When I last posted about the third floor space, I shared a list of things still to be done. One of those things was an updated light fixture. You saw from my inspiration posts that I was looking for something modern, like the mid-century sputnik styles. I had my eye on
Last week, I'd decided that the cast iron longhorn skull I purchased would definitely make a cool addition to my home - and clearly you
Drumroll, please! After much hard work, we've finally completed painting our entryway. I know I just mentioned it to you guys last week when I revealed
Whether it be the longhorn skull I bought this weekend or the home I posted about last week, you can totally tell that I'm in
My foyer is done being painted and I'm in the process of decorating it for the big reveal! A little secret, I'm actually rushing to
There have been a lot of 'mountain home' discussions this week between Matt and I as we're vacationing here in Colorado. We actually used to
This project has been a long time coming. You guys remember when I found this pair of cane chairs in the trash of a neighbor? Right?
I am totally guilty of getting bored with my bedding easily. I just switched over to all-white bedding this past fall, and LOVED the light
Cool comfort is something that I'm consistently looking for in homes. A minimal, fresh, creative space that still looks like you could really live in
We spent the evening trimming our tree last night, although it didn’t take too much time with the decorations I chose to use this year. Since we were going on vacation and didn’t have too much time with the tree, I didn’t want to go to in great depths with it. I chose to have a simple, rustic type theme this year with no tree ornaments, and just a few minimal, but festive, touches to bring it all together.
My main switch-up this year was to use big colorful bauble lights on the tree instead of my usually white lights with glittery accents.

Very simple accessories like a snow studded wooden star and brass stocking hangers rounded out the simplicity of the look.

I've had this idea lingering in my head for a while. Now, don't make fun of me, but I actually got the idea from the
I have a process that I use for fall decorating that helps transition easily from holiday to holiday without completely tearing one down and setting another one up. There are certain beautiful elements which are really relevant for more than one holiday, and luckily, they overlap right in the middle.
Pumpkins are perfect for both Halloween and Thanksgiving, red berries (and cranberries at that) work really well for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. Using these things to your advantage, means that you won’t be spending you weekends hauling plastic tubs full of holiday decor up and down the stairs, and you’ll spend more time enjoying your handiwork.
I am not really a knick-knack type person. I don’t do Santa figurines, or turkey towels for the guest bathroom, so like to keep things simple and register the change in seasons with new colors, textures and pattern. It works well for me and I think it can work for you two! Here is how I break it down.
