Spend sometime in your beautiful laundry room!


 BEFORE: A Bare, Narrow Space
Christina, the blogger behind The DIY Mommy, started with a totally barren workspace.

AFTER: Efficient Wall Storage
Christina took pegboard and covered the whole darn wall with color-coordinated tools. Plus, she turned the tops of her machines into extra workspace.

BEFORE: Beige and Cluttered
When Kim, the blogger behind Sand and Sisal, moved into her new home, she couldn't wait to tackle the blah walls and barely-there storage space in her laundry room.

AFTER: Bright and Blue
After hanging some floating shelves, investing in decorative storage bins and painting the room a pleasant color, things are became a lot more functional and cheery.

BEFORE: A Single, Messy Shelf
We're sure Kelly (of the blog View Along the Way) was sick of staring at her cluttered wire shelf.

AFTER: Much More Stroage
Lucky finds (a hanging drying rack bought on clearance) and DIY skills (a chic geometric lamp!) meant the whole look came together for just $157.

BEFORE: A Tired Mess
When you have four kids, two dogs, and a husband, it takes some effort (and patience!) to make your laundry room a calm, happy place. But Debbie — the blogger behind Me and My DIY — was up to the challenge.

AFTER: A Clean-Cut Space
Swapping out generic light fixtures for stylish pendants and adding beadboard wallpaper make this room much more pleasant on wash day.

BEFORE: A Neglected Nook
An avid party planner, Jennifer Carroll once used her laundry room as a dumping ground miscellaneous supplies (we're all guilty of it).

AFTER: Pleasantly Purposeful
A pastry shop in Paris inspired this new look — not only does it remind Jennifer of her fave place for French cuisine, but also makes doing laundry a much easier.


Coffee tables are often the centerpiece of the living room. We arrange seating around the coffee table. We use it to hold essentials such as books and drink coasters. It becomes an impromptu appetizer buffet when it’s time to entertain.

Coffee table featuring sculptural decor
Transparent glass is another way to go, whether the glass is colorful or clear. Try filling a clear container with sculptural objects (or one artful item) for an alluring centerpiece.

Minimal coffee table decor
Sometimes our first instinct is to cover large surfaces with an array of items. Yet lots of “stuff” can make even the largest of spaces seem cluttered. Try leaving a portion of your coffee table exposed for a clean look.

Coffee table with a sleek vase
Tempted to display your entire vase collection? Start with just one. You may decide that one is all it takes!

Floral arrangement on a coffee table
For those who prefer a bountiful yet tidy look, try placing one bloom-filled vase on your coffee table. The look is abundant yet contemporary, especially if you choose interesting flowers for your arrangement!

Dramatic coffee table decor
A grouping of items gets a big dose of drama by varying the height of the items on display. Below we see a collection of interesting, elegant items, including a trio of striking black vases.

Monochromatic coffee table style
A tone-on-tone strategy is unexpected. By matching the decor to the color of the coffee table, items stand out simply because the concept is interesting. Plus, the look is anything but cluttered, as both decor and table make a unified statement.

Whether for your bedroom, living room or bathroom, curtains and blinds can offer just as much to the design of a room as the furniture. Curtains can add instant cosiness or grandeur. Blinds use a fraction of the fabric needed for curtains, but the variety of styles and textiles available means they don't have to fall short on impact, give your windows some love!

Centre stage
This 'Deniz' linen/cotton, combining the curtains with a roman blind in a small pattern creates a decorated look, but the simple shapes stop it looking fussy.

 Elevated style
These Italian strung curtains, in the bedroom, have a goblet-pleated header design. They are fixed in position at the top and then drawn up and down using a cord. The look is quite traditional and very pretty. 

Gather together
The soft gathered pelmet and thick jacquard curtains in this bedroom are perfect for a country bedroom. When rooms are not especially high, it looks good if the pelmet goes right up to the ceiling, as seen here.

Plain sailing
Patterned walls with duck-egg blue interlined linen curtains with triple pleat headings, hung from a simple white pole. If you are undecided about the amount of fabric falling on the floor, try slightly 'baggy trousers' as shown. 

Back in fashion
Some rooms require a relaxed edge and these provide that softness, a simple linen print that looks charming and not at all like a Viennetta. 

Bold Orange & White Wool Curtain
Reminiscent of the artist Matisse's paper cuts - has been applied to a pale wool curtain.

Pattern is the most evocative of decorating tools, easily transporting us to a time or a place, from quintessentially English floral prints to bright Moorish fabrics. A mix of patterns, whether on furniture or wallpaper, has the power to create either a calming cocoon or add excitement and drama - it's all in how you use it.

If you opt for a patterned wallpaper with a bold ground colour - as our decoration director Gabby Deeming has in this pink living room - a good rule of thumb is to pick out the secondary colours in the pattern and use them as a jumping off point for the rest of the room's furnishings.

Bathroom wallpaper in pretty prints paired with accessories in complimentary colours is perfect for an eclectic look. A red and green colour scheme is particularly eye-catching; and all the better if you can add another print via a reflection in the mirror.

The modern living room sets the tone for the combination of pattern and texture to be found throughout the house. The walls are hung with a collection of starburst mirrors from various antiques fairs.

This eclectic yet restful bedroom layers bold paint colours and vintage furniture with pretty, pastel prints.

Love a particular fabric? Repeat it throughout a room for an impactful scheme.


Affordable and slightly old fashioned in the best possible way, let crepe paper streamers, paper chains and starry garlands be the final flourish to your Christmas decoration scheme. Here are our favourite ways to use them.

So affordable and pretty, with a process of assembly easy enough to get even the youngest crafters in the family involved, yet they still look suprisingly sophisticated.

 Invest in a craft punch - basially a giant hole punch that when applied to coloured card yeilds various pretty shapes - you won't regret it. String your craft punched bounty in to pretty gardlands, or stick straight to walls. 

Crepe-paper streamers are an affordable and effective way to add festive cheer to walls and furniture. 

Paper streamers - very simply made by rolling a sheet of crepe paper and cutting into slices like a swiss roll - can be garlanded around for a village-hall-celebration look.

Paper Fans and Flowers
For those who embrace colourful, kitsch decorating. Decorations derived from traditional Mexican and Polish styles are prefect for maximalists. See how to make your paper flowers.

Go oversize on decorations for impact. One of these paper rosettes would hold its own in a small room.
