A book you can plaster your walls with!

    What a timely post…today I am ordering Botanicals: Butterflies and Insects.

    The "others also bought" links underneath the book also look promising.

    Haven't seen the book in person, but Emily Clark's blog had a post on it and looks perfect for my MIL's living room.

    such a smart idea – i love using books for art. i have a few framed pages from a wildflowers of america book* lovely and cheap, always a win. xx, Jane

    Love the chairs in the first photo, but I worry about how practical a white dining chair would be.

  4. Nikki says:

    I've always thought about it for children's rooms, but never a whole house. I think its a great idea!

  5. Kiki says:

    OMG – this is amazing and its also good to know that i am not the only person that does this… I use high gloss magazines though. The design/trade and fashion magazines are printed on really nice paper and have great images (and cost a lot less)…I actually did a a few frames in my home with this..You have now given me a thought – I will share the images on my blog because everyone thinks I bought them…

    Love the post!
    I was thinking of doing my daughter's room with Shel Silverstein pages! Her and I both love his poems and artwork! Fun!
    Perhaps with different colored mattes or frames?!?!

    I actually found this Wildflowers of America book via Jenny at Little Green Notebook:

    It's amazing – tons of beautiful prints and it's only around $12!

    I also love high gloss magazines as artwork. My favorite is old copies of Neiman Marcus's monthly "The Book" Fabulous art in The Book. Perfect for a small bath or dressing room.

  9. Amy says:

    I love Norman Rockwell's art. I have bought several of his books at discount book stores and framed the prints. I love the nostalgic feel to them.

  10. Brand New and Beautiful says:

    The Taschen calendars make great sources for framable prints, too. There's a parrot one I have my eye on!

    Last year I framed pictures from a vintage book on airplanes for my boyfriend. In my room, I have fashion sketches from an old Neiman Marcus book. Would love to frame the pages of "FLAIR".

    A great idea… the most difficult part for me is finding large frames at an affordable price… even IKEA charge $70 for their larger ones!! 🙂 Hazel

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
