I'll be home for the holidays

I started with a new client this fall, 
When I walked in the door I could not 
wait to start! 

Check out the before photos: 
What a difference adding accents can make a home. 

I love the outside! 
I wanted to make the front porch look really inviting! 

I added a farm table and birdcage 
with fresh greens...

Love this large vintage sled I found! 

The chandelier is a great touch. 


Vintage rugs work great on porches!

Peacock feathers!! 

Now inside the home! 

This cabinet is from another room,I painted it and added legs to give it a fresh look. 

Filled the book shelfs with winter decor and 
old photos of the kids from past winters. 

Added these tins to entry way to change throughout the year.. 

This was black and I gave it a facelift.

My favorite touch for the kids.. 
Hot coco bar...

My favorite! 
Deer antlers... 
We sell them at the denim loft. 

I added this vintage buffet to dinning area. 

Love this big framed Santa.. 

Cow skin rugs really warm up your room... 
and clean up great! 

A big thank you to my client for letting
me be apart of her home transformation 
and letting me share to you.
