house of fifty magazine feature!

Hello! I'm back from a long weekend in DC, visiting my brother and his girlfriend. I'm really excited to announce that my master bedroom was featured in the brand new House of Fifty magazine! The Fall issue is out today, and it is really fantastic - lots of color and pattern, which is my favorite. Please go here to check out the whole issue, and my room is on page 15.

My bedroom (well, before I recently painted over it!) is in an article about wall stencils - one of my favorite tricks o' the trade. My handmade "Moroccan" stencil is on display in this issue - thanks to Ms. Lakeitha for a great write-up!

Later in this issue, there is a little more inspiration from me in in the article by Danielle Oakey on "How To Create a Beautiful Room on a Budget". Danielle used the same marbled paper art poster that I used in my house in the bedroom!

  1. Thanks for the shout out on HOF today! Your custom stencil is gorgeous and loved featuring your bedroom, and your DIY art project using the marbled paper is ingenious. I predict a few more people will try it! Janell

  7. megan james - marbled art was from the paper source - i got it several months ago, but as far as i can tell, you can still buy it.

    lisa - thanks...but that is really old, and it's moved on, haha!

  10. I am thinking that a small sheet of marbled art paper could be blown into poster size at a reproduction store or Kinkos.

    lots of possibilities!
