Apartment Therapy Unplggd. My parents are not what I would call "high tech" — or really even any tech. My dad only recently started texting and my mom doesn't own a computer, but they often run into technological quandaries despite their lack of gadgets — which means it often falls to me to help them out. It's easy to grow impatient and frustrated when providing a little parental tech support, so I thought I'd round up some advice from people who have been there. Interior Design Blogs.

Big breaks on this blog always coincide with major life changes like having babies. This time around it's a career change and moving to another time zone! Here's the deal. For almost two decades, I've worked as designer, Design Editor, and eventually Design Director in the newspaper industry. My roles have encompassed designing pages (oh, so many pages!) During this time I discovered memory keeping. A big, bright light bulb went off.

Well, it's happening. I put my notice in at the newspaper; it wasn't easy. In a few weeks, Jim and I are packing up the girls and the house heading due west to Kentucky. Here's to new adventures! Decorology. Dwellinggawker. How About Orange. Mission accomplished!

How About Orange

The antique spinach dip tile on the dining room fireplace has been successfully disguised with removable panels. Apologies, Rookwood fans. But don't despair. If someday you buy this house from us, you can pull off these sheets of embossed thermoplastic and the spinach dip will be yours to enjoy. Yum. I used Fasade backsplash sheets for this makeover, which I first saw in a rack at Home Depot. Fasade panels come in different sizes for walls, ceilings, and backsplashes in a variety of finishes and designs: modern, traditional, and industrial. I measured the swatches and determined that each repeat is a 3" square. Supplies included a cutting mat, utility knife, ruler (this plastic quilting one didn't slide around as much as my metal cork-backed one), tape measure, kitchen scissors for trimming off extra bits, and a Sharpie.

Each panel is covered with a protective plastic film you remove at the end of the job. Tedious but worth it. So much better! Collectors Weekly. Creature Comforts. Design is mine. Decor8. {frolic!} Tiny victorian cottage « Sharona Design.

Sandra Foster turned a Catskills hunting cabin into the romantic Victorian cottage she had always wanted, using vintage columns, flooring and wavy glass windows, and doing the carpentry herself. This cottage is only accessible via a stone crossing over a stream. La cabaña más pequeña y adorable del mundo. Sandra Foster transformó una cabina de caza en la cabaña que ella había querido siempre usando columnas vintage, suelos y ventanas de cristal ondulado y haciendo los trabajos de carpintería ella misma.
