This tiny but highly sophisticated studio apartment in the East Village of NYC has made us very proud, thanks to JPDA . Not only was it built as a super efficient multi-functional unit but with the use of detailed mill work, the storage capacity was very cleverly executed and resulted in a super stylish studio with a decent amount of floor space. Shouldn’t all NYC dwellers aim to live like this? You decide… A schematic rendering demonstrates a realistic plan for this tiny apartment.
In this instructable I will show you how to make an INDOOR storm window that will keep plenty of cold out of a room, while letting light continue to come in. My version uses less than $4 worth of supplies, mostly from the DOLLAR TREE store. THE STORY :) I moved into an apartment on the 3rd floor. all windows were single pane. The building was built in about 1970, so there was poor insulation, and only single pane sliding glass windows. It was very cold the first night and the pipes nearly froze in the bathroom. the window rattled and I knew I was in trouble. By creating my bubble wrap storm window, I was able to raise the temperature in the room 15 degrees F in the first hour.

Decorating with wall murals ABOVE: Add a touch of elegance to a glam bedroom with chandeliers painted on the wall above the bed. ABOVE and LEFT: A simple black design on a white wall in this dining room makes a dramatic statement. At first glance you might think that this is wallpaper, but upon closer inspection this truly inspiring design is a hand painted mural. The black branches with birds painted on a white background make for a very interesting atmosphere.
I know I say this every time, but I am so excited about this project! The possibilities are endless! And they are so easy – I am going to have baskets hanging all around my house in a weeks time.
A Modern Take on the Doily $850 Lamp for less than $50? Yes Please! Hello Pretty people! We are so excited to share a project we did this past weekend. A few months ago, I came across a ceiling lamp, I absolutely loved.
Here is a simple yet stylish photo frame that can accomodate quite many photos at once. The idea is very simple. Fasten twines on the empty frame and hang photos using clothes pins on them.
Spray paint is such an amazing tool. It can spruce up just about anything in a quick, easy, inexpensive way. I've used it on several projects lately and wanted to show you what a difference a little spray paint can make. These are probably some of the easiest DIYs I've done. This is the "before" of my salt and pepper shakers.
As far as the backyard garden at casa de radmegan goes, most of my vegetables have ceased production for the season. The pitchers on my carnivorous plants are browning. My sweet little alien-like conophytums and lithops were covered up last week to protect against too much rain. On the whole, my garden has closed up shop for the winter. I'm not a person who enjoys being told what to do (you're not the boss of me Mother Nature!!), so I defiantly brought a little piece of outdoor gardening inside and plopped it right down on the table.
Inspired by Annette's Modern DIY Outdoor Planter post , Apartment Therapy reader Chris shows us all how easy this project was to recreate... Thank you for your post on Annette's modern DIY outdoor planter . I immediately went to Home Depot to replicate it in my barren back patio. Since the patio was not even remotely level, I had to pour a concrete footing for the blocks. The total cost of the project (supplies, soil, plants) was under $200.
In the late 1980s, NASA and the Associated Landscape Contractors of America studied houseplants as a way to purify the air in space facilities. They found several plants that filter out common volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Lucky for us the plants can also help clean indoor air on Earth, which is typically far more polluted than outdoor air. Other studies have since been published in the Journal of American Society of Horticultural Science further proving the science . Here's our handy of list of the best air-filtering plants.
