Gifts for the home are always a welcome sight for the decor lovers on your list. Today, I’ve hand-picked some fabulous items that I’ve been swooning over this fall. As you will see, I’m gravitating to home furnishings and accessories in neutrals (great for layering), with a touch of brass (still so hot!), and clean lines (always timeless). From a stunning chair by Kelly Wearstler (splurge) to a festive stoneware pitcher by Oh Joy! for Target (super affordable), there’s a variety of gift ideas ranging in price. I’m hoping Santa brings me one of two of these lovely items for my home!

White and Gold Holiday Table Setting for Target

Hello December! It’s time to deck the halls, trim the tree and prep for holiday dinners. With the Christmas season in full swing, I was thrilled to work in partnership with Target on planning my tablescape this year. The festive white and gold color scheme sprang from the gorgeous table runner by Oh Joy! for Target and the fun candlesticks from Threshold. I paired the runner with elegant gold and silver swirl dinnerware and faux bamboo flatware. In contrast to the metallics, I added pops of color and earthy touches with succulents, air plants and driftwood. The mini hanging glass terrariums with sand and air plants topped each place setting and are the perfect gift for each dinner guest. I love the result!

From beautiful candlesticks to chic table runners, timeless flatware to festive dinnerware, Target has every little thing (at super affordable prices) you’ll need this holiday season to entertain family and friends!

happy holidays!

Pink Holiday Decor

Christmas decorating with pink

This festive living room featured on Poppytalk had me thinking of how much I love the color pink during the Christmas season. Simply a pale hue of red, pinks are fabulous paired with blues, greens and golds as a palette for any of the upcoming holidays. Certainly not traditional, pink holiday decor can be playful, elegant and sophisticated. Take a look at a few inspiring pink holiday decor perfect for your Thanksgiving tablescape, Christmas vignettes and News Year’s Eve dinner party.

Organized Closet on a Budget

black and white closet using Ikea // walk-in closet

An organized space is like a breath of fresh air. It calms us. For most, wardrobe closets can be some of the most unorganized spaces in their home. Therefore I always recommend closet systems to help keep reach in and walk-in closets organized.  These systems can be pricey, so when I stumbled across this gorgeous black and white organized closet – done on a serious budget – I had to share it with you.  Nina Holst of Stylizimo created a beautiful walk-in-closet using items mostly from Ikea. The DIY shoe rack created with a series of Ikea’s BYGEL towel rods and spray painted gold is brilliant!
