My Christmas Home Tour…

image

This is overdue and please bare with the semi fuzzy images but here is a bit of how I decorated for the holidays. My tree is gaining more of a peacock theme each year. This year I added peacock feathers from Pier 1 which I love. I prefer over the top trees like department stores. That’s just my preference when it comes to Christmas trees….

image

image

I have been collecting my same colors for about 11 years now. I have always wanted cobalt and royal blue trees but people would gift me the wrong colors, so the last few years I incorporated more turquoise and teal…

image

These are some of my favorite ornmaments…

image

image

These were the new ornaments I picked from AtHome. I love these so much. It’s weird but I find myself staring at them especially at night when the blue lights are shining down. The jewels remind me of the type of jewelry I wear. I like it big!

image

image

The actual peacocks came from Michael’s some years ago…

image

image

image

I also bought a few new disco ball ornaments from AtHome as well…

image

The tree skirt is also from AtHome. Sorry the weather has been bad the last couple weekends where I couldn’t take pictures in natural lighting for the best shots. When it was sunny, I wasn’t home. I will take more pics of the skirt later….

image

If you saw the post the other day, this is my console table which I left simple. I just added the wooden skis from Target.

image

I only added a small glittered tree cande on my side table from AtHome…

image

If you follow along on instagram, here are a few glimpses of my bar cart. The candycane straws came from Target, ornaments from AtHome…

image

I bought a glittered reindeer from Michael’s to adorn the coffee table….

image

image

I outfitted some wine bottles with furry shrugs and bottle toppers from Pier 1. I decided to use this tree topper from AtHome on top of another wine bottle (hidden in an adorable bag). It makes everything a bit more festive…

Please excuse this awful photo but the wreath is from AtHome and it’s gorgeous in person. Super sparkly and I hung it with glittered ribbon. When the drapery panels is opened on the sides, it looks the best it just doesn’t translate that way on camera. I still have a couple other places to show you this week, like my ornate framed chalkboard and bathroom. Stay tuned!

My Christmas Home Tour Sneak Peak

image

Hello. I had another post in mind for today but will do it tomorrow instead. Here are a couple sneak peaks of how I decorated at home. I have a few more things to do though and when the weekend is here and it’s some sunny natural light, I will take pictures and share.

I just love my side table I scooped up from AtHome. As you can see, someone is a sleeping beauty.

Stay tuned for more!

My semi done DIY computer table turned bar cart

image

Over the weekend my client canceled so I was able to start a project around the house. That project is my old computer desk that has rollers. I figured some adhesive marble paper and gold paint could give it new life. Before I moved last month, I put the marble on the top and keyboard tray area. I really like how the metallic gold looks now with everything

image

I still have to finish the bottom obviously but once I do, I will do a post about it. I also have to style it better. This is a “mean time” sorta display. I am having company over Saturday and plan to have it all finished!

image

image

Of course, bottles of vodka and wine will be present soon. Right now they are cooling in the ‘fridge. 🍷 I will keep you posted when it’s finished.

Happy Christmas Eve!

image

Today I am bombarding you with recent pins and inspiration for the holidays. This is only one post but there will be one on wrapping ideas and tree decorating. Plus I will show you what I done at home and scenes from a party I attended over the weekend. Clearly, your homes are already finished but you can get ideas for next year and color schemes you can shop for Friday when everything is on sale. So if Christmas isn’t your thing….come back Friday for part 2 of get-2-gether party ideas. If you haven’t already, part 1 is about wine and cheese tasting ideas.

Nautical Industrial Living Room Design

image

image

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I’ve been thinking about nautical design in a non beachy way. Something more masculine and industrial in a color scheme you typically don’t see. You don’t see navys or red hues or aqua and tan instead gunmetal, charcoal gray, black and white is the palette. I wanted to mix metals & steel with chrome elements to give that warehouse vibe but also bring in sealife decor for the sofa (love the octapus and crab pillows) and bookcase. The caged light pendants and tripod spotlight is very urban. I also wanted some natural wood and rope textures to tie in the nautical look. This would be a nice design for a loft overlooking a shoreline somewhere. What do you think?

{pillows, caged light pendant, bar cart, anchor, metal lamp, rope handled tray}

Monday Morning Inspiration 6.9.14

I have been beating myself up because I haven’t been as productive as I should. Nice weather kind of trumps getting anything done but this week I am not going to allow myself time for leisure until I cross off some main things from my task list. One thing that has slacked is my blogging. I will get it back together one of these days. I still have to share the sweet sixteen party I styled a few weeks ago. Anyhoo, cheers to a productive week!

Tuesday’s Tips: from bar cart to bathroom cart

image
If you are one of those people with a ton of products you use daily, you may want them in arms reach. Cluttering a surface without a tray is such an eyesore and maybe you have little ones that may accidently drop products styled on the toilet. A repurposed bar cart will comes in handy…

Monday Morning Inspiration 3.31.14

image

You know how that voice in your head sometimes makes you feel inadequate? It may tell you you’re not good enough, smart enough, cannot and will not get that done. “That” thing you want to get done may be a short term, long term or life changing goal or accomplishment. Sometimes it’s not the people around you that makes us feel insecure. It may very well be ourselves.

image

We can be our biggest hater (I hate that overused word), our biggest blocker. Often times we believe our own hype. All hype aint good hype though. Don’t allow yourself to feel as if you will lose before you even get started. We have nothing but time and all we can do is try. You’d rather try than be old and wrinkly rocking away in someone’s chair mad at the things you didn’t do or attempt, right? So do them. Set those goals. Do something daily to achieve them.
