Did someone say IRON ON home design?11:02 AM
I love my home to look like me, weird. Just kidding, not too weird. But you always hear that whatever design and colors you tend to wear is a great place to start for your home as well. Not everyone follows that rule, but as much as I love zebra or leopard print, I don't wear it so I probably won't put it in my home. I tend to dress classy casual, if that is a style? I like to accessorize, so this is most likely what my home will represent.
Obviously I dream of the day when perhaps I will have a house where I can have storage to put all my great future thrift store furniture finds, and start room by room to transform it into a home design dream world (of course). But for today, I love to find things that can bring a bit of my style into my apartment for cheap. I also love when you can personalize it, or design things yourself. So when I came across this article in Family Circle I was inspired!!
Think of all the possibilities!
Here's How: Choose a large-scale floral fabric (or use remnants of what you already have). Following directions on the packaging, apply iron-on adhesive sheets to the back of fabric. Cut out favorite design elements (e.g., a big blossom, small leaf) and arrange pieces on chair or slipcover until you find a design you like. Peel paper backing from each piece and iron directly onto chair or slipcover.

This is an easy way to not only get your house looking great, it is also a way to express your own personal design, creative eye, and I don't know about you...but I often times know the material pattern, colors, style I am going for in my "design minds eye" and yet I can not find that thing anywhere! Here you can go pick your very own material, trace out the pattern you want, and iron it on! Amazing.
What would you do? I am thinking, next nursery ideas!
