Bring in Plants!

Plants make a house so homey! Plus the color green is vibrant that represents freshness.  Seeing plants in a house makes me smile. I love to see plants in every room.  It just uplifts its surroundings and makes it more lively. Also, remember green is a year-round color. 

Now there are so many plant ideas, and my favorite blog House Plant Addicts has some fantastic ideas, plus I love these Plant Artwork too! 

Add Favorite YOUR Colors

What colors do you like? Or maybe you want to create a calming area so bright pinks and purples would not be the right choice.  Think about what you want from your home- comfort, inspiration, or maybe do individual rooms in different styles. 

 It is your house-make it your home.  

When I think of the bedroom, I want calming and neutral colors so I can sleep better.

Create a SPACE just for you! 

I would love that, but I only have a corner in the living room where I have my favorite chair so that I can read, write, and meditate. I put all my favorites in this little part of the house that is all mine.

I have to share a room with my husband, so I need a space for ME!  Wouldn’t it be nice to have a huge room dedicated to just to you?

Personalized Artwork Helps Turn a House Into A Home!

When you start adding pictures of you and your family, then you are creating a HOME.  But let’s not forget our furbabies too. I never thought about getting a picture of my dog, but when I received a custom portrait of Harley from West and Willow, I wondered why it took me so long.  I think I might have found what I want to give as gifts from now on.

The portraits are clean and simple but so lovely!  I smile every time I walk past my picture of Harley- wouldn’t you?  I think my next step is a customized phone case.

Or what about ARTWORK you create!

My family is very creative, so we have all kinds of artwork around the house, but we have never done Augmented Reality (AR) artwork.  When we had the opportunity to create a personalized work of art, we had a lot of fun. Both beginners and seasoned artists alike can create wall-worthy artwork with Cupixel.  

The experience begins with the Cupixel Art Box. The Box contains EVERYTHING needed to create masterful works of art. The Cupixel Art Box contains enough art supplies to create multiple works of art. When in need of refills, users use the app to place an order for the Cupixel Refill Box. The Refill Box provides additional proprietary painting canvases, as well as an additional Cupixel frame to showcase the artwork.

My daughter was so amazed at how she was able to create her custom artwork with her phone. This was an experience we won’t forget, and we have a new portrait to put in the house- made by Sahara!
