Christmas Centerpiece Anyone Can Make

Need a quick and simple Christmas Centerpiece?  Here is what I have sitting on my dining table.

I don't claim to be a diva of Christmas decorating, so I usually keep my holiday decor pretty simple. What I love about this centerpiece is that it takes about 2 seconds to put together, is very inexpensive, and you can use what you already have in your house or out in the yard.

If you don't have easy access to holly branches, don't sweat it.  You could use another type of branch or just skip the branches all together. I think it looks great just as it is - clean &  simple:)  You can also paint the tips of the pine cones gold if you have the time. It just adds a little bit of glamour:)

  3. These pine cones has finally found its way in creative hands. You haven't run out of inspirational ideas. Love your blog.

  4. If you don't have holly you can always try local retail stores that sell live Christmas trees. They trim lower branches on site & are usually willing to let you help haul away the refuge. A few short trimmings would add both color a fresh evergreen fragrance. Dip ends in a little Elmer's & Epsom salt for an icy take.

How to Accessorize an End Table or Nightstand

Stuck on how to accessorize an end table or nightstand? 
There are so many ways to style/accessorize a table, and really there are no rules. However, if you aren't sure where to begin below is a list of basic items to use that you can't go wrong with:
*A lamp * Artwork/mirror *Books * Floral/branches

In addition, here are a few more accessorizing tips to get you on your way:
Use items of varied heights to keep the eye moving.  Have something short, something medium, and something tall.  Use stacked books to add height if needed.

Layer your accessories.  Don't be afraid to let your lamp cover a portion of the artwork.
Group differently shaped items together.  If everything is square/rectangle it just looks boring.
Add pops of color.

Use unique items that mean something to you, such as something purchased from a trip.  These are great conversation starters, and will add a lot of character to your arrangement.

Which color are you immediately drawn to?

Since I found this via Pinterest many of you may have already seen it. But for those of you who have not,  it's  Paper Source's Colorscope Chart.  I was drawn to the blues - mostly pool or lake.  There are definitely some qualities in each that would describe me.

What about you?  Is it right on, or completely off??

Project Reveal: Church Foyer Makeover

I apologize for being a little MIA on this blog lately!  Life has been busy lately working with local clients, my family visiting, & working on our newly purchased home.

Recently, I completed a project that I would like to share.  A local church hired me to help them redecorate their foyer area.  They wanted something new, fresh & modern that would go along with the existing paint, flooring, and lighting.

Here are the BEFORE photos:

This is what it looks like now!
