Interior Design Tips: How to divide open concept living
April 1, 2019
So many of us love open-concept living. In fact, with the popularity of loft living, one open large room for all sorts of living places is not that unique. The key is to divide us a space in a way that doesn’t take away from that open concept. One easy way is to use something low and long to define different areas. In one large open space this low bookcase is perfect and the best part, it’s practical storage – you may even be able to use it as extra seating. Room dividers aren’t just for large spaces. Studio apartments tend to be on the smaller side but a room divider that provides a little privacy for your sleeping quarters is a must! I love this open bookcase that allows for TV placement on one side and storage on the bed side. Or how about this clever cabinet and glass window to define the kitchen from the entry? Screens are another great way to separate spaces like these colored screens hung from the ceiling.
A sculptural bookcase is artsy and practical. Fill it up with stuff or leave it blank. It always makes a statement. So here’s your take away… walls aren’t the only way to divide up space. Keep it low transparent or both and one space will become two! Thanks for watching this little design tip. We’ll have lots more design tips coming soon so don’t forget to subscribe!

Minimalist Bedroom Decor | Need It
March 30, 2019
(yawning) – I just had the best sleep of my life. Okay, let’s get started! This desk is everything I never knew I always needed. Oh my gosh, it folds up and down, and then it still has the ledge? This is amazing! Oh, it looks so pretty on my wall! Yep, this is perfect. Nice, good job, Courtney. And I guess I can get some work done now.
Or coffee. This table is from SoBuy, and I got mine for $46. Okay, I think it goes like this. How did I get this wrapped up in a cord? Also, why is this cord so long? Just place it, and turn it on. It’s beautiful. I never saw a light bulb in a cage before, but you know, I think I dig it. Yep, this will work. You can get this at Color Cord Company for about $47 in different colors, and they even have different kinds of bulbs. And I’m already becoming more productive with my minimalist bedroom. I learned how to balance a planter on my head. Just kidding. I feel like these are really going to make me look like an accomplished human. Look at that, I bought a cactus. I am officially becoming my mother.
I shall name him Ferdinand, and he will be my Ferdinand, and he will make my tea minty. And I bought the different sizes from West Elm in black and white, perfect for staggering them on my walls. And now, my new mirror from Urban Outfitters. Oh, it’s slim, maybe it’s a slimming mirror. Maybe if I angle it enough, it can be a slimming mirror. I can hang things on it. I can put this here or here, here? Where’s that bag I got for Christmas? Or a scarf, do I own a scarf? Look at me! Yeah, I like this. I will place this here. Okay, art, art ties everything together, right? Are these straight? No. Okay, perfect, I even have a nice little theme going on. Picture of the ocean, quote about washing my worries away. I was able to buy the dowel from Urban Outfitters, and I bought the prints on Etsy. They had so many designs, it was so hard to choose from, but I narrowed it down to two, took them to Staples, and they printed them nice and easy for me. A quote, a picture… I look like I just decorated off of Pinterest.
For the first time every, I actually really love my room! God, I’m good. And it’s time for a nap. See you later, guys. .

Interior Design Tips: Top 3 designer approved IKEA products
March 24, 2019
When I’m shopping for furniture for my clients I’m always always working with a very specific budget in mind but one of my favorite things to mix together are high-priced pieces with some very affordable pieces. And IKEA is the perfect place to shop. This isn’t a paid promotion for IKEA. I like most of you just love their stuff. So my top three favorite IKEA products are on this list because they are great design, versatile, and of course, affordable. The perfect trifecta. Let’s go shopping! Number three on my list of faves from Ikea is the Knodd. Yes it’s a garbage pail. I love the look of this garbage pail in either white or black. It’s perfect for paper recycling under any Home Office desk but it’s so much more than that. How about using the Knodd pail as a planter. It comes in two different sizes. Or how about a great firewood pail? I love how the handles have been upgraded here. Now that’s an IKEA hack that I’m loving. Number two on my list is the Alex drawer unit.
It comes in a variety of sizes, white and gray, and you can have casters like this. I especially love the no hardware drawer fronts! Just a cutout. It’s a versatile cabinet that has a modern and clean look. The Alex is the perfect storage cabinet for craft rooms or artist studios. The thin drawers are great to store paint, paper and all sorts of supplies. You can easily incorporate the Alex cabinets into a work island or peninsula like this.
It’s so great to have storage under large work surfaces. This would be great for a creative studio office or craft room or wrapping room. Martha Stewart would be very proud. And my number one, I love, love, love the IKEA PS cabinet. It comes in white, blue and red but I’m loving the white. It’s a metal cabinet with a soft industrial look. Side by side they offer tons of storage and a great surface to showcase some lighting.
And having that gallery wall above is so very cool. It’s the perfect sideboard in any room. You can even use it in your bedroom like this. I love a great big night stand and the PS Cabinet is the perfect height next to your bed. And of course, it’s great as a media cabinet under your TV! So there you have it… my top three IKEA products that I love because 1) they’re great design, 2) versatile and 3) affordable. Mix them up with other great pieces and you’ll have an eclectic mix of furniture in your home.
