A Fall Cornucopia

Just had to share my fall cornucopia that I found at @HomeDepot for a bargain!! I paired it with my Turkeys and my ever-present pig for a festive corner in the kitchen. Just goes to show, you never know what you’ll stumble upon!

My Foyer Project. Introducing Major Color!

My front entry doesn’t have any windows and I felt like the colors that were there before were starting to look a little dark and dated.  My tastes seem to be changing and I felt the need for more color.  So a fresh coat of paint in a vibrant teal was my choice, driven mainly by the fabric I had chosen to re-cover my settee in.  I already had everything on the wall with the mirror, I just needed to change out the accessories.  I’m pleased with the results and the antique gold mirror that came from my in-laws home really pops now. Having the brightly colored walls takes away from things getting too stuffy.  Plus, I’ve always loved chinoisserie, but in this color palette it feels more light-hearted and contemporary. 

My favorite indoor fall arrangement

I use this urn throughout the year with different elements to suit the season. My little pumpkin person is one of my favorites to perch amongst the foliage and such. I love to create a large statement arrangement like this, the key however is to find the most realistic silk and faux items as possible. Happy Fall!

Pink in the Bathroom!

From @christinabruceinteriors

The use of pink here in this bathroom is just so refreshing.  The traditional elements like the honeycomb floor tile and plain white rectangular tile, brought all the way up to the ceiling keeps a simple palette to let the stars like the vanity and the gold hardware to shine.  How about that light fixture?! An unexpected modern element mixed with the traditional really gives a truly curated feel.  

Lettuceware

I have accumulated a small-ish collection of lettuceware over the years.  Just something about the leafy pattern endears it to me.  I have mine displayed on the shelves in my pantry during the summer months. I was excited to see that @Toryburch was re-issuing the classic pattern in both green and pink.  If you are a collector, I also have some pieces on The Hive Shop.  Check them out!

Remember, if you are displaying collections, make them the star and keep other non-related items simple and minimal.

Beautiful Rustic Bathroom

@Pinteret

I love everything about this rustic inspired bathroom.  We used salvaged beams for a wine cellar, but I think this use as a counter is genius!  Even the notched out area used for a towel is so clever. Keeping all the other elements simple here really allows that stone wall and counter to shine.  Just beautiful!

Great use of color in a Kitchen

Image from Pinterest

This kitchen shows great use of colors and textures.  The various shades of green, which are warm and welcoming take away from what would otherwise be monotone if only one shade were used.  Also, the use of various textures, wood counters, soapstone, natural wood under the sink and beams create a rustic yet very put together feeling.  The attention to detail, like the trim around the windows, the paneled wall behind the stove and the furniture like ‘feet’ on the cabinets make this a unique and beautiful space!

Tulips to Carrots?! A Great Idea for Front Door Spring Decor

I saw this on Pinterest and just had to share!  Such a clever idea and alternative to the traditional wreath.

This is just so creative.  Silk tulips are in abundance in spring in most craft stores.  I would probably suggest buying the ‘bunch’ variety and a few singles for length to make it more economical.  I will definitely be making this for myself, maybe mixing up with a different bow or such.  I will post my results when I am able as I am still house-bound in recovery from my accident.  Have you tried this?  I’d love to see your results!
