Nearly Natural Faux Trees

One of our favorite elements to add into a room is greenery. It’s amazing how a branch, flower, fern etc can really liven up a space. There is something so organic about seeing the colors of nature in your home when you walk into a room. We are so excited to be teaming up with Nearly Natural for this post. They offer a large variety of plants and trees to use in any room in your home!

In our search for plants we often frequent our local nurseries. The hard thing about a nursery is that they might not always have just what you are looking for in the exact size you are looking for. You are also limited with what types of plants do best where. For example, we really wanted an olive tree in this corner of this living room but the natural light isn’t ideal. Olive trees do best in south facing windows and this one faces north.

Fall Home Decor

Our approach to decorating for the season is to do so in a way that is less literal and more about adding warmth in a way that doesn’t detract from the existing decor. When thinking about the elements we wanted to bring in, we approached it by considering how we could change the feel of the space to go hand-in-hand with the way the changing season feels. The end result is a home that is layered with varying colors and textures, and that feels cozy and warm for the coming cooler months.

For the front porch, we layered greenery, fall florals, and varying squash vegetables that are quintessential to the season. Because we didn’t want to be too literal with the decor, we just used a select few of the pumpkins and gourds, sprinkling them around the the potted plants to help lead the front porch from summer into fall.

We loving this dining space from Amber’s project Client Z to the E to the N Again. The whole home is so beautiful and inviting.

1. Elsie Baby Co makes such cute bows and they also have matching bib and bow sets so your little one’s accessories can coordinate perfectly.

2. Orange Street Paper Co. makes super cute wrapping paper, as well as art prints, greeting cards, and more.

3. Black definitely isn’t our first thought for a throw pillow, but this one is just so good.

4. This handmade vase is so beautiful; we just love that texture.

5. We’re pulling out the fall scents and this candle is a must with it’s sweet spiced scent; it’s just enough to not be overpowering.

6. We love these cute heeled mules.

7. Who wouldn’t want to buy a home designed by Joanna Gaines? This one is so pretty!

8. We love this carved bowl. Just imagine how cute it would look filled with mini white pumpkins for fall or pine cones and citrus for the winter?

9. It’s finally starting to cool down around here and this chai spiced hot chocolate sounds so deliciously warming right now.

10. These velvet bows are so super cute! Such a fun way to dress up a simple pony.

11. “At Home” is a fascinating book about the history of private life. Bill Bryson’s way of storytelling keeps you coming back for more as he discusses how building the Erie Canal impacted the development of the cellar, and how and when bricks became a popular building material. If nothing else, this book will you give you a greater appreciation for living in the time we do.

12. This simple blanket looks so cute and cozy.

We’ve rounded-up some amazing and affordable dining chairs for you all today! We’ve even included some pairings to mix up your side and end chairs. We love mixing up side and end chairs for a more custom and collected look, just like we did in our Mapleton new build pictured above.

Rather than doing chairs all around the table, mixing in a bench is a fun way to add more seating. Benches are a great option for families with kids too, plus you can always pull the bench out when you need additional seating elsewhere.

Product Round-up : Affordable Chandeliers

Photography by Becky Kimball | from our Mapleton New Build project

Today we’re sharing the first of many product round-ups.  We recently asked on Instagram what products you wanted us to find for you and one of the most asked for was lights that are good but also affordable.  Everyone has their own unique preferences and their spaces have unique needs, so we’ve broken this post up by styles to help you in your search for the perfect light.  Today, we’re starting off with chandeliers.  Good quality chandeliers can cost thousands, but we’ve found many that are good, stylish and only cost a few hundred at most!  We’ll be doing round-ups of pendants, sconces, and exterior lights as well, but if there are any other requests, let us know in the comments!

Midway Remodel

Last year we got an new client inquiry from the sweetest couple who needed a renovation of their older mountain home.  Their kitchen didn’t reflect their transitional style.  We discussed doing new cabinetry, moving the microwave to the island, doing a new backsplash and all new appliances. We kept the alder crown molding to keep some of the rustic feel. We partnered with Killowen Construction for this remodel.  Here is a look at the before!

This new kitchen feels like a breath of fresh air. We couldn’t be happier with it. It’s not a huge kitchen but it proves how far custom cabinetry can take a space.

Floating Shelf Round-up

We love to add floating shelves in kitchens to help break up the cabinetry and make the space feel more open without losing storage space. Open shelving also creates the perfect spot for styling favorite artwork and accessories to add character to a space.

For the shelving in our One Room Challenge project, we went with a warm wood to contrast against the white cabinetry. Placing them by the window helps keep the area around the sink light and bright.

Since the lower and upper cabinets in our Traverse Mountain Modern project were already contrasting, we went with white open shelves to keep the space cohesive. Keeping the upper shelving and cabinets the same color keeps the space from being too busy and hard on the eyes.
