English literature. If you were one of those English lit groupies in high school, here is a project for you. Honor a favorite literature passage by stenciling it in overscale print on a wall. This looks great for family rooms or bedrooms. This idea will personalize a space and show your English-student pride.
Hallways are a perfect place for a library. Add a great rug and don't forget the stepladder for those books on the top shelf.

In back, the black countertops are of Richlite, a recycled paper product.

Garlic may be the most useful bulb you can have in your garden. Plant garlic bulbs on the outer edges of your vegetable plot (leaving room for plantings throughout the spring and summer) and you will be rewarded with gracefully curving, edible seed heads (called garlic scapes). Once the leaves yellow, the bulb can be dug up, dried and used for cooking. Homegrown garlic is juicier than the store-bought variety, and you can choose from numerous heirloom options in different colors and sizes.
Lighten up with the perfect white wall color. Using lots of white is a great way to open up a space and make the most of the light — but it can be surprisingly hard to choose just the right shade. All the walls and ceilings in the space featured here were done in White Dove from Benjamin Moore, a clean and crisp white that looks great in natural light.
Recipe for a charming kitchen. If renovating is in your future, consider adding a revamped vintage or vintage-look stove and a classic farmhouse sink to the mix. A small chalkboard is an affordable accent anyone can add, perfect for keeping a running grocery list or menu ideas handy.
Budget finds for your farm-inspired makeover. Farmhouse classics, like barn lights, painted cupboards and butcher block counters, are warm, authentic and extremely affordable. Repaint existing cupboards to save even more money, and if the floors are looking shabby, paint them or cheer them up with a colorful braided rag rug.
There is something so comforting about the clatter of pots in an overhead rack — and this setup is a great space saver, to boot.
Make kitchen essentials part of the decor. Glass storage jars and wooden boards on a rusted metal cart are an easy way to add a genuinely useful touch of the farm to even a city apartment.

A wood bucket filled with logs at the front door adds a rustic, wintry touch to a home's curb appeal, saying, "Come on in; there's a warm fire blazing inside."
