So, I have been inspired to create an art studio for my girls. They have watched me work over the years and all my “creativity” has rubbed off on them. So, being the awesome mother I am, I am going to give them their own space. OK, I’ll admit, it is more for me than them because, I WANT MY OFFICE/SPACE BACK! I said it! Call me selfish if you want, but my babies have taken over.
Here are a few ideas, I have gathered from #Pinterest. Let me know which one is your favorite. 🙂
Let me know which one you love and why, please. Looking forward to hearing what YOU have to say! – Cute Beltz
I’m inspired!! Yes, the Pinterest bug has got me again, but this time, I will not attempt this project, I will hire a professional! I love birthday’s and what better way to celebrate, than with a fabulous themed birthday cake. Checkout these cool ideas.
Dr. Seuss is a definite favorite and this cake illustrates a few of our favorite Dr. Seuss stories.
Who doesn’t love a minion from Despicable Me. Not only is the franchise totally awesome, this cake is fun.
This is technically not a “cake”, but we had to include these super cute cupcakes. Little Monster cupcakes are so much fun and easy to serve. 🙂
Totally, LOVE!! All the superheros represented, can’t go wrong with Superman, Batman, the Hulk and Spiderman.
Birthday’s are always so special and I do my best as a mom to make it special for my girls. The last themed cake was Lalaloopsy, Mint E. Stripes, which was a huge hit!
I’m always excited to see Friday because I know that somewhere during the weekend a little bit of rest is waiting for me! 🙂 Being a mother, it does not always afford you the time to yourself, but as my children get older and become more self-sufficient, momma gets a little time to herself (BIG smile).
Hope your weekend is filled with happiness and a little quiet time. – Cute Beltz
Incorporating bright colors and fun patterns into your home can be a perfect way to prepare for the upcoming warmer weather. It also brings excitement, energy, and movement to the room and all the designers are crazy about it. Experts say that typically, you should have at least 3 different patterns going on in one space to make it interesting.
Stick with a color scheme
The safe way to experiment with patterns is to choose a color scheme. Selecting a common color palette can go a long way in coordinating patterns. Stick with similar hues to draw your eye to the color – not the varying patterns. However, this doesn’t mean all of your colors have to be the same hue. Try out multi-colored fabrics, but use a color that is similar throughout all the patterns for a cohesive look. In order to make an effect, you have to use at least three different patterns. If you have too many competing patterns, it confuses the eye and can make your space seem cluttered. The successful way of mixing is to vary the patterns’ scale skillfully – from small to large. Save the large-scale pattern for the focal point of the room, such as wallpaper or patterned curtains.
Mix big and small prints
It’s impossible to make a mess of mixing large, medium, and small-scale patterns when you stick with a subdued palette, like the grays and yellows here. A unifying color theme keeps even florals, stripes, plaids, and geometric patterns in harmony.
The Role of Fabrics
Fabric also plays an important role in the venture of mixing and matching the patterns. The feel of fabrics helps making the ideal mixing recipe for a pattern-loaded room. In fact, adding some textures is a very effective and nice option to enhance the patterns’ effects. The fabric “package” will almost always include a stripe or plaid, a floral and a couple of solids. Use those prepackaged coordinating prints as a learning tool to see why the mix works, then go out and make your own combination.
