2022 Accents and Accessories

Spring season 2022 accents and accessories are creating quite the buzz.

March arrives and just like that busy bees and designing decoristas thoughts turn to seasonal updating their abode with touches of the corresponding season.


Count me in as one of the new season, new look loyal ready to let the sunshine in and the spring color, texture, and pattern seasonal updating begin.

Spring season 2022 accents and accessories

Today’s post is a first of the season show and tell tailor-made to excite those of us ready to refresh, renew and pretty up around the house for a new season.


Late winter camellias floating in a vintage tureen serves up a preview of garden party blooms soon to come.


Mother Nature has been giving us a preview of warm afternoons to come, and the talk among local meteorologists is we are now in a pattern of after 6:00 p.m.  sunsets.

Things are looking positively sunny, friends!


Speaking of positive outlooks…

My mother took a tumble last week which resulted in her breaking her hip.  She will be convalescing at Places In The Home, and we’ve got all kinds of fun activities planned to make the best out of a less than wonderful situation.

Discovering new playlists, popcorn and movie viewing classic favorites compliments of TCM 31 Days of Oscars, new recipe development and taste testing (the best part of the process), and perusing retail and vintage sites for what’s new spring 2022 finds.


I spy with my decorating eye a preview of spring 2022 décor finds that have my decorating interest piqued, present colors that typify the season, and prove to be show and tell worthy.

As the fictional character Bob Ryan asks, “is that something you might be interested in?”

If so, you’ve come to the right places in the home.

Not feeling the bold and bright of traditional lemon?



Opting for softer shades, hues, and tones remain close to the color family and allow for broader decorating interpretation.


When you realize the spaces and places in our home have a unique personality you discover the design style to highlight.



Accentuating a fresh and bright personality is easily accomplished by adding fun, chic, classic, and new-traditional lemon influenced home décor accents and accessories to the decorative scheme.

Small touches make big visual impressions.

Cake stands, porcelain bowls, silver compotes, a simple dinner plate all perfect for displaying a “bouquet”  of fresh lemons.

Decorative Storage Solutions

Getting your house in order and neatly organized is a necessary all things house that make a home activity.

Real life calls this week (the nerve), so in order to not leave you all without a post this week today’s post is a refreshed read for the new year.



We accumulate scads of stuff in a 365 day period, and organizing it all can be quite the task.

The upside to this sometimes dreaded, always necessary task is decorative storage solutions.

Putting the spaces and the places in your home on a diet will help to get the job done. 



Declutter by definition is removing unnecessary items from an untidy or overcrowded place.

Decluttering is a physical and mental activity.

You stretch, you reach, you bend, you lift, you give thought to.

When you live in a clutter free (or greatly reduced) environment, you can find things easier.  You can get from point A to point B without having to negotiate an obstacle course of stuff.

Decluttering restores order, reduces stress and anxiety, and gives instant visual results.

If you haven’t used or admired it or over the last year, the time is now to part ways with it

If you haven’t used, admired, or simply lost that loving feeling for a particular item, the time is now to part ways with it.

Of course, exceptions to this suggestion exist.

Family heirlooms, inherited collections, and items steeped in sentimental value, but not your present day décor choices, may better fit your décor tucked away in a keepsake storage box-container.


Editing allows you to clear the canvas so you can see the space in a new light.

Taking away from often adds to the flow of a space and promotes a comprehensive appearance.

Transferring from Within

Transferring furnishings and décor accessories from one room to another puts a new spin on things.

Groupings with the emphasis placed on cohesiveness will balance the scale of the room.

Absolutely play with the look.

Give thought to placement; mixing and mingling about the space furnishings and accents at first glance may not seem to play beautifully together.  Some of the best looks I’ve ever put together began just this way.

If the look doesn’t work your keen eye will know it.

As smart and savvy ideas for decorative storage solutions go, baskets, boxes, compartmentalized organizers, racks, and dividers continue to lead the way in stylish options for honing our home storage and organizational skills.

Tracking in the outdoors wreaks havoc on our floors, rugs, and carpets. Stopping tracked in stuff in its tracks may not be completely doable, but what you can do is mitigate the problem by having decorative storage solutions utilized in entryways and mudrooms to house, store, and organize at the ready.

