Post image for Handmade Houses: An Interview With Richard Olsen

I’m a product of parents who lived the life of handmade. Houses, food, gardens… I’m surprised we even had a car growing up and not some recycled Fred Flinstone mobile that promoted good health whilst on the go. Handmade (in all nature) is of immediate interest, and most certainly when it comes to homes. I’m instantly entranced. My love for exteriors/interiors and the brains behind them go far beyond fascination. Best described as an unfounded respect and awe for individuals that stepped outside of the trained parameters, to create unique spaces and structures that were both kind on mind, body, and earth. It’s art, in its truest form… art that one can live within and amongst. Read more »

Louise - We use a Canon 5D MkII, usually with a 50mm lens. We do a lot of editing in Photoshop, too :)
Louise -Oct 27, 2013, 10:27AM
Totally copy-and-pasting this around to all the FB bloggers, in hopes of a reply! I have a question I’ve been meaning to ask the FP blogger (or anyone else who’d like to help me out), I love the style of photography you all have, and am just wondering what cameras you all use? I’m hoping to get a proper camera, and love the arty side of photography, but am hopeless at understanding the technological side. If you could let me know, I’d be so grateful. (If your sugesstions turn out to fit my price range I’d be even more grateful!!)

Post image for Fun Ideas For Storing Makeup Brushes

If you wear makeup, you probably own a few makeup brushes. Maybe you keep them neatly tucked away in a brush case; maybe they’re kept on top of a vanity table for easy access; maybe they’re thrown in the nearest drawer to get them out of the way. If you have the urge to change up your storing situation, here’s some inspiration! These methods can also be used for storing other items like pens, pencils, and paint brushes :). Read more »

I recycle tea tins and jam jars for organizing most things in my house - pens, buttons, paper clips, make-up brushes, cotton balls, etc. Coffee tins are especially great for loose change. I'm always on the look out for unique tea tins or collectable Nutella jars - I enjoy the product and then give the container a second life. Also, once cleaned, you can spruce any container up with paint or etching and give someone a "useful pot to put things in."

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 »

I show your picture .I love the idea of using leaves to create a painting-like display on the wall. It’s really easy and really fun. Just gather some leaves from outside and tape them to your wall.

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 »
