Hi friends, happy Friday!! A few weeks ago I shared my Fall Dining Room, which was by far one of the most fun seasonal rooms I have decorated. I had many favorites which made the space feel cozy & layered, perfect for fall. I created a macramé wall hanging, an original watercolor print with vibrant fall hues and made a unique table runner from West Elm carpet square samples I bought for just a few dollars each. Reinventing a new purpose for something pretty is my jam. I saw these 16" x 16" carpet samples at the West Elm outlet as I headed for the checkout. I couldn't believe my eyes! The irony is that I had just finished writing THIS article for BHG on kilim pillows so to find these … [Read More...]
I have been blogging for about 5 years now and I still want to pinch myself each and every time I get an opportunity to be a part of something that I could have only imagined in my wildest dreams. To say I am grateful is an understatement. Who would have thought when I began this crazy journey, which I had NO clue what I was doing, that I would one day be writing this article about the Better Homes & Gardens Stylemaker event I attended. This is the 3rd BHG Stylemaker event I have attended and each year I am blown away. This year is no exception. The event took place at the Gramercy Park Hotel, which is just gorgeous! I went in that morning with John, he went to work and I went to this … [Read More...]
Happy Friday friends! Ahh...how I love this day! Last month I shared my nook makeover along with my floating bench. I had so many questions about how I made the abstract art that hung above the bench that I thought it was about time I shared the details. Often I get an idea and just jump in without taking pictures, my bad. But...this may not be the worst thing because it will leave more creative room for you to make it your own. Many of you may not know this but my first love was always art. Through my childhood we traveled a lot, my sisters lived in other states as did my grandparents. My dad also loved history and visiting such locations, throw that into the mix and we were in the car a … [Read More...]
Oh my gosh, it has been a busy week! I shared my fall porch, went into NYC for the BHG Stylemaker Event and .....we got a new puppy!!! I haven't mentioned this on the blog because it was such a HUGE decision that I honestly didn't even think would come to be. We are slowing adjusting to life with him and so far so good, he is a sweetheart! I have been wanting another dog for our family since Murphy passed away last December. I cried for a long time after he left us, it was heartbreaking on so many levels. But I still wanted to fill that void with another. My boys did as well, but...my husband needed more time. He needed more time because he liked the freedom again. Murphy towards the … [Read More...]
Hi friends! Today is the day we all share our Fall Front Porches, yay! If you have been following the Farmhouse Holiday Series then you know how incredible these ladies are in this group. Kristen has put the entire series together so seamlessly and I am beyond grateful to be included amongst such talent and heart. I decided to keep things somewhat simple this year on my farmhouse front porch. I feel I can breathe a little better when I don't over clutter. I used all of my beautiful ferns, gardenia & aloe plants and added mums for a touch of color. I also went out to my favorite place on the North Fork for pumpkins and layered in different sizes and hues. I changed up a … [Read More...]
Hi City Farmhouse friends, it's Emily from The Wicker House. I took a little break from blogging during the Summer, but now that my boys are back in school again I have a bit more time to work on new projects around our home, like this one that I am really excited to share with you today. I used fabric to create a stylish look to an otherwise boring picture frame that sits on my picture ledges, it is an easy gallery wall update that is very affordable. If you haven't seen my tutorial on how to make my picture ledges, you can read all about it HERE. They are so simple to make, and the best part is that they allow me to move around my pictures without leaving a bunch of extra nail … [Read More...]
Welcome to my rustic modern fall dining room tour & tablescape! The biggest thank you to my friend Kristen for putting this Farmhouse Holiday Series together! During the holiday season we will be opening up our homes & hearts to you in the hopes of making this festive time full of creativity & inspiration. I am thrilled to be partnering with ALL Modern on this space, to bring you an urban twist on farmhouse décor. You all know I like to mix and match and never really stay within the confines of one style. I brought in metals, warm wood tones, stone, natural elements and lots of texture to create a space that was warm & inviting but also stylish. For the color palette I … [Read More...]
Thank you so much for the warm responses to my Fall Family Room Tour, I really appreciate all of your kind words! Fall has always been my favorite season for the sheer fact that it's a slower pace & a great time for reflection. After the business of summer it's nice to get to know myself again, if that makes any sense. There are so many incredible things about autumn that awaken my senses, it is hard not to be inspired. One idea that has inspired me lately is textile art or macramé. I am a texture nut and nothing says fall like an abundance of cozy textures. I decided to try it and I am so glad I did because not only is it fun but it's easy. This tutorial is very basic, you can find … [Read More...]
Hi there friends! This is a post you don’t want to miss because today I am part of a Fall Printable Hop that includes 35 incredible prints for FREE!! These ladies are the best of the best when it comes to creating beautiful prints and graphics, so good that I actually doubt if I should participate. But…I realize we all have different things we bring to the table and that is why it is so wonderful.
Welcome to my modern farmhouse fall family room & second week of the Farmhouse Holiday Series hosted by my friend Kristen at Ella Claire. I am honored to be a part of this talented group of farmhouse bloggers as we head into the festive season ahead Last week these ladies shared their kitchens and I was blown away. So….if last week is any indication of what this week will bring, grab your cup of coffee and get comfy.
This was an incredible week in blogland & have recently found some fabulous shops on Etsy that are fall inspired in one way or another, so I thought I would share my absolute favorites as we head towards this whimsical season.
There are so many things to love about fall, afternoons spent outdoors in the cool, crisp air, cozy sweaters, big warm blankets, picnics, pumpkin everything and of course coffee. Tis the season to drink up and enjoy the flavors of fall. I am delighted to be partnering with Starbucks® to bring you my Fall Capsule-all my favorite home décor essentials found at Target. I geared my must have list around easy entertaining, cozy styling ideas and that hot drink we all love this time of year, coffee.
