Need help styling/decorating a room?

Do you need help styling a room in your home? Many people find they just don’t know where to start and need a little help.  Here’s an example of where I would start.

ikea rug

I am so in love with this new rug from Ikea.  I spotted it in a magazine and assumed it was from an expensive store.  When I saw it was from Ikea I nearly jumped for joy.  Seriously, it’s that good.  The colours are fantastic and work so well together.  I can think of a thousand ways of styling this rug.

Here’s just one of many ways to be inspired by a piece. (There are also plenty more products that could be added to this room)

i’ll let you in on a DIY secret……

I’ll let you in on a secret……I am hopeless at DIY! (Do it yourself)  I swoon over beautiful rooms, spend hours moving objects around so that they look perfect, could spend days shopping for homewares and furniture.  But when it comes to actually making things – not so good!!! I look at beautiful DIY projects and am in awe of the patience and skill of some amazingly talented people.  So I’ve put together a few examples for you below.  Click through on the links and you will see the instructions.  Let me know if you have attempted any of your own projects – would love to hear about it!!!! (Oh and by the way, my husband is just as bad as me, so between the two of us there’s a lot of procrastination when it comes to fixing things in our home!!!!)
