One of the simplest ways to freshen up a space is to change out the throw pillows. Now, this would get costly and clutter up your home real fast if you just bought a pillow every time. However, one of my favorite ways to change out throw pillows is to use pillow covers instead of actual pillows where possible. My go-to stores for this are Hobby Lobby and H & M. Often times, Hobby Lobby has them on sale for 50% off which brings down the price to just...

Recently, my son turned one and I can't even tell you how fast that first year went by. If you have kids, I'm sure you can relate. Even if you don't, it seems time goes by faster as you get older. Anyways, we had a small family birthday party for him. We kept it relatively simple with easy crock pot foods like pulled pork and salads and I wasn't even going to do much decorating or have a theme. Well, the designer in me ended up having way...

Welcome to part 2 of my Christmas home tour! If you missed part 1, you can check it out here. For this half of the tour, I will be showing you our second floor living space including our kitchen and dining area. I kept everything a little more neutral here using a lot of champagne accents with just a few touches of red. As you walk up the stairs, I added garland with lights, ribbon and champagne poinsettias to the banisters. On the back of our front door (which is...

'Tis the season for sparkling lights, the smell of fresh balsam (or fraser fir depending on your tree), fuzzy blankets and a cup of hot cocoa cuddled up on the couch by the fire, watching Christmas movies.

It means I can have a whole lot of glitter and sparkling lights and what girl doesn't love sparkly? :) When I was a kid, I used to take all...

I had been looking for a wicker chair that wasn't too expensive for some time when I finally came upon this one while driving. It had missing wicker in a few small spots and the red color didn't quite fit in with my decor but it wasn't anything I couldn't take on. Here's the original wicker chair. Not terrible but certainly not great either. See the missing wicker? It took some brainstorming to figure out what I could use to replace the missing wicker pieces. My first thought was skewers but those...

Well, it's officially Fall here in New England and has been for about a month now so I'm a little late in posting this but you'll have to forgive me; still trying to figure out this whole mom thing. :) Fall is probably my second favorite season following Summer. I love the changing colors on the trees; beautiful reds, yellows and oranges. I love how you can bring so many things from outdoors to decorate with; acorns, wheat, twigs, pinecones. Most of all, I love how it's the season...
