I’d like to see articles on decorating on a budget by using your existing furniture, artwork, etc in ways that make your spaces look fresh and new. And timeless decorating vs trendy decorating.

I’d love to see an article, from your point of view, naming the top 5-10 economical DIY projects a homeowner can do to help update their house before it goes on the market. The most impactful, bang-for-your-buck type of projects. Not necessarily decorating or staging projects. Thanks!

Love more stories demonstrating reimagining spaces, using existing furniture,objects, art etc.
Also, more on how to build off and/or showcase a beloved object, pice of furniture or art.

Using what one already has, and enhancing our spaces is always great.

Thanks.

hey Kristie,

Thank you for sharing your passion you help us create awesome living spaces. I always like hearing about how to mix patterns art, rugs and colors. I am eclectic and always wonder if there is just too much going on in my rooms. these types of articles would be most useful for me in general. A current project is recovering a couch and chair, any articles on fabric shopping on line and finding a good person to reupholster these pieces, the couch needs a bit of cushion rebuilding as well.

Keep up the great work, girl.

Thanks!
Susan

Hi Kristy! Congratulations on your many accomplishments, especially as a contributing writer for Every Day Home magazine! As a stager/redesigner, I would definitely appreciate seeing more articles on that subject to share with potential clients. Thank you for your consideration and…make your next Endevor an Artistic one!

I love practical ideas and lots of pictures – maybe something on taking old videos/photos and comparing which companies are the best to turn them into dvds?

Or best times of the year to buy big ticket items for the home?

Still on my first cup – that is what I could come up with! 🙂

Best regards,
lisa

I would love to see more on decorating on a real budget if you are not a design expert. What can we do if we are interested in home design but don’t have much experience? Where to start?
Thanks!

I enjoy Southern Living, More and Oprah Magazines so if Everyday Home can offer some articles for women like these 3 publications, then I would be pleased.

I would love to read an article dealing with the dreaded popcorn ceiling. Yes, the obvious thing to do is TAKE IT DOWN but our entire home was finished like this, and it will be a long time before we can get rid of all of it. In the meantime, I would like to learn tips on minimizing its presence in the room with the right wall colors, lighting, etc. I know that the texture really messes up the room’s lighting since the ceiling doesn’t bounce any light around, and casts a MILLION tiny shadows everywhere, but what can we do to improve the situation while we’re living with it? I don’t know who came up with the idea, but these ceilings are everywhere around here.

Hi Kristie,

First I would like to say Conratulations. Very happy for you, but also for stagers in general. Its great to see staging in print. Now to answer your question.
How about design articles based on challenging family dynamics such as wheel chair user, triplets/lots of kids, an elderly parent….etc. And, challenging spaces. Those are so tricky for most.

Thanks for your consideration. Liz

I would love to see an article that solves the problems of less than ideal spaces. Like what do you do when your kitchen sink faces a wall? Or your rooms are very narrow, one after the other?

I would like to see articles and pictures of designers who are into French and English cottage/country. I really don’t care for all the modern homes that are shown. Tell the readers where they can purchase items and the cost.

Also I love to go to estate sales in Norman, Oklahoma, so if you could show items in estate sales and what they were purchased for that would be great.

I have not read an Every Day Home magazine but I’ll certainly search out this month’s so I can read your article. I love your ideas for decorating a home without breaking the bank. What I love to see in a home decorating magazine are ideas for vignettes on tables, mantels, etc. How to update your rooms without spending too much or changing out all your major purchases. One of my dilemmas is curtains for my bedroom when I have two totally different bedding for spring/summer and fall/winter. Any hints on this would be very helpful.

Congratulations Kristie,

You deserve this and I am so happy for your wisdom and that you share it with newbies like me! I would like to see more of you in their magazine, your color and styling wisdom is rare! I love anything about creative design, design for less and of course, paint color!

Thank you and I look forward to reading the article!

I’d love to see more about how you can spruce up “builder basics,” either in an existing home or choices that you can make when working with a builder to make your home feel more custom built. This would include a focus on where you ought to spend more to get the most bang for your buck design-wise.

I really love to see before and after pictures, especially in homes that are very common…the average builder spec home. I do so much better with seeing what can be done to make a plain home have more character.

I love the articles about old, worn pieces of furniture that sell for hardly nothing at garage sales and transforming them to a new, usable piece of furniture for your home. Paint and new hardware make such a difference on old, worn pieces. It really is true, one mans junk is anothers treasure!! I love dumpster diving or picking up pieces on the curb side that should be thrown away for junk and giving these pieces new life!!

I love to see before and afters (but on a budget)! With a lot of DIY Craigslist makeovers thrown in! I also cannot seem to make any decisions about decorating (still, very stuck), so maybe some exercises about how to get over that hump.

Congratulations, Kristie!

I would like to learn more about WHERE to put different paint colors, beyond the common accent wall. Weird angles, adjoining rooms where there isn’t clear delineation but it clearly calls for something more, etc.

I’ll have to find that magazine!

I would like to see more small house designs. Most of us live in smaller spaces but I rarely see more modest homes in design magazines, Also would like to see budget friendly options. Maybe monthly articles with plenty of pictures on design bloggers- there are so many of you! Thank you and congrats on your feature.
