Design Ideas for Outdoor Living Space



Today I was talking to a friend of mine and they asked me if I had any ideas on how to .make their outdoor living space more exciting. She told me that her house was white with black trim and the deck matched the homes color scheme. They had a black table and stainless steel grill.  She thought the overall ambiance was drab.

Know that when interior space is small or drab I always update the space with yellow and green color accessories. So I did not have to think about her request I knew that yellow accessories would make her deck cheerful.

Add yellow and green to black color Scheme to update and add interest

I suggested that she paint her patio table and chairs black then change out the cushions to sage green, beige or pale yellow. A solid seating cushion would be better than prints because it allows you to accent the seating printed outdoor pillows.


The deck featured a stone fountain and container gardens with primarily green plants growing. I suggested that she buy colorful ceramic tiles to add to the base of the stone fountain or do a line of tiles down the one side to add color and interest. As for the planters, I thought a climbing rose bush in pink or red or Clematis vine growing in a container with trellis would look nice.


Other ways to brighten a gray deck would be to add an outdoor area rug in a yellow print with touches of green and gray.  Here is an outdoor design that I created for my friend, Click these links to view the accent pillows; Sage and gold circle, green linen textureyellow linen texture pillow are from my Zazzle. store

Big Brother / Little Sister Clothing

Recently I was hired to create big brother / big sister clothing for a customer. She told me that the new baby is getting gifts and the big brother and sister are feeling left out and think that nobody likes him. So I designed big brother and sister shirts for my customer and for customers at my online store. 



New Baby Brother shirts by sgolis 






Whenever there is a new baby and the big sister or brother are young children then it is a good idea to give them both a gift. Otherwise, the sibling feels left out, they think nobody likes them and these anxious feelings could cause the toddler or child to become jealous of their little brother or sister.

The big brother or sister shirts are very cute. My niece is three years old and she has a new baby sister. I saw her the other day and she had on a big sister t-shirt. When I asked her about her shirt, my niece proceeded to tell me all about her new baby sister She was so happy to wear the shirt and to tell us all about her responsibility of being the big sis.

Here are a few big brothers or big sister T-shirts that you may like.  Click on the blue text below the product image to view this product at the Zazzle designer's store or to buy.

Decorating with Table Runners


Table runners are not limited to the dining room, I say use them in the living room, foyer or bedroom. The runner with a cheerful, seasonal or colorful pattern will add interest to your space.

A table runner was used on Christmas themed coffee table.

I decorate my home and my customers home by using table runners on a variety of tables and cabinets. Sometimes I will gather it up to add soft folds in the fabric then set a floral centerpiece in the center. I may open up the fold in the table runner to add more interest or I will decorate around the folds with books, figurines or other collectibles.

Another way to decorate your space with table runners is to use it to accent your coffee table. Choose a cheerful pattern that has colors that compliment your room theme. Set the runner in the center of your coffee table then make your table interesting by adding home accessories. Add candles a jigsaw puzzle, magazines, a silk floral arraignments or a holiday decoration such as a cornucopia for Thanksgiving. 

Table runners designed by independent artists at Zazzle.com
