From My Home To Your: Holiday Wreaths

It’s hard to believe that the holidays upon us. In just a few days, we will be celebrating Thanksgiving with friends and family. Once the turkey settles, thoughts will quickly switch over to Christmas. With less than a month between each holiday, I’ve already started planning a few of my holiday decorations. Last year I created this DIY Rainbow Wreath for my front door using an faux evergreen wreath and glass ornaments. I can’t wait to get this colorful gem back on my front door.

However, I have a few other entry doors and spaces around my home that are in need of a festive touch. Wreaths are a quick and easy way to add festive color and instant holiday cheer. With so many varieties available, you can find several options to match your current decor or have a little courage and try something completely new.

To lend a helping hand, I’ve gathered twelve of my favorite holidays wreaths. From modern to traditional, one of these is certain to beautifully adorn your door and welcome your friends and family into your home.

Which wreath is your favorite? What other ways to you dress up your door for the season?

Happy Holidays!

Hello all! I hope November has introduced itself kindly this year–I know here at least that winter chill turned on like a switch. I love the cold though, so I’m not going to complain–unless it doesn’t snow soon. Then I’ll complain. I’m feeling particularly earthy today, so I thought I’d share some recycled wood projects for the crafts-people out there. Good luck!

 

First of all, project aside, this puppy is absolutely adorable. Build this fun modern pet bed for your pooch with this tutorial from A Beautiful Mess. I love the bright colors and bold pattern, but you can make it blend with your decor just as easily!

 

 

Looking for a fresh spin in your living room? Try this recycled barn door coffee table from Cleverly Inspired. Bring a bit of rustic flair inside your home and get a fun hand-crafted piece all in one!

 

 

For a more subtle wooden touch, try these pallet wood wall pieces from Craftberry Bush. I like the subtle, washed-out look and the relaxing, brown tones showing through underneath–perfect for adding some calm to your room.

 

 

These wooden crate stairs from Funky Junk Interiors are so unique and fun! I absolutely love this idea. Hit a couple antique shops or thrift stores and see if you can find some fun crates to incorporate into your new stairwell!

 

 

And lastly, if you’re looking for that missing piece of flair in your bedroom, take a look at this modern headboard design from Fresh American Style. While the completely white look soothes, funky mix-matched colors would add some oomf to your space!

 

 

And there you have it. Until next time, Style Spotters! Happy crafting–the trees thank you!

Organize With This: Autumn Inspired Storage

I know that some of you may already be thinking ahead to the holiday season, but I am just not ready to play that game yet.  The air is just starting to get crisp, the leaves have fallen and crunch underfoot and hot apple cider is constantly flowing.  There is something so magical about the current time of the year, and so much to appreciate and enjoy.  Simple pleasures include curling up in front of the fire with a cozy throw and a favorite book, or baking up a warm fall treat.

Often times, as the seasons shift, so does the interior of our home.  Just as I may add vibrant floral pillows to our sofa in the spring, I also love to add subtle fall textures and finishes during autumn and winter months.  Flannel blankets, faux fur pillows, scented candles and woven baskets all make an appearance within the walls of our home.

This year gold will continue to shine, however, copper will also strive to share the spotlight.  Additional autumn inspired finishes include flannel, felt and wool, worn leather, soft linen, raw wood, mercury glass and aged brass.

Feeling inspired by the textures and finishes that we use to decorate our home this time of the year, I thought I would pull together my favorite autumn inspired storage solutions that will look fabulous year round.

From My Home to Yours: Table Lamps

As I’ve mentioned here on Style Spotters, I have a slight obsession with light fixtures. In the past, I’ve shared my favorite chandeliers, so today I thought it would be fun to show you my latest table lamp finds.

Lighting is such an important element when decorating. Whether it’s a table lamp, wall sconce, or ceiling fixture, what you choose for illumination can go a long way in adding the polish and sparkle that make a space come together. I like to think of lighting as the jewelry in a room. As with other home accessories, I’m always on the hunt for unique and beautiful fixtures that will stand the test of time.

One of my favorite lamps currently resides in my living room. I went with the bold choice of teal on teal. With my neutral walls, it’s the perfect pop of color in my space. My rule of thumb is to go with pieces that you love, and they will eventually make their way to the perfect spot in your home.

Since, my home is well outfitted with table lamps, I thought I’d just do some Internet browsing today and share what I found. Enjoy!

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12

Do you like picking out lighting as much as I do? What table lamps are you loving these days?

Good morning and happy Friday, Style Spotters! I hope the past week was filled with all of the wonderful happenings of fall: hot cider, apple pie, crunchy leaves, Halloween costumes, and because I’m feeling bold today, I’ll say it–I can’t wait to see some snow! In the meantime, I’m so excited to be back sharing some fantastic tutorials, amazing inspiration and all-around gorgeous stuff with you all today!

 

I love the look and fabric of this DIY Bedside Bench from A Beautiful Mess. While I’m all about southwest-inspired prints, it would be so easy to add colors and patterns that match existing decor in your bedroom, mud room or living room.

 

 

If you’re still looking for that final fall decoration, you can’t really go wrong with pumpkins and glitter. Try this Floral and Glitter Pumpkin Tutorial from Homey Oh My! to add a little jazz to your table this week.

 

 

For special occasions, try this fresh spin on flowers from Paper & Stitch. Their DIY Fabric Bouquet will make the perfect hostess gift for any of your friends, and add a little bit of brightness to any room in the house.

 

 

I think this DIY Envelope Liner tutorial on The Crafted Life is brilliant–what a fun way to add an even more personal touch to handwritten notes or cards for your friends and family.

 

 

And because we all need something to lust over for the week, look at this amazing kitchen on Decor8. I can’t get enough of that rustic-but-modern look–I see a spot for my southwestern bench in this kitchen!

 

 

Until next week, everyone!
