Easy Decorating Ideas

Found some great decorating ideas in Coastal Living (it is snowing, outside - I am trying to escape this never-ending winter).

The corner of this kitchen is adorable....




And so easy! Collect some items in your favorite colors and display as a group. (Displaying in groups is quite eye-catching -rather than spreading the chotskies around the house where they are lost amidst the clutter). In this example, the homeowner stuck to a green/blue color palette with white and soft yellow -quite calming.


Tired of looking at the kitchen floor that needs mopping? Hang a few Chinese lanterns in the kitchen...........

(They aren't permanent - and come down so easily! And you can go another day or two before you mop - since everyone is looking up.)

Here is a headboard created from an old door...........



I tend to "protect" windows - and leave them clear for viewing.

Why not treat them like mirrors or art - over a piece of furniture?


And here is a fun reason to enter the laundry room.....


Colorful art in the laundry room.

Have a great day!

Great tips! I love Coastal Living magazine. I'm looking for two old doors for twin headboards. I love the light and fun decor in that laundry room too. Thanks for sharing.
