Holiday Decor Favorites

It’s SNOWING in Kansas City & we decided there is no better day to start putting up some Christmas decorations!! The girls were all at school today so we decided to go have lunch at the Plaza & did a little shopping so I could grab a few more holiday items! I fell in LOVE with these vases which inspired my entire mantle, I can’t wait to share it all with you, as long as the sun shines tomorrow & I can snap some pics!!

In the meantime, rounding up ALL of my favorite decor items of the season right here for you!!

one // two // three // four // five // six // seven // eight

One can never have too many bottle brush trees!!! A few more favorites that I am loving:

The cutest milk & cookies for Santa set.

The best copper twinkle lights, these create all the cozy in your house!!

These super cute mugs because there’s no such thing as having too many.

Found some similar pink mercury glass light up trees, like the ones I got at the end of last season, these are so fun for the mantle!

The best price I’ve ever seen on a wicker tree collar, we love ours!!

A most festive cookbook that is also too pretty not to display in the kitchen.

Alright, I have to know, are you a decorate right away kinda gal or wait until after Thanksgiving decorator?! We are hosting a small family Thanksgiving here this year and I think all the holiday flair will only add to the festive enjoyment!!! Cheers friends!! XO

Halloween Home Tour

Halloween is almost here, we are soaking up all of the most festive fun of the season & pulling together all of the things we need for costumes this week! It always takes me a while to get Halloween decorations just the way I want them, and even though we aren’t even completely settled in our house yet, spider webs & skeletons have found their way into almost every room!! We are hosting a Halloween party on Friday night so I wanted to make sure everything was extra spooky just in time!! Excited to share with you our first official Halloween home tour, enjoy!!

Cannot wait to see all of your Halloween decor & costumes! Hope you are all having the most FUN and FESTIVE week!!!! XO

Our Office Before & After

I am so excited to share our home office before & afters with you today, feels like such a Monday space to share, right?! Brandon works remote so he spends a ton of time in this room, he wanted a darker green paint color, I pulled a ton of options (including some light purples that he shut down pretty quickly!) but we settled on Coney Island by Behr. It is SO pretty and we are super happy with it!! Brandon built another desk, a little longer than the one we had in here previously, so that we could use our old one for the girls coloring table in our playroom/family room (sharing that room next)! We work in here together a lot so having a ton of work space is important, mostly so all of my piles of junk don’t get too close to his tidy side.

Here was the office when we moved in, super modern with built in office furniture, an exposed ceiling (which I did sort of like but it felt off for this style of home) and super funky lighting. It was also carpeted, which we pulled up and had hardwoods laid to match the rest of the house!

And here is the office now! Dark & moody, but also super fun & functional!!

This was a really fun space to design because it is very closed off from the rest of the house so I felt like I could go a different direction with dark paint & fun accessories. We still need to find a rug (and agreeing on a rug might be the hardest accessory to ever choose for our home!) but we are so happy with how everything turned out. Another room checked off the list!!

Hope you loved this little tour!! Hoping to share a full Fall home tour in the next few weeks as we wrap up just a few more projects! Happy Monday, friends!! XO
