Midwinter Decor Highlights

A few recent decor and organisation changes I’ve made lately that have made a BIG difference:

I got this new bedding set from Winners. The light yellow and grey pattern brightens up the whole room, which I think is really important when it’s so cold and dark still. The bamboo wall decals are from Ikea and the wall has a sage green paint in a ragged on effect.

I used to have a chair here in the bedroom that always ended up COVERED in clothes. So I took out the chair and added some functional storage instead. In the wicker chest (from Winners) I keep spare bed linens and in the Ikea small storage boxes, I keep off season shoes and other odds and ends. The pillow is also from Ikea and I have decorated it with pins that I’ve gotten all around the world whilst travelling. The slipper booties are from Penningtons.

Last, I have filled this Ikea candle dish with white pillar candles, a random votive candle and a scented (Chai Spice) candle that I received for Christmas. It also has a collection of decorative stones and a wooden heart that I’ve received over the years. It makes cold, dark nights so much brighter and warmer!

What are you’re favourite ways to spruce up your living space in the winter?

Craft Fair Finds

Craft fairs are one of my favourite things about the lead up to Christmas. You can find amazing (often) local artists. I happened upon Raven’s Rest Studio and was in love with pretty much everything at the booth, so I picked up a few little pieces. Jennifer Conway makes cards, jewelry, magnets, keychains and the like and they are just so cool. I had to have the necklace above, although I had a tough time choosing between that one and another. I also grabbed a couple of cards. I love the vintage photos on them and the words are just so…for lack of a better term, sassy. Ha.

Raven’s Rest Studio has an Etsy shop with a small selection of pieces. I hope more of the jewelry gets listed there, because I could probably buy a few more things…

Do you like going to craft fairs in the fall?

I found this picture on pinterest and even though I am not redoing my own room, I thought that I would find some of the pieces that make this room so lovely.

October Home Decor Highlights

This month I made a few of little changes to two decorative areas in my home. One is a bookshelf top that is a bit of a focal area of the living room and the other is an odd little built in shelf in my bathroom that I have not altered in years. Anyway, I am in love with both of these little displays at the moment so I thought I’d share them!
