Peppermint Parlor

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around my house! I have been preparing for this year’s whimsical theme for quite some time, so it is exciting to finally see it up! I originally decided to do Elves and Candy, thinking everything would be red and green. As I started looking and shopping, I…

Fall Transitions

In my last post Autumn Leaves, I suggested checking back for more Fall decor touches around the house. Here you go! After finishing the Dining room look, I went into the Living room, Great room and Kitchen. In the living room, the transition was as simple as adding a sunflower pillow and filling the large…

Autumn Leaves

After our last summer dinner party on Labor Day, it was time to say goodby to the Summer is Buzzing decor. After using the dining room for a party is always a good time to change over seasonal decor. The dishes are being washed, the table needs a good clean, so take it all away…

Take Your Time

Some people like things right now, and some are willing to wait. When developing a theme, if you want instant gratification, go ahead and buy the whole look! If that isn’t your way, you don’t have the funds, or you don’t like everything matchy-matchy, enjoy the journey of accruing pieces over time! When developing a…

Fun with Chairs

As I looked through my past decor looks, I realized my dining chair fabrics did not always work well with the themes. While I love the fabrics and they coordinate and repeat throughout the house, the arm chair fabric especially can distract or compete with the dining room decor or theme colors. After considering the…

Summer is BUZZING

As I cleaned up after a party, I took the opportunity to change out the May Black & White look to the Summer seasonal decor. I cleared the table and cleaned the glass. You will see in the background of the following photos that I didn’t actually put everything away. I get so excited to…

While there are countless styles and places to buy furniture, there is something…

Party Time!

We will be hosting a Party to celebrate the birthdays of our son and daughter-in-law. They created the guest list and my husband & I along with my parents (both great cooks) will provide the dinner and service restaurant style! To personalize the decor for them, I made a simple change by swapping out the…

POP of Color

The beauty of decorating with Black & White (see previous article) is the ease of changing the look with a POP of Color. It is as simple as changing out the napkin! For Mother’s Day, I exchanged the black napkins with a fuchsia pink. What a beautiful transformation! The color will change again for a…

Black & White

We are hosting a dinner for our son and his wife with their guests next month. I wanted it to feel different than our usual decor and thought a Black & White theme would be fun. When designing the look in my mind, I wanted a simple and more modern look, so I chose big…
