Here are some other ideas: accenting an alcove behind the bed, a picture frame headboard with wallpaper applied directly to the glass, and a faux padded headboard you can easily put up and take down. This last suggestion is great for renters or college students who want to personalize their dorm space.

When I was a girl I thought the best bed in the world would be one of those great big four posters with curtains that actually close. Now that I'm an adult, while I'd still like something aesthetically pleasing, I'm just happy with comfortable.

One Last Idea-great idea to use the same wallpaper in the dining area as backsplash in the kitchen, Yanic. No need to cover with glass for protection though if the product is cleanable. Here's some examples of faux glass mosaic tile backsplash but any design would be suitable as long as cleanable. The pictures show before and after of a laundry room, teal mosaic in a bath and even an adventurous hot pink mosaic in a kitchen.

That battery rack is ingenious. Here are a couple of additional suggestions. I always put any leftover paint in the closet of the room where it was used. That way, any need for touch-ups makes matching the color easy. Years ago a friend told me about using empty egg cartons to store jewelry. Now it's easy to find earrings, rings, enhancers, etc. Can even store them according to color. I also hang clothes in closets according to color and article: suits are separated into jackets, pants, and skirts and not hung together as an ensemble. Did I mention that I'm a Scorpio and a control freak?

my grandpa had an organizer for nails and such in the garage that fascinated me. it was a rack with baby food jars with the lids nailed on strips of wood. the rack was on the ceiling, but when unlatched on one end and lowered,all the jars turned so you could access them easily. brilliant.I've wanted to do this in a laundry room, basement,craft room,whatever, for sure the garage. it would work with bigger caning jars I'm sure.

If you are renting and can't change the paint color, you do have another option with wallcovering which can be removed without damaging the wall surface and can even be re-purposed in another location. Use it to cover an entire wall, just an accent wall, or just a few individual stripes added to the wall.

If you live in the same home long enough, it naturally evolves as your needs and wants change. Once the "essentials" are determined and accomplished, you can always tinker with the rest over time. I've lived in my home for half a century and both of us are still evolving. Hmm, should I paint that wood paneling in the living room or not? The room is 2 stories high, would require scaffolding erected with care not to damage cork floors, and require a ton of paint and cost a fortune. Just writing that sentence settled my prioritization. Nope, better leave that project to the next owner.

Great timing for this article, just what I needed. My husband convinced me to move into a fixer upper instead of a turn key home. I have regretted it ever since. We moved in in June and my husband started on a few projects. His skills aren't what I thought they would be. Nothing gets finished. Our budget was ok and then my husband got sick. Now I'm living in a construction zone and trying to make ends meet. One day at a time. Things will get better.

GIFTS WE REALLY NEED

The only gifts
We really need
Are what
Mother Nature brings.

Air to breathe,
A meal to eat,
A place to sleep
As well.
A place in which to dwell.

Clothing,
For my back.

A smile so
Of which I lack.

And beauty fair to see.

Love perhaps from thee.


Beyond that
There’s little else,

Else that I do need.

And often come
But
Others things.

To which,
I pay,
No heed.

Hey, Becky, received so many "likes" on comment that I've been returning to your ideabook and gazing at pictures again. # 1 in the morning or #9 in the evening are places I would gravitate to and read a delightful cookbook (yes, cookbooks are fun to read, especially if like this one or Julia's-and you all know HER last name) Saucepans and the Single Girl which includes chapters with titles such as Deadly Little Dinners, Food Fit For A... Amorous Athlete, Man with a Method, etc. gwnorth's picture reminded me of the nook where I stretch out to read when visiting my daughter. It's a serene location looking out on her garden and listening to the soothing sounds of the fountain there. I don't read for very long.

Yellow, like any color can be tricky. Be sure to view samples where you want to use it during daylight and at night to determine the best hue. The faux padded harlequin in beeswax yellow appears much more vibrant in the first picture than in the second with the neutral slipcovered sofa. Mary Douglas Drysdale's Jefferson Yellow colorwash is intense while the muted yellow wall in the last picture is a perfect foil for Kristin Nicholas' vibrant Garden Birds panel

I would add a ninth idea except it rarely happens: “They see how the design worked out and learn from it”. Steward Brand’s excellent book, How Buildings Learn, talks at length about how architects rarely if ever actually evaluate the use of a building once completed much to the chagrin of those that have to live and/or work in the buildings. Similar points in Michael Pollan’s also excellent book, A Place of My Own

Indoor shutters are BIG dust catchers. I replaced all of mine on closets several years ago. On the other hand, living in the south, exterior shutters are just a way of life. Unfortunately, many people just add the fixed nail-in-place kind to windows for ornamentation. I know they are more economical but are useless if facing a hurricane force wind or if you want to add extra security for a vacation home. So please, if you're going to use shutters, invest in the functional ones. Here's a picture of my still shuttered house after Katrina.

Eric, such a useful ideabook. Like many others, I never understood the use of fake shutters when you can have operable ones by choosing the right size and adding hardware.

We are about to install shutters on two windows facing the frontyard, mostly for security reasons. I'm still torn between several designs, but tend towards some of those "elaborately filigreed" ones that would add a cheerful (but not too cheerful!) touch to our Bauhaus-like atrium bungalow.

You can surmise, from our logo, that we are very fond on butterflies and feature their metamorphosis from a caterpillar on our website. We even have butterfly wallcovering.
I have a fountain as a feature in a small garden. I can watch all the activity it has from my desk. During the summer I enjoy birds, bees, butterflies and even 4-legged critters.

