Maybe I’ve been watching too much HGTV, but lately I’ve been daydreaming of a home makeover. While a full renovation may not be in my (er, my landlord’s) budget, I will not be deterred. Instead, I’m starting small, with my home’s problem rooms. You know the kind: those spaces that are just too weirdly shaped, or are lacking windows, or are all too cozy. In my old Boston home there are plenty of nooks and crannies that, no matter what I do, just haven’t worked – yet. Here, some crafty tricks to make even the strangest space feel like it was designed by a pro.
Mark your calendars. Every day for the next 12 days – starting tomorrow – we’ll be featuring a Rue Living Boutique to help get your home holiday-ready. From décor musts like ornaments and trees to gourmet goodies and tabletop settings, our The 12 Days of Merry Boutiques ensure your holidays are just that.
The best part? For each of these Boutiques, we’ll be doling out a little holiday decorating advice – just check back here daily at 12:30PM. And just to whet your palate, check out our tip for red wine stains below:
