doe a deer

July 30, 2012

Posted by in home decor

one of the things i love most about decorating is mixing styles. i love to mix really old pieces with new ones and especially like throwing in some rustic touches on top of it all. whether it’s a cabin-in-the-woods feel or a more aztec vibe you’re going for, i think rustic pieces can really give your space extra depth.

column one: 1 | 2 | 3  column two: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4

one way to accomplish this look would be with this modern twist on the ol’ mounted deer head- faux taxidermy. it can give your space a modern-yet-rustic look- not to mention it’s a much kinder way to decorate. above are some of my favorites!

when i added a few outdoor lights to our patio (see above) i couldn’t believe the insta-magic that occurred. it made the space so cozy and romantic! with cost effective options from target and ikea, it’s an easy project that gives a lot of bang for your buck. the above project only cost me $26! below you’ll find more inspiration on how to make a little insta-magic yourself.

edible sugar doilies

sugar doilies

speaking of tea, i am absolutely in love with these sugar doilies from sweet de ja vu. they are a flexible, edible lace that have a sweet, melt on your tongue, creamy taste. though i would be happy to simply have them on hand for cups of tea, hot cocoa and coffee, you could use these sweets just about anywhere. on desserts, cakes and cookies, oh my!

i can’t even begin to tell you how much i have fallen in love with this house featured over on ikea’s blog! the wooden table, crocheted stool, stacked wood and possibly my favorite feature- that gorgeous mint green light! however, if i can direct your attention to the right a little bit…

you’ll see these fabulous picture ledges used to display this most adorable collection of plates. i may just have to start keeping my eye out for vintage plates!

embroidery hoop art

popping up everywhere, i love the simplicity of this latest trend. embroidery hoop art is a great way to doll up a drab wall or add an unexpected element to a traditional wall art display. adding a round piece of art to an array of squares can instantly take a display to the next level- and embroidery hoops seem to fit the bill perfectly!

1) this is my happy place
2) keep it simple
3) nerds have more fun
4) shabby chic hoop
5) reindeer hoop
6) i heart you
7) blossom
