This buffet table has been known to collect kid toys and art and that’s pretty much it. Since this is the first FALL in our new home, it’s been nice to decorate, move things around, sprinkle some spookies and create warmer spaces that truthfully have been neglected. We’re still in the process of living in these spaces and seeing what is working and isn’t working and tweaking as we go – a concept that I fully embrace and tell design clients to do the same. Of course you need essentials, but how you end of decorating it and making it function is up to how you live in it.
Well, FALL is kinda here and it’s been flirting with us with temps in the low/mid 70s. I’m on my third, okay fourth, harvest candle and the small updates we’ve been making around the house make my heart sing!
This is a feature wall in our home with the vertical shiplap and stunning iron railing detail. It also is highly visible from the kitchen and main living space. We went under the stairs (see the hidden door?) and got all our spookies out last week and went full tilt. The kids would have things everywhere if they could, but mama needs to be a little strategic about it 🙂 Who’s with me!?
The biggest update, besides the sweet bats are the buffet lamp, textured pot, cozy through and tall rattan basket. All super crazy affordable but still made the biggest impact.
Making mini moments throughout your home is so critical – I know they stop me in my tracks and slow me down for a second. It’s not lost on me that this beautiful home we built and designed is magic and the little vignettes you create a gentle reminders.
