So as I mentioned in yesterdays post, where I shared a simple fall centerpiece. We have an “in-between” table in the dining room. I’ll be sharing plans soon for what I have in mind in the dining room. Our new table is on it’s way, but I’m still contemplating a new paint color or not for our walls. More on that soon, but in the meantime here is the story on “the little table that could” and the simple farmhouse makeover I gave it. [Read more…]
Sometimes it can be a bit confusing to figure out what to put on your dining room table that will last all through fall. While faux florals are always a great option, it’s nice to have an alternative. I love decorating with pumpkins because they last a long time. I usually stack a few on my dining room table mid-September, and they last all the way up to Thanksgiving. I love it because unlike real flowers, these don’t die. I can kind of set it and forget it! Which in my opinion is the best kind of decor. Today I’m sharing a simple fall centerpiece that anyone can create and enjoy. [Read more…]
So I had a completely different post scheduled for today, but you know what I just had to share what I have been crushing on lately. I love floor plans! Like guys, I really LOVE floor plans. When I was thirteen, my dad let my sisters and I each pick out our own game for the computer. While my sisters were looking at actual games, in the game section, I searched and search for the perfect software that would allow me to decorate my own house. Unfortunately at that time, they didn’t really have anything close to that available, so I took what I could find. A software program where you could create floor plans, and place furniture in those spaces. My dad looked at me with this puzzled look and asked “if I was sure about this”. And with every bit of confidence I said YES! I couldn’t wait to try it out, lol. So I guess you could say from a very early age I loved looking at floor plans. Planning out the layout for each space, and designing it with the finishing touches in my head. While we aren’t looking to build, or moving for that matter, it doesn’t matter. Sometimes I just get swept up in the mindset of dreaming and “what-ifs”, and I just love it! The possibility, the design, starting from scratch, everything. So today I’m sharing with you 10 Modern Farmhouse floor plans that I love, because well, that’s what I have been crushing on lately. [Read more…]
If you caught yesterdays post, or follow me on Instagram, then you’ve probably caught wind that I sold our dining room table. Yep! I mentioned it to the hubby in a quick phone call, got the ok, listed it on Facebook and someone came the next day to pick it up! I guess the good news is, with a quick transaction, it leaves no time for second thoughts. I had been contemplating changing things up for over a year now, and I just needed to rip the bandaid off, so to speak. I love our dining room! I love everything in our dining room, but as anyone in our house knows, nothing is safe, and will most likely be changed or moved around at some point. To me home decor is like having different outfits. I have so much fun changing out accessories, or trying new curtains, bringing in new lamps. All of that for me is like trying on a new outfit. I like to online browse a lot! It’s a hobby of mine, that also sometimes turns into a job. So today I’m sharing with you 10 Farmhouse style dining tables that I love, and think you will too.

YEP! I know some of you are probably going “Whaaaaat?!” right about now. Friends we sold our dining room table, and bench I might add! If your asking yourself why in the world would I do such a thing like that, allow me to recap while I share some of my very favorite photos of our dining room table with you. Sort of like a good bye tribute, because lets face it, I loved our farmhouse table, that we built, but it’s time to move on. [Read more…]
Hello Friends!! As I’ve been slowly making the switch over in our home decor for fall, there have been some items that have caught my eye lately. It’s been awhile since I’ve shared some Home Decor finds I’m loving right now, so I put together a little round up of some fall home decor I’m loving right now. Some of it is specific to fall, and some of it could be used all year round. However that is my favorite type of decor. A mix of season specific things, and things I just simply love! In case you missed it I shared some seasonal tips on how to style your coffee table, HERE, and you can also see this years fall home tour HERE. Since I’ve bee decorating for fall, and doing my own fair share of fall nesting I wanted to share with you some fall decor I’m loving right now. [Read more…]

I have some exciting news to share with you today! I am so excited to be apart Balsam Hill’s Splendor of Autumn tour. Each day this week, one blogger will be sharing how they welcome autumn with some beautiful pieces from Balsam Hill.
