The Perfect Canvas from Photowall

We all have that one room in our home that is neglected, right?! I’m not alone in this or am I? Well, in our home, our Game Room had been neglected for many months. Not because of a lack of ideas but a lack of motivation to complete the project. This changed when I found the perfect canvas to dress up the walls.

By now, you know that I am not a Houston native, but I love this city. And when I saw that our beautiful skyline was an available design with Photowall, I did a little happy dance. 🙂 I mean, not only had I found the perfect design but the colors were a perfect match for our Game Room. This canvas really brought life to the space.

What’s Photowall you ask?! It is a Swedish company offering environmentally friendly wallpaper and canvas print designs. If you’re thinking that because you’re in the U.S. you cannot get your hands on their designs, you’re wrong. They ship internationally! I’m in Texas and I got my canvas within days! 😉 The canvas came in a single box with all the pieces to put it together. It was really easy to set up the frame, attache the canvas to the glued portion of the frame and hang with the include hardware.

Five Ways to Add Personality to your Apartment – without Breaking the Bank

Getting a new apartment is an exciting time. I remember the very first time I got my first apartment without my family or roommates. It was so exciting! All throughout college, I had lived with roommates and for the most part didn’t do much decorating because it was a shared space. So when I was getting my first apartment alone, I couldn’t wait to start planning how I would make it my own.

That being said I was also a new college grad with limited funds. I knew I wanted to add my personality to the place but I also knew that I needed to do so on a budget. Here are five smart ways to add personality to your new apartment without breaking the bank.

Make Your Own Art

I didn’t initially plan to make my art. I went to a few places, like Ross and Marshalls, to look for art. Store after store I just couldn’t find anything I wanted to look at every day. I went to a local discount arts and crafts store to see what they had in stock.

Overwhelmed by Color Swatches?

A guide to picking paint colors for your home

By Christine H.

Wall color is something that rarely stands out to us. In fact, sometimes that’s the point. However, it can have a major effect on the psychological impact of a room. According to the color scheme and how it’s handled, a room can feel cheap or posh, dramatic or cozy.

The color of your walls (and floor and ceiling) can either bring the whole room together, or throw the whole room off. It can affect how the room holds light, or how strained your eyes feel, and how good your furniture looks. It can make a room feel set apart from the rest of the house or seamlessly integrated into a progression from room to room.

If you get anxious about picking out colors for a room, here are some tips, from the experts, that can help you get started:

Making a Plan

To start out with you need to plan more than the wall colors themselves. Designing a room that’s thoughtful and coordinated-looking will include considering everything from the carpet on the floor to the color of the ceiling, including all furniture, curtains, decorations, wall hangings, and fabrics. So, it’s a good idea to have an overall plan first. For you, that process might consist of taking stock of what you have, creating a vision board, or finding your perfect statement piece. This article has some great tips for getting started on envisioning your dream home’s interior.

Balancing Household Duties as Newlyweds

When you got married, you probably never stopped to think how something so simple as dish duty would impact your relationship. However, maintaining the balance of your relationship day in and day out often depends on those little details of living.

It can take a lot of adjustment for newlyweds to learn to live together. Often, it takes time and forgiveness. Nowhere is this more apparent than in household chores. Here are some tips for how to balance household duties in a home where both of the newlyweds work and live together…

Start how you want to continue

Many people start the beginning of a relationship with all sorts of plans for being a domestic goddess, or a husband who pampers his wife. The urge to serve your spouse is something that you should always hold on to, but it’s important to also remember that how you start out is often how you’ll continue. Enlisting help for household duties will be harder down the line when your life becomes more busy and stressful. So make sure that from the get-go, you both realize that you need to work as a team to run the household. Take turns, and take time out to appreciate what the other person does to help life run more smoothly.
