The Quick Fix: Beth of Design Post

Decor "Quick Fix": 3 words to use when styling

Hi, friends. Welcome back, come on in, have a seat and get comfy for another round in the decor “Quick Fix” series. My friend and fellow designer Beth of Design Post Interiors is here to share her “Quick Fix” with us this fine Thursday morning.

(Side note, it’s actually a pretty terrible looking morning from my vantage point. Snow, ice, freezing temps? Blech. At least there’s good stuff here to keep me distracted.)

How to do I even properly introduce Beth? Well, let’s just say that if we lived in the same city I’d probably want to chat and have coffee and work with her.

Every. Single. Day.

How to Keep a Fiddle Leaf Fig Alive (& Happy)

How to keep a fiddle leaf fig alive (& happy) | Decor FixTREE ENVY & A BOTANICAL MIRACLE
I had fiddle leaf fig tree envy for years. Every gorgeous interior shot in Domino and all the legit designers have fiddle leaf figs. They just scream, “Oh yeah. This room is so awesome that a giant plant just lives here 24/7.”

I wanted one. Bad.

I was pained by my inability to even grow an herb. All those majestic fiddle leafs in the pictures just mocked me. Fast forward a few years and miracle of all miracles, I’ve somehow kept mine alive almost almost two years.[Read More]

Recent Project & Creating A Style Guide

E-Decor by Heather FreemanHave you ever bought something on a whim and regretted it within the first 5 minutes of bringing it home? Yep, we all have. (And if you haven’t, we really don’t want to hear about it.)

This has usually happened to me when the words “Clearance” or “Biggest Sale Ever” were involved.

Or when I was on a deadline to get my house guest-ready.

If you’re tackling several rooms at once or have recently moved, you’re even more vulnerable to the temptation to buy on a whim because empty rooms can make you do crazy things. On the other hand, it can be REALLY overwhelming trying to approach every room from scratch, and you might be frozen in what I call purchasing paralysis.

As in, “Please just pass me the chocolate and I can’t even deal with this” kind of paralysis.

Today I’m sharing a way to help you avoid some stress and resist impulse buys for your home. I’m also giving you guys a sneak peak of the beginning stages of a local project that’s wrapping up soon.[Read More]
