Side Tables

I'm in serious need of some side tables since we've added about 1,000 square feet to our living arrangement from our recent move. 

Since I'm helping someone update their home, I couldn't help but to drool over these side tables I put together in a vision board for her - 

I might have to tell Santa about these...

Side Tables

I feel like two or three of these would fit under the tree just fine ;)

p.s. I'm being brave and extending my one-on-one decorating to online services. Wish me luck!

Hanging a wreath with ribbon

Although I have a strict no-Christmas-til-after-Thanksgiving rule, this wreath is a perfect nod to the winter Holidays without being too Christmassy, so I couldn't wait to put it up as soon as November hit. 

I thought I was being extra clever and planny-aheady when I bought a gold metal wreath hanger but when I tried to use it, my door wouldn't shut. Which is... kind of a problem. 

Bummer, because I liked the look of the gold - so I improvised by using gold ribbon instead.

To keep the wreath in place, I taped the ribbon on the inside/top of the door where no one can see and let the ends hang on the inside of the door as an added bonus of decoration. I debated on tying a bow above the wreath - maybe next year when I'm not so lazy pregnant.

Have you busted out any Holiday decor yet? I can't wait to get the tree for our first Christmas in the new house!

Styling Built-Ins

We moved! It was continues to be exhausting, so when I get a free moment from chasing around Jack I've been styling things around the house.

It's a work in progress, but here's a little update on our den. I painted the wood panelling a dark blue (which looks like a blueberry color in the reflection - but trust me it's more of a navy. 

I hung the mirror and styled away from there. I want to mix metallics instead of being married to one shade - I love how they bring such brightness to our dark den. 

I bet I'll change things around 8 thousand times before I'm totally happy with it - but it's coming along! 

More updates soon!
