A Holiday Table

Hello people and happy Friday!

Christmas is fast approaching. Can you believe tomorrow is December? Ahhhhhh! Slow down. I need to get started on my gift shopping. We said we're not buying the kids toys this year. They have way too many that they already don't play with.

I wandered into Old Time Pottery recently to check out their new Christmas Store. They have aisles and aisles of holiday decor. It had been a minute since I was in and I must say I was pleasantly surprised. I wanted to put together a holiday table this year. It's always fun to play around and make the table look pretty. We may not use this room very often, but at least it can look nice right?

I stocked up on new plates and flatware. I don't think our flatware even matched at this point. They would get tossed in the trash by mistake or taken for lunch with leftovers at work and never made it back home. It was hard to find the exact same fork or spoon as the original set so it was all mis-matched. Not anymore!

I hadn't decided on a color theme for this year's tree so I went with gold, white, and silver for the table. A classic combo. I added some simple greenery down the center and placed candle votives in between the branches. I placed some gold ornaments on the greenery. I also picked up some white wire trees that I tucked in.

How cute it this striped ribbon? I cut pieces off and added them to the ornaments for a festive touch.

I love this simple but festive table. It doesn't have to cost a lot to look good.

Are you done Christmas shopping? Have you even started? Ha! Throw some kids ideas my way. My kids don't really get into the spirit until they see presents under the tree.

Have a great weekend.

Friday Five

Well people, we made it to Friday!

Are you ready for Father's Day? Anything big planned?

I wanted to share a few things that I thought were pretty that caught my eye this week.

1) I have been drooling over ChrisLovesJulia's bathroom renovation. They are nearing the completion and ever single detail is perfect. Their entire home is great so I could just move right in and not change a thing.


2) Target is launching a new line, Made by Design, next week.

3) Our HOA is tightening up on the rules around the 'hood so we have to find a way to tastefully cover our trashcan. I saw this tutorial to create a storage area on the side of the house. Seems pretty simple to execute.

4) You may be hosting an outdoor shindig for your family this weekend. Turn ordinary plastic bins into ones that look more industrial.

5) One of my favorite places to find decor inspo is Instagram. It is full of talented home owners and designers from all types of styles. If you aren't following me there, you should be.

Happy Weekend!

A New Entry Rug

Anybody ever get the urge to change something in your house? Like, all the time?

I can't be the only one.

I have been wanting to change the rug in the foyer. Don't get me wrong, I still like the one I have, but I want something lighter and brighter. Something that actually opens the space up. 

I was contacted by Natural Area Rugs to try a rug of my choice. You know I jumped at the chance. I have a jute rug in the breakfast area so I was intrigued to see what their options were. Jute can be very versatile and there is no color or pattern to be bound by. It's a very natural look and can work in any style of decor.

I ended up choosing the Calvin rug in 5x8. It is made of 100% natural jute and hand loomed. I could tell when I opened it, it is very high quality and the loops are detailed.

When I put it down, it instantly brightened up the area. The entry is already bright but this was ten times better. I never thought I would get something this large for here but it kind of works. It covers more of the wood floor.

The woven jute feels so good underfoot too. Kind of like a massage when you walk across. I chose the Calvin because of the subtle square-like pattern of the weave.

They also sent a rug pad which is key when having a rug on wood floors. It helps the rug not to slide and protects the floor from scratches and wear.

I would definitely recommend this rug for your home. We've been using it for a while and it still looks new.

Right now you can get 25% off your order with the code MD2018.

Go over and take a look at the options Natural Area Rugs has. You won't be disappointed! They also do custom orders.
