Bedroom: Before and After

I was looking through some old photos recently and came across this photo of our bedroom from when our house was for sale. I can't believe how far it's come! We added the wallpaper behind our bed and gave the walls a fresh coat of paint (Benjamin Moore - Decorators White). We also painted the bed (that we bought with the house). What a huge difference that made! Our sconces, the Wallace Lamp, are from one forty three and we have been so pleased with them! I just recently changed the bedding (it was darker before). I wanted to give the bed a cleaner look so I ended up going with the Soft-Washed Linen Duvet and Euro Shams from Anthropologie and it's been super soft and awesome. 

The biggest thing I have learned with decorating is that it takes time. Be patient with yourself through the process - for me things are always a work in progress!

Fall Bouquet

A few weeks ago I challenged myself with the task of creating a beautiful fall bouquet with grocery store flowers. I picked up two bunches of eucalyptus from Trader Joe's for $6 total and used left over pepper berry from a job I finished up earlier in the week. I love how this turned out and it lasted nearly two weeks! This just goes to show when you are on a budget it forces you to get creative :)

Beautiful photo by my lovely husband, Clark Brewer.

Southern Living Fall Entertaining

Fall is my favorite time of the year. I love everything about it - the crisp air, the smell of fires, the layers of sweaters, jackets and hats. Last fall Clark and I went to Virginia to photograph an event in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley. The party embodied all things rustic and fall. Here are a few of my favorite shots I was able to style. To me, they help tell the story of the day - upscale camping with family and friends. It was so fun to see the event featured in this season's issue of Southern Living Fall Entertaining See more of the beautiful day HERE.

Thank you to the girls at Ritzy Bee for planning such an amazing Fall event!

Britt Bass Turner Art Show

What a great time I had hosting the Britt Bass Trunk Show! You can see our super cute invite by Chelsea Petaja here. The morning was filled with fun, laughter, shopping and yummy treats made by my very sweet Mom. Of course seeing Britt's super cool art in my home made it very difficult not to want everything - surprise, surprise! But I did end up keeping the two yellow paintings over my dresser, Daffodil I and Daffodil II. They added a fun pop of sunshine yellow to my bedroom.

Thanks again Britt for teaming up on this fun event! Until next year...
