We have fallen in love with using pumpkins as decorations this season! One of our favorite new ways to change it up is making pumpkin terrariums. They make for a great seasonal centerpiece and is a festive way to top your table! It is really simple to do too, just simply cut the top off of your pumpkin and scoop out all of the insides (save the seeds for toasting later!) and place a foam block inside if you are using succulents or a small vase you can fill with water for more perishable flowers such as roses. There are really no rules to what foliage you fill your pumpkin with so have fun with it! Also you can get a bit creative and use different sized pumpkins and ones that are white, striped, or a little bit misshaped.

Happy carving!

Beds, beds, beds!

If you were to ask me what my favorite room in the house was, without a skipping a beat I’d answer my bedroom. My bedroom is my favorite place because it’s all my own. Every picture frame, every carefully placed knick-knack, and piece of furniture (even the desk chair that doubles as a second closet) are all individually and uniquely mine. Your bedroom should be a personal sanctuary away from your busy life that’s cozy and inviting.

To do this I find it very important to have, well…the perfect bed! I love nothing more than being engulfed in a sea of blankets, an over-sized duvet, and pillows. My bed is big, fluffy and covered in an embarrassing amount of throw pillows. With the change of weather it’s getting harder and harder to leave it every morning. No matter what your taste and home style are just make sure to get the perfect bedding for you! Once you have that, it’s a paradise for snuggles, movie marathons, brunch in bed, book reading, and hitting the snooze button.

 

 

Color or Neutral.. what's your fancy?

After rearranging the showroom and receiving our new finds, we noticed all the truly unique items we have this season! These new pieces all have a different flair and their very own personality. Large and small; these unique table topping, shelf enhancing, conversation starting décor items are now embellishing our showroom! 

Something fun and new are these ‘Wooden Fish Puppets’ from Mali, Africa. They are a great way to add a pop of color to a room. 

Here we have one of my favorite items. Coming in sizes small and large, each ‘Crystal Geode’ is different from the other. The sparkle they give off in the sunlight really creates a feeling a whimsy and fantasy. They are perfect for a nightstand or bedroom window sill. 

For another bit of fantasy, we have these great dinosaur sculptures.  With their detail and fossilized finish they would work well in any room with a darker color scheme. If your kids are willing enough, they’d also work well in any kids’ bedroom! 

For a more dramatic touch we have our new brass 12-point star sculptures. This item looks great in a bunch or just one on its own. 

If you are looking for something with a more natural and rustic feel there are our ‘Hand-carved Wood Squashes’. They’re called squashes because of their shape, but these bowls are perfect for a coffee table center piece. You can fill them with anything you like! Here we have them filled with sand and tea candles.

For the office or home library we have the ampersands sculpture with a vintage gold finish. It is a fun way to bring some shine to a desk or bookshelf. We also have our ceramic foot bookends which go great flanking some books.

What’s your favorite item?
