  1. I bought a nice wallpaper in a charity shop once, super cheap but not as much for a wall and I use it for decorating boxes. They look good and more steady. If you do several boxes different sizes, you can distribute them in the house and have a coherent look.

  2. I like your ideas a lot, but why, oh why can't we book lovers get styling our bookshelves while still being able to find / read the books? The current trend of putting them on the shelves back-to-front (as in your "bookshelf" picture), or sorting by color, is soooooooo unfortunate. If you're not able to find a book to read it, why have it at all? I'd love some HELPFUL bookshelf ideas that treat books as books, not decorative, meaningless trinkets.

  3. Wow this was so timely for me! Thank you for those awesome ideas, I'm definitely going to go the artwork route 🙂

  4. Fabulous ideas! Love your videos.

    We’re about 1/3 of the way through building our forever home. The design choices can be daunting. Your videos are full of sound advice and creative ideas, based on practical design principles. Thank you!

    We are considering using either wallpaper or having someone hand paint our chimney for our wood stove surround. I always dreamed of having a stone fireplace and chimney; but the price tag is insane. We’re looking at using stone for the inside and the hearth, then papering or painting the chimney.
