Everyone knows what August means. Labor Day is getting closer, nights are getting longer, and summer's beach days are drifting away: back to reality we all must go! I can hear cringing and sighing and whining from everywhere already! Time to put on our big girl pants and D-E-A-L!
Chanukah just started and Christmas is swiftly following! What I love most, more than gifts and more than food, is the spirit of joy and peace people seem to carry around during these months, but what I love secondly as much is the festive decorations! I am a blogger and lover of small space interior decor after all, it's just in my nature. Being in the blogging world it's easy to spot the trends, and this season I've fallen in love with greenery. So deck the halls, and deck the doorways, because greenery, both living and imitation, is on-trend this holiday season!
If there was ever a post to fall under my geek out section, this definitely makes it into the top three (so does this one). On Saturday, John and Sherry of Young House Love came to the Dallas West Elm for a signing of their brand new book Young House Love, 243 Ways to Paint, Craft, Update & Show Your House Some Love. I would highly recommend it, their book already has pushed me to complete a few loose DIY ends at my own house, and has given me some great ideas for new projects for the future.
While I was working on some Halloween projects last night in my living room, such as rearranging some furniture and making creepy spider egg sacs, I realized how much my living room has changed over the past seven months of living here. I thought it would be fun to share some photos of how the room currently looks now in October and how it used to look back when we moved in.
