Kirsten, over at 6th Street Design School blog, just finished the cutest makeover for her son, Jett. Her son’s name, and husband’s full time job as a pilot, gave way to the perfect aviation theme for the space; from the wall decals, model airplanes, clustered globes and paper plane garland strung across the ceiling, all of the details are adorable.
But Kirsten confides that she didn’t start out with a jet theme in mind: “In designing his nursery I wanted to steer clear of the obvious airplane theme. But guess what? I just couldn’t do it. The airplanes kept calling to me. But in the end I really like how it turned out. If I would have to describe this room in 3 words they would be Adventure, Colorful and Sentimental. It is full of mementos from my husband’s childhood and even has a few items from our travels. The room is the tiniest room on the planet earth so I tried to make sure each item in it meaningful.”

Inspired by Susan Sergant’s affection for very bright colors (this is one of her patterns above), here are a few cheery room ideas that make even the dreariest of fall days a little brighter. I am not usually so bold as to paint an entire room lime green — but I must admit I’ll be stealing more than a few of these ideas for the house!
This fall, muted colors ‘pale’ in comparison to bright statement choices (I couldn’t help myself) — bold colors abound this season for the wardrobe, throughout party themes and definitely in home decor. If you’re not ready to go all in, try a few accent pieces here or there in a bright and bold hue. How great are the yellow dining room chairs in Jonathan Adler’s design (above) and the brilliantly pink foot stools (next page)?
Nine more inspiring rooms full of color to go! As well as accent pieces (such as bedding and throw pillows) that leave a similar — yet not so permanent — effect. Read more »

I really love the unique and customizable look of fabric lampshades and after posting several of my favorites last month, as well as a how-to by All Things Lovely, I decided to give the project a spin myself.
I ordered this great hand stamped block print fabric from HomeSweet on Etsy and found two replacement lampshades at a local lighting store. All I can say is easy, easy, easy! I was so impressed with how quickly I whipped both of these out, and I really love the blue with my bedroom.
