Pinterest Fab 4: Bookcases and Bright Vases

I love finding great roundups on Pinterest. That way, when I start a design project, someone else has done all the hunting and gathering for me and I can draw inspiration from one or all of the things they’ve collected. I found two really cool roundups for today that will have you itching to redesign your living room this weekend. 1. This roundup from The Lennox is great because it not only tells you how to decorate a bookcase, but it features beautiful photos of bookshelves styled by leading designers.

Covering an old home’s windows with woven woods

Here’s a juicy confession:  while I work at Blinds.com and love seeing all of our customers’ window transformations, I have secretly been holding out on a few windows in my own home.And it’s not because I don’t love our products.  I’m just in love with our old school cylinder glass windows.  You know the kind you might have seen at your grandparent’s home that look a little wavy and smeary when you look outside?  Let’s just say I got a little over-protective on what would cover those panes.
