We've begun decorating our third bedroom/Hue's office space/lounge room and I can't wait to post pictures of it all. I'll have before and afters for you in the next two weeks, until then, I will be providing regular updates...I hope they'll meet you "worth the wait" standards.

If you're a fan of HGTV and you watch their show "I Want That" you probably have seen this toilet paper that was featured on the show about a year ago; for some odd reason I thought about the product today and I want to get your thoughts on neon colored toiletry. Does your bottom deserve $150.00 toilet paper (15 rolls)...well Renova thinks so; what are your thoughts?

It's been a couple of days since I've posted anything. I (or should I say my mind because my body was right here at home) took a short vacation to get some things straight but I'm back! This is my third post about these graphic x rugs found at 2modern and I just can't seem to get enough of sharing these with you. They may not be the most practical purchase but they are super hot, enjoy.

I'll admit changing the paint color in a room several times, or even once a year, is quite ambitious; but I feel like even if the walls were painted a neutral tone or left chocolate brown changing everything else still would have a dramatic effect.
Which room is your favorite?

White is a cool color but if you have a white space that you're looking to warm up I'd suggest bringing in some neutral or warm hues to the room as well as lots of texture such as corduroy, faux fur, and velvet. Imagine changing out the black accessories in the rooms shown above for rich brown tones. Add drapes over the current sheers which can add both function (literally keeping the room warmer) and style, a couple of toss pillows, and a throw (which is also functional for snuggling) and you've got an instant Winter Wonderland!
Look at your white room as a blank canvas. The bedroom shown above has endless style possibilities. I can imagine it transitioning perfectly with just a change of accessories from season to season making the space suitable year round.
In spite of everything I've said remember your space is your own, and it's meant to make you happy, so if you're comfortable with your all white space...Don't change a thing!

It's so hard to say goodbye but we must bid Pier1.com farewell! I need a hug.
I really like this cozy, stylish bedroom. I love the bold patterns used, especially the geometric pattern used on the window treatments, but because it's such a subdued color palette this room manages to be relaxing with just a hint of retro.
So here's the game plan
Now Steal that Style!
Remember this Zak Table Lamp from our "Designer, Deal, and Steal" post a couple of days back, it was the clue to what the next "Steal Style" post would be. Buy it here at $199.00, the best price I've found online.
I would have loved to find those folding stools, like the ones in the photo but I didn't come across those exact stools. I thought either of these were comparable folding stools for $99.00 each or the wine barrel stave chairs set of 2 for $349.00. I believe the stools would be more comfortable than the chairs and the stools would make for a more appropriate setting.
3 Black Studio frames with white picture matting hung above the bed for art. Use whatever subject you'd like for your pictures, as long as the photo is black and white. Buy the 16x20 frames here for $39.99 each.
Down to the tiniest detail if you want your room to emulate the designer room you'll need a coral or shell statue for your bedside table. This lacquered shell on a stand (center) can be purchased for $22.95.
Three neutral colored toss pillows and the "head" of the bed (tan, ivory, taupe, beige, etc.). Target is a great place to find pillows and linens like this pillow that's on sale for $7.50. You'll need basic white sheets and pillowcases which can be found for as low as 29.99, and don't forget the throw for over your stools or chairs.

"Morning Lust" and "African Rain"
Wednesday, August 29, 2007
What a love story; Curvy furnishings mixed well with clean lines. Tradition falls for modern and black revisits white, when the zebra hits the floor. The glass table says, "I know I could have covered this up, but I want you to see it all"! What is that...velvet?("Coming to America" fans can appreciate that LOL) Not too much fuss, just some wall paper, lemon trees, and bold color. Lay out the zebra rug to "anchor" it all and it's dinner for three in this retro dining area.
No matter the style the equation is simple;
if you want a room that = BOLD and FUN + ZEBRA !
