Our New Arrival!

I haven't been posting in a while because of this wonderful blessing!

My daughter, Miss Annalise Kathryn Parson arrived January 13th, at 1:07 am via c-section. She weighed 7 pounds 13 ounces, and measured 19 inches long. She's perfectly healthy, and we are so in love with our little princess! 

(My husband took these photos of her Saturday, January 16th, before we left the hospital.) 

It's All About Gold!

So, in my last posts I was talking about how gold is everywhere right now! Well, I was shopping this past Saturday for my baby girl's nursery, and I came across all these amazing gold accessories at Hobby Lobby! I just fell in love! So now I'm pondering how I can incorporate any this super cute gold decor? I'll keep you undated!

Client's Entryway Update!

Just finished this clients entryway, and I'm so glad she loves it!

The table was purchased off of Craig's List. The client wanted a one of a kind piece that we could teak to make her own. The table was refinished from natural wood color to painted white for a fresh modern look. The legs and knobs were added after they were spray painted gold. 

Then it was off to a trip to Home Goods to find accessories. The navy blue vases came from there. The gold lamp and gold decorative ball came from Target. And the stunning mirror was ordered from Overstock. The client wanted some yellow- so we incorporated it in the flowers. 

I love how the flowers and accessories bring fun pops of color against the freshly painted walls. (Paint color: Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter.) 

It was a fun project to work on! 

The Trend is Gold!

Gold is all the rage right now, and is being used more and more for accent pieces and accessories in living rooms, bedrooms, and especially in nurseries. But, for those of us that lived during the 90's- when the gold/brass color was the thing-decorating with gold can be a bit scary! 
These days styling with gold accents can be so classy because of all the beautiful pieces out there!

Here are a few great examples (found online) of how today's gold decor can look!

Holiday Coffee Table Decor

One of my favor decor things to do is change out my coffee table decor for different holidays!
I always keep the same basic pieces: the candles, candles sticks, and white tray. Then I add decor according to the themed holiday. Below is normal coffee table decor that I have up for most of the year. 

Then for Valentine's Day, I change out the flowers, but keep the same vase. I add new pink and red pillows and a Valentine's banner on the fire place. It changes the entire look! 

 During Christmas season, I took out my glass square vase and replaced it with an apothecary jar fill with festive silver and gold balls. Then I covered the tray with different textured greenery and a few extra large Christmas ornaments. By using different textures in my greenery it added depth and interest to the arrangement.

You can do this with any holiday! The possibilities are endless! Just incorporate your favorite color holiday decor with a few of your normal decor pieces!

Dining Room Table Display!

I'm sad to take down my dining room Christmas decorations, but super excited to welcome in the New Year with all it's happy things that await! Especially since our baby girl will be arriving sometimes before the 14th of January!

For my dining room tablescape,  I used a lot of different pieces that all had the same color pallet, but different textures. I used glass, glitter, ceramics, mesh, and mirrors, and fabric. They all worked together to create a winter wonderland look.

A Magical Christmas!

Welcome to my home during Christmas! Like, most I love decorating for the holidays! 

(First, I have to say, I apologize for sharing this a little late- But being pregnant during the holidays, with complications really set me back with my blog posting.) 

One of my favor decorations is the my fireplace garland I bought several years ago from Hobby Lobby.  The garland came with different types of greenery, but it was all the same color green. So I bought other shades of green, including some flocked stems, and added to the garland. Then I added silver ribbons and silver ornament balls. Just by doing these simple things- my garland looked so much better!!! I encourage you to give it try next year!
