We all know wood floors are a classic favorite among homeowners for their timeless beauty and depth of character. The amazing thing is that this same look can be used on the ceiling, as well. A wood ceiling is a great way to bring charm, character, and texture to a space.

Home Tour: Kourtney Kardashian’s Fashionable Family Home

The Kardashians are known for their luxurious, contemporary style that dress every area of their life in, especially their homes. They always have a sophisticated palette that is punctuated by a unique flair. In the case of sisters Kourtney and Khloe, both homes were designed by Martyn Lawrence Ballard but each has its own distinct style.

Kourtney Kardashian’s new home in California is elegant with a few pops of bright, fresh colors. It has a very sleek, modern edge that even possesses some midcentury modern moments in it. It’s full of clean lines and rich textures. It’s a long way away from the whimsical, Wonderland-esque nature of her last home, taking on a more mature nature while still capturing a unique flair.

Here are the beautiful images of the home tour as seen in Architectural Digest.

10 Glazed Kitchen Cabinets with Character

Your kitchen cabinets are the star of your kitchen. While there are many other important elements in the space ─ the backsplash, the countertops, the appliances, the decor ─ the cabinets will always have the most impact on the design. That’s why it’s important to choose cabinets that suit the style you want and make you fall in love again every time you walk into your kitchen.

While this isn’t always the case when we buy a home or even when we’ve been living in one for a long time, the good news is that there are a lot of budget-friendly options for transforming your cabinets so long as they are in good shape. You don’t need a huge, costly renovation to make them fabulous. Some paint alone can do amazing things.

So what about when you want your kitchen cabinets to have more character than a solid color can offer? One of my favorite options is the look of glazed kitchen cabinets. A nice glaze can give your cabinets that extra flair for a more worn, vintage look. It’s subtle but the result can be the charm and elegance you’ve been looking for.

Here are 10 beautiful examples of glazed kitchen cabinets in a variety of colors and styles.

10 Stylish Decorating Tips for Renters

As a renter, it can be disheartening to realize you are “stuck” with whatever your landlord has decided to put in the home. You may have certain restrictions, such as no painting the walls, or feel stuck with flooring you are less than thrilled about. These things serve as a constant reminder that you’re living in someone else’s property and can make you feel like you aren’t able to give it the sense of style you personally want to live in.

While you may not have all the freedom of customization that a homeowner has, the great news is that you can still do some amazing things to your rental to make it your own. It is entirely possible to feel right at home in a rental apartment or house with some very simple design tricks. In fact, you can make it downright chic, regardless of the permanent cosmetic details.

The following 10 decorating tips for renters are easy to implement, budget-friendly, and will do wonders to any rental.

10 Stylish Decorating Tips for Renters | HomeandEventStyling.com1. Wall Art. Nothing can brighten up a home and give it some personal style as quickly and effectively as wall art.
