MR. MAKEOVER: the reel event!

Big Bass Bash by Lifestyle Design

http://byLifestyleDesign.com

Party preparations have commenced!

This week… Save The Dates were sent via email, a Facebook Event was created with 100+ invitees, and brainstorming began for fabulous fishing themed décor.  Shhhh! It’s a surprise party!

70…. And still keepin’ it REEL!

Searching the Lifestyle Design Studio, we found wooden dowels and fishing string, and after a quick run to the tackle shop, we had bobbers, floaters, and wigglers too! Duo-Lock Snaps along with Curltail Grub, Hollow Body Tube, and Dipsey Swivel Sinkers help transform a Sunday school craft into a Pro Bass Fishing Pole.

Our Host couldn’t help but #LoveTheLook by Lifestyle Design – “…and he will too!” she said.

From intimate celebrations to major milestones, attention to detail holds a vital role in every D.I.Y. project. Instead of tying our fishing line in a knot similar to that of a third-grader’s sneaker, we made sure our Float Rig and Barrel Swivel were properly secured to our pole and hook. Although we are far from being Pro Bass Fishermen, it was important that even the most unassuming elements were authentic. Make a statement, without saying a word.

That #MustHave Moment by Lifestyle Design

http://byLifestyleDesign.com

While out shopping for a Client, I noticed these glamorous chains suspended from the ceiling. Knowing several Lifestyle Design Clients are obsessed with gems and jewels, I look at the attendant behind the counter and say, “Go ahead, ring ’em up.”

“How many?” she asked. “All of them.” I replied,

…already captivated by several elements of a vintage vignette in a cozy corner nearby.

Fabulous, festive, and fun stoneware (salad/dessert plates) add flair to this bistro brunch setting. An antique glass doorknob and chrome votive holder anchor a heirloom, silver serving tray. Charming, crystal salt and pepper shakers are evidence of yet another, #MustHave moment by Lifestyle Design!

Tabletop Troubles & Simple Solutions…

Almost routinely, I find myself salvaging miscellaneous and often unknown, construction materials. These gold metal discs have consumed my thoughts since their initial purchase last year. Repeatedly, I ran into issues with adhesive while trying to secure them to string/fishing line for parties. Then, late one night, a vision of golden globes came to me…. no adhesive required!

MR. MAKEOVER: motivation

Get LIBerated by Lifestyle Design

http://byLifestyleDesign.com

This smart, small space solution is an ideal alternative to decorating those awkward, apartment corners, nooks, and crannies. Previously we raved about this home decorating idea, using vintage silver platters and trays. Today, Talavera Pottery Plates take center-stage! Notice how our midnight blue and turquoise (Lifestyle Design D.I.Y.) dresser, grounds this look with fluid, cohesive colors that captivate.

Antique, wooden dice; distressed, weathered metal decor; and a #PicturePerfect cameo of The Crew, completes

From time-to-time, we all have those total lack of motivation moments…

Not that being a “Real Househusband of…” is a bad gig; but it’s lonely, not to mention the painstakingly obvious “i” in this team. So, allow me to take a moment to introduce my motivation – or, should I say LIBeration  LIL LIB

Justin Bieber has Lil Za and Lil Twist to keep him occupied, or in custody; however, LIL LIB (Little Liberace) serves as a source of inspiration, determination, and most importantly, motivation.

Being Mr. Mom comes with more than just Day-Time-TV and endless loads of laundry.

A sense of accomplishment builds creativity and encourages those of us that enjoy, Do-It-Yourself domination!

The Retro Reframe

Wedding Day Get-A-Way, Winner’s Strike, and Date Night family photos are dressed in black… much like our frame-on-frame project-in-progress. Antique, heirloom, and vintage photos are a great way to highlight your heritage while also an inexpensive way to add personality to any room. Go ahead, recycle, redecorate, restyle, repeat!

Bored and inconspicuous, this Duck Duo sat (for at least a year) in a shady corner of an upstairs powder room. Notice in the BEFORE (photo above) how the dull, drab, dead, green and red colors almost camouflage the poor little fella! Naturally, I grabbed a few paint pens – teal & turquoise are always a #MustHave – and voila! This dressed-to-impress dynamic duo now serves as a great conversation starter, and effortlessly lefts your mood with each passing glance.

A pleasing aesthetic, a calming color palette, and cohesive design theme are often desired and achieved by men as well!

So, grab the fellas, round up the boys, and give the guys a call, because….
