Pin it Floor cushions are hot items right now. They make great alternative seating to accommodate extra dinner party guests and they're perfect for back patio garden parties during the summer. Every shop from West Elm to Serena & Lily offers plenty of options, but depending on your budget they can be a little on the pricey side. For DIY types, I've put together a tutorial that will help make you the queen or king of your next party, and still leave you a little cash for a few extra cheese plates. READ MORE »

Name: Suzanne Location: San Francisco, CA Square Feet: 650 Division: Little What I Love About My Small Home: I love the blend of the inexpensive pieces and the one of a kind's, like the tile mosaic in the dining room that was created by my grandfather, my "Roger Sterling" silver fox footstool in the living room, and my print of "Sin Miedo" series 1/7, created by a dear friend. Check out her work at michellethomasfineart.com Even though my apartment is a bit of a rectangle cookie cutter, the upgrades made by the owner, plus some personalizations I made, make it cozy and inviting.

Like this entry? Favorite it below! Name: Amanda Location: Atlanta, GA Square Feet: 750 Division: Little What I Love About My Small Home: Our building is a former Ford factory, built in 1926, that was renovated into loft apartments in the 1980s. The large factory windows sold us immediately. It's such a beautiful space and so versatile! My husband and I are both artists, so we decided to use the designated dining space for an art studio and office. When we moved here two months ago, we brought all of our artwork and decorations from our former 1200 sqft apartment in the suburbs and decided to fill our walls to the brim, taking advantage of their bright, white, gallery quality. The result is an eccentric, bright, colorful space that we are totally in love with. READ MORE »

Pin it Coffee filter flowers are positively the simplest paper flower to make—and quite possibly the prettiest. Their thin, delicate texture allows light to pass through the "petals" similar to those of real flowers, making them all the more ethereal, and causing you to do a double take. READ MORE »

Pin it From Veerta: I am an Interior Designer with my own company, Motiani Design , but this project is a little more special to me, because it's actually my home. I moved in with my boyfriend about six months ago, and naturally of course, we immediately started having decor battles! We needed to convert a portion of HIS penthouse bachelor pad in Marina Del Rey to OUR "his and hers home office” ASAP. READ MORE »

10 Times Wallpaper in the Bathroom Actually Looked Really Great

Pin it For some of us, the thought of wallpaper in the bathroom may draw up images of terrible 80s interiors — giant, chintzy florals, shiny, overwrought gold fixtures, maybe even a little carpeting in the mix. But I want the record to show that I have never been against wallpaper in the bathroom. The hallway bathroom of our home, growing up, was covered in a gold toile print (a legacy, I think, from the former homeowners), and I spent many a happy evening in the tub dreaming about what all those French country people were doing. If you want your bathroom to be similarly fascinating, maybe the time has come to give wallpaper a try. READ MORE »

Pin it Name: Doris Lee, husband Jon and son Jak Location: West London, UK Size: 1,245 square feet Years lived in: 5 years This high-ceilinged Victorian terrace on a quiet road in West London is home to interior designer and blogger Doris Lee, husband Jon and their five-year-old son Jak. Before they purchased the house five years ago, the previous owners had carried out extensive renovations: a side-return extension housing the galley kitchen, a new open-plan arrangement with areas for living, working, eating and playing, and new flooring throughout. With the refurbishments already done—and an ideal space for Doris' new interior design business, too—it felt like the perfect home for this young family. Open Slideshow READ MORE »
