The Hottest Trends for You and Your Home

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!

Aaaand…we’re back. Hope the week has been nothing short of fabulous for you all. I’ve just checked in for my flight (Utah, here I come!) and I’m ready to go off the radar for a couple days! This time of year has a way of catching up to you, but it’s all about enjoying the moments you’ve got. This week, I wanted to share fun little things you can do in a weekend or 10 minutes–just things that will, hopefully, put a smile on your face.

 

I love the simplicity of these painted rocks from Handmade Charlotte. Perfect as table centerpieces, bookshelf knick-knacks or porch step decorations, painted rocks are a cute, easy way to craft with the whole family.

 

 

This gilded bowl tutorial on Julip are the perfect way to add some nature to your home. Even better, they’re the perfect go-to gift for all of those upcoming holiday parties.

 

 

Need party decoration ideas? Check out these adorable donut stools from Studio DIY. I love the bright, playful spin these put on otherwise overlooked seats–doesn’t get much cuter than that.

 

 

I’ve been super into gallery walls lately. Find some inspiration with these DIY art ideas from Poppytalk. I can’t get enough of the colors, the random feel, and the unique pieces used for this wall! I think I’m in love with that pineapple.

 

 

And for a more permanent fixture, take a look at this DIY retro diamond focal wall from Vintage Revivals. I’m definitely excited to paint one of these bad boys someday. LOVE IT.

 

 

And there you have it. Enjoy your week, Style Spotters! Enjoy the little moments.

Happy Friday all! This week, since it’s finally starting to feel like the fall we all know and love, I decided to share some decoration inspiration to help prepare your home for the season ahead!

 

Fall means football (whether that makes you groan or cheer is totally up to you). For your next tailgate, revamp an old aluminum chair with this easy DIY makeover from A Beautiful Mess to make a statement out of your seat! Team colors optional.

 

I love this painted geometric cube porch from Little Green Notebook. It brings just the right amount of style and flair to the most inviting part of your home!

 

 

Always wondered how to dry flowers and never knew quite how? Take a look at this tutorial from Cedar Hill Farmhouse and learn not only how to dry them the right way, but how to use them for decoration as well.

 

 

Nature and fall go hand in hand. DIY Enthusiasts pulled together a list of nature-inspired fall decorations, and I spotted this awesome idea while I was browsing. Such a simple and cute way to add some visual appeal to any empty space in the house!

 

 

Lastly, need inspiration for your tabletop this fall? Look at Aunt Peaches easy ways to spruce up your house with these “golden” tips and tricks.

 

 

Enjoy the week!

Welcome to September! I can’t wait for the leaves to start changing color, the days to get chillier, and the return of jackets and leg warmers and mittens! It’s been far too hot for my taste these past several months, and I’m so excited we’re finally in the home stretch. Among many other things, fall is the beginning of the holiday season. Use these clever tips and tricks to get your home ready for all of those holiday visitors!

 

Entryways are one of the rooms that most often get overlooked. Nalle’s House adds a spunky spin to their entryway with an unconventional design approach! I can’t even tell you how much I love that wallpaper. Guests will be amazed as soon as they step foot into your home!

 

 

If you’re impressed with that, take a look at this bathroom revamp by A Beautiful Mess. An easy-to-create geometric stencil, a few paintbrushes and some of your favorite paint colors are all you need to transform any room in your house into a visual hotspot.

 

 

I am absolutely amazed by these LED Mason Jar lights I spotted on Sarah Hearts. Add a hand-spun twist to your home with this chandelier that is guaranteed to impress! Imagine how perfect that would look in any high-ceiling entry way–your guests would be rooted to the spot!

 

 

Eating a meal with your family and friends is often times one of the most memorable experiences people have together. These fall-themed painted burlap place settings from A Night Owl will be perfect for any upcoming family get-together.

 

 

And lastly, I love the delicate homemade feel of these DIY teacup candles from Hey Gorgeous. Whether you take a trip to your local dollar store or use old cups lying around the house, the handmade touch of these cuties will soften any space in your home, just in time for the holidays.

 

 

Until next time! Have a wonderful week!

Good morning all! With all of the activities that create our crazy lives, it’s hard to find time to do things just for the fun of it. These quick and simple DIY’s will treat you to a little me-time, and great pieces to show for it.

 

I’ve never been much of a carpenter, but even I could make this amazingly simple Leather Handled Cutting Board from Almost Makes Perfect. What starts out as a plain piece of wood turns into a gorgeous testament to your inner craftsman.

 

 

Another in-kitchen idea: decorated tea towels. I know, I know, how overdone…But these Confetti Trail Tea Towels on For The Makers were too cute to pass up. What an easy way to add some color and fun to your kitchen!

 

 

I love mirrors–the crazier the better. These amazingly easy Salvaged Yard Mirrors by Killer B. Designs put a creative new (or old?) twist on your framing options. Who says all that junk in your garage is useless?

 

 

I still really can’t get enough of terrariums and air plant vases. Pile on some color with this super simple Paint-Dip Planters tutorial from Vintage Revivals. I especially love how she hung them on her wall–SO ADORABLE.

 

 

And lastly, I love the look of this coffee table serving tray and drawer from The Design Confidential.  A little more demanding than the others, after you channel your inner craftsman one last time, you’ll have it finished and ready to impress in no time.

 

 

Happy creating! Have a wonderful week!

Happy Friday, Stylespotters! I’ve shared posts with you in the past that are centered around simplicity and nature–this week we’ll do completely the opposite. Get ready for the glamorous, the elegant, the charming, and the sophisticated.

 

This birdcage succulent planter on Craftberry Bush creates a gorgeous and unique way to display some green in your garden or home. I love the cottage-charm feel, and its versatility would lend well to any room or style in the house.

 

 

Among various other trends, I really can’t get enough of glittered anything. I’m happy to admit I was the little girl who wore her Dorothy-style red slippers everywhere, had sparkly notebooks, pencils, and pens during school, and generously sprinkled glitter straight from the jar all over my mom’s living room (side note–glitter is much harder to get out of carpet than just about anything). So when I spotted these DIY glitter shoes on A Beautiful Mess, obviously I had to share.

 

 

Sparkles aside, who doesn’t enjoy a good pampering every so often? These three DIY tropical body scrubs from Henry Happened are the perfect way to wind down after a long day at the office. Sink into a bubble bath, grab a glass of wine, and let the smell of tropical fruit whisk you away to your own exotic paradise.

 

 

Next time you’re looking to revamp your home, try adding some bright color to the walls, furniture, and floors to create a room that’s full of life and excitement. I’m crazy about the style of these happy homes from The Inspired Room.

 

 

And lastly, if you’re like me, you need all the help you can get to make your hair look good. Not only is mine thick and untamed most of the time, I’m awful at styling it in anything more than a messy bun. So for those of us out there who need some help, try these mermaid pearl hairpins from This is Glamorous to add some elegance to your up-do.

 

 

Now go get your glam on! Until next week!
