What is a Lille Huset Without Curtains?

… Boring! Here is a super quick  2 step “how to” about curtains… Design tip: When you make your curtains think about how to make your windows really interesting. Step 1: cut your shade/ curtain with any detail you like just large enough to be a little bigger than the actual window opening. Step 2: Tape the “shade/curtain” to the back side of the window. TIP: use some cute tape so your window is cute from both sides. Voila!

Feature Friday: Lydia’s Lille Logan Huset

Lille Huset camp was so much fun! One of the campers, Lydia, designed and decorated the Lille ‘Logan’ Huset, a sprawling Logan Square inspired greystone that included an indoor garden, glittery trim, and a colorful braided rug in the front room that really tied everything together. Lydia also colored a paper doll of herself so she could enjoy her house even more. To make the paper doll, we converted her picture to black and white, resized so that Lydia was about 6 inches tall and printed it on card stock. We used Photoshop, but most imaging programs should work too. Feel free to share your Lille Huset designs with us! We’d love to see what you come up with!