Yup, that's a great book, as is the new one he went in on with Rick Darke. Oaks are awesome, yes, most everywhere, but out here in the Plains PRAIRIE is awesome -- forbs and grasses host a diversity of species, and some native insects literally can't get along without them. :)

Nice article, thank you. I am considering where I might place some milkweed in my flower gardens. I do have a butterfly bush that I am planning to remove. The buddleia has not seemed to have been very invasive here, but I know that they have become very problematic in nearby areas. It seems the best things to avoid the probability that it will become a problem. I have not noticed that my oak tree has been particularly attractive to insects, but I will pay closer attention in future seasons. I love the butterflies and birds and I intend to follow many of the bits of advice here to make my gardens more attractive to them in the future.

All excellent tips, Laura. I'd like to comment on two. "Get a sample and live with it". By all means and move that sample around the room if you are considering all walls. That's easy to do if it's the type you can remove. Look at it at different times of the day and night with ambient light. Secondly, "Explore all of your wall covering options." I would add wallcovering that does not require glue, paste or a professional paper hanger to install and can be repositioned, removed without leaving a residue behind and can be reused. Also, remember that wallcovering isn't just for walls. Consider using on furniture, a screen, as a backsplash, as stair risers, or as bookcase liners.

Custom Color and Art
An important point made in the article is putting up a sample and living with it. Seeing it at different times of day and weather, viewing it from another room, all critical to getting a feel for the pattern and color. Good article!

Aw, Becky, only you would find a excuse to fix s'mores! Never heard of National Toasted Marshmallow Day before, but I'm all for it. When the children were little we used to cheat and use chocolate covered graham crackers instead of the chocolate, which made it less messy. Umm, I'm getting a graving!

@ Jessica-following your Katrina comment and the reenactor photo, I was drawn to know more about you. You are obliviously very organized and have a great sense of humor. Hope you will share the results of your downsized condo living space with Houzzers. Advice about the books-the minute you get rid of one, you'll need it! Having said that, I keep an empty bankers box in the corner of the library and fill it with no longer needed books to donate to the symphony book fair. Must admit I've retrieved from the box more than once.

Thank you, everyone, for these great lists! I'm going to not only use them myself but for others as gift ideas. I will even go so far as to print them for our children, young adults, who are setting up their household. If there's something on the list they know they would never use, they can always strike through it, but the lists will be a great starting point. As many have, I have put some of these things in place already but others ....well, I can't wait to!
I do keep a notebook for assorted occasion cards and lots of thank you cards. There's just something extra special about getting a card in the mail. Again, thank you everyone for the many great ideas!

I've heard it's a good idea to spend the night in your guest room to get a feel for what they could experience. You might notice something that your guests may not feel comfortable mentioning, like a light coming in that could interrupt sleep or an uncomfortable bed. This can help you know what to address before they arrive.

Write down the WiFi password and leave it sitting on the bed or nightstand. Put a little night light in the bathroom so they can find it in the middle of the night. Fresh towels, bottled water, a few snack bars and pieces of fruit make them feel like they are staying in a nice little B&B.

Creative space! I would have painted the glass on the bookcases white to mimic the great office doors but that's a personal preference. Great job overall! I'm sure the homeowners love it and that's what's important.

Being a native New Orleanian, I've learned a lot from hurricanes, particularly, Katrina. Here's a synopsis. Stow large containers above counter level if possible and if below counter level, place upside down, rendering removal if flooded a lot easier than an object full of filthy water. Before evacuating, place everything in the freezer in heavy contractor bags, tie and return to freezer. Again, later removal is easier and you won't have odors penetrating freezer.

Please Phillip Solomon, ...If you have a beautiful Brownstone, it deserves much better than this. It deserves a sense of history and melding of the old with the necessary upgrades. It should have bit of quirkiness, not the mundane. If you need an example, (only an example, not exact) please watch the modern version of the Sherlock Holmes tv show called, "Elementary" on CBS. The set decoration is superb, and has many interesting ideas to use in a Brownstone.

Nice to know 17 percent of those younger than 35 said they plan to use wallpaper in the home, versus only 3 percent of people older than 65. Naturally, we don't ask our customers their age, but this just reinforces what we surmise to be the case. The survey also showed that if you’re younger than 45, you are more than twice as likely to use chevron patterns in your home than those older than 45 and we receive a lot of orders for Chic Chevron. We find that people often opt for using wallpaper in areas other than just walls: the 5th wall (ceiling), stair risers, bookcase backings, backsplash, furniture and even glass, metal and Lucite. The chevron, faux tortoiseshell and faux glass mosaic tile, especially in the teal color are some of our most popular designs. Because buyers often consider their purchase an investment, they are attracted to wallcovering that can be removed without leaving a residue on the surface and can be reused. After all, it's highly unlikely that their current abode will be their one and only home.

I have 6 different patterns of wallpaper in my own home and my Hubby and I installed them all. I buy vinyl prepasted, stripable (spelling?) wallpaper. I have removed wallpaper from 3 rooms and rewallpapered them again. They came down in big sheets. Hubby filled the holes from wall art. It is not ever a good idea to put one wallpaper on top of an old wallpaper. Homes with the best style use wallpaper.

We keep a tv in the family room, but I wouldn't dream of keeping one in a place designed for eating or sleeping--especially a kid's room! Having said that, we're not a sports family and really only use the tv for video games and online streaming sites like Netflix and Hulu.
