From Katrine Martensen-Larsen comes this amazing house schemed for a family of seven. We hope this post will come in handy for those of you looking for fresh ideas for the kids rooms also. The “Charming Villa” is located in Frederiksber, Denmark and was especially decorated for a family of seven. The designer conditioned that this home is “proof that many kids and a frantic lifestyle, does not mean you have to compromise on style.” The interior design features original and fresh decorating ideas. The wallpapers are particularly interesting. White is used predominately clarifying the home giving it a homey, clean and fresh feel. Bits of color are appended here and there cheering up the whole design. We actually enjoy how the earnest, more sober rooms alternate with the playful ones.-via Digs Digs
Now that spring is here, so many plans swirling about in my head for “garden getaways” in our yard. Too many ideas. Truly, it can be kind of overwhelming to be me somedays, haha (anyone else overwhelm themselves with all the ideas and possibilities? Yes? No?). But like all innovation and grand plans, it can take time to dream up and implement the ideas that make the most sense.
In our yard, we directed my “big dreams” by focusing on one “zone” at a time (see my post on how to design a backyard). See the backyard transformation here. Zeroing in on designing one unusual area can be a way to stretch the budget and resources as well as a way to help focus notice on one project at a time.
Just as I enjoy designing comfortable destination interior, I find outdoor extent can be designed in much the same way. Design elements, furniture, and architectural sections can help to define a space and draw you in to a special destination within a yard, garden or patio.
