Sensational Silver on Display

Category: Glamorous Decor

Here’s a little decor upgrade that I have a feeling you will  absolutely be able to participate in -without having to purchase anything….

If you’re over a certain age, you most likely have more than a few items around the house made of silver or silver plated .  If I’m guessing WHERE those items are-it would probably  be in storage. Am I right?!  Soooo here’s a thought..why not take those items out of storage, clean them up with a bit of elbow grease and silver polish and display  them in a multitude of  glamorous ways around your home.

For Example:

Silver Trays :Perfect for display. Put out a tray as decor- simply on it’s own or group items together (books, perfumes, candles etc)  and whah lah-instant glam.

Silver Tray used as a Back Splash

Silver pitchers,Urns,Tea  Sets:.Fill with any assortment of items: Kitchen  Utensils, Make up brushes,  Flowers & Plants (*Quick tip-When working with fresh flowers or any type of living  plant that needs to be watered:put  growing item in a clear container or vase /add water and only then insert into your  silver container .

Below are a few examples of creative ways to re purpose all that beautiful Silver you have in storage… Display Away!!!

Enchante’ means “nice to meet you” and what could be more welcoming than an entrance into your home that is decked out. Stripes are a perfect compliment to make an area look larger and works perfectly with well appointed accent colors and  a few well appointed pieces.

Wonderful Work Spaces

Category: Glamorous Decor

Hello Monday. It’s back to work !

Speaking of work …did you know that 43% of Americans work from home! Bearing in mind that  a home office is almost a requirement these days, I thought it might be nice to post some wonderful work spaces that inspire! If you’re looking  to do a little sprucing UP for Spring, I’ve sourced a bevy of beautiful images  & BONUS- my top three items that every home office should have to make your day productive and pleasurable.

When it comes to having a work space that inspires creativity and productivity,here are a few features you want to keep in mind when upgrading your space:

  1. A comfortable  office chair . You’re going to be doing allot of sitting in that chair so it best be comfortable and if per chance it has a bit of style…all the better.  Gone are the days of sitting in a standard  swivel chair with lackluster style. Today you can use a bevy of beautiful seating alternatives to get to  your Chair Bliss.
  2. A desk that fits your space and your needs: At the bare minimum you have to have a desk or table big enough for your computer and offers a space for you to write. That’s the minimum. It needs to be the right width and height so you can work comfortably.
  3. Lighting:  Good lighting is key! Natural light is  an added bonus in any room not to mention looking outside and seeing a bit of nature is always inspiring.

Tuesday Tip-Delightful Daybeds

Posted By: Terri
Category: Glamorous Decor

Today’s Tuesday Tip is all about the Delightful Daybed.

The holidays are just around the corner and there’s always that possibility of an overnight guest needing a place to stay. The daybed is  the perfect solution for offering a secluded space for one and at the same time can be put in  dual purpose setting because the daybed doesn’t actually look like a bed and can be a welcome addition to just about any living space in your home.

Daybeds can be found in a bevy of price points ranging from $500-$5,000,but you needn’t spend a fortune to make your daybed look luxe.  Simply  by adding some beautiful pillows, cover  the bed with a comfy duvet or bedspread (preferably tucked in if the daybed you have has a mattress)   and add a major pop of decor like an impressive overhead canopy or some pretty eye catching rugs, coffee or side tables and whah lah…you have a room ready for any guest to feel welcome and pampered.

If you’re looking for a little daybed dreaminess, here are a few examples that I hope will inspire.

Sensational Shoe Shelving

Posted By: Terri
Category: Glamorous Decor

I have a sneaking suspicion that you and I have more than a few things in common. ( How do I know this..Well, I’m not a psychic but if you’re reading my blog you most likely have a hankering for fashion).  

For instance..if I were to guess…You probably own a “number (usually in the double digits)  of very pretty shoes that one might even consider “Works of Art.” Now,  I’m not proposing  that these pretty shoes be put in a  museum, absolutely not (beautiful shoes are meant to be worn) BUT, if you happen to be needing some additional storage space for these “Oh so special & pretty pairs” I have a little DIY solution for you  today.

I have uncovered not one but two creative ways to display and store shoes that are  DIY- doable  and assembled with materials that are easy to find!

If you’re looking for ways to display your prettiest pairs or just need some wall art..this might just do the trick.

**Shelf doesn’t have to be made of wood! Even books can do the same! This wall is awesomely decorated with shelves made of book to display an array of stylish footwear. What’s great is that making them is not that hard at all. You can use L-brackets as the base to secure the book. Make sure the book pages is glued tightly so they won’t be flipping around when the wind blows. You can also spray coat the exterior with protective coating to protect its surface.

Halloween Pumpkin Prep…

Posted By: Terri
Category: Glamorous Decor

FUN FACT….

Halloween is the second most celebrated holiday of the entire year! Christmas still holds the number one spot but seriously (????) Halloween has out -spotted Thanksgiving in the scheme of holiday celebrations!?  THAT is making quite a statement.

Halloween’s style quota  has exploded in terms of  Halloween costumes available for ADULTS, massive and might I add outlandish Halloween parties, and indoor and outdoor decor.

And….speaking of holiday decor..did you get the memo that carving pumpkins  is no more. At the very least there seems to be a major push to paint your pumpkins and if you have the artistic skills of Picasso-well all the better. I could not believe my eyes when I came upon this assortment of pumpkins that would be perfect for porch display.

If you’re looking to put down your pumpkin carving knife and paint a fantastical design this Halloween, here are a few  painted pumpkin options that I hope  will inspire.
