Neutral Fall Mantel

I'm a little late to the fall mantel party, but I wanted to do one nonetheless;  we spent a huge amount of time in our family room when we're home and with the leaves just starting to turn outside my windows I wanted the mantel to reflect the change of season too.    This year I wanted it to be neutral with lots of texture and I think I'm there... Sorry if the photos are a little dark;  we had massive storms that blew through yesterday … [Read more...]

Fresh Looks for Fall Coming from Willow House

Ok, again, a shameless plug for my home-based business, formerly Southern Living at HOME, but I was taught to share and to keep this to myself would be selfish. :DMy new Willow House catalogs arrived a few days ago and I am thrilled to say they are AWESOME.  Lots of old favorites but some fresh new looks, too-- a great mix of the two, I think.  Couple of things I'm happy about:  lower price points on many of our old favorites, … [Read more...]

Hard Working Decor

Organization challenges me daily and no where am I more challenged than in my home office.  After all, it's the hub of my home, where I write, and where I run my SLAH business.  But after many stops and starts, I've realized that sterile organizational systems are not for me.   What works for my creative and over-active mind is organization with style.  Fortunately, my SLAH business has afforded me many beautiful … [Read more...]

Tip of the Week: Show your true colors!

Memorial Day weekend is just around the corner, so let your decor show your patriotism.  Deck out the whole house?  No way.  A few simple touches and your holiday decorating will be a class act.  Swap out your spring pillar candles with red ones.  Simple raffia strands tied in a bow around a solid color pillar add an extra touch.  Nestle them in sand, river pebbles, or let them stand on their own.  Break out … [Read more...]

Tip of the Week: Light Your Way

Tip of the Week: Go Fresh!

Nothing seems to perk up a home like fresh flowers, but I've found they're often too expensive to enjoy on a regular basis.  Except for springtime! You can find wonderful bouquets and bunches of fresh flowers at WalMart or your local grocery store right now-- and they won't break the bank either.  Today I discovered bunches of fresh tulips at WalMart for $5 a piece.  Fifteen dollars later, they are brightening up my kitchen island, … [Read more...]
