FRONT ENTRYWAY PLANS

Happy January, friends. I know we are heading into February soon, but it’s my first post of the year, so Happy New Year as well! The start of another year is always such a refreshing time, I find. I know like me, most of you get the itch to organize, declutter, and plan, and I have definitely been full on into planning mode, so today I am actually sharing a different type of post with you that I have never done before.

The front entryway of our home has been a bit of a pain in the butt for me since we moved in almost two years ago. There is a large window on the side near the front door, and then perpendicular to that is our stairway that leads to the upstairs level, and there is not a lot of room to work with in between. I have wanted a nice console table so I can use it to style the area, but I have been searching forever to find one that is a size that will work, paired with a style I like.

READING ROOM BOOKSHELVES

Hey, all. I hope that your September is going well so far. I am excited to be back with another little post for you so soon (for me) after my latest one!
As I mentioned in my autumn living room post last week, this is my favourite season for so many reasons. One being that I tend to feel more inspired and motivated to freshen things up, and even to make new creations. This includes home decor projects… and also baked goods, if I’m honest – who doesn’t love making a hundred pumpkin or apple-based desserts in the fall, am I right? Anyways, last week I felt a very abrupt motivation to completely overhaul my reading room bookshelves! They have remained pretty well the same over the last year and a half since we have moved in, save for the odd seasonal update of foliage here or there. Continue reading “READING ROOM BOOKSHELVES”

AUTUMN LIVING ROOM

Oh autumn, my absolute favourite season overall. I know this strays a bit from the norm, but I am someone who really doesn’t feel sad to see summer leave, and to welcome the beginnings of the season changing to fall. I’m not one for super hot weather – good thing I live in Canada – so after a couple of weeks of scorching temperatures and sun, I feel overjoyed when we finally get that cooler weather front rolling in, like we have had this week. I asked my husband the forecast yesterday, and without skipping a beat he said, “It’s about 12 degrees (53 F) and overcast, so perfect for you outside.” He knows me so well! Seriously, give me all the gloomy skies and crisp autumn air. It’s absolutely perfect for lighting candles all over the house, listening to soft music, and cozying up in my reading chair with a cup of tea and fuzzy socks. This is why autumn is also my favourite season to transition to for decor Continue reading “AUTUMN LIVING ROOM”
