Guest Blogger: The Mustard Ceiling



Hi HOH readers, I am excited to be here today to introduce myself
while Allison is on vacation!

I’m Elizabeth, from The Mustard Ceiling. The Mustard Ceiling is my blog dedicated to my obsession of interior design, and do-it yourself projects and other daily musings.

I guess you could say I was destined to be a designer. As the daughter of a Realtor and a conic renovator, I grew up surrounded with sawdust and paint brushes. This fueled my love of interior design and at 13 I had found my calling. From a young age, many hours were spent scouring design magazines for inspiration. In 2005, I graduated with a degree in interior design and have been loving it ever since.

I started The Mustard Ceiling, in January, 2011, as a way to connect with other design and DIY enthusiasts.

My husband and I moved to New Mexico in 2008, and have been renovating our 1950’s brick rancher ever since.

Here are a few of projects the projects we’ve tackled:

Our Dining Room



My husband built the wainscoting, which made all of the difference in this room.

Earlier this spring, I felt like our dining room needed more color.
I incorporated coral into our dining room by:

1. sewing burlap drapes with a coral border
2. DIY coral ikat fabric

This really made the room pop.

One of my favorite projects is my stenciled ikat fabric.

I decided to make my own after I found out the fabric that I loved was on back order until July.

Stenciling the ikat fabric

The final product

I love our master bedroom, it is one of my favorite rooms in our home.


When we moved into our home I knew that I wanted a dark, chocolate master bedroom. The rich, dark walls, paired with my husband’s handsome bedroom furniture made a great starting point for our design.

To complete our master bedroom design I wanted a chocolate geometric rug . I searched and searched, scoured the internet for hours to find the perfect rug, for the life of me I could not find the right rug. Finally, after many frustrating hours on the internet, I decided to make my own.

Thank you Allison for having me today to share some of my favorite projects.

I hope to see you over at The Mustard Ceiling!
