New Year's Eve Inspiration


How To Style Your Nightstand /My Newly Styled Nightstand

While I'm off this week, it's been great to spend time with my daughters as well as get much-needed house organizational projects going! 

One of these is re-styling my nightstand. It was more "Summery" with brighter colors and framed prints. I wanted to make it a little more sexy and "Wintery" perhaps. 

When you are styling your nightstand, here are a few tips to make it easier for you:

1) Collect books you love
2) Add a decorative tray (large or small) you want to incorporate 
3) Add a candle & pretty matches
4) Incorporate a framed print
5) Select a lamp that provides ample lighting for reading 
6) Jewelry or anything that glimmers for added beauty
7) One decorative object

STYLING (The Fun Part!)

--I like to use a large tray to place my things in.  Stack books or just use one within the tray (if they fit). Put something pretty on top  
--Add a frame (it can be nailed to wall or just leaned against nightstand like I did here)
--Place your candle to the left or right of stacked books.  Place pretty matches next to it.
--I put a bottle of perfume just because the scent smells good when I get into bed and it's pretty to look at
--Use your small tray or plate to corral jewelry and keep together in a "collection"


Masterfully Organized Rooms

It's almost a brand, spanking new year folks!  I have big dreams and high hopes for 2015! You'll hear more about this soon! 

Who doesn't love a fresh start? 

I plan to edit my rooms this week while I'm still off work, re-organize my home, closet, and more.  

 Perhaps time to edit your own home? Where do you start?

Vary Book Placement.  Did you know there are 7 ways to stack books?  Karen from The Art of Doing Stuff teaches us how she styled hers in her IKEA Billy bookcases to break up the columns.  Notice how she doesn’t just stick to books, she adds art and natural objects too.  And don’t you love that reading chair?

Our Christmas

Every year, I get excited to deck out our house for the holidays, shop, and most importantly spend time with my family. 

We had a wonderful Christmas and are still celebrating by taking time off to be with family and enjoy our daughters while they are on winter break. 

I wanted to share a few photos of our holiday and hope that you had great holiday too!


Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays From JWS Interiors

I just wanted to wish you all a wonderful holiday! I'll be signing off the blog for a little bit while I get ready for Christmas and spend time with my family.  I will post some pics of our holiday here and there...

For now, I wanted to show the work of illustrator Wenna Prive, whom I asked to create my business Christmas cards, as seen here ! She is amazing, so be sure to look her up on Instagram @wennaprive!

Happy Holidays! 


A Clever (DIY) Garland

As I've mentioned before, I love Christmas-time and I love all the cards that start rolling in from Dec. through January of all of our friends and family .

 To that end, I'm always looking for creative ways to hang and display our cards. As I was researching for new ideas, I came across this gorgeous fresh garland on NineandSixteen  where they just used clothes pins to attach the cards! How clever!

How do you display your holiday cards?
