The Friday 5 – Creative Decorating and More


We all love to see a good before and after, and this is a great one.  A post chock full of before and afters of designer Lauren Leiss‘s remodeled 1970s home.

Take the full tour here.

2. Coffee Stations.

Coffee stations are everywhere and this one has received 849 pins to date from our Pinterest page!

We’re not sure if it’s the entire coffee station, the little COFFEE sign, or the cabinet paint color (Sherwin Williams Thunderous) that’s making it so popular. What do you think?

3.  Light and Airy Living Room.

Speaking of popular, this image featuring the Angelina Sofa and chair was a hit on our Facebook page and you can see why.

4.  Making It Work.

Sometimes “not-so-optimal” design situations can lead to the most creative ideas.

This bathroom was one of those situations, and we’re loving the very on-trend rope/pulley solution! (source)

5.  Pencil Holder.

Whether it’s for a kids play area, a study space, or a home office – such a fun idea for a pencil holder. (source)

Using a grinder as a pencil holder - a unique and creative decorative touch for a home office!

    Oh, I really love the bathroom mirrors with pulleys, what a light and airy space! *sigh* I will definitely be shopping for or DIY’ing a ‘But first, coffee’ sign for my kitchen!
