GREEN, GREEN, GREEN!!!

This past week felt like a big whirlwind! My husband had job interviews in South Carolina, Nevada, and Arizona. So with good reason, I feel I have neglected my blog! We are jumping on a plane tonight to finally go home. Our daughter has been a champ through it all - she is now a seasoned flyer in her 8.5 months of life!

I had never been to the South, and absolutely fell in love with how green it is there! My husband and I kept saying to each other, "I can't believe how many TREES there are here!" I hardly got any pictures ( I don't know where my mind was) but as we were driving around with a realtor I noticed a tree periodically that had huge white blossoms on it that I had never seen before. After inquiring to the realtor if she knew what type of tree it was, I learned that it was the magnolia tree.

This isn't a picture I took (remember, I don't know where my mind was!) just a pretty photo of magnolia blossoms found here.

Anyway, so in honor of all the GREEN I fell in love with, here are some GREEN home items that I also love:
These are napkins! source

How to Accessorize an End Table or Nightstand

Stuck on how to accessorize an end table or nightstand? 
There are so many ways to style/accessorize a table, and really there are no rules. However, if you aren't sure where to begin below is a list of basic items to use that you can't go wrong with:
*A lamp * Artwork/mirror *Books * Floral/branches



In addition, here are a few more accessorizing tips to get you on your way:
Use items of varied heights to keep the eye moving.  Have something short, something medium, and something tall.  Use stacked books to add height if needed.

Layer your accessories.  Don't be afraid to let your lamp cover a portion of the artwork.

Group differently shaped items together.  If everything is square/rectangle it just looks boring.
via
Add pops of color.
Elle Decor
Use unique items that mean something to you, such as something purchased from a trip.  These are great conversation starters, and will add a lot of character to your arrangement.

Which color are you immediately drawn to?

Since I found this via Pinterest many of you may have already seen it. But for those of you who have not,  it's  Paper Source's Colorscope Chart.  I was drawn to the blues - mostly pool or lake.  There are definitely some qualities in each that would describe me.

What about you?  Is it right on, or completely off??

Project Reveal: Church Foyer Makeover

I apologize for being a little MIA on this blog lately!  Life has been busy lately working with local clients, my family visiting, & working on our newly purchased home.

Recently, I completed a project that I would like to share.  A local church hired me to help them redecorate their foyer area.  They wanted something new, fresh & modern that would go along with the existing paint, flooring, and lighting.

Here are the BEFORE photos:


This is what it looks like now!

A special thanks to Palmetto Street Church of God for allowing me the privilege to help make their foyer shine!
