It’s no secret there are a ton of home design ideas floating around the internet! Below are three of my recent favorites.
Add a pop of citrus to a room for a splash of summer color.
From Houzz.com – “Artwork and pillows are two of the simplest additions you can make. Coordinate a fun, graphic print and a pillow cover for your couch in matching shades.” See more citrus colors in home design.
Is there a sweet little one rolling, crawling or running around your house? Real Simple recently published a great article with tips to allow a child’s space to grow with him or her.

Last but not least, let’s talk about shoes!
I found this idea on Pinterest and fell in love with it. It’s a great way to utilize a wall space and get those shoes off the closet floor.
This DIY project uses two different crown molding pieces to create a shoe rack. You can purchase the base and crown molding at your local hardware store. This tutorial on the Home Depot community forum explains the project step by step.
Measure your space to determine the length and number of molding pieces needed BEFORE you go to the hardware store.
If you don’t own a saw, ask a store associate to cut your molding.
Be sure to nail into the studs so your shelves are properly anchored. A stud finder will help you identify where the studs are inside the wall.
If you are looking for a simpler, but similar shoe rack, use one piece of molding instead of combing the base and crown pieces. Pro – it’s fewer steps, Con – the bottom of your shoes will rest against the wall.
I hope these ideas simplify your life and add a splash of color to your home.
