When I arrive home after a long day at work, I inhale deeply as I drop my bags at the entryway. This might be the first time I am really at peace all day. I walk past my rustic bar stools and collapse on my sofa, curling up with my fringed, thickly knotted throw blanket. Cozy in my little boho abode and surrounded by my treasures and loved ones, I am home.

DIY: Colorful Jars

The saying that "April showers bring May flowers" always rings true as Spring rains transition into bright and bold Summer foliage. The welcome of Summer has been instantaneous here in Tennessee. In fact, I am quite sure that the long Memorial Day weekend ushered in the onset of sunburns for most. My rosy sunburn was gained while tending to my garden, from which I decided to take a few flowers inside. I don't like ostentatious vases; I think the flowers should be the focus. But sometimes plain mason jars aren't enough. Here is a DIY that adds a pop of color without stealing the thunder of the floral arrangement.

Add pops of violet to the living room with DIY dip dye curtains

Color can be quite a commitment ... hair color, shirt color, room color. I find it is best to approach color with caution. In fact, I am a fan of neutrals - but they can look sterile if not executed properly. Adding touches of colors in small doses is a manageable way to introduce hues to your home. It can be an inexpensive endeavor as well if you do them yourself, so here is our dip dye curtains DIY.

The Artfully Challenged Painter: DIY Painting

Hanging art in your home can make or break your room - as well as your pocket book. If I had never-ending funds to put into finessing the aesthetic of my home, I would definitely edge toward finding the perfect painting along with the ideal furnishings. The reality is that I can't. We all have budgets to consider when about to make those larger-than-normal purchases. So the choice: a place to sit or a painting to stare at. If you are practical, like me, then you've probably chosen the sofa. But that doesn't mean your walls have to be bare. Instead, make your own painting!
