Over the summer I have found some unique and different types of typography and clever ways of writing certain words. I find it interesting when you see a word look out of the ordinary but the meaning still makes sense in your brain. We use words and letters all the time and it’s fun to spice them up and view them in an offbeat way. I will definitely be stealing some of these inspirations for my designs next year! xx Glamour Planner

Want to create some new inexpensive artwork, or a fun craft idea with kids? Well this idea you don’t need much to have a blast and create a colourful abstract masterpiece!
To accomplish this: grab a box of crayons laying around, get the hairdryer from the bathroom, have a canvas or paper out and put the dryer on high and hold up whichever crayon colour you want to use and BAM! you have artwork. Use as many colours as you want and create whichever pattern or shape you like.
Next time you are looking for a nightstand table or side table don’t go out and spend $70-$100 bucks, grab one of the wire trash baskets, spray paint it your desired colour and turn it upside down. Voila, it’s like magic!

You know all those shopping bags that accumulate in the hall closet or under the cupboard, why not make them into a fun feature wall! This could be the simplest form of art and also show off your sense of style (where you shop)!

With all this amazing weather we have been getting it seems only right to be bringing the sunshine inside as well. Making your own arrangement like these vases can be as complicated or as simple as you make it. They can be used on your everyday kitchen table, for a big dinner event and even parties to add some colour! Hope you enjoy my inspiration!

This example is super simple, pick up a bag of lemons at your grocery store and throw them into a vase of water and place your bouquet of sunflowers with it, so bright & happy!
Sunflowers + Lemons
I love the look of the limes cut-up and seeing the inside, the pattern adds neat sense of detailing.
As shown in the picture, this type of vase is much more party friendly because of the shape. It is tall and skinny which means it is easy to see around and does not block people vision. I would still have this on my kitchen table, so funky!

Here you can buy individual letters or phrases (found at any home-depot or craft type store), spray paint them any colour you want and hang them in a space. This example is for a guest bedroom and written “be my guest” above the bed, very cute!

A fun way to add personality to individual rooms is by painting the inner frame of the door.

A splash of pink (or any colour) in the back of an old cabinet or bookshelf can be transforming!
