2018 interior design trends

Well, here we are friends, in a new year!  With the flip of the calendar comes a new set of interior design trends. There's something about a new year that makes the idea of a fresh look for my home so appealing. While I do not believe in following trends from year to year or change my style to what seems to be "in" I do like to use trends in my home that work with my style.  If you're ready to start a new project in your home and are curious about what's trending consider the following interior design trends for 2018.

Minimal Christmas and Winter decorating Ideas

Hi, friends this year I've gone for quite minimalist Christmas decorations using greenery, pinecones, baskets, and handmade treasures. We have a traditional Christmas tree but I kept everything else pared-back and fuss-free.


Easy Jammy Sugar Cookies

Hi friends!  We are less than a week away from Christmas day and I am in baking mode!  One of my favorite Christmas traditions is baking cookies!  The scent of cookies baking in the oven always makes it feel like Christmas in our home.  One of the first cookies on my list to bake are these easy jam filled sugar cookies.  This recipe includes ingredients that most of us already have on hand and is quick and easy to make.


How to make Abstract Fabric Christmas Ornaments

Hi friends, have you noticed the abstract art trend around shops and online too?  Abstract art is a big thing right now and I love it!  Over the years I've created Christmas decor with traditional colors, but sometimes there is nothing better than adding a modern vibe to a classic idea.

Today's project is one of those classics.  I used Ball Mason Jar Lids to create DIY Christmas ornaments to hang on my tree or to give as gifts.  I used fabric with a geometric abstract pattern to add my own twist to this classic favorite.   Click through for the tutorial and my DIY photos.


Rustic Dining Room Decorated For Christmas

Hello Friends, It's that magical time of year again...Time to deck the halls, wrap the presents and trim the trees!  On Christmas morning, after all the gifts are unwrapped, my family & I gather around the table for a leisurely Christmas breakfast.  I serve pancakes with fresh fruit, warm maple syrup, freshly
squeezed orange juice and hot coffee.  I savor this moment every year!  This simple pleasure of slowing down and spending time with the ones I love is what matters to me the most on Christmas.


Come on in and I'll show you around our rustic dining room decorated for Christmas.

One Room Challenge Coastal Living-Family Room Reveal

I'm so glad you are here!  If this is your first time visiting love my simple home, welcome.  For the past 7 weeks, I have been working on a makeover of our living-family room for the One Room Challenge and today I am sharing the finished space.  If you missed any of the past weeks, please feel free to click through!

This is my second Room Makeover in the ORC as a guest participant.  This time around a one-week extension was added.  Before I begin the final reveal of my coastal-inspired space I want to thank Linda from Calling It Home who is the creator of the One Room Challenge!  Thank you, Linda!  Without this challenge, my rooms might never get finished.

These seven weeks have flown by and the days have been filled with expectations, excitement, and some anxiety.  I'm so in love with the final design and very proud to share it with you today!


One Room Challenge Week 6

Hello friends, it's week 6 of the One Room Challenge!  This week the sofa arrived and I purchased an area rug for the room.  I still have some work to wrap up over the weekend to prepare for the reveal next week.  Accessories need to be picked out, the art will be installed, and I need to spend time styling and photographing the space.
