Decorating Plans

I really like making design boards. I cannot imagine trying to pick flooring, lighting, and paint without creating a design board to hash out all the ideas my head is constantly filled with (mostly due to Pinterest). Working with what I already have, and wanting to keep costs low, I opted for inexpensive lighting and flooring. I kept paint colors to a minimum. I did spend money on things like quality plumbing fixtures. I also need to move in soon, so I tried to choose things that were easy to install. ENTRYWAY, LIVING ROOM, HALLWAY To completely understand what I was initially working with, I have to share the photos of the house originally (when still occupied by the previous owners). There was no way I was moving in here as it was. To keep things simple and easy I chose two paint colors, Benjamin Moore’s White Dove for the north side of the house, and Benjamin Moore’s Chantilly Lace for the south side of the house. The flooring is Pergo Outlast in Vintage Tobacco. …

Christmas Decorations

I tried to wait till after Thanksgiving to decorate but I couldn’t so Thanksgiving was Christmas themed. Decorating is always more fun with friends and in the past I have helped my friends and family decorate their homes. This year my friends and I had a great time decorating. The only thing I purchased this year were three gold deer. I have an entire tree and a lot more decor that I will be giving away because there just isn’t room for anything else. It was fun seeing how my decorations fit in this house. It was also fun seeing how the decorations looked with the new furniture and decor. Photographs do not do Christmas trees justice. This tree looks so full and pretty in person. The ceiling is too low for my finial topper, so I had to improvise with two star ornaments. SHOP THIS POST

Fall Tablescape

Keeping with the earth tones, this year’s fall tablescape is muted and simple. Creams and browns fit this space much better than the orange decor I used last year. I sold a lot of fall decor before moving here and gave away a few things after. I kept the glass and mercury glass pumpkins for the table and china cabinet. Then I put a few glass pumpkins around other parts of the house. I thought I would make it till after Thanksgiving to put up my Christmas decor, but it’s killing me and I’m giving in this weekend. I cannot wait to see this little space bursting with garland, trees, and Christmas colors. SHOP THIS POST
