Welcome to my gallery of decorating ideas. I am a bit of a decorating addict. In my book a new season hasn’t started until I have made at least one seasonal decoration. I love to change up little creative displays on my mantel, my side tables or on my living room table.
You will always find flowers in my decorations, and often lots of beach / nautical details. My color scheme is usually pretty laid back, but once in a while I’ll go all out on the bold colors.
I hope you will love these decorations I did in my home and that they will inspire you to decorate your home too.
Enjoy these decorating ideas!

I did tell you that I love mantels, didn’t I . I think every house should have a mantel. It is such a great focal point of the room and nothing says more ‘home’ to me then a roaring fire on a winter’s day. But sadly my house does not have a mantel or … [Read more...]
