7 Ingenious DIY Designs You Can Make At Home Samuel Bernier’s Project RE_ is a playful enigma. On the one hand, there is a clear aesthetic thread that runs through each project’s final form--it’s not hard to imagine spending far too much to buy these things at a high-end boutique. On the other hand, they are all made from household objects and the steps to making them are freely available online. It seems that Bernier is at home in this enigma. Project RE_ is an academic work, part of Bernier’s graduation project at the University of Montreal.

I’ve been seeing these large Debbie Carlos prints around for years, online and at renegade. I learned that blowing up your own pictures really big can make for some great artwork from all my years watching early Trading Spaces. The 46 Most Brilliant Life Hacks Every Human Being Needs To Make Life Easier I love finding clever solutions to the little snags I come across in cooking, building, cleaning, or just about anything.

Edible Sugar Lip Scrub: Husband Approved It’s date night. Kiddies are home with the sitter and you are all dressed up with your man at dinner. He leans in for a smooch on the lips, then quickly jerks away with surprise and horror in his face. The offender?

How a Family of Four Live in a Very Small House While many of us commit to the three decades it takes to pay off a mortgage, Hari and Karl Berzins come at home ownership from a completely different viewpoint. They live in a tiny 8-by-21-foot home they built with salvaged materials in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Counting the loft space with its three feet of headroom, that’s 320 sq. ft., or about the size of most people’s master bedrooms. It might be a tiny house, but it’s paid for. “We wanted to really cut back our overhead as far as we possibly could and own what we live in outright so we have the choice to do what makes us happy,” says Hari, who works part time for a non-profit while husband Karl works as a chef.

How to Decorate with Books One of my favorite go-to cheap decor ideas is an old stack of books. I don’t usually plan around this idea, and it isn’t my focal point, but it looks great on a side table or end table, shelves, mantle, or coffee table or ottoman.

Celebrating Wildflowers - Ethics and Native Plants An idyllic setting in an alpine meadow of the Albion basin in the Wasatch Mountains. Photo by Teresa Prendusi. For many of us a field of wildflowers is one of the most beautiful experiences we can encounter in Nature. There is a deep impulse we carry from childhood into adulthood to reach out and pick a flower in a beautiful butterfly-filled meadow or along a public wooded trail lined with spring beauties, irises, or wake-robins. It is because we all carry such memories that we have devoted an entire website to Celebrating Wildflowers. Millions of people visit the public lands each year and if only a small fraction of them each picked a few flowers, soon there would be none for the rest of us to enjoy.

PIN IT UP, GIRL Our email box is literally flooded with requests for updos so here’s a fun one to get us all going! This is always a favorite for attending an event. This updo looks gorgeous on any hair color but particularly amazing with hilighted hair because it gives the hair lots of depth and dimension. For lack of a better word, I love the way it becomes “swirly”. Best thing is; it’s easy to do, gorgeous and keeps your hair out of your way for the night.

Unidentified Lifestyle by Maria Matiopoulou: things that made me smile this week This week was tough, tough in a way that the weekend felt like it would never arrive! But it did and I realized how important it is to spent some quiet time at home. I'm still in the (really slow) process of decorating our apartment and Christmas is just around the corner so I thought it was about time to go out and start writing down my Christmas lists. Saturday was dedicated to Harrods, it took a while to take my eyes off their windows but when I did I headed straight to the homeware floor. An Interior Designers heaven. I only realized how long we were there only after JohnJohn started complaining.

PNCA student creates mobile houses for homeless, called 'Bootstrap Homes' View full sizeCourtesy of Sarah CloutierThe first Bootstrap Home, made by PNCA student Sarah Cloutier, is parked in Southeast Portland and is currently occupied by Cloutier's fellow student, Avery Gilbert. Sarah Cloutier’s idea came from a dream. From it, the 27-year-old Pacific Northwest College of Art student knew what she would do for her yearlong, senior project: “I woke up with this idea for modular housing, constructed by the people who lived in it that would work for people who had inadequate housing.” And so began her quest to create what she calls Bootstrap Homes — trailers just big enough to fit one person lying down and provide shelter and storage for those facing homelessness.
