Before & After: Day Bed Makeover

Before & After: Colorful Day Bed 2

Here’s a neat little Before & After project that I love. Design*Sponge reader, Kate Pollmann, salvaged a vintage 50s day bed {a gift from her Grandmother} by giving it a beautiful face lift. She repainted the frame white, reupholstered the cushions and added fabric inserts to the lattice back and sides. It’s beautiful!

Love the colors? Me too! Here are a few more throw pillow finds that fit right in line with this makeover:

Friday Guest Blog Interview: Style Me Pretty!

Style Me Pretty Guest Blog Interview

If you love weddings and fabulous decor, than surely you know Style Me Pretty — just quite possibly the most popular, sought-after sight for brides and decorating mavens alike.

Style Me Pretty is your one stop look book for incredible wedding-inspired design (dresses, invitations, centerpieces…) as well as submitted wedding features of some of the most fabulous weddings that take place each year. I find myself pouring through post after post for hours, delving up delicious ideas for a new color scheme (how can I find a way to use tangerine…), how to casually incorporate vintage (a delicate lace table runner, a ruffled pillow), a clever name card (was that a tea bag?) or stunning centerpiece I must try (coffee beans and lotus pods, stacked hardcover books, vintage bottles…).

If design + beautiful is your language, you will love Abby’s (founder and editor) incredible sense of style and daily inspiration at Style Me Pretty; whether it’s for your next dinner party, design you can transfer to the home, or perhaps even for your wedding.

Rustic elegance, Hollywood glam, modern & edgy — you name it and Abby has brilliantly showcased, designed or delivered on such an entertainers wish. And Abby is the sweetest! Despite her wedding empire, which includes a series of stellar blogs (3 million monthly page views and a brag-worthy Google page ranking of 6 — yes, that is a wedding empire),  she’s a friendly, down-to-earth blogger (all you fellow entrepreneurs/Curious Georges – check out Backstage!) with one basic backbone to her business: to share about all things beautiful.

… and so I was incredibly excited to ask her our four PDB questions! You will love the answers and eye-candy. Continue reading
