Master Bathroom Makeover: Part 2

February 29, 2012

I've been living and breathing this master bathroom makeover. Result? There's been little time for anything else. I've been making progress, and as of last night, the floor is complete {huge sigh of relief}...  And I'm in major pain today - It stinks getting old! Sorry for the lack of posts or inspiration this week.  I love sharing new DIY projects (I have a few ready to reveal next week) or decorating tips, but this week's focus is on the progress of the bathroom and the steps that I've been taking along the way.  It's almost like a reality show, but instead on my blog and NOT start … [Read more...]

Master Bathroom Makeover: Part 1

Master-Bathroom-Makeover

If you follow SAS Interiors on Facebook and Twitter (if you don't, please do), you may have saw a few postings that I wrote mentioning that I finally decided to give my master bathroom a makeover.  And when I say finally, I mean FINALLY!  This is the only room in the entire house that hasn't been touched since we moved in and it's horrendous...  Until NOW. Over the weekend, we (meaning the mister and I) finally took the plunge and gave this much-needed space a revamp.  I really wish that I could say in two days we finished the entire space, but that would be a big-white-lie. Bummer!  I went … [Read more...]

How To Achieve a Well Styled Bookcase

February 24, 2012

well-styled-bookcase

There is truly nothing like a well styled bookcase filled with books, accessories, collectibles, and photos that add warmth, intrigue, and uniqueness to a space.  I've been doing some styling lately for a few clients, and it's been so enjoyable to start with a blank slate and build from the ground up by adding different elements and layers to create an engaging and interesting composition. Whether built-in or freestanding, bookshelves can represent and showcase you and your families passions, interests, and hobbies.  They can make a bare wall go from blah-to-beautiful and make an overall … [Read more...]

DIY: How To Paint Stripes and Product Review of U-Stripe It

How-To-Paint-Designer-Stripes

Not too long ago I wrote an article for Build Direct on adding stripes into your decor.  Ever since, I've had the longing urge to add stripes SOMEPLACE in my home.  I recently made some new pillows for my family room and chose a fabric with stripes, but that wasn't enough.  I truly envisioned making a bold statement, but just wasn't sure where.  Until... ...I decided to makeover my son's room which was a home goal of mine for 2012.  It was the perfect spot to make dramatic focal wall with STRIPES! We started off by taking apart his bunkbeds (which you can see in this post), so he now … [Read more...]

Manual Photography Cheatsheet

February 17, 2012

manual-photography-cheat-sheet

For me, photography and I have a LOVE-HATE relationship.  Capturing a moment has always been a huge part of my life.  Growing up, my mom photographed everything and at times even though we made fun of her because the camera was glued to her hand, I absolutely treasure each and every one of the pictures she snapped.  As I've gotten older, I inherited the photog bug. I love taking pictures of my children, architecture, nature, and so many things that surround me and that I see on a daily basis.  Along with all those loves, I also take a lot of photographs of my home and projects that I create, … [Read more...]

Good morning friends and Happy Valentine's Day! I want to share a little something with you today that I made for the mister for Vday.  I will start off by saying, I can't take credit for this adorable project.  It was actually a DIY creation that was featured on Daily Do It Yourself and was originally created by Amanda of Wit & Whistle, so I won't be sharing the whole tutorial here and instead you can hop over to her blog to see how to create one for yourself or a special someone. Trying to be O So Romantic, I made this pillow using drop cloth material and stenciled words from … [Read more...]

Create a Paint Palette using Sherwin Williams Chip It

When it comes time to paint a room, the #1 question asked is, "What color should I choose?" The next question?  "How will that color look in my room?" "Will that color be too dark?" "Will this color give enough punch?" "I love the color of this room, but what is it?" Many well-known paint companies like Benjamin Moore, Sherwin Williams, Pratt and Lambert, Valspar, Glidden, and the list goes on, offer free online paint "tools" to help homeowners visualize how a color will look in a room before actually endeavouring on the painting process.  Recently Sherwin Williams launched a … [Read more...]
