Indoor countertop herb garden in the kitchen with mismatched pots and Plasti Dip Craft coating DIY project on Thou Swell #herbgarden #indoorplants #indoorgarden #kitchengarden #plastidip

Spray paint is one of the best tricks you can use for repurposing old items or creating a cohesive collection from things that are mismatched. My last project with Plasti Dip Craft transformed vintage flatware and glasses into a matching blue picnic set with its convenient rubberized coating, and this time I’m creating an indoor herb garden with an assortment of pots. This application is a great example of how the rubber coating is helpful for things you don’t want to scratch or skid, and I’ll always love the fact that you can peel the coating off if you want to change up the design. See how easy it is to put together this cute countertop herb garden with some painters tape and Plasti Dip paint, which you can purchase on Amazon!

FRENCH-INSPIRED INTERIORS IN A MEDITERRANEAN BUCKHEAD ABODE

French-inspired interiors in a Mediterranean house in Buckhead, Atlanta by Norman Askins on Thou Swell #hometour #housetour #frenchstyle #interiordesign #buckhead #atlantahome (via Atlanta Magazine, photography by Jeff Herr)

For a Mediterranean-style home in the middle of Buckhead (one that’s always caught my eye), architect Norman Askins and designer Susan Bozeman brought a French touch to the new interiors, adding to the European style of the stucco house. The 1930’s home features arched windows above French doors, black shutters, and romantic Juliet balconies on the exterior, and the high-contrast look was brought to the entryway with all-black walls and a tortoiseshell ceiling. From the nailhead-studded pantry doors in the kitchen above to the brass fittings in the classic owner’s bath, this house is full of luxurious details with classic nods to European style. Step inside the Atlanta home below.

Small bathroom renovation ideas, shower to bathtub conversion, grey bathroom with slate tiles by Kevin O'Gara on Thou Swell #smallbathroom #bathroomrenovation #bathroomideas #greybathroom #greypaint #smallbath #bathideas #bathroomdesign #homedesign #renovation

The West Midtown Project guest bathroom recently got a fabulous upgrade with the help of The Home Depot. This full bath is by the second bedroom and desperately needed some personality, plus some functional updates to bring it up to the level of the rest of the house. The main priorities included replacing the plastic shower kit and pedestal sink and adding in a small bathtub and vanity with storage. I enjoyed using a couple of key tools from The Home Depot’s website and mobile app to get all the help I needed completing this small bathroom renovation! Read on to see how the new design came together.

WEST MIDTOWN PROJECT: CUSTOM LINEN CURTAINS FOR THE LIVING ROOM

Custom tall sheer white linen curtains for double-story living room window on Thou Swell #curtains #drapery #linen #livingroom #livingroomdesign #livingroomdecor #homedecorideas

The latest update from the West Midtown living room includes a major decor game-changer. Curtains have always been one of my favorite ways to change a space, from hiding bad architecture to softening large rooms, and this room was definitely in need of the latter. With a two-story window in the front, the open-floorplan living room continues to the kitchen and dining room behind. It’s hard to make such a tall and open space feel cozy, but the curtains were an investment that definitely paid off! They make this space feel SO luxe and inviting, and I was able to get them made very reasonably by this amazing Etsy shop Best Custom Curtains. See the beautiful white linen fabric close-up below.
