Favorite Fall Wreaths Round-Up

Fall is just around the corner and we are itching for everything pumpkin (is anyone else addicted to pumpkin flavored everything?!), candles, sweaters, crunchy leaf lined streets, moody weather, and fall decor. One of our favorite ways to welcome fall into our home is hanging a fall wreath on our front door, so we've rounded up our five favorite fall wreaths this year, all under $90!

Price: $36.99

Oh Target, how we love you! This is the perfect wreath for transitioning into fall with a hint of yellow amongst the leafy greens. With this color palette, you can easily put the wreath up in late summer and leave it up until late November!


Price: $89

Though this is the priciest wreath on our list, it's a classic wreath that you will use for years to come. Lavender may not be the first thing you think of when you think "fall", but the dried lavender paired with the olive leafs give this wreath a classic fall feel that you will always love!


Price: $59.95

What says fall better than oak leafs and acorns?! This wreath would be dreamy on a front porch of a classic home on a oak tree lined street.


Price: $60

Joanna has done it again! This simplistic and clean wreath would look amazing on ANY front door, no matter the color or style!


Price: $69.95

Magnolia and eucalyptus leafs are one of our favorite greenery items to use when decorating. The combination in this wreath has us swooning!

Dream Home Series: Our Favorite Exterior


Design: Ashley Gilbreath | Photo: Laurey W. Glenn


We are so excited to be starting a bi-weekly Dream Pinterest Home series! Every other week, we'll feature our favorite pin of each area of the home. 

We're kicking off the series with an exterior favorite!  This classic Southern home was restored by Ashley Gilbreath. The home was built in 1910 (a favorite time period of ours for homes) and Zelda Fitzgerald even lived here!



We love the wrap around porch (perfect for rocking and lemonade), the charming railing, and classic white finish. Most of all, we love that when Ashley originally found the home, it was in need of A LOT of TLC (see above before photo). We love nothing more than an old rusty beauty brought back to life! Ashley did such a great job restoring the home to it's original esthetic, while still updating and modernizing it. There really is nothing like the charm of a classic home set in the picturesque landscape of the South.



Be sure to check the blog in two weeks for our next Dream Pinterest Home series post!

Reproduction Fridge Round-Up

There's nothing like the charm and nostalgia that a vintage fridge can add to a kitchen! However, many "true" vintage appliances come with their own issues like lack of shelf space, energy efficiency, and the need for constant upkeep/repairs. 

But no need for despair, for we have found the perfect solution...reproduction fridges! These vintage fridges are making their way back into the home, but with all the fixings that a modern household desires.

We love how these look and function! Elmira's offer plenty of storage space, the option to customize left/right door swing, AND they come in this gorgeous shade of yellow (as well as a variety of other colors!)


Option 2: Smeg

These Italian fridges have our hearts! Not only are they the epitome of a classic 1950's fridge, but they also offer adjustable shelving, a variety of sizes/colors, and are extremely energy efficient.




If your looking for a fridge that will stand the test of time, we found it for you! Not only does Heartland produce this gorgeous refrigerator, but also a matching dishwasher and range. These are so classic that we can definately see these making an appearance in Downton Abbey. 


Option 4: GE Artistry

GE has really upped their game in recent years and now offers an Artistry Line featuring this fridge and matching appliances. We love that it offers a homage to vintage appliances, while still offering a modern, clean look that would easily fit in in any home regardless of your style!


Option 5: Oranier

These state of the art German fridges aren't available for purchase in the US yet, but we are crossing our fingers they make their way across the pond soon! This fridge offers AUTOMATIC defrosting (why haven't we thought of that yet?!), egg containers, and an insanely amazing freezing capacity.


Which vintage reproduction fridge would you choose? Leave your choice in the comments below-we'd love to know which fridge would be the most popular!

Colorful Boho/Mid Century Space on a Budget



A gal has got some faith when she comes to me...a minimalist with an all-white and neutral home...for help in creating a colorful, boho, mid-century jungalow in her home! Britney and Charlie were in the process of building a home when she reached out for help in making an odd L-shaped living space feel cohesive and have a good flow to it. 

Britney and Charlie picked out their favorite wallpaper, and instead of spending a fortune to cover the entire wall, we framed in a section that we could have fun with and that would balance out the off-centered window. They owned a couple skulls that we added black-painted branches to for some pop! 

The painted pony wall helps balance out the other bold elements in the space as well as anchors that side of the room. 


The copper pipe curtain rod plays off the floating shelf line and that grid-patterned curtain was more perfect for this space than I imagined! 

It was Britney's dream to incorporate two of these hammock chairs that she loves so much! So a bench under the large window seemed the perfect fit for this relaxed, unstructured space! Since this room was built to eventually have a wood stove, we designed a window seat that her husband could build and could be moved and adjusted for when the fireplace is put in someday. At that point the window seat can also be used to store firewood in the cubbies. 


We all sat in the hammock chairs after hanging them, and we came to the conclusion that EVERYONE needs a hammock chair! They're amazing!!

I came across this sweet blue pendant at the Restore one day and I can't imagine a more perfect fixture for this space! We layered one of Britney's favorite paintings behind it. 






The plan is to make a driftwood chandelier to go over the table, however this light came in handy when we were unable to find driftwood in the winter!

These medallions were out of the bargain bin at Target. In order to give them some personality, we taped them, and spray painted sections of them with Britney's favorite color. The project took about 20 minutes start to finish and we had all the supplies! 


Testimonial...
"Having Vanessa design the space was truly one of the best decisions we've made! I was so intimidated with trying to find a way to balance Mid Century with Bohemian in new construction! Even though Vanessa's style is not my own, I have always loved her styling abilities and believed she could figure out my crazy! We love our home so much, down to every detail, and are so thankful for Vanessa's HOURS of work and the passion that she poured into our space. When Jana and Vanessa styled our home after months of prep, we literally got to watch our dreams come to life. It truly couldn't be more perfect!" - Britney
