didn’t want a rug in the room for medical reasons.  This room turned out fabulous as the Divas used a lot of pre-existing items that were already in the room AND shopped for sale items.

OB-Teen Bedroom


Our Inspiration


 IMG_8508

…this was our inspiration to our design.  We took some of our favorite places to shop and framed their “bag” in black frames and put scrapbooking papers as the background.  We hung the pictures from ceiling to floor to add height to the room and to also add more shopping bags of course!  It was hard to decide which stores to frame!! 

…the very very cute wire mannequin was a great find!  We located some on-line but they were over $100.  This one we came across was at Marshalls for $40 and was 100 times cuter!!!  We dressed up the mannequin with cute clothes, a purse, strand of pearls, glamorous pumps and of course, Channel shopping bag to demonstrate to our teenage girl how fun this mannequin can be!

 


Before and after photos

Above is the focal point of the room.  We moved the bed to the window and painted the wall black.

We found this wonderful Gucci poster from an eye glass store that was literally throwing them away to replace them with the new summer eye wear line.  It was FREE!!!  We turned her computer desk into a vanity and hung the round mirror above (after photo was taken).  Please remember our clients design their own rooms according to our plan and can decorate their own space at their own pace.

We removed the dresser and put the smaller dresser with hutch next to the pick accent wall.  This allows our teenager to display her photos and accomplishments.  We also found a matching Kate Spade box and cute chunky picture frame from Hobby Lobby.

Here we removed the hutch from the desk and re-arranged the furniture for better flow and placement.   Again, we found the free Kate Spade poster from the Ophthalmologist office. Our client will hang the thick white framed bulletin board to showcase her favorite photos.

The ceiling fan was replaced with this beautiful chandelier from Overstock.com.  This light only hung 22” which was critical in our 8’ ceilings.  This lamp was only $113!!  What a FAB difference!

Above are some wide angle shoots of our complete room.  We decorated this space in two days and for under $500.  FABULOUS!!!

 

How Cute are these fabulous lamps from Hobby Lobby!!!  The were $90 a piece, but we found them on sale for 50% off!!  They add just a little glamour to the room and we suggested to our client to add fun bows and crystal pins to the shade!!
