Project Tools:

  • 1 roll of wallpaper prepasted or unpasted (2 rolls+ if you are looking to alternate designs as seen in the picture above)
  • 1 can of acrylic wallcovering primer
  • 1 can of wallpaper paste/adhesive (if using unpasted wallpaper)

  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Wallpaper sponge/brush

Stairway on a luxury house interior

Before & After: Bare white stairs transformed into a lovely new décor statement

Project Directions:

  1. With your ruler, measure each stair riser separately as each stair could vary in size.
  2. Using your pencil, trace out each measurement on the back of your wallpaper and cut to size with a pair of scissors (read the wallpaper label to determine the exact pattern repeat, to ensure that each sheet remains proportional to one another).
  3. Next, wash your steps to make sure they are free of any dust or debris.
  4. Apply a thin coat of primer to each stair riser and let dry. This helps the wallpaper stick to the surface better as well as makes it easier to remove later.
  5. If you are using an unpasted wallpaper, apply a thin coat of paste to each stair. Next, press the wallpaper onto each stair riser and even into place with a smoothing tool. If you are using a prepasted wallpaper, refer to the manufacturer’s instructions on the correct booking time, and then use the same steps from above to apply.
  6. Wait until the wallpaper has completely dried, while making sure to wipe away any excess paste with a sponge.
  7. Lastly, apply a thin coat of glaze to protect your stairs from future wear and tear.

Arrange Your Shelves with Style

Mixing books with framed photos, vases, shells and sculptures is an expressive art form. Your shelves are more than just a handy place to pile books and keep electronics and clutter! They are a stage to set the tone of your space, a place to display your collections and precious memories in an attractive and organized manner. This will help bring your personality to life in the room, and give your treasures a well deserved presentation. If you have built-ins, you are lucky indeed! If not, you can get the look with a tall bookcase or a pair that match, set against the wall and painted to coordinate. Either way, adding a splash of color and pattern to the back of your shelves is a brilliant way to create a dazzling focal point for your arrangement. Below are a few of our absolute favorite looks for well appointed shelves in decor, followed by a few tips on styling your own perfect arrangement!

1. A potpourri of pretty: Each of the above shelves is completely unique but they all have one thing in common: diversity. Mix and match books with candles, shells, framed art and family photographs, small statues, curiosity items, ceramics, plants… whatever you have collected that you love! As long as you don’t overcrowd your shelves, you should be able to find a balance that showcases your style with panache!

2. Arrange, then step back… and Re-arrange: Your shelves can be an evolving art installation, changing as you acquire new things to display, or to accomodate for fun seasonal decor items, or just to refresh the look of your room! Try arranging everything, then studying the overall look before re-approaching the shelf to make final adjustments.

3. Keep a Secret Stash: be honest with yourself about the fact that some things might end up on the shelf that do not necessarily merit being on display. Most of us have a lot of stuff and might have a tendency to toss mail, remotes, receipts, trinkets, keepsakes, etc. onto our shelves. It helps to have an attractive basket or box in your display mix so that you can stash less than lovely items with ease.

Quick Bedroom Makeover: Re-Style Your Bed

Giving your bed a makeover is one of the quickest and most striking ways to update the ambiance in your bedroom without a big price tag. A well adorned bed is usually the focal point of the bedroom, and is captivating and inviting. You don’t have to get new furniture or even re-arrange your bedroom to achieve a fresh and fashionable update. You can work with what you have and add some new accents to create a layered oasis of beauty on your bed. Here are a few tips for achieving a magazine-worthy bed that you will dream about all day!

1. Layer Textures and Patterns

DIY Bedroom makeover with an updated bedding arrangement

Layers of texture and pattern give this bed a fashionable intrigue

One of the greatest ways to add a designer look to your bed is to layer textures and patterns. The bed above mixes blue and taupe stripes and damask prints with solid brown linen pillows and a chunky knit espresso throw blanket. These patterns and finishes coordinate without matching perfectly for a sophisticated beauty. Overly matchy-matchy prints or solids lose design impact, so that pillows and blankets get lost and are not noticeable. The addition of a plush knit texture with the smooth brushed cotton finish of the other elements adds an inviting layer of comfort to the bed, making it appear warm and stylish – just like the perfect cardigan finishes an outfit!

2. A Sculpture of Pillows

Is there such thing as too many pillows? We like to think more is more in the pillow department, but it really depends on your lifestyle and personality. A streamlined arrangement can be lovely too, as long as having minimal pillows attunes with the sight lines of the headboard and stylings of the space. For this look we recommend stacking at least 2 pillows in neat rows. To arrange a gorgeous assortment of decorative pillows, working in 3 rows can be a helpful guide. Place 2 or 3 (depending on the size of your bed) matching euro pillows or king sized pillows in the back. For this layer you simply cannot go wrong with crisp white shams. Then add a row of 2 pillows in a color or print to coordinate with your bed spread. For the third row,  the cherry on the top of your pillow sundae, arrange 1-3 decorative pillows in the center, and have fun with different shapes and prints.

3. Show Off Your Assets

Once you have your plans in place for layering your bed with luxurious linens and creating the perfect pillowscape, be sure to show off your work with some deliberate placement techniques. Experiment with folding back your comforter to show a peep of the pretty sheets. Be sure that your bed spread does’t go all of the way to the floor if you have a cute bed skirt to coordinate. If you have a platform bed, try tucking everything underneath the mattress for a streamlined and contemporary style. If you are adding a throw blanket, change up your look by draping it lazily over the corner one day, and then folding it for a neat accent stripe the next.
