Newsflash: gone are the days of basic and boring dorm room decorating ideas and décor choices.
These dorm room decorating ideas feature tasteful and dashing furnishings, accents and accessories that come together to transform an otherwise nondescript space into a chic oasis of comfort and personal style.
In keeping with the rustic and natural theme associated with Thanksgiving, farmhouse, and a woodland Christmas, artisan wood bark natural decorative bowls become an eye catching addition to your holiday kitchen accessories portfolio.
Copper is a delightful color complement to the shades of the fall and Thanksgiving color palette, however, I’m thinking the KitchenAid Artisan Empire stand mixer in holiday happening red is the way to mix things up.
Cooking, baking, and delicious treat making goes with the seasonal territory, and remember, Santa does love his cookies.
Designer Anthony Gianacakos transforms an otherwise rinse and repeat rental kitchen into a style spot with painter’s tape, chalk paint, and style inspiration compliments of the color, the tile, and the graffiti traits of Lisbon, Portugal.
Be it cart, accent cabinet, table or countertop, decorative home bar accessories that catch the eye, start a conversation, and bring a hint of whimsy stock the well-appointed home bar hospitality station with distinctive style and personality.
Crown home decor accents as in crown themed is having quite a crowning moment currently. Streaming series, triple crown races, once in a lifetime coronation events- see what I mean.
While working on content for an upcoming post, I found it necessary to head over to the bookmark manager. Information overload is the driver of my “where did I see that” moments.
Enter the bookmark manager.
While scanning the manager, I style spotted the article “Inside Tara Shaw’s Breathtaking and Very Europea New Orleans Home” from One Kings Lane.
Immediately I remembered the wooden crown sculpture and bed crown home decor pieces prominently featured in several of the images in the article.
Bookmarked under inspiration, the New Orleans home of Interior Designer and Antiques dealer Tara Shaw is an interior design and decorating love letter to the signature interiors befitting the European influence witnessed throughout the Crescent City.
Serene colors create a nuanced backdrop, one in which contemporary furnishings, unique antique pieces, and crown home decor strike a balance between elegant and livable.

Pheasant Plumage – John Derian
An invitation to gather together with friends to eat, drink, celebrate, and be grateful for one another on the third Thursday of November is but a custom design and email list away.
Gourd Times – Crate & Barrel
Holiday time is open house time, y’all!
A customized invitation to join you to celebrate not only fits the occasion, but reflects your personal style.
It dawned on me last week as I was dusting (the all things house that make a home chore I love to hate) the bookshelves in the not ready for blog sharing time den could greatly benefit from an update-an edit-a rearrange.
That started a I’m tired of-I’m bored with-I don’t like that chain reaction.
An inspection of shelf, space and tabletop ensued, and the conclusion reached is I’m ready for a rearranging home decor accessories change.
Did you hear that?
That’s Dave the Builder breathing a sigh of relief as I assure him no painting, wallpapering or furniture moving will be involved in this most current update to our decor.
Oh, it’s coming, but more on that down the redecorating road.
It’s amazing how easy it is to stave off decor staleness by simply rearranging home decor accessories upon the shelves and tabletops of home sweet home.
I’m decorating to the oldies with the soulful sounds of Dionne Warwick and The 5th Dimension.
The music is from 1967, but the look in this traditional ranch doesn’t have to be.
I’m doing my decorista best to de-1967 this traditional ranch one project, one space, one rearranging home decor accessories at a time.
Stained woodwork works for some spaces, but this den is not one of those spaces.
Dave the Builder suggested I give the stained woodwork a chance.
I did and have for eight years.
That’s a lot of mulling it over.
This future project is on the fast track to the back burner due to prior “real job” commitments.
Dave’s schedule is full through October, and although painting the den bookshelves tops my at home project list, Dave’s projects pay the bills.
Good and stylish things come to those who wait.
Isn’t that how the saying goes?
New cabinet hardware is a must, and let me tell you why.
Changing out cabinet hardware is an inexpensive update, an install I am ridiculously brilliant at, and delivers instant visual gratification.
Move it here, move it there.
Take a look at the look created.
Assign each shelf a focal point accessory and work from there.
To the left, to the right, to the center-no two shelves or vignettes are created equal.
Style each shelf with objects of varying sizes and heights to create flow, balance, and to perfect the art of visual interest.
Feature items close to your heart, interests, and memories.
The rule of you effectively applies to decorating and should be beautifully evident throughout your home.
