There’s something about this fabric line that is so lovely and sweet — whether you use it to reupolhster an old chair, make pillows for the guest room or a little girl’s dress — it’s a simple, whimsical print that for me evokes day dreaming of far off lands.
The dark fuchsia below is my favorite. Check out the entire Harlequin line at Tree House Interiors.

When I was a 12 or so, my cousin hand made stockings for each member in the family. I can’t think of a more personal and lovely gift to give during the holiday season! Mismatched, quilted, knitted, refashioned — what a neat vintage Christmas feel to have a series of handmade stockings hanging from the fireplace.
Stockings above by Made and the garland of stockings below found at Martha Stewart Living. The Furbish Theory on Etsy has designed these beautiful stockings (bottom of collage) out of simple, organic materials.
I’ve pulled together inspiration for your own handmade stockings using every kind of material you can think of. Don’t have the time to make stockings from scratch? Embellish store bought ones with buttons, broaches, lace or felt cut outs.
Get the kids involved too — it will be a keepsake they hold on to for a lifetime. I still cherish my handmade stocking and honor it as a special gift by hanging it up each Christmas! MUCH more inspiration after the jump. Read more »

Inspired by Susan Sergant’s affection for very bright colors (this is one of her patterns above), here are a few cheery room ideas that make even the dreariest of fall days a little brighter. I am not usually so bold as to paint an entire room lime green — but I must admit I’ll be stealing more than a few of these ideas for the house!
This fall, muted colors ‘pale’ in comparison to bright statement choices (I couldn’t help myself) — bold colors abound this season for the wardrobe, throughout party themes and definitely in home decor. If you’re not ready to go all in, try a few accent pieces here or there in a bright and bold hue. How great are the yellow dining room chairs in Jonathan Adler’s design (above) and the brilliantly pink foot stools (next page)?
Nine more inspiring rooms full of color to go! As well as accent pieces (such as bedding and throw pillows) that leave a similar — yet not so permanent — effect. Read more »
