Today I want to share a new addition to the dining room, and that’s my new bar cart! I’ve been wanting one for years and I’m excited to finally have one. And of course, I love the styling part the best, haha! Bar cart styling can be done in many ways, but I have a bit of a formula for those of you who might be getting one, or who have one and never quite know how to get it right.
Hello friends! Today I thought I’d take a break from the all-fall, all-the-time I’ve been bringing you these past couple of weeks and share an update we recently did here in the house. We recently redid our window coverings in the downstairs and got new woven wood shades and I couldn’t be more thrilled!
Well, it’s really fall now – at least in most places! Our weather here has unfortunately resumed it’s summer personality, but I’m hoping for some relief soon. In the meantime, I’m decorating, baking pumpkin bread, and burning my favorite Chai Latté candle. In other words, enjoying all-things-fall!
Fall is definitely my favorite time of year. I look forward to decorating for fall almost as much as I do Christmas! And nothing makes me happier than incorporating things from nature to usher in the season. I naturally gravitate to a more neutral fall palette. As you know, I’m not the biggest fan of the bright oranges and rusts, haha! I like to do a more muted and pared down version of fall. And one of the easiest ways to do that is to incorporate items from nature as part of your seasonal decorating. With fall decorating, a little goes a long way. You don’t need 85 pumpkins on the porch with bales of hay! I sometimes think Pinterest has made us all think we need to go all-out with our seasonal decorating, but I disagree. Just a touch of the season brought in through nature says fall in a subtle way, and reminds us to slow down and enjoy the season we’re in!
One question I get a lot here and even more so on Instagram, is what paint colors I have in my home. Whenever I post different rooms, I invariably get asked about the different colors I’ve used. So when the ladies from Project Design asked me if I’d like to share in a post with them about my favorite paint colors, I thought this would be a great chance for me to share what I’ve used and love (and don’t love!) in my home!
So today, I thought we’d take a little break from fall decorating. And why is that you ask? Because I’m excited to share with you a surprising new source for French country decor!
Have you guys checked out Walmart lately? Ever since I did the sweet tablescape a few weeks ago featuring items from their new Vintage Chic home line, I’ve been obsessed! While perusing the site and taking a look at all the cute new items they carry, I found so many gorgeous French country finds at Walmart that I wanted to take a moment to share them with you!
