I just got back from my trip to Ventura and LA last night and have a lot to catch up on today. But I wanted to pop in this morning to share these metallic planters that I made for Curbly recently.
All in all, each one of these took me about 5 minutes to make, and I already had all of the supplies, so it cost me nothing. Don’t you love it when that happens?
Want to make your own? Check out the full tutorial here on Curbly.
P.S. I had a great time at Craftcation and will be sharing some photos from my trip soon. What did you do this weekend?
This morning, I have butterflies in my stomach, from all the excitement…because today is the first full day of Meet/Make/Do activities. Chelsea, Kelly, and I got everything set up yesterday morning/ afternoon, and everyone started arriving mid-day. Then we headed out to dinner (which was delicious). I can’t wait to share the details from this event. For now though, you can follow along here. And on my Instagram. #meetmakebing
I was so looking forward to doing it all over again today, I woke up super early, like it was Christmas morning or something.
The vibe here is light, airy, and all kinds of calming/relaxing. So, I thought it would be appropriate to round up some of my favorite things right now that fit that description: light, airy, and completely calming…
What is inspiring you lately? Anything in particular that you’re absolutely loving?
I wanted to name this post ‘I ain’t afraid of no
ghost color’ but I can’t do a strikethrough on the title. So, let’s just pretend.
I think it goes without saying that I am a big fan of white interiors. White walls. White floors. White everything. BUT there is definitely something to be said for color as well. When I was in high school, I distinctly remember wanting to paint every room in my imaginary college apartment a different color. Which would have been utterly insane. But that’s what I wanted at the time. Man, how things have changed!
The only downside to color is that it’s much harder to get it ‘right’. I mean it’s easy to make things looks good when you have white walls (hello gallery), but color? That’s a whole lot more difficult, if you ask me.
Here are a handful of bold uses of color that are absolutely doing it right…
(above) I am in love with this turquoise wall.
Doesn’t that artwork look great on a royal blue backdrop like that? Never thought I would say that, but it’s true.
Lilac walls in a Seattle studio.
Salmon walls with that emerald green chair? Now, that is bold! And also, perfect.
And these jewel-toned, dark teal stairs are pretty great too.
So what do you think? Would you dare to try any of these colors on your walls (or stairs for that matter)?
