There are several ways to create the distressed look. You could start with a few layers of paint then add a spatter of glaze in areas where wear would naturally occur. Or try light sanding or hitting with a chain to reveal colors below; this creates the look of a piece that has been painted multiple times and years of use have worn away some layers. If you're looking for a simpler process painting only one coat and lightly sanding in spots to reveal the wood below also works.

Magic mirror reflects current technology. Another mirror concept coming soon to homes can be found already in stores. A specially made full‐length mirror superimposes clothing on your reflection creating the illusion that you’re wearing the selected item of clothing. It’s an easy way to cycle through a large number of garments without wasting time trying them on. One example is the EON Interactive Mirror which has already been installed in mall clothing stores.The system uses Microsoft’s Kinect technology which was created for gaming and repurposed for retail marketing. As you can see the illusion is pretty good.

Tile mosaic and hammered pendant light. Craft a worldly look with a mosaic of mismatched tiles like the Cuban tile shown here printed cushions and a hammered silver or copper pendant light. Benches are extra cozy but a tiled accent wall alone could add oomph to any breakfast nook.
Edda Braune Bedroom September 22nd, 2017
Envision a deeply restorative space. The best way to begin any design project is with a clear vision of your hopes for the end result. Take a moment to ponder what your ideal bedroom space would look like and how it would feel – the scent the textures the sounds. Create as clear a picture as you possibly can and hold that in your mind as you move forward with the project. Clean the air. Air quality affects health and wellness and poor air quality can impact sleep. The easiest way to clean the air in your bedroom is simply to open your windows. Commit to letting fresh air into your bedroom for at least 10 minutes each day and the air quality is sure to improve. To take it a step further you may want to add several potted plants and an air purifier. Limit technology and remove emotional clutter. When you visualized your ideal bedroom I'd wager that it wasn't filled with clutter or the tangle of wires dangling from your laptop. Giving yourself a break from tech devices at night will help promote deeper rest and is probably a good idea healthwise as well. Also take a moment to consider the things you have stored in your bedroom. Are there boxes of bills and paperwork that make your stomach knot each time you see them? Piles of clothes that no longer fit workout tools you don't use or photos of friends you have a tense relationship with? All of these things can contribute to stress and insomnia so out they must go. Clean thoroughly and naturally. Often our bedrooms fall way down to the bottom of our cleaning to‐do list simply because not many others have to see these private spaces.

Here's another green‐accented kitchen but this hue has more blue in it and creates a nice midcentury modern vibe. You can't go wrong pairing this pretty hue with white and light‐toned woods.

Rough hewn. This industrial‐style dining arrangement is easy to copy. Find a wood trestle table and some midcentury modern chairs and fit them into a small area of your home preferably with a window view. The tight space and brick and plaster walls give the dining area a congenial air.

Corner nook. Custom woodwork and banquette seating can create a sophisticated corner nook in the kitchen. In this L‐shaped arrangement the wood grain of the built‐in banquette is matched to the kitchen countertops and complemented by a white table and cabinets. To add color and interest it has been decorated with a variety of flea market finds.

Bright and breezy. This built‐in banquette needs little more than a small table and a couple of light‐colored chairs to complete a fine‐looking and functional kitchen nook. The window bench extends from the end of the kitchen cabinets to create an ideal space between two big windows. The banquette can also double as storage with a hinged lid seat covered by cushions.
