Hello Bench

I am obsessed with this bench by Nate Berkus for HSN. Sadly, it is sold out. I love the look of the legs and that deep grey velvet upholstery. I'm hoping they will bring it back and this time I will snatch it right up!

Hello Christmas Table

My husband and I are hosting Christmas in our home this year. I've been on the hunt for inspiration images for our table and here are some of my favorites.

1. 2. 3. 4.unknown 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.

My plan is to use lots of muted colors - silver, gold, burlap and add some pops of green and some pattern. Now it's just a matter of finding all the items that fit what I've got pictured in my head.

Hello Michelle Morgan Harrison

Obsessed does not even begin to describe my feelings toward Michelle Morgan Harrison's Christmas decor as featured in Connecticut Cottages and Homes December '08 issue.

What a great DIY idea for an advent calendar.

I am a huge fan of paperwhites during this time of year - although I must admit - the one's I purchased last year did not smell so great at all. Has anyone else ever had this issue with these flowers?

I purchased little houses similar to the ones above at Homegoods last year. I love the books wrapped in craft paper and ribbon.

Great silver wreath. I plan on making one Eddie Ross style with some green, gold and silver ornaments purchased from Target last year.

I love the simplicity of it all - the colors are subtle and not overdone, and the effect is absolutely beautiful.

I really like the look of the pale blue buffet and that ornate gold mirror.

I would love to come home to this everyday!

This home literally has it all for me - paperwhites, sage, burlap, greenery, and silver. I'm on a mission to create a Holiday look in my home that is as refreshing, soothing, and stunning as this. Last weekend I planted some paperwhite bulbs that I purchased at Home Depot - I'm hoping they will look as beautiful as hers by Christmas. I am on the hunt for the perfect sage satin ribbon, I have a burlap tree skirt that I basically just cut out of a big piece of burlap fabric I purchased at JoAnn's last year. All of that along with some greenery and I'm hoping to come close to this look.

What is your favorite thing to see in Holiday decor?

Hello Confetti Systems

It is Wedding Wednesday, and this week I am obsessing over Confetti System. How amazing would their work be for wedding decor?!

I love the way it adds a little bit of whimsy and glamour at the same time.
