Snow White Tablescape

Remember last week when I shared an easy Winter centerpiece using leftover greenery from Christmas? Well, today I’m going to show you how I use that same centerpiece and designed a snow white tablescape around it. Most fresh greenery lasts about two weeks, so if you need to freshen a few boughs you can. I just snip some new branches off pine trees in my back yard when mine are starting to look a little dull. Because I’m surrounded by snowy mountains in Utah, I wanted to create a tablescape…

Winter Textiles

I live in an old drafty farmhouse. Because the original part of the home was built in the early part of the Twentieth Century, the house was constructed with lathe and plaster walls on the interior and 18″ of concrete and rocks on the exterior. The insulation isn’t great, and the ventilation is worse. Basically, it’s very cold in the Winter, and I use a lot of Winter textiles to keep warm.

When you’re taking down Christmas decorations, keep the greenery around a little longer, if you can. The scents of…

I love living in our old farmhouse. Sometimes I find myself marveling at some of the little details that you don’t find in modern houses. Some are for practical reasons, like the wall cutout that goes up the stairs for heating. Others are just decorative, though, like the well-designed hallway that joins the kitchen to the dining room. This hallways is intimate with lower ceilings and wall projections that create small nooks for built-ins. It almost feels like you’re being embraced as you walk down it. It’s not showy or…

Stoneware Crocks

My latest obsession is stoneware. I recently started collecting it for our future mountain house. I especially love the stoneware crocks used for food storage from Hearth & Hand. Not only are they pretty, but they’re functional and work with any style. I’ve styled them with other pantry items in the built-in shelves of our farmhouse. I especially love how the scalloped detail contrasts with the simple functional look of the stoneware crocks. What’s so great about this collection is that you can mix and match it with anything. I’ve…
