Fall Home Decorating

Fall decorating has been in full swing the last few weeks and it's finally all coming together. I already had a couple pieces of outdoor Halloween decor but nothing for Fall/Thanksgiving since we usually spend Thanksgiving with K's family. This year is going to be a little different.

Wedding Photo Gallery Wall

In our previous home, I designed a much larger scale black and white photo gallery wall in our living room hallway which included more than just wedding photos.

Master Bedroom Design & Decorating

My latest project is to redecorate our master bedroom. The walls are stark white and we have the most basic furniture and bedding set. I want some "pop" in the room and the walls painted gray, which has been the plan since we bought our house 3 years ago. Gray is such a cozy and warm color for a bedroom.

I found a bedding set with the most beautiful colors & a peacock theme. I love emerald green, sapphire blue, and of course gray.

 I'm definitely no interior decorator but I think a gray shag rug, silver mirror/wall decor and sparkly throw pillow will pull it all together to give me the sparkle I love without making it too girly for the husband.

Home Decorating: Photo Gallery Wall

Since our wedding in 2012, I've had so many lovely frames and photos that were packed in storage and never put up on display.

When the lovely Jordan posted about a Gallery Wall, a light went off in my head. I decided to try my hand at making one a few weekends ago to display in our downstairs hallway.

I laid everything out ahead of time to decide on a layout before hammering holes in the wall. K was a good sport and helped with the hammering and measuring.

In the process of hanging up all the frames, we realized the space we were working with was slightly smaller so decided to do a black & white theme only and leave out the long rectangular frame on the right.

Since the frames were all different sizes, I had to order a couple different size photos and wait for them to arrive before completing the project last weekend.

The Details:

Most of the photos are from our wedding day, including this one of our First Dance.

I love how it came out even though it didn't turn out 100% as planned. I do prefer the black & white theme instead of having a mixture of colors

A Relaxing & Productive Weekend at Home

After traveling and keeping busy for the past few weekends, this was the weekend to keep my butt at home and be easy on the wallet. I have a friend's destination wedding coming up & her bachelorette in New Orleans that I need to start saving for.

On Friday, I came home to this pretty flower from K...

We then went out for dinner & drinks at Carrabbas to use a gift card from Christmas.

On Saturday, I tried my hand at making a Gallery Wall. It didn't come out exactly as planned but still good enough considering the space I was working with.

And then found myself in the liquor store where I stumbled upon the best deal EVER...2 bottles of Cinnamon Roll vodka for $12 plus a $12 mail-in rebate. Got get yours now! (Cocktail recipes to follow this week on the blog).

Sunday was a wine and blogging kind of day.

I love my pretty redneck wine glass that I bought in Savannah as a souvenir.

It was the perfect weekend. Hope you had a great weekend too :-)

Beach Bathroom Redecorating

My latest home project is redecorating our guest bathroom with a beach theme. I love starfish, shells and all the colors associated with the coast or beach.

I put together a collage on Polyvore for some inspiration:

I'm very far from being an interior designer but a girl can try. Here's my progress so far:

It's a work in progress.
