A Candle in the Darkness

Candle in DarknessThere’s nothing like the beautiful glow of a candle! It provides a soft, warm glow in the darkness and casts elegant shadows around it. A simple, elegant photo like this would be great in a bathroom, girl cave, or chill out space. Not only does the soft light in the photo go with any decor, but it’s also a reminder that there’s always a light in the darkness.

Keeping the Home Fires Burning

Woodstove fireWhen people think of glowing fires they usually picture a big fireplace. In my case, I live in a home that has a wood stove. Despite this, I can still get an awesome shot of the fire burning! There are several ways to achieve a shot like this. It can be taken through the glass or, as I did, open the door for a few seconds and snap a quick shot. Just the image of these flames warms me up! This would be a great conversation piece to hang in a den or family room, especially during the winter. The dark, earthy colors in addition to the bright flames creates a cozy, warm feel in any space! So remember, no matter what your source of warmth, you can get a great picture that will give your decor a warm glow!

I’ll be adding a new video soon to my YouTube channel, so be sure to check the My Videos page for updates!

New Year, New Chair

For my first post in 2015 I’m going to show you how to transform your accent chairs! I found this fuchsia chair at my local big box store and thought it would go perfectly with the style in my bedroom. While it’s a great chair on its own, I wanted to think of a way to give it some extra flair. The solution? Fabric! In this instance I decided to use an extra pillowcase that had a tropical pattern, One of the flowers in the pattern was the same color as the chair’s fabric. I centered it on the chair’s back and viola-instant update! Before and after pictures are shown below.

This is a great and simple way to update your furniture! In addition to chairs, you could also use the same technique on larger items such as a sofa or loveseat. Whether you save money by using fabrics you already own or choose to buy fabric at a craft store, you can easily start off 2015 with a brand new look!
