Hello lovely friends! I’m here today to share the tablescape I came up with to transition our dining room from Summer to Fall. I often find that decorating during the transitional periods between seasons is the most challenging. Do I go with summer-y things? Is it too early for pumpkins? I think I’ve found a nice middle ground to honor the last few days of Summer and slowly greet the cool crispness of Fall.
I am so very excited to have my very first guest post on the blog today! The brilliant minds behind Luxe Decor are sharing some ideas on decorating your home’s walls. I hope y’all enjoy!
When it comes to accessorizing your walls, if you struggle to decide on themes or groupings, you’re not alone. Many people feel challenged by the idea of decorating and designing their interior walls. No need to panic, there are plenty of ideas for creating a winning wall statement.
Here are a few tips and tricks to create a pretty and pleasing artful arrangement:
I’m so happy to get back into the blogging swing after a very hectic end of summer for our little family. I’m even happier to be back with some amazing bloggers to show y’all more ways we incorporate vintage items in our homes. This time its all about small storage solutions – crocks, crates, baskets, even trays and tins. Anything that you can use to wrangle items and do it prettily.
One of the things I love about using vintage items is the history they carry. I’m lucky enough to have several family heirlooms so I know their history by heart. I feel like I’m honoring the memories of those who loved these items by using them. Even if its in a different way than they were originally intended.
I’m so excited to be linking up with some talented bloggers to show y’all how we all use vintage pieces with modern decor in our homes!
From an early age, I can remember having a love for old things. Old houses, old doors, old furniture, you name it. I can mostly thank my parents for that. We always had vintage pieces around our house. So it was only natural that when I had my own home to decorate, I gravitated towards mixing vintage pieces with modern decor.

Hello, friends! Today I thought I’d share with y’all the super easy DIY patriotic banner I put together for our fireplace. Its honestly so simple that I wasn’t sure about sharing it, but hopefully it’ll inspire you or give you an idea to use in your own home. Total cost for this project was $6 and you just cannot beat that!
We seem to take room makeovers slowly over here. And…I tend to change my mind a lot and come up with new projects to add, so things are never totally “done.” This tiny little entry is ready for the fork to be stuck in it though.
Lets go back to the beginning, shall we?
The night we got our keys, we couldn’t even open the door completely because the previous owners left so much stuff in the house. The walls were painted the same dark burgundy that was in the living room. The hallway was so ridiculously narrow that I couldn’t even stretch out both arms while standing in it.Continue Reading
Form and function. Two things that I have been looking to unite in my life and home. Now that I am well past the college stage and well into the married with a kid stage, I’ve been itching to update a lot of the items we use every single day. As I slowly weed through household items to prettify, I’ve been trying to do the same with my own personal items (I’m eyeing you cheap Old Navy flip-flops that offer no lower back support!). Enter my new Jord Wood Watch.
The one item in my home that I seem to get the most compliments on is the large wall map hanging behind our couch. I scored it at Hobby Lobby on clearance and since then haven’t been able to find another one.Continue Reading
We’ve been working on the exterior of our home this Spring and attempting to add some much needed curb appeal to our colonial style home. As I was perusing Pinterest, I realized that one thing that can pack a big curb appeal punch is adding a beautiful wreath to your front door. Our wreath was puny and didn’t stand out from the road, so I knew I wanted a new one. All of the ones I loved were gorgeous, of course, but also way out of my price range.
Enter a solution. I found 3 large bundles of hot and light pink tulips for $12 while I was browsing through Goodwill earlier in the week. I couldn’t get them in my basket quick enough! I knew they would be perfect for creating a wreath.
