Snazzy Knobs

Anthropologie always has a wide variety of hardware amd these {new} knobs and have extra zip to them. Think nautical and punchy.

I'm really feeling the beachy, bohemian style of Ferran Textiles - it's fresh and full of personality. Always a plus to find another great textile company!

The Lumbar Look

I've been diggin' the lumbar pillow look for a while...not just for bedding, but for all spaces. It seems to balance furniture out nicely and creates such a great accent to bedding. I also love the over sized look too - can't go wrong with a little lumbar pillow in the mix.

Front Door Dilemma

We took down our holiday decor, which leaves my front door looking bare and needing some love. My husband even mentioned that we need to do something...

So there is always the good old standby wreath...but some seem too springy {although they are pretty} and to soon to put up, so let's take a look at a few and brainstorm about other ideas too.

What do you do to your front door this time of year?

What about personalizing your door - attaching a  pretty ribbon to an over sized letter {of your last name} and hanging it?

Or a letter hanging in the middle of a green wreath like this....

found here

Like this, but less festive?

Or what about hanging a small decorative mirror?

You could always dress it up with hardware - door knocker, doorbell ringer, address numbers - a very sophisticated look

 Love this here

A handsome welcome! here

Tons of options -- hopefully I will come up with something soon. I'll keep you posted!!

Brass Creatures

I love a good brass creature. One here or there amongst accessories, only in small doses. It softens a space and brings a smile to my face {as I automatically name the creature, "that lion looks like a Larry"...}

Great options on Etsy.
