I experimented with some functional vignettes in my kitchen this weekend. I wanted something that saved counter space and brought some aesthetic appeal. I was inspired after visiting numerous kitchen vendors while helping my parents embark on a renovation of their own last week. There are so many ways to use trays to group things together for organization and beautiful displays.
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.
This one won’t last long! Offered by Chilton Homes, KW.
Staged a lovely home for KW this weekend. Marketing tip: make your own wine labels with your business logo and use when staging homes! If you look closely you’ll see ours!
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.
What do you get when you combine a $1 plastic Jock-o-lantern and $5 Mums? A fun and whimsical front porch decoration. Look for the easy instructions below!
First, I purchased 2 plastic jack-o-lanterns for $1 each. Then I found the Mums that I wanted to use. I found them for $4.95 each.
Next, I spray painted the jack-o-lanterns with a bronze spray paint I already had- and let them dry thoroughly. You could use any spray paint color you want to or you could leave them orange. Then, I cut the plastic container from the mums so I could slide them into the jack-o-lanterns.
I have two large planters on either side of my front door and chose to set the mums on top of them. But, you could use them anywhere. You could also choose different sizes and group them together. I think these would make great gifts too!
A basket of pumpkins for a warm Fall greeting in our entryway. I love to mix different textures; burlap, cotton, a feathered two and something metallic to add some artistic interest.
A pretty Vignette in a staged home in Colorado Springs. This home was a flip and they did such n amazing job transforming this property!
It's all in the details! Sometimes something as simple as an apple can add that needed color or dimension that a space needs to feel "right". I love the cool tones of this kitchen but the island needed to be warmed up with a pop of color from green apples! 🙂