There’s a place for everything, and built in cubbies allow organized storage housing for shoes, backpacks, pet leashes and the like.

Back in our flipping days, Dave the Builder thought I had lost my mind when I campaigned for converting small, basic utilitarian spaces such as side porches, nondescript alcoves, or even a bedroom into a large closet.


Most of the houses built in the 30s-40s-50s did not offer adequate closet space, especially by modern day standards.

Storage space is a hot commodity, as witnessed by the in demand designer closet suites of today.

Antiques once again make the list.

Timeless in presence and provenance, antique pieces lend a quality to most design styles as a lone focal point accent or anchor style of the space.

Antique pieces play the room beautifully as well as complementing other design styles.

Provenance tells the story of premier craftmanship and sustainability while finishes and details create visual interest.

Well, what do you think about these trend report 2022 projections?

A mad dash to home decor sources of choice is not exactly my new year, new style first priority, opting instead to first take an inventory of the accents and accessories presently in stock at Places In The Home and editing from within.

Believe me when I tell you how visually appealing and decoratively surprising the result is with one or more edits and placement adjustments.

Affordable, sustainable, and a fantastic way to spend a winter afternoon indoors.

Homey Seasonal Decor Finds

Homey seasonal decor finds in rich hues and flavorful tastes frame this picture perfect season.


Excitement surrounding the first day of fall compares to Christmas day in my book.

I’m selecting songs for a fall into autumn playlist, and the big blue gumbo pot is ready for the c’est si bon celebration of the season and its cornucopia of seasonings.


Y’all know my affinity for taking a photo and replicating it with in the style finds.

Well let me just say how taken I am with this bountifully beautiful display created by event designer Keith Robinson as featured in Flower Magazine.

Wood Cake Stand - Hearth & Hand

I can’t locate a recipe for pecan pie from Mr. Robinson, but I use the  Homemade Pecan Pie recipe from Karo Syrup, so classic it is.

Homemade Pecan Pie


1 cup Karo® Light OR Dark Corn Syrup

3 eggs

1 cup sugar

2 tablespoons butter melted

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1-½ cups (6 ounces) pecans

1 (9-inch) unbaked OR frozen deep-dish pie crust


Preheat oven to 350°F.

Mix corn syrup, eggs, sugar, butter and vanilla using a spoon.  Stir in pecans.  Pour filling into pie crust.

Bake on center rack of oven for 60 to 70 minutes (see tips for doneness, below).  Cool for 2 hours on wire rack before serving.

Place cookie sheet in oven and preheat oven as directed. Pour filling into frozen crust and bake on preheated cookie sheet.

High Altitude Adjustments: Reduce sugar to 2/3 cup and increase butter to 3 tablespoons.  Reduce oven temperature to 325°F.

Apple nut cake is set for the cake stand come Wednesday, but first, whipped maple pie.


Maple is among the taste of fall favorites, and is the featured flavor in this super easy to make dessert.


Whipped Maple Pie


1 deep dish pie crust

1 pkg. (3.4 oz.) vanilla instant pudding

1½ cup cold milk

½ cup pure maple syrup

1 tsp. maple flavoring

1  container (8 oz.) thawed whipped topping

nutmeg for dusting


Preheat oven to 375°F.  Remove frozen pie crust from package and allow to thaw for 20  minutes.

Using a fork, prick the bottom and sides of the pie crust with to help reduce shrinkage and bubbling.  To ensure the crust bakes off properly, place an empty pie pan the same size inside the crust.

Place pie crust on baking sheet and bake on lower oven rack for 12-15 minutes, allowing to cool once removed from oven.

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together instant pudding and milk until firm.  Add maple syrup and maple flavoring; mix well.  Fold in whipped topping; mix until incorporated.


Spoon mixture into cooled pie crust. Dust top of pie with nutmeg and top with nuts.

Refrigerate 1 hour.

Drizzle maple syrup over pie just before serving.

Next, add a generous tablespoon of the maple pudding mixture.

Repeat with another layer of crushed cookies and complete the dish with a final addition of the maple pudding mixture.

