Furniture is the most important thing that shows the class, style and dignity of the house. Hence nobody likes to compromise on the furniture normally.

What exactly is a mudroom you ask? Well, a mudroom is a place in the house to just unload.

Check out some of these easy to do and unique mudroom ideas!
1. Create Cubbies.
If there’s just two of your in the house or five, cubbies are greatly needed for organization. If everyone in the family has their own personal space, then nothing is lost, cluttered or caught in the shuffle. Add a hook to hang up bags and a
When describing the dream home, we each have in mind our own ideas and designs. We are all unique and different and this is why each person envisions a space differently. Some people like to keep things simple and classical while others prefer a more adventurous solution. This has sometimes resulted in the creation of some very unusual and intriguing homes. Here are just a few examples:
The World’s Skinniest House.
We’re going to start with the world’s slimmest home. Known as the Keret House, this space is used as artist’s residence. The artist lives here a few days a week and, given the size and structure of this space, it can’t really be considered a full-time residence. Th
Whether you’re a cat person or a dog person, the most important thing is to make sure your furry friend is happy. Taking care of a pet is easy but you have to take into consideration certain needs that your pet has. For example, I’m sure that your dog or cat would love to have a little bed of their own. It’s something that benefits both you and your pet. Here are a few ideas that you could use as inspiration for your next DIY project.
A lovely idea of a bed for either a cat or a small dog would be to use an old table and to give it a makeover. Take the table and place it upside down. Then use some wood to build the headboard and if you want you can also make some feet what the s
There are so many great uses for old windows, shutters and … doors! From the hallway to the kitchen to your own bedroom, you can use repurposed doors for a lot of different accessorizing needs.

There are lots of myths that we believe to be true and that we’ve heard from our parents or from someone else and passed onto our friends and children. But while doing so, we didn’t bother to check if those are actually true. As it turns out, some of the most common household myths were just innocent mistakes past from one person to another.
1. The sun doesn’t harm wet plants.
A lot of people seem to think that wet plants absorb sun better and that the water droplets magnify its power thus burning the plants. That’s actually not true at all. As it seems logical, the water helps the plants as opposed to harming them. This is just a myth that was exacerbated for all the wrong rea
Sadly, this holiday season is tainted with the tragedy that took place in Connecticut. All of my deepest, DEEPEST condolences go out to the families, friends, and neighbors or the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. In all of the chaos of the holidays, be sure to take at the very least a moment to bask in the warmth of family, old and young, close and not so close, human and furry. It is our relationships with one another that are the true gifts.
I am so thankful for all of my readers, and I wish you all a healthy, safe, and beautiful holiday!
I plan on taking off next week, so I will be back with you after the New Year.
1. Sweet Paul, 2.-3.
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! Mine was full of yummy food and catching up with family. I got lots of lovely gifts, but I'm sure that like me, there are a few things on your list that you didn't get. Lucky for us, post-holiday sales are even more enticing than pre-holiday sales, because stores are trying to clean house before the New Year.
Now, as some of you may know, I have a weakness for those "flash sale" sites. I'm not really a big shopping fan, but I love to virtually curate my home and wardrobe from a few of these sites. Here are my latest fave's on my post-holiday shopping list:
From Joss and Main, the chronic home decorators playground:

When you have limited space or a lot of items to store it can be difficult to find places to put all of your things. Luckily, there are many places you can put shelving that you’ve probably never thought about. Below you will find the top 3 most unusual places to put shelves.
Stairs can serve more of a purpose than just going from one floor to another. Stair shelves can be easily added to the side of the staircase that is flush against the wall. You won’t miss the few inches of space that they take up and you will give yourself much needed storage instead of having wasted space. You can easily make these shelves yourself by taking one shelf and bracket, found at Home
To make this fall porch decoration, we stacked three pumpkins in a planter then adorned the pumpkins in vines, greenery, baby's breath and a few feathers.
