Homestyler Design II

Saturday, April 26, 2014

I know I’ve already gone on and on about how much I love the Homestyler Design app, but I was able to upload another couple of my designs! These to are some of my favorites, and they are both master bedrooms. The first one is mainly blue and yellow, with a couple of brown and turquoise accents. I love the full height fireplace and the wall of curtains and windows. I guess I would call the design as transitional style!

Closet Painting

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

It might sound a little bit strange, but painting your closet is actually a very good idea! For the last ten years, I have had the smallest closet in my house with a wall covered in pencil marks and scratches from when I was little. When I visited a few model homes over last summer and I saw that all the closets were painted, I decided that it was time to paint my own! Not only because painting the back wall a dark color makes the closet seem deeper, but also because it just looks pretty! :) 

HGTV Home and Landscape Platinum Suite Review

Sunday, April 13, 2014

  A couple of months ago, I saw this design software in Staples, and I immediately knew that I had to have it! I did a little research online and found that it got pretty good reviews. So, I shelled out $50 from my bank account and bought the HGTV Home and Landscape Platinum Suite design software (Version 3). And let me tell you, it has some amazing features! Truly amazing! There is 2,000 item plant encyclopedia, plant growth visualization over time, home and room builder wizards, and even ways to design an energy-efficient home! Based on the features alone, I would give it a 10 out of 10. But then I started using it, and I was SO excited! 

Autodesk Homestyler App Review

Thursday, April 10, 2014

Okay, so for probably about the last two or three years, I have been constantly looking for  some sort of home design software or application. About a year ago, I found the Autodesk Homestyler website. It was really cool, but it was pretty difficult to use, especially on the small Chromebook that I had at the time. I made one design with it, and then never used it again. 

National Building Museum

Sunday, April 6, 2014

As I said before, I went to the National Building Museum last weekend! It really was beautiful! I know its not really about interior design per se, but the interior was phenomenal! There really isn’t any other word to describe it. Here is one picture that I took of the great hall. There are columns throughout it and it is surrounded by balconies on four floors. Here are a few “fun facts:”
