As a designer, writer, and entrepreneur, I’m obsessed with anything that is luxury, unique, or glamorous! I have a keen eye for style and love sharing all my ideas, muses, and projects with the rest of the design world! I love to travel along with Sophie, my mini Schnauzer whom I take on all my great adventures.

I know in the 17th and 18th century, designers loved to design each room with one theme, and one color only! When I toured the Schonbrunn Palace a few years back, I remember stepping into each room and being surprised. Every room had a different theme going on – the red room, the green room, the blue room, e.t.c. I always thought this was interesting as you didn’t know what to expect when entering a room. The rooms below have a modern take on this design style and used French toile, venetian motifs, and floral prints throughout each space. Pretty neat!

We all have childhood memories of Granny’s house and her perfectly decorated floral pillows, afghan blankets, quilts, tassels, doilies and fringed furniture. Who knew interior designers would take cue from this tacky style and bring it to designer homes throughout America? This style isn’t entirely shabby chic – it’s where shabby chic once originated from. So let’s take a look at some of the good, the bad, and the ugly of Granny chic. What do you all think, would you give it a go?
I’m always looking how to add a surge of style to neglected spaces in a room. One place we don’t think to add some attention to are our doors! Just think about the endless possibilities you could do from contrasting moldings, trim, and even adding wallpaper! One cute way I’ve come across to make your unnoticed doors instantly pop is adding a rocker nail head trim. Keep reading for full instructions on this easy weekend DIY:
- Exotic colored paint (optional)
- 1-inch wide painters’ tape
- Nail-head upholstery tacks (approximately 600 ½ inch domes and 1-inch squares for corners)
- Permanent-ink marker
- Felt furniture pad to cover hammer
- Remove door from hinges and paint with exotic colored paint if desired. Let it dry.
- Decide on the design for you nail heads and measure it out with a ruler. This second photo’s design is 1 inch from the door edge and the inner rectangles are 3 ½ inches from the door edge with 2 ½ inches between the 2 inner rectangles to clear the knob.
- Tape off the design with painters’ tape and make the inner edge of the tape the line where you wish your tacks to be.
- Check the measurement per tack. Use a ruler and marker to measure and mark off along the inner tape edge where each tack will be inserted.
- Place awl at each marking, and tap it with the hammer to start a hole. Remove tape.
- Start in the middle of each rectangle, working outwards and gently tap the tacks into place with the hammer. Cover the hammer tip with the felt pad to avoid marking the tack. End with the corner tacks. And… voila!
