Neutral Patio Decor

I have really enjoyed decorating the patio area. I have a few things for spring and summer and I went all out for fall, purchasing pillow covers, signs, a floral arrangement, and lighted ceramic pumpkins. Since I decided to move away from the burlap and farmhouse style Christmas decor, I decided to use all of it on the patio. I just purchased a Christmas garden flag and two pillow covers. After Christmas I realized that I did not have any decor for winter. My spring and fall decor coordinates with Colter’s sofa cushions but when purchasing Christmas decor, I just ignored the brightly colored fabric and found pillow covers in red and green. I continued ignoring the bright fabric when searching for the winter decor. My mom purchased the cream and black “Just Chillin” pillow for me when we first moved in so I brought it back out and decided to carry the black and cream to the rest of the patio. I found the inexpensive cream and black pillow covers on Amazon. They would …

Makeover Update: Den

Well, I knew it. I knew if I did not paint the den right when we moved in, it would not get done. I lied to myself prior to getting the sofa, thinking I would paint before it was delivered. I didn’t paint. I’m pretty sure I’m not going to anytime soon or ever. I just don’t feel like. It’s just too messy. The walls do not look as warm in person. They are warmer than I would like, but they aren’t lime green so I don’t feel like if I do not paint, I will go crazy. The space has turned into an eclectic mix of Asian, traditional, and rustic decor. Most everything is from family members or homemade. The sofa turned out great. It is aesthetically pleasing and comfortable. We have spent a lot of time in the den watching TV and taking naps (well, Matt takes naps). If the decor wasn’t given to me by a family member, it most likely came from TJMaxx or Homegoods. The media cabinet, floor lamp, and …

Silver and Gold: Dining Room Christmas Decor

Well I am missing a couple of little gold Christmas trees (Target has failed me), but I think I’m done with the dining room. I found these little gold deer back in October on TJMaxx online. The silver antler candlesticks are from TJMaxx (about three years ago) and the table runner (that needs to be ironed) and napkins are from Target. All the mercury glass trees came from TJMaxx and Homegoods (from different years) and I purchased more of the mercury glass votives from West Elm. I found four silver hammered napkin rings and four silver shiny napkin rings so I just used them together. I am not crazy about the plates because they are too casual but I can easily use them since they are stoneware and they coordinate well with the gold on the table. I had some magnolias sitting around so I decided to use them as a centerpiece. I found this floral arrangement for $600 and attempted to recreate it. My mom had some budding stems and I need more but …
