When it comes to shoe organization, I’m in a world of chaos.
Change they say is the only permanent on earth. You might have noticed the many changes our world has gone through after all these years–be it in the world of business, media, technology and even education. Furniture is no exception to this.
If you’re one of the unlucky ones that don’t have central air conditioning in your home or apartment and you don’t want your average, run of the mill table, floor or ceiling fan mucking up your tasteful decor, then here’s a few designs that look cool while keeping you cool.
An easy way to add pop to a room is to accessorize with pillows. It can instantly change and brighten your furniture like a good piece of adornment on a dress. I recently made my own pillows out of felt because I wanted to customize the design to my taste. You can do just about anything with this stuff using colors you choose and templates you create. Although I sewed my graphic felt designs onto the pillow fabric, you could just glue it using fabric glue. When I was done, I went snooping around the Web to see what else was out there and gathered some fantastic examples as inspiration for you to make your own. Or, if you can’t be bothered, you can just buy them.
I usually work backwards, or at least in a powerfully non-linear way. I have had two pillow inserts for YEARS now, waiting to be embellished with pretty decorations. I don’t necessarily need more pillows around the place, but it bugs me that these things have just been sitting there, adding to my to-do list. So off I went looking for fabric only to find nothing suitable for the very specific idea I had in my head – something red, maybe with florals, without being too girly or frilly. Solution: make my own design using felt. Brilliant! I love this product because it is inexpensive and needs no extra sewing to keep the edges from fraying.
