Have you ever looked at home decorating magazine or watched a design show on HGTV and wished you could make your own rooms look that good? Design is not always about expertise or even an unlimited budget, but more about taking inspiration and making it work for your own space. That is the philosophy behind Ditto DIY! 

*{for those of you who are new to Fieldstone Hill Design, “ditto” is a post series where I dissect gorgeous rooms so that you can bring elements of these spaces into your own homes.}

Once a month, beginning in May, nine very different bloggers will attempt to recreate in their own homes a project or design element inspired by a haute couture design selected by yours truly!

  Ditto DIY

The participating bloggers include:

Ruth @ Living Well Spending Less
Cindy @ Skip to My Lou
Jen @ Balancing Beauty & Bedlam
Edie @ Life in Grace
Rachel @ Surviving the Stores
Karin @ Trophy Mom Diaries
Lauren @ I am THAT Lady 
Kelly @ View Along The Way
Melissa @ The Inspired Room

Be sure to pop over to each of these fabulous ladies’ sites today to find out more about their personal style, as well as to discover their own decorating strengths & weaknesses! {And be thinking, if you were to describe your own personal style, how would you?}

So here’s what happens next:

Monday, May 6th, all nine of the other participating bloggers will share their inspired DiY projects, while I will provide expert design tips on incorporating the featured design element into your own space. I will then also present our inspiration photograph for the following month. The truly fun part will be seeing what different interpretations of the same photograph this incredibly eclectic group comes up with!

After you’ve had a month to see what Ditto DIY is all about,

we will be inviting you ALL to participate!

Beginning in the first Monday in June (and every first Monday of the month after that), all you with blogs will be able to link up. (Non-bloggers can share your pictures on our Ditto DIY Facebook Page!)

Be sure to tune in Monday, May 6th to check out our first Ditto DIY projects. And now, without further ado, here is this month’s inspiration:

This month’s Inspiration, selected by our interior designer:

A chic painted tray and vanity vignette, from the home of nina bergsten, photography by marcus lawett.

The {ditto} DIY Challenge:

Create your own painted tray and vanity vignette.

Designer Thoughts:

“Study the image above, and be inspired by the sophistication and simplicity of this design. The attention to each detail adds up to a beautiful vignette. “
