Some people use accent pieces for color, and some like to throw color onto the walls. If you're into patterned walls, white accents can balance a complex color scheme.... In these photos of Graham and Brown wallpaper patterns, the neutral furniture and white accents allow the patterns to take their place as a focal point. A few ideas for white accents: curtains, pillows, mirror frames, vases, lighting, and upholstery.
Above the bed is artwork that I produced with the help from a local artist. Each piece of artwork is from the blueprint of the house the bedroom is in. The Artist is Francesco Agresti the artwork was influenced by Richard Dibenkorn's work Ocean Park Series.
Does anyone know where I can dispose of interior house paint in or around the West Hollywood/West Los Angeles area? Some kind of haz-mat or paint drop-off location? The Sanitation Districts of Los Angeles County actually has a website that answers this question. They actually have a Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program, that gives LA county residents a legal and cost-free way to dispose of unwanted household chemicals. For Orange County residents, you can call The County of Orange Integrated Waste Management Department's Household Waste Office at834-6752 for locations near you. This website has other useful info for OC residents.
Done well and your home is sophisticated, timeless, and soothing. If you're not careful your house reads 2-dimensional and dull. Interest comes in the form of texture, which you desperately need. It can come in the form of projects large and small, from full-on architectural details to smaller accessories and decor. Erin of Earnest Home Co. found this simple geometric mat at her local Home Goods and loved its knubby texture. If You Have One Weekend.... Previously flat as a pancake, Jenna Sue's wall now has wooden panels for texture and architectural interest. The new grey surface elevates an otherwise bland bedroom into a sophisticated space.

It seems that with Sasha and Malia currently residing in the White House, presidential children are very popular items of discussion and remembrance. Just how many children have been in the White House? Well, a recent slide show at Us Magazine gives us a photographic glimpse into the various kids who ran the White House hallways. Who knew Alice Roosevelt was so cool? According to Us, 'The self-described 'wild child,' smoked on the roof of the White House, fired guns at telegraph poles and walked around with a boa constrictor roped around her neck.'

Silhouette art is a timeless way to commemorate childhood and we have seen several fresh departures from the traditional cut paper, from sun prints to thrift store art. This paint and plywood spin has an organic edge that we love. The method and materials are surprisingly simple: take the model's picture, print it in the desired size, cut out the image, trace onto plywood then paint outside of the profile. Find the project tutorial and a play-by-play video featuring Genevieve Gorder at Lowe's Creative Ideas.
Hello AT,. I recently moved to a new loft and I am struggling with what window coverings to use. There are three very large windows on the main floor of the loft. Initially I was thinking of using some sort of solar roller shade, but now that I moved in I'm not so sure about that anymore since the windows are really big. Ideally I would like to have some sort of window treatment that provides some privacy. If, in addition, it helps to block the noise from the street that would be great. Attached are a couple of pictures of the large windows.
Patrick's window was being worked on while I was there. While it was freezing outside, I was in the Bloomingdale's windows testing out their internet connection and checking on the installation of Jane, Patrick and Curtis' window displays. They're being installed, Apartment Therapy style, right now and should be done by tonight.... You can follow it all right here, www. The openings to the window are hidden in the store and locked when installation isn't going on. One of the entrances is right here through the Marc Jacob's store. Getting closer! The windows are a lot smaller than you expect. This is Curtis' incredible paint by numbers wall already installed. This is the TV screen that will be showing our site live and keeping track of the window voting for the next two weeks Jane's window is the most done already.
While Elizabeth's apartment may be color-filled elsewhere, we love her glam, primarily gray bedroom. From cool art to crisp bedding, there are some serious wows to this wonderful boudoir.
It's up for debate for sure but I think for many, the living room-especially for apartment or condo dwellers-is the most used space in their home. It's where you relax, entertain, get some work done and maybe even have a bite in front of the T.V. Having a small space doesn't mean you can't do all that and still have a stylish and functional living room. If you like neutrals with a sprinkle of personality and dash of modern style, then you're going to love this living room and we'er going to show you how it's possible on any budget. The original inspiration for this look came from this fabulous home tour we spotted on Apartment 34. This living room is a perfect example of a space that is filled with neutrals but doesn't lack any personality with lots of interesting textures, styles and finishes plus some fun art to make it both relaxed yet modern.
