Marker Girl Monday – Just Add Sprinkles

Picture-210-300x408Curly Girl Design

It is the little things we should be proud of we tend to shrug off.  That has been the case for me recently. I was ask last week “Had I reached my goals that I had set so far this year?” I listed all I had done in an almost apologetic way, since I was comparing myself to others around me. After stating all of the little things I realized, wow I have done a lot and there was absolutely no reason to apologize.

When you look at your home or something about yourself and wanting to make a change. Are you apologizing that you have not done it fully? If you are? Start making  little sprinkles of change here and there. They will start to add up to a big change. Sharing with you a few sprinkles you can add to your home to make a big change.

Tackle a powder room first to create a wow statement not a large bathroom remodel if you want a big change but don’t have the budget for a full bath remodel.

Marker Girl Makeover – Brighten Up

The client wanted to brighten up her Guest Room. So we did just that – out with the old leftover furniture that most guest bedroom’s inherit, and in with updated and fun pieces.

To achieve this look we started with color on the wall Sherwin Williams Rustic Adobe. Lighter furniture and an upholstered headboard softens the room. With pops of color and pattern in the artwork over the bed adding some fun elements, mixed with complementary apple green ceramic lamps. Drapery panels hung higher than the window (to hide the builders decision to put in in standard height windows in a higher ceiling room). The room wasn’t really big, but we were able to add a small reading chair in the corner. Gives it that warm and friendly touch. 


I think this room is happier… don’t you!

Happy Everything! Karen
