Your Gorgeous Wall O' Goals

Making The Lists and Accomplishing All The Things are practically my favorite hobbies. 

Of course, I have a never-ending, constantly-evolving list of yearly goals, but since it's a piece of notebook paper taped to the wall, it's less than inspiring.  And while I know the rest of the Internet loves nothing so much as aspirational Pinterest accounts and vision boards, that stuff just isn't quite my style. 

Enter: Wall O' Goals.

Ephemeral walls: No-damage decor to make your walls less boring

Living in a dorm room, renting with rules against nails and paint, or just a plain old small, boxy, white walled living spaces? What is a person to do in such boring living spaces (and with very little money to decorate)? Well. I welcome you now to Pinterest — land of wishful thinking and endless creative ideas. Here's a plethora of inspiration to get you thinking, including Post-It Note decorating, the wonder of fabric, and things you might not have thought to do with your photographs.

Transform your staircase with vinyl tape

So yeah. This looks like some insanely awesome paint job, or some sort of custom acrylic installation. But these boldly colorful striped steps are actually just covered in vinyl tape by Scottish Artist Jim Lambie. Seriously. AMAZING. I'm not sure how well these steps would hold up to regular use but I'm always stoked when I see bold-but-temporary design options.

How to make temporary art

One thing really makes a place look lived-in, and that's hanging art on the wall. It takes a commitment to put a nail into plaster to hang a picture, and seeing art you've committed to hanging immediately makes you feel in control of your space.

While you're waiting for art you love to come along, you can liven up a room with your own art — or your family's! Round up the necessities, and I'll meet you in the driveway for a seriously easy step-by-step guide to making art for your home you'll be proud of.

A New Zealand dorm gets invaded

It was always one of my boyfriend's dreams to be an RA. He signed up this year and the first years move in this weekend, so we got to decorating.

Floor themes used to only consist of RA's sticking up printed posters on doors, but, as it was a competition we decided to lift the game 500%. Hope the kids like it!
