Good morning, and happy Monday! After spending most of October focusing on Halloween projects and ideas, I have decided to take a break from the Holidays and focus on my usual diy, interior design, and kids craft posts. So today I bring you some clever and creative ideas for tackling those hallways that you just don’t know what to do with. There are some great ideas out there, and here are just a few.
To make a bold statement in our own hallway, I opted for a neutral paint color that really packed a punch. Charcoal walls create drama, and contrast nicely against the white woodwork. A collage of family photos adds a personal touch.
I found this amazing hallway on Savvy Home Blog. If you have the room, why not go for a hallway library. I love this look, and you could even put cabinet doors or bins on the bottom shelves for some extra storage space. Image via Coburn Architecture.
Sometimes more is more. And this hallway is the perfect example. If you have a long hallway and want to fill up those walls and create visual interest, tell a story with floor to ceiling, wall to wall collages. Image via Elle Decor.
Today I am going to unleash my inner nerd and share some fantastic finds, all inspired by one of my all time favorite movies… Labyrinth. I actually dressed up as Jareth for Halloween a few years ago, and was reminissing this morning, thinking I must do it again sometime! Then I came across this ADORABLE plush goblin on etsy. Love.
Happy Thursday everyone! October has proven to be quite the competitive month. I started off with a costume giveaway, then was honored to be a finalist in the Fiber One Snackcessory Challenge, there is still time to vote by the way, and now I am excited to be a finalist in the HomeGoods Devilish Decor Photo Challenge! And you should enter too! You have until the 28th to snap a pic of your festive Halloween decorations and enter for a chance to win a $500 gift card! Click here for more info!
After making several halloween costumes this month, I have a bunch of leftover felt scraps. The thrifty girl in me would hate to just toss it all, so I decided to put it to good use and make some felt coasters! This is a super simple craft, even the little kiddos can help out. Plus you can sit and do it while watching a movie.
All you need are scraps of felt, cut into strips (try and get the strips to all be the same width). Then a little fabric glue or hot glue, and some time.
Start by lining the inside of a felt strip with a bead of glue, then just roll. Keep doing this until you get your desired size, alternating colors.
You can make larger ones to use for hot pots and pans, and why not even place mats?

Here at URBANARA, tucked away in Mitte, Berlin, we are surrounded by a great range of flea markets selling the best in vintage fashion, to beautiful homemade jewelry and beautiful antiques. Ranging from the mighty Mauerpark, to the host of Turkish markets that dot the city every Saturday and Sunday, Berlin is a flea marketers dream. Let URBANARA give you the best tips for making your Sunday morning trip to the market as fruitful and stress free as possible.
1. Early bird catches the worm: This might be quite obvious but always arrive early for the best deal and the most beautiful items. Flea markets are becoming a really popular and fashionable way to decorate your apartment so very often the first hours are the most valuable. Get down there early to catch the bargains and find the best buys of the day before someone else snatches them up!
2. Think outside the box: Find new uses for antique pieces. Furniture is probably the easiest to do this with. Use dressers as sideboards, a sofa for Continue reading →
