Quick Decorating Tip When Displaying Family Photos

May 8, 2018

One idea I always give my clients regarding family photos, is instead of placing a family photo or two around in different areas of your home, it is a great idea to bring every family photo together and lay out in one spot:

One big family gallery wall:

When the photos are all together in a group, people tend to stop and look at the them:

No one seems to stop and look when there is only one or a two photos.  Maybe because it seems you are being nosy looking at their private memories? I think a grouping of photos make people want to stop and look because it is more of a display:

Like beautiful artwork! Just add favorite memories along the way.

Remember this tip when you are looking to display your family in the best possible way!

Setting the Table for Easter

March 24, 2018

Do you experiment/play with your table setting before the company arrives? I love to put different place settings together until I find one I love. Here are a few I played with this week getting ready for guests coming for Easter dinner:

Because I like to use my colorful placemats and napkins, I usually end up using my plain white dinnerware:

Then I just play around with different napkins until I get the look I love:Read More

Winter Centerpieces

January 14, 2018

With all of the Christmas decorations put away in my home, (well almost all), everything looks so bare and empty. So I have been trying to think of ideas to use for a centerpiece on my bare tables. When I google ‘winter centerpieces’ all I have found are Christmas decorations or extreme wedding table centerpieces. I even looked at the florist department at the market today- no flowers, no anything!

I thought I had one good idea- forcing Spring branches indoors. But after googling that subject, I found it is still too early for that here in the Northeast.  A few of the early bloomers I love is Forsythia, Magnolia, Flowering quince, Pussy willows, Flowering dogwood, Lilacs and of course Cherry blossom branches!

There are no buds on our trees yet and normally will not be until late February- early March. I am definitely going to be on top of this project and will let you know all about it in a month or so!

One idea I have been seeing a lot of is cotton stems used in containers:

I really like the look! They are referred to as a farmhouse accessory, but who says I can’t use in my home too? 🙂Read More

Book Shelf Styling

September 4, 2016

Happy Labor Day!

My living room book shelves have been decorated the same way now for about two years:

I liked the way it looked, so I did not pay much attention to it. (Actually, it seemed to be too much of a project so I ignored them!) haha (Sound familiar?)

Well, this weekend I decided to restyle my bookshelves and this is how they came out:Read More
