I have a few questions for you:
1. Are you a human being?
2. Do you live somewhere?
If you answered yes to either of these questions, I’m guessing this mysterious “somewhere” place you live has at least one giant empty space on your wall that needs to be filled.
Ok, but DO. NOT. PANIC.

You know how your mom would tell you to do something when you were five, and you’d obnoxiously spit back “BUT WHYYYYY.” And then she’d say “cause I told you so!” and then you’d roll your eyes so hard and just storm off in a huff? Well samsies…right now.

Let me guess: you are looking for the 10 coolest, most fab, most talented, inspiring interior designers to follow on Instagram? OHMYGOD, that works out so well, cause I just made a list of them! Read my post over on HGTV DESIGN HAPPENS BLOG to get all the inside scoop.
Also, whoa: I’m blogging for HGTV now! You can ready my stuff there every Thursday, so go there every Thursday, and also every day in between cause you should be reading their blog every day along with mine. And whoa, HGTV. Oh wait. I said that already.
So here’s some weird advice, but I promise it works: if you have any of those Ikea (or other big boxy) faux sheepskins for $19.95 laying around your joint, and they are looking just a *smidge* too perfect, leave them out in the sun for a couple of days! This sort of “cures” the sheepskin so they look all rough and tumbled and well…more real.
Depending on where you live, I find that usually 2 or 3 days does the trick, though if you want to you can certainly leave them out longer. Check on them often and adjust according to how rough you like em’ looking.
FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM for more advice just like this (and for pics of my dog).