Top with a dollop of whipped topping, a drizzle of pure maple syrup, and walnuts or fresh Louisiana pecans.

The delicious proof is in the pudding.

Preheat oven to 375F. Quarter, core, and peel the apples. Cut enough to make 3 cups into 1/8-inch lengthwise slices and toss them in a bowl with the lemon juice and sugar.  Reserve them for the top of the tart.

Cut the rest of the apples into rough slices.  You should have about 8 cups. Place in a pan and cook over low heat for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender.

Beat in apricot jam, Calvados, sugar, butter, and cinnamon.  Raise heat and boil, stirring, until applesauce is thick enough to hold in a mass in the spoon.

Spread the applesauce in the pastry shell.  Cover with a neat, closely overlapping layer of sliced apples arranged in concentric circles.

Bake in upper third of preheated oven for about 30 minutes, or until the apples have browned lightly and are tender.  Slide the tart onto a serving dish and paint over it with a light coating of apricot glaze. Serve warm or cold with whipping cream or a scoop of ice cream.

Apricot Glaze

½ cup apricot preserves, forced through a sieve

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

Stir the strained apricot preserves and sugar over moderately high heat until thick enough to coat the spoon with a light film, and the last drops are sticky as they fall from the spoon (225-228 degrees on a candy thermometer).  Do not boil past this point or the glaze will become brittle as it cools.

Apply the glaze while it is still warm. Unused glaze will keep indefinitely in a screw-top jar.

There’s nothing like a toasty warm fire in a safe and ready for the season fireplace to conquer and complement a crisp fall chill.

With that also comes the seasonal decorating project of making life easier.

Implementing decorative ways to house firewood, fire starters, fatwood, pine cones, newspapers, and safety matches at the ready is a sure fire way of marrying seasonal style with seasonal convenience.

September through March is prime snuggle weather.


Settling in and warming up in front of a crackling fire sparks a fireside chat of comfort and joy.

Hit the play button to hear the sounds of crackling things to come.

The Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young classic “Our House” frames a lovely fall scene and heard.

I’ll light the fire
You put the flowers in the vase that you bought today
Staring at the fire for hours and hours while I listen to you
Play your love songs all night long for me, only for me
Come to me now and rest your head for just five minutes,
everything is good
Such a cozy room, the windows are illuminated by the
Sunshine through them, fiery gems for you, only for you
Our house is a very, very, very fine house with two cats in the yard
Life used to be so hard
Now everything is easy ’cause of you
And our la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

Digging The Pig Kitchen Decor

I’m really digging the pig kitchen decor of late.  As time is on my side in today’s world of thinking twice about venturing out if it’s not necessarily a necessity, it leaves me unhurried time to explore new things out there in internet land.

Last week I shared with the Places In The Home Facebook page followers a new page I’ve started to follow, Cooking with Brenda Gantt.

Miss Brenda cooks up Southern favorites with her own unique flavor of the South.

Homemade buttermilk biscuits.

Chicken and dumplings.

Boston butts.

Marinated vegetable salad.

Hot water cornbread.

Orange pineapple ice cream.

Candied sweet potatoes.

sliced-sweet-potatoes-in-sugar-and-butter (1)

To quote Brenda, “It’s gonna be good y’all!”

candied-sweet-potatoes (1)

And it was!

Brenda shops the local farmers market, Wingard’s Produce, and a Southern staple of grocery store traditions, Piggly Wiggly aka The Pig for fresh fruits, vegetables and meats.

The Pig Logo

I get the biggest kick out watching Brenda’s farm to table videos complete with antique and vintage wares, no nonsense tips and tidbits, and a cooking show and tell of people seen and items purchased on her trips to The Pig.

Dave the Builder asked me what I sourced today.

Suffice it to say I’ve pigged out, decoratively speaking, on pig kitchen home decor for the better part of two weeks now.

Pig kitchen decor comes in variety of styles ranging from I ♥ country French to vintage whimsy to farmhouse chic.

Avoiding decor items that tend to be too trendy by opting for those that have staying power such as classic form, good bones, and clean lines promotes a stylish result and keeps the what in the world was I thinking when I bought this regret at bay.

Love your style!
