Small Home Love…

With a total surface of just 34 square meters & consisting of one room plus kitchen, hallway & bathroom, I say this is an amazingly sweet apartment.

Martha has wonderful ideas…a new use for flower pots

Pretty pots can do more than hold flowers on an outdoor table. They can be used to protect dips and other dishes from party-crashing insects. Lift the pot by sticking one finger through the drain hole, or create a handle by cutting an 18-inch length of 1/4-inch cord and knotting the ends together. Thread the looped end through the drain hole in the flowerpot.

Martha has wonderful ideas…paint swatch sticks

Long after the last coats have dried on your new paint job, you can still have easy access to the color names and numbers for touch-ups.  I am always asking my clients for a sample of their paint colour, I would love it if anyone gave me a set of these to work with on their home design project….


Save the wooden stirrers you used to mix the paint, let them dry, and then write the names and numbers of the colors on the ends of the sticks. Use a length of twine to bundle the sticks by room.
