What Houzz contributors are saying:
9. Add pieces that look as if they were weathered outdoors. Another approach is to use pieces and accents that feel inspired by the garden, such as wood with a patina, woven baskets, linen and even vintage house numbers. The soft, rustic vibe naturally suits a well-worn home.
1. Kick off the weekend right. When you come home on Friday, first hide all evidence of work and other stressors. Put bills in a drawer, tuck your work bag and shoes in the closet and clear away other clutter. The goal is to be able to wake on Saturday morning to a house that feels weekend-ready, not with remnants of your undone work projects and to-do lists lying about.Next think of all of the things you would like to do over the weekend. Consider both the “have-to-do’s,” like events you are committed to attending, and basic chores that need doing, as well as “want-to-do’s,” like home projects, fun outings, hobbies and treats. It’s really easy to overestimate what can be accomplished in a single weekend — so weed out some items from your list now.
