Looking at photos of celebrity homes can be overwhelming and intimidating at times, but if you study the spaces closely you’ll find lots of beautiful, unique and easy decorating ideas you can use to decorate your own home.

Here are a few of my favorite celebrity rooms and the ideas I think are worth copying…

Slide8

 Lauren Conrad

In my world, every room needs an element that sparkles and a metallic pillow is a simple way to add that accent.

Slide7

Issac Mizrahi

I’m kinda over the Billy bookcase look and think that floating shelves are much more interesting and chic.

Slide6

Tom Brady & Gisel Bundchen

We’re so use to seeing brick as a treatment on walls but the the idea of putting them on a ceiling is so fresh.

Slide5

Brooke Shields

A little color can take a free-standing soaking tub from OK to outstanding.

Slide4

Kourtney Kardashian

Three of my favorite things…black chairs + gold edging + bold fabric.  What a great DIY project.

Slide3

Ellen DeGeneres

I never thought about stenciling french doors until I saw this photo.  Such a great look.

Slide2

Genevieve Gorder

Reading lamps turned wall lamps are such a practical and stylish way to light up an office space.

Slide1

Cameron Diaz

For those of you that are fearless when it come to color, this is for you.  I vote for Emerald Green as the color of the year for 2015.

So, which of these celebrity spaces is your favorite?

Frame as Headboard

source

Sometimes an image can stop you in your tracks not because it is a space with lots of design details and color, but because what makes it beautiful are the simple details and simplicity.

Design Tip:  Never, Ever, Ever pass up a beautiful picture frame when antiquing or thrifting.  There are so many other great ways to use a picture frame beyond framing a photo.

DIY Wall Art by ConfettiStyle1

My mother was a school teacher for 27 years and every summer, a couple of weeks before school started, I’d go to the classroom to help her decorate the bulletin boards.  I loved going to her classroom and getting it ready for the first day of school and always love to write on the chalkboard and look at the old school map that hung on one wall.   The map seemed larger than life and I remember loving how it was hung, from two wood rods and a rope.

The other day I came across a piece of wall art that was hung in a similar way and it brought back memories.  I decided I needed my own version of vintage school map style artwork in my home and so I created one.  Instead of using an image for my art piece, I decided to create a wall quote instead.

To create this piece I headed to Hobby Lobby and picked up two pieces of  their 36″ x 1″ x 1/4″ pine wood pieces and a 11″ x 14″ canvas.

 Once home I cut the wood pieces in half so that I’d have four 18″ long pieces and then stained them with Minwax stain sheets.

Next I cut the canvas off of the frame so that I’d have a loose piece of canvas.  To create a clean edge, I measured 1/2″ in on each side of my canvas, folded the edge under and secured it with stitch witchery.

Then I got busy hand lettering my quote using a SharpieAlways Believe That Something Wonderful Is About To Happen!

Once I was done hand-lettering I glued the top and bottom edge of the canvas between two pieces of wood.

The piece now hangs as part of an eclectic gallery wall arrangement.

I love how this project turned out and the memories that it reminds me of.

faux fur pillow stack

I read a lot of design blogs and follow many bloggers on instagram and pinterest and I know that all of them, along with me,  are in the midst transitioning their home decor from summer to fall.

When it comes to decorating for fall, I often accessorize tabletops and my dining table with natural elements like leaves and pinecones and I usually decorate my front door with a fall arrangement.  But, mother nature is not my favorite design element when decorating for fall.  It’s faux fur!

Next week is going to be a crazy one.  I got called back for more jury duty questioning, for a big case here in Atlanta and I have my fingers crossed that I don’t get picked.  In anticipation of a busy week, I’ve completed two design plans early, I’ve written all my blog post for the week ( I’ve got some good ones for  you) and a new stack of magazines is ready to accompany me to the court house!

I think every woman needs a private vanity space.  A space to primp for a special night out, a day hanging with girlfriends or simply a spot to sit and get ready for a day of shopping.

The perfect vanity space should include:

* A desk or table
* A stylish chair
* Pretty wall art and a mirror
* Personal pictures
* A decorative lamp
* Beautiful containers and trays to hold makeup or jewelry
* Flowers
*  Personal treasures
 
Here are a few vanity areas that make we swoon and just might give you the inspiration for your own personal vanity space.

One of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to add architectural details to your home is by adding molding to your walls.  This bathroom really came to life because of the grid wall treatmet that was added.  The raised molding gives the space definition and makes the space feel larger because the vertical and horizontal lines create movement for the eye.  A few buliding supplies, tools and some paint and you can easily create this look in your own home.

Design Tip:  The key to a classic and elegant look is to keep the spacing between molding uniform and perfectly aligned. And always caulk for seamless edges and joints.

If you’re wanting to add a designer detail like this to your home, here’s a great guide to molding styles and application tips.
