Winter Sunroom of Black and Blue and White too!

I wasn’t quite sure in which direction I was going in to refresh the sunroom for Winter.

Initially I had some snowflake pillows from my Christmas decor in the room.

The sunroom was taking on a very neutral look . . . until . . . I took a trip to Arhaus.

Then the room became the

Winter Sunroom of Black and Blue and White too!

A Blue and White Floral Vignette

The other day I received my copy of Southern Lady magazine.

It was their Annual Decorating issue.

When I saw the cover, I gasped!….That’s my pretty lidded jar!

The cover, like many covers of beautiful magazines,

gave me the idea and inspiration to re-create it.

So here is my version of a Blue and White Floral Vignette,

right off the cover of Southern Lady Magazine!

My Christmas Guest Room and a Beautiful Tree

My Guest Room is always simply dressed for Christmas.

Yes, you read that right . . . simply . . . I can do simply at times!

However, this year that is not the case as I added a grand tree in the Guest Room.

The tree took on a 12 Days of Christmas theme with a Southern Traditional look.

So let’s take a look at My Christmas Guest Room and a Beautiful Tree.

The Blush Christmas Master Bedroom

It seems as though I have been doing things a bit differently this year

in decorating my home for Christmas.

In past years, in my Master Bedroom, you may have seen very festive bedding

of traditional colors and the traditional patterns of Christmas.

This year, I decided that I will go with  my heart and what I am loving.

So here you go!

Blue and White Fall Tablescape

I thought we would go down memory lane today.

To revisit my Blue and White Fall Tablescape with orange accents.

I began creating the elongated centerpiece by using a faux magnolia garland.

It is always great to have some greenery to anchor a centerpiece

to use as a base to create that long narrow look we all have grown to love.

Using a garland is a great way to start.

“Fall”ing for Blue for Fall Decor

I am “fall”ing for blue for Fall decor this year.

I am doing this for two reasons.

One, because I love blue.

Two, because I need to keep my interiors simple in these days

of being in the process of selling our home.

I was able to visit a couple of Pottery Barn stores while I was in California

and I caught some great sales.

Can you have too much blue and white?

The other day I was strolling through my favorite consignment store, Always Home,

with some friends and I spotted something.

It caught my eye right away and I scurried over to it

as it sat so beautifully on a table.

I then thought to myself . . . Can you have too much blue and white?

As I looked the item over, I thought, now really Shirley . . .  do you really need this?

I walked around a little more, and realized, there is no such thing

as too much blue and white!

Guest Room Refresh

While I was eliminating a few large items in the Guest Room,

and doing some general de-cluttering and staging.

I could not help but think if I should refresh the room

with Summer decor? Or should I just do a Guest Room Refresh? Refresh I did.

 When packing up some pillows, I kept a pillow aside,

knowing I would use it in one of the rooms for the summer.

A faux grain sack pillow, Summer House.

Hope you all had a most wonderful 4th of July,

celebrating our Nation’s Independence Day.

We had a great day of celebration with friends.

Today I present to you my upper Summer Porch of Cool Blues and White.

Yes, the porch got a little bit of de-cluttering and staging too,

keeping the space pretty and simply stated.

You’re A Grand ‘Ole Flag

As the 4th of July, Independence Day, approaches,

I am always reminded of my childhood. Of sparklers and firecrackers.

Of sitting on top of the hood of my parents car watching fireworks at the park.

But most of all, I am reminded of songs. Songs of patriotism that my dad would sing.

Oh he loved to have sing-a-longs in the car.

One of the songs was, You’re A Grand ‘Ole Flag.
