Clowning Around with Color for Halloween

This color-loving designer is very much looking forward to her favorite holiday season. So much so, that I am going to show you how The Home Depot has everything you could possibly need to decorate your front step for the upcoming Halloween holiday!

Clowning Around with Color for Halloween

When I first assessed our front door’s “trick-or-treat” situation, it was something straight up out of a scary story. Complete with a creepy door knocker, a dry wood door, old paint and lots of red brick. However, I knew it was something I could easily fix with bright, bold paint and some fun Halloween decor!

And that’s why The Home Depot is my one-stop shop for Halloween! After perusing their new 2020 Holiday collection online, my entire Halloween design quickly came to fruition in my mind’s eye. So I ordered these two scary (yet very colorful) clowns, along with some other Halloween decor items (via The Home Depot mobile app) and then got to selecting some BEHR paint colors for that dry front door.

Bookshelf Closet Makeover

How many of us own a closet that has become an unorganized, cluttered storage space? A lot of us have at least one. Riche Holmes Grant of The Riche Life is sharing how she and her little one turned their cluttered closet space into a cool, neat bookshelf closet. Riche is one of the 2020 Orange Tank Competition winners from this year’s Haven Conference, check out her project below.

Industrial Chic Closet Bookshelves

My daughter, Riley, and I share a Mommy + Me office that we love. Over the years, we’ve styled it to fit our personalities, but the one area that hasn’t gotten any love is our closet. It’s become a dumping ground for books and other miscellaneous items that don’t have a home.

We knew that the closet was long overdue for a makeover, so we decided to install DIY bookshelves. I was inspired by my time living in New York City to give the space an industrial chic look, so we used peel-and-stick wallpaper for the stunning exposed brick backdrop and poplar boards supported by decorative plumbing pipes for the open concept shelves.
