Over the years, I've purchased or been given many lovely bookmarks (especially since I'm known to be an avid reader). More and more, though, I'm reading ebooks, and even using bookmarks as designed seems like an imperfect way to see and show off all of my favorite designs. What are some better/other ways to display or make use of my bookmarks?
This is Offbeat Home's archive of Pinterest posts.
y manfriend and I recently downsized our bedroom. We moved our office area into our bedroom and moved our bed ( nothing else) into where the office used to be. The Bed takes up most of the room (we can't fit anything else in it)… it's more like a bednook really.
Now I need ways to make the room look more like a cozy sleeping space and less of a solitary confinement room. I've draped a scarf on the wall to make a "headboard" (it's just a mattress on the floor) but now it's got this "Old European shack in the middle of winter feel" to it.
Are you with me in the loathing of the tangle of cords that makes up the contemporary charging station? Let's doodle together and see some sweet-ass DIY options for how you can make a charging station that doesn't look like a pit of cord snakes tangled into blood-thirsty coils, waiting to strike when you reach for your smartphone.
We recently talked about updating/altering classic Mother Goose nursery rhymes on Offbeat Mama… and one rhyme in particular had me thinking about shoe-shaped houses and how interesting those might be. LO AND BEHOLD, they exist!
The last time I was over at my mom's property, she was mentioning all the different places on her property where her and her partner like to sleep. They've set up beds on just about every deck, porch, and patio surface they could find. Now that it's finally summer, I say 'TIS THE SEASON for this kind of sleeping around. So let's dream about some sleeping porches — and even one sleeping balcony, for those of us in the city.
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.
I don't know that I've ever seen a zebra print combined with this super soothing green color… the effect is simultaneously a totally relaxing but also a little bit badass. Of course it says something that this room was designed for a teenager, BUT I LOVE IT.
And wait until you see the bathroom…
