In the design world, I love when traditional meets modern. Farmhouse tables are a part of this timeless look. The best elements of a farmhouse table is the ability to be styled in various ways. As can be seen in the pictures below, each table has its own unique look due to the surrounding decor and paint colors chosen. This table is extremely versatile and I cannot wait to get one for my own home.

Do you search Etsy for creative ideas? Do you buy an ungodly amount of Etsy products? Well, I am one of those individuals, especially during my time as a bride-to-be. Etsy is an amazing resource and lets people with creative abilities be able to showcase their “art”. I am a large advocate for giving to the mom-and-pop stores, that is why I prefer boutique shopping and local coffee shops compared to Macy’s and Starbucks. Don’t be deceived… I do shop at the large corporate stores as well. But, overall my preference would be to help out the common folks just like myself. Etsy is a great platform for me to do this kind of shopping, so here are some amazing products I found on their website. What do you guys think of the products? How do you feel about corporate shopping vs. small business owners? Leave some comments I would love to read your opinions.

BHLDN is one of my top favorite retailers that I love to stalk on the internet. Their vintage style infused with modern elements makes my heart melt. Their niche is wedding attire for the vintage bride. However, I came across multiple dresses I would die to have in my closet just for fun. They now have added wedding gifts to their website. I found myself wanting these products for my own home. Here are some of my recent favorite items.
I am a pinning queen. This past week I have noticed multiple people pin these amazing crystal light bulbs. I want a pair for my house! They scream vintage, unique, beautiful yet modern all at the same time. Hopefully, a psychic can look into her crystal ball and see these bulbs coming to my house soon!

Mismatch chairs at your kitchen table area makes your home look and feel unique. It gives off the feeling of style, personality and overall fun to your kitchen area. It can be a challenge to find the perfect chairs that look good together. The best way way to get this overall look is to buy in pairs. Get two chairs you love together and take them shopping with you around to different stores to see if the design among the other chairs will look appealing to the eye! I have found many chairs at thrift shops and garage sales that you can repaint or stain to your own personal taste. Have fun and happy hunting!

I definitely enjoy a good glass of wine, especially on a beautiful vineyard. However, most of the time I am drinking a glass on my lovely couch instead! Either way, it’s a great way to relax and wind down after a long day. Eventually over time, you are stuck with a lot of empty wine bottles. Most of the bottles have a great look/design to them and I feel bad just recycling them. But, I have discovered many creative ways to reuse the bottles instead and all ideas add unique beauty to your homes. What’s not to love?
