Easter Decor

easter_decor1

Happy Easter! Behind Christmas, Easter is my second favorite season to decorate our home.
Eggs and bunnies everywhere!

My mom has gifted me these shell eggs as my Easter gift the past few years.
I love that they are neutral colors and add natural textures to our fireplace mantel.

I filled this shallow green planter with a large vanilla candle and craft paper eggs.
The eggs are probably supposed to be painted but I love their plain color.

This is the most durable couch ever. But… it’s too deep.
We like that it’s perfect for lounging but our guests always complain about the luxe depth.
I recently added the white pillows to help with the depth for our guests.

Graham and Arden’s Easter baskets are sitting in our kitchen ready for the Easter bunny to hide their eggs.
Graham’s basket is green with a yellow and white striped liner and green monogram.
Arden’s basket is brown with a navy gingham liner and green monogram.

Last week we added new bamboo shades to the kitchen windows and to Arden’s nursery windows.
We chose these flatweave bamboo roman shades in the color driftwood and I LOVE their color tone.
The sun shines so strong in our kitchen each evening while we’re making dinner so these are very helpful.

Since we’re doing the Keto diet this year, our fruit basket has been bare.
I filled up a Juliska Berry & Thread dog bowl (shhh!) with pretty pale green eggs to add some color to this corner.

Oversized pale green eggs are piled in a pierced silver bowl on our dining table.
(Graham calls them dinosaur eggs.)

There is a little copper bunny sitting by the soap in our powder room.

Two woven bunnies welcome guests on the porch by our front door.

In the fall I planted white sterling jonquil bulbs and white pansies.
I expect the jonquils to bloom any day now. Graham has enjoyed watching them grow from bulbs.

Arden: 3 Months (and favorite baby gear)

13weeks

Our sweet baby Arden is 3 months old!
He’s the happiest baby I’ve ever seen. He loves to “chat” with me with coos and gargles. He gets the biggest grins on his face.

I enjoy seeing other mom’s lists of their favorite baby items so I thought it would be fun to share mine.
After two baby boys, these are items I’ve found the most useful or the items I reach for first.
(links below)

baby_boy_gearMy favorite baby boy gear:

1. Miracle Blanket Swaddle
2. Ikea Leka Baby Gym
3. Gap Favorite Footed One-Piece
4. Britax Double Stroller
5. Orla Kiely by aden + anais Bibs
6. Samsung BabyVIEW Video Baby Camera and Monitor
7. Dr. Brown’s bottles

This week we moved him from sleeping in a bassinet in our bedroom to his crib in the nursery.
He’s been sleeping from about 7 pm to 6:30 am. So thankful for sleep.

I highly recommend using these Miracle Blanket swaddles if you have an infant.
They’ve been one of our most used items with Graham and Arden as babies.

Home Decor Updates

homedecor1

Now that I’m finally healed from my c-section and baby Arden has found a decent schedule, I’ve been in the mood to decorate.
I enjoy blogging about my decor updates. I think it’s fun to look back on my decor style from previous years.
Hopefully I can provide a little inspiration along the way.

Let’s start in the living room with this wooden wreath over the back porch doors.
It’s made from old tree stumps (like you would find rotting in the woods ha!).
It provides texture and the perfect focal point for that wall.
Thanks, Mom!

homedecor3

My latest addition to this room are the lanterns flanking the back doors.
They’re made of my favorite materials – galvanized metal, rustic wood, and rope.
Their stripes add a fun pattern to the room.

homedecor2

I finally figured out where to hang this antique corbel from my sister, Abby. It adds nice focal height above Graham’s craft table.
I’m testing out this moss ball on the corbel until I can figure out a better solution.
Any ideas? I have a larger moss ball. Would that look better?

Our winter mantel has a new addition of Graham’s and Arden’s silhouettes in a circular frame.
I traced their profiles from photographs in Photoshop, printed the lines on textured cream card stock,
cut out their silhouettes, then glued them to a piece of gravel card stock.
So sweet!

homedecor6

Another of my little DIY projects from the past month is this painting of Schumacher’s Chenonceau pattern.
It’s one of my favorite fabrics/wall covering patterns.
The background is painted RH Slate and the pattern is painted RH Stone.
I found the rustic wooden frame at Target on clearance with an ugly black silk image of plants.
I actually have two of the frames and plan to paint another for the adjacent column in the living room.

These two brass? platters are my latest addition to the kitchen.
I found them in an antique store in Bucks County, Pennsylvania several years ago.
I love their patina, design, and unusual detailed patterns.
Does anyone know more information about these?

This shield shaped mirror is a new addition to our entry vestibule from the garage.
It’s made from rusty metal and is hung by a thick rope.

homedecor12
I’m not sure if I’ve previously showed this angle of our home. Forgive me if it’s a repeat.
We have two bumblebee hooks (from the Young House Love collection at Target) to hold keys near the garage door.
This framed print is by designer Dana Tanamachi.

homedecor13

On the third wall in this vestibule is a little gallery of black and white family photos of my babies.
I found these frames at HomeGoods in the baby section. They were pastel pink and white.
I painted over the pink with Slate paint from RH. I loved the shapes too much to pass them up just because of their color.
They don’t have alligator teeth hangers on the back for hanging on the wall so I used brass plate hangers.

homedecor14

I love the snowy mountain view from my office windows.

Thank you for visiting! Soon I’ll be decorating for Easter!

Home Decor Update: Vintage Peacocks

vintage_peacocks2

Happy Monday! We were snowed in all weekend up here on the mountain.
We had a scary time getting up the big hill to our neighborhood on Friday evening.
Spinning tires on a snowy hill, sliding backwards and spinning 180 degrees back down the hill is not my idea of fun.
Luckily we ended up front first back at the bottom of the hill facing the stop sign and were able to gain control.
We later followed a salt truck up the hill and made it home just fine. Whew!
Anyway, my snow day project was to paint and hang my vintage metal peacock collection.

vintage_peacocks8

I had painted most of my peacocks white a few years ago but they were still a bit mismatched. I repainted them all gray this weekend.
The paint is Pebble from Restoration Hardware baby&child. It’s a can I had leftover from a previous project.

vintage_peacocks9

The peacock’s paint dried on long pieces of kraft paper all around my kitchen counters.

vintage_peacocks11

I spread the painted peacocks on my kitchen floor to find the best layout.

vintage_peacocks10

This is the crazy tall wall in our stairway. It’s probably 30 feet high.
Michael figured out different angles to prop the ladder over the stairs so we could hang the birds.
#dontlook

vintage_peacocks1

I love this view of the stairway from the living room. The wall looks lacy with the peacocks peeking around the corner.

vintage_peacocks6

Pebble is a subtle shade of gray against our cream wall color (Ash by Restoration Hardware).

vintage_peacocks5

I’ve been collecting these vintage peacocks for about eleven years! They seem to find me when I’m out shopping in antique stores.
They are all slightly different shapes and sizes. They were all painted different shades by their former owners.
One set even had glitter on each feather! I’m happy they’re now all cohesive in their new home.

Thanks for visiting! I have a few more home decor updates to share soon so I’ll talk to y’all soon.
