Fall In Love With Fall

Fall is my favorite season for many reasons!  I was married in October and in fact we’ll be celebrating our 5 year wedding anniversary next month.  We’re going to Quebec City for a long weekend and I cannot wait!     🙂 I love the weather this time of year.  When else can I wear a t-shirt with a scarf?     😉 I adore the Fall/Winter fashion trends, like blazers and sweaters.  I’ve started to pull some pieces from the back of my closet that I haven’t seen since I bought them on clearance last year.  It’s like I’m going shopping in my closet. My favorite …

Simple Coffee Table Decor

I find decorating my coffee table so much fun because the possibilities are endless.  Technically I have a “cocktail table” since there are little shelves that you can pull out to place your drink.  How neat is that? The table is pretty traditional with its round shape and dark wood.  I have a nice blank slate to work with.  I wanted a simple, uncluttered look using neutral tones, which and I did by using only three neutral colored objects. I still adore the cork screws in the over sized round glass container that I made a few months back.  Wine Corks Decor can coordinate …

Decorating with Pillows

I am loving my new decorative pillows!  Originally I had faux sheepskin pillows in my living room but they scream autumn and winter.  While I love my faux sheepskin pillows, it’s time for a seasonal change. Pillows are an inexpensive and easy way to make over a room.  There are so many options to choose from, whether you’re looking for a particular size, style, color, or pattern.   Plus they come in all price ranges to fit within your budget.  You can find them at so many places, like furniture stores, chain stores, home decor stores, and on line. Pillows are awesome …

Springtime Mantel

It feels like spring is finally here!  It’s about that time to update my mantel decor and  I decided to go with a rustic springtime look.  I wanted to keep everything simple and clean and use objects that remind me of spring. Flowers are a wonderful reminder that spring has sprung!  I recently bought these faux peonies and I’m loving them because they look like live flowers.  Have you ever seen faux flowers that look plastic?  Pass.  I adore the height and drama that the peonies bring to the mantel. Then I added tall objects on the opposite side of the mantel in …

Whites & Greys

A white and grey color combination is so chic!  I like using that color combo in my wardrobe and throughout my home, like in my guest bathroom. Since this bathroom will primarily be used by guests, I want the decor to be simple and functional.  I tend to avoid matching bathroom sets because I like mixing different accessories to give a more natural look. After I wash up in a bathroom I don’t like dragging my wet hands around looking for a towel.  Maybe that’s me being neurotic but I’ve placed hand soaps and towels at each sink so that …
