    Fall Island Centerpiece

    Hi, friends! It’s  fall and I’m so excited to share this beautiful centerpiece arrangement that sits beautifully on our kitchen island. For all you decorators out there, if you’re planning to make a centerpiece for fall this year, I totally suggest investing in a pretty vase. I personally invested in this large vase because I felt like the vase is a piece I’ll be using season to season, all year long! Inside the vase are stems! Stems like this are a great way to add a festive fall touch to any space. I used a combination of stems to add a variety and mixture to the centerpiece. Some I’ve had for years that are…

    Vintage Clowns

    Many of you already know the back story regarding me and  vintage clown decor for Halloween. However, for those of you who don’t, I want to share! I’ve been around antiques my entire life, and I’ve always thought old clowns were a bit creepy! A few months ago, I was walking around an antique mall when these vintage clowns jumped out at me! They’re the perfect colors for our living room and give me that creepy vibe that I love for October 31!! It’s a bit out of the box for sure. Using clowns for decor is brave, even if it is Halloween. In fact, this turned out to be one of…

    DIY Pumpkin Garland

    What you’ll need: (All of it’s linked!) Pumpkins Craft Twine  Sharpie (Optional) I wanted to add a little pumpkin garland to our fall mantel! I love all the festive things so why not add a few more pumpkins to the living room. With our mantel being black I decided to sharpie in a little black to these pumpkins but that’s totally optional. All I did was wrap the craft twine around base of the pumpkin stem. The stem on these pumpkins sorta lift up so it worked out perfectly. (If this didn’t work, I was fully prepared to break out my hot glue gun) I spaced each pumpkin on the…

    Fall Mantel – Man on the moon

    This year I wanted to mix subtle Halloween vibes and bright fall colors in our home to display the best of both worlds! I thought the mantel in our living room was the perfect place to combine the two looks. To achieve my fall vision, I went with dark neutrals and bright foliage in a vase, and I absolutely love how it turned out. The faux stems add the perfect amount of whimsical fall touches to the room. Personally, I think the candle holders exhibit both Halloween and autumn vibes, so these were the perfect addition to my mantel decor. The Man on the Moon has to be my favorite piece in the entire…

    Pampas Grass

    Pampas grass is a fall game changer. Funny thing – using it was actually my mom’s idea. She came to visit me last year and I asked her to make me a wreath so she went out in my yard and cut some pampas grass. Immediately, I was in LOVE!! It was one of the most beautiful wreaths I’ve ever seen. She cut a few extra stems for me to add into my fall decor decor to blend in the look.  I love that it’s neutral yet fluffy! I’ve recently learned it comes in several pretty shades of cream. That creamy neutral just blends with any Autumn color. Honestly you…

Weather it’s you and your fur baby or significant other or maybe you’ve got a million grandkids, those beautiful faces are sure to brighten your walls and heart! For a while I sadly got away from using pictures of us as decor in our home. So I decided to make up for that lost time in a big way! Poster size, babe!!  Yep, I had poster size pictures of me and Aaron printed! Of course I chose two of my favorite pictures. One of us taken for the GRAM in the garden with my iPhone and the other is a…

    Painting the Living Room Window Black

    Our Favorite Window This window is in many ways a signature of our home. It’s an identity of our home. No matter the season, folks know it’s our living room as soon as they spot this window. This pretty lookout was added to our 100 year old home by a previous owner years ago. It overlooks our back property and it’s one of my favorite things about the house.  A New Paint Trend This window was previously white, but we decided to change things up a bit and give the black window trend a try.  We love it!! As you know, there are lots of black accents in our home, so this…
