I always love to add a special hand-touch to the items I own, whether it’s my clothing, accessories, or home décor items. I’ve always thought that wood burning would be a cool and fun way to do this, and I finally tried it! I used this decorative technique three different ways, and now I can’t stop. Read on to see what I made – and how. Read more »

Post image for Leaf Wall Décor, 2 Ways

Now that the leaves are just beginning to change color where we are in Philadelphia, it’s the perfect time to bring some into home as a form of décor. What I really love about decorating with leaves is that it’s a short-lived thing. Leaves only change color for a short period of time, and once you pluck them from a tree, it’s only a matter of time before they dry up. This forces us to really appreciate every moment of beauty that these colored pieces of nature give to us. Here are two ways I love to decorate my walls with autumn tree leaves. Read more »

Post image for Home Tour: Inside Our Senior Graphic Designer’s Treasure-Filled Loft

Update: This post originally ran April 8, 2013, but we wanted to bring it back in hopes that it would offer some home decor inspiration as we move from summer to fall!

Our senior graphic designer has one of the most gorgeous homes I’ve ever visited. It’s a brightly lit loft with tremendously high ceilings, and it’s filled with treasures she’s picked up over the years. Every piece she owns seems to have its own story; a memory that brings a smile to her face – and that’s one of the main reasons her home is such a joy to be in. Read more »

If you go all (or mostly) natural with toiletries a lot of them have multi uses and you will realize you have ALOT more then needed. Go simple, save space, store them in pretty containers that become decor themselves :)

Post image for Photo Tour: Inside Our Digital Tech’s Simply Beautiful Home

When our digital tech began working here at Free People, I discovered her food blog, a Better Happier St. Sebastian, and immediately I was obsessed. Not only are her recipes to die for, there is a simple, light, crisp, and happy quality about her photos – to the point where I can’t look away. When I entered her home (where she lives with her boyfriend), it was no different. Read more »

Post image for A Pretty Update To Your Bathroom

When it comes to décor, I think that no area of the home should go unacknowledged – and that includes your shower. A while back I did a post on creating a desirable shower space, and one of my tips was to transfer all beauty products into beautiful glass bottles to evoke simplicity and steer away from the cluttered look of commercialized product bottles. Today I want to take that concept one step further. Read more »

Beautiful, glass and fresh flowers always more luxurious. The only problem is that glass is not that safe to use in the bathroom.

A teepee? Really? this is a little insensitive to aboriginal culture isn't it?

Post image for 3 Ways To Use Antique Window Panes

Old window panes make beautiful decorations. I love hanging them up on my wall because, even though they don’t actually allow you to see outside, they remind me of peering into or out of a beautiful little cottage surrounded by overgrown gardens. I recently acquired a bunch of antique window panes from a friend who works on houses, and I thought it would be the perfect opportunity for me to try out some cool ways to use them. Read more »

So good idea. I have had one window at home and thinking what am I to do with it. Thank you :-)

When you say regular paper for the photos, do you mean just standard photo paper or actual writing paper? I really like this idea and want to try it, but I want to make sure I do it correctly.:)
