I had the pleasure of designing the theme, color pallet and furnish this entire, newly built home. The homeowner was a dream to work with and is very happy with the look and feel of his new home. He wanted a Rustic, Modern Farmhouse with a touch of Industrial flair. I think we hit the mark.

I love the onset of fall. It’s my favorite season…. sweater weather, boots, bon-fires, leaves changing, pumpkin spice everything, rich warm toned colors…. what’s not to love? I’ve started decorating my home and front porch for fall. I’m leaning toward the “less is more” simplicity this year. I feel like it gives touches of seasonal vibes while maintaining some elegance.
Somehow the subdued, monochromatic hues don’t feel like fall to me. We decided to plant some vibrant yellow mums in our porch planters and add some orange pumpkins and a touch of purple mums as well. Now our porch is starting to feel a little more “Autum-ish”. 🍁.
May your journey always lead you home. I loved these words so much I had to take this wooden sign home with me. These words are very fitting today…. my husband leaves for Korea this afternoon, where he will reside for the next year. This will be a tough day for the kids and I as we say goodbye to him. We will pray for his safe journey, over the next 12 months, and his safe return next August. Military families are very proud of their loved ones and are very strong….even on days like today.
I’ve been working on finishing our master bedroom. For some reason this is the space that I neglect the most. The rest of the house seems to be a priority and our bedroom comes last. I don’t know why. Lol. I’ve painted the sleigh bed and an accent wall, ordered the custom sign from #qbhome and redesigned the night stands. It’s a work in progress. 🙂 Slowly but surely….
Every year I change the theme and colors I use to decorate for Christmas. I still use most of the basic decor I’ve used before but I change the accent colors and add something new each year. I’ve started decorating this year and wanted a peaceful, calm color-scheme- using gold, white and greenery throughout the house. I’m also adding a touch of red in my kitchen and formal living room. Here are a few photos of what I’ve done so far.
We have been on a roll in November! We are so honored to have been featured on Antique Farmhouse’s IG Page. We purchase a lot of decor from their online shop and love the quality and their unique finds.
I found this little end table at Ross and bought it because I liked the lines of the base/legs. But I wasn’t in love with the very plain tabletop so I added a tray as the top instead! I found this sweet, wooden tray at Pottery Barn and it fit perfectly. I think it really finishes off the table and adds some unexpected character! What do you think?
