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"
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?
Check out these fab rooms for inspiration !
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!
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!
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?
I don't know about you, but I'm a big fan of Ballard Designs. I use a lot of Ballard pieces in my designs for clients, so when I came across their website How to Decorate, chock full of holiday ideas, I was excited to incorporate a few into my own home!
How do you decorate? Silver and Gold? Green and White?
