Ring, Ring! It's your husband calling. A few family members are on a road trip and are passing through your state.
Husband: They'd like to stop in to say a quick 'hello.'
Ring, Ring! It's your brother. He and the wife really need a date night.
Brother: Can we drop the kids by your house for a few hours?
Brother: "Oh! By the way, they haven't eaten yet. Can-you-take-care-of-that-Sis?-Thanks-Bye! (click)
Has this ever happened to you? If you answered yes, then you'll love this easy go-to recipe.
As much as I love decor and design, I'll be the first to admit that sometimes I just don't feel like spending money for something new. Especially if the new item doesn't match (or surpass) the quality and uniqueness of the old one.
Having said that, I have this mirror in my dining room that had been grating on my nerves for some time. It's a nice, sturdy, and rather large piece that I got for a steal at a going-out-of-business sale years ago. But as my tastes have shifted over the years, this mirror simply did not keep up.
Regular readers of this blog already know that I've been planning a girls night in for a few of my friends. After carefully going over all the details, I'm happy to say that it was a hit!
If you're planning to entertain a few people in your small space, here are some tips on how to treat your guests to an unforgettable experience.
Did this week pass quickly or what? Today is the fifth and final day of wedding week. Welcome y'all!
It is also the day when I present the strongest color palette yet for this series. This color scheme is NOT for the shy bride. Nor is it for the bride who needs to poll everyone before committing to a decision.
It is for strictly reserved for the bride with cool confidence (sans arrogance of course). The one who's not afraid to go beyond the traditional wedding colors. THESE colors are for a "Becky wit' da good hair don't care" kinda girl. Ha!
Welcome to Day 4 of Wedding Week! Hope you're enjoying this series 'cause I'm having a blast!
Many of you have probably seen those fancy handwritten mirrors on Pinterest and YouTube "how-to" videos. Truth be told, unless you're a skilled calligraphist or other type of artist, it can be very tricky getting all the letters to line up just so.
Recall that I featured one in the staged wedding reception that I created in my backyard. Today I'm going to show you how to make a handwritten mirrored sign the easy way.
If there is one color that will forever remain popular for weddings it's pink. Brides of every age seem to love this color.
And it's no wonder. It is a delicate color that symbolizes sweetness, romance, femininity and tenderness. It is also a symbol of unconditional love, and thus perfect for a wedding. I bet you thought many of those qualities were associated only with the color red huh?
Today we'll explore this enchanting color in our staged outdoor reception. Welcome to day 3 of wedding week!
Welcome to Day 2 of J'adore le Décor's Wedding Week!
I hope you enjoyed yesterday's Gold and White Inspiration theme. In case you missed it, you can view the post here.
Today I'm sharing a shamefully easy and cheap, yet very striking DIY. I call it a hanging tree hoop. This piece can be as extravagant or as simple as you'd like. What is even more special about it is that it doubles as wedding decor and as the perfect "photo booth".
Welcome to day one of my first ever Wedding Week!
Although most of my topics cover home and commercial spaces, as the name of this blog clearly states - j'adore le décor. So anything related to design and decorating has a chance to be featured here.
And nothing - nothing excites me more than outfitting a wedding reception venue. This week I plan to share a few DIY projects, budget friendly options, and chic color schemes. All settings have been created with a modest sized outdoor reception in mind. But all ideas can be adapted to fit any venue or budget. So let's jump right in with our first color scheme: Gold and White.
There's just something euphoric about getting a first apartment or home. FINALLY you have a space to do anything you wish. Well... almost anything.
The problem is that for most of us, our first apartment, condo or home might be a bit snug, tight... s-m-a-l-l. But if you follow this blog regularly you already know that for true small space dwellers - like myself - size doesn't mean a thing.
Today we'll explore two design boards that well illustrate how to choose the right furnishings for your first apartment or home.
Welcome to "my place". I'm Ola, a self-confessed décor addict and DIY think-tank. I love working with small spaces. Make yourself comfortable, and feel free to "shop" my ideas.
