Thanksgiving Table Settings

 Hgtv.com is a great go-to site for decor inspiration for essentially any space. I came across a recent feature they did on Thanksgiving table settings and fell in love with the concepts. With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I thought I would share some of my favorites.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving, and for those of you who do not celebrate, I hope you have a wonderful Thursday.

Accent Wall: White Molding

One of my favorite shades for interior walls is white. If my husband would let me, every room in the house would be white (or a least a shade of white).  In the master bedroom we decided to do a light grey with blue undertones on three walls and one white accent wall. We wanted to add dimension to the white accent wall, so my husband added 10 OG boxes. It was a super easy project, and it adds so much texture to the walls. 

These pictures mostly just capture the accent wall and not the finished bedroom. I plan to post additional pictures of the final product soon. Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned:)

My Kitchen Organization: Non Everyday Items

As you may be aware, I absolutely love organizing.  When we built our house we knew we wanted as much storage as possible. We added cabinets under the countertop bar for extra space. Typically we have bar stools in front of this area, so it is best to store non essential items here.

I have a slight obsession with clear vases. Pop some fresh flowers in a clear vase, and it brings so much beauty and freshness to a room.  My favorite thing to do, is add fresh flowers to a space.

I do my best to edit the vases on a regular, so I am not overwhelmed with clutter.

My Closet Organization: The Perfect Hanger

Today I am sharing about closet organization, in particularly how I organize my skirts. I always enjoy getting tips and ideas from closet blog posts and hope that you do to.

About a year or so ago I switched over all of my hangers to slimline velvet hangers and I absolutely fell in love! They save so much space compared to the plastic hangers I was using. The slimline hangers I was using had the option of attaching clips (like these) to the bottom so you could hang pants and skirts. I decided not to go with this option for my bottoms because the clip seemed like it would damage the garmet. This led me on a search for the perfect pant hanger. I thad used the trouser clamp style in the past, but found that the item would usually end up falling to the ground. After trying out a couple of options I landed on the hanger pictured below. I know they have them at bed bath and beyond, however they are not on there website currently. Although,  these are very similar.  In case you didn't think it was possible for someone to get this excited about a hanger, I am here to prove you wrong. I LOVE THESE HANGERS!! They are gentle on your garments but still  provide a tight hold. They are very light weight, but can hold between 3 and 4 items. They also hang everything very evenly and neat.

I used 25 hangers in this picture below which hold 52 skirts, with each hanger holding about two skirts. (My job requires me to wear a lot of pencil skirts!) Each hanger has the capacity to hold at least one to two more skirts,  depending on the thickness of the garment.  

You may have noticed that in some pictures I have bags displayed on the shelves and in others I do not. I am undecided about which set up works.  On one hand, I LOVE the clean look without the bags, but on the other hand, the bags can add fun color and can serve as additional storage. Not sure where I will land on this one...

I am working on some upcoming posts of the other areas and components of my closet. Thanks for reading!

Floating Shelves

Do you have trouble committing to hanging up artwork? I have collected artwork through the years, and it typically doesn't fit beautifully into a pre-existing space with a pre-established color scheme. I decided that the best solution for me would be to have my husband build floating shelves, so I could display artwork that doesn't have a home, and be able to rotate it at my discretion.

The fun apart about this setup, is that you can apply the layering effect. We have a couple of framed New York Times front pages (given to me by my grandmother on momentous occasions) that are conducive to having smaller pictures in front of them. 

I do not consider this space complete, but I thought I would share where it stands now. I would like to add something under the first shelve, such as an ottoman or baskets. What do you think?