I teamed up with Balsam Hill last Christmas, and was so impressed by the quality of their pieces. I always say that if you are going to go with faux florals, make sure they are good quality and the most realistic. Balsam Hill has a beautiful collection this fall, and I’m so excited because at the end of this post there is a GIVEAWAY to win some beautiful fall decor for your own home! Be sure to stay tuned and I’ll share how you can enter at the end of this post.
The morning were crisp, the days were cool, with the softest breeze flowing through our windows. I really thought fall was here to stay, and then BAM! We are hit with 90 degree days. Our leaves are turning into the most beautiful display autumn has to offer, and these hot and humid days have me closing our windows and turning the AC back on, ugh! Thankfully cooler temps are supposed to be back by the end of this week. So to help them along, I’m sharing my outdoor patio space decorated for fall along with 14 other bloggers and our friends at Joss & Main, part of their #designtheoutdoorsevent. [Read more…]
I’m so excited to be sharing with you some more of our home decorated for fall! Their truly is a sense of “fall nesting” that takes over as cooler weather approaches. The need for wanting to create warm, cozy spaces to embrace you during the colder months ahead, is something I love to do for my family. Since we start to turn our focus on spending time indoors together, I love making sure our spaces are ready to accommodate all of our families needs. This means making sure cozy throw blankets are fully stocked and that there is one for everybody. I’m joining my friends from the bHome app in the final day of our Fall Home Tour Series. [Read more…]
I’ve slowly been adding bits of fall around our house. As I shared last week in my coffee table styling post, I like making subtle seasonal changes throughout my rooms to celebrate the upcoming season. I’ve been adding in some richer colored throw pillows, and cozy knits, not to mention a pumpkin here and there. Today I’m teaming up with my friends for another round of the Seasons of Home series as we all share our fall living rooms. [Read more…]
I am so excited to tell you about a brand new collaboration. I’ve teamed up with Bliss & Tell Branding Co. to bring you an exclusive collection of Logos + Prints business set. If you caught my post yesterday then perhaps you are at the point where you are ready to pull the trigger on your new adventure! Or perhaps you have taken the leap and are putting in the hours of hard work to see your dream take off. I remember so well the excitement that came in the early days of starting my business. The possibilities, and the dreaming were endless, and so was the work. But it felt so good, so encouraging to be taking a leap towards a huge dream I had had, to help clients “Love the space they Live in.” [Read more…]
After sharing my heart a bit here on the blog, I’ve heard from quite a few of you how encouraged you are to pursue your dream. Maybe it’s starting your own blog? Or opening up a shop, or starting your own business. And maybe it’s knowing when to close some doors on one end, because that season is over, and new doors are about to open. For whatever reason I’ve felt inspired to share my heart ramblings on this subject, even though I don’t quite feel equipped too sometimes. Yet, I know God uses it. My vulnerability on the subject, just sharing some simple encouragement because I was once in those shoes myself, and if I’m being honest with myself, there are times I still am. Needing simple encouragement to keep going, to press on, to take the leap, to not be afraid. [Read more…]
A few weeks ago I shared how I change up the decor on our entryway bench seasonally. It’s subtle, and quite simple, and a great way to make a change in my decor to mark a new season. I always say that I decorate more seasonally vs. for specific holidays. This allows my decor to stay up for months at a time, yes even after Christmas, instead of only a few days or a week. Even though we still have another week or so to go before it’s officially declared fall, I’ve begun sprinkling little bits of fall throughout our home. Yesterday I shared my fall tablescape with nontraditional colors celebrating the beginning of the turn of our leaves outside. And as I get ready to start subtly swapping things over in our living room, I thought I would share with you how I make that change on our coffee table each season. So today I’m sharing with you how I decorate seasonally on our coffee table. [Read more…]
