How Often Do You Update Your Bedding?

It wasn’t until just the other day – you know, since we’ve been homebound for going on five days thanks to the snowpocalypse – when I stumbled upon this utterly gorgeous, yet surprisingly simple white pom pom fringe bedding, that I realized I hadn’t changed the “look” of our master bedroom bedding in years.

We’ve had the same white pintuck West Elm duvet since we were married, and though I love it, it’s starting to look a bit lackluster, and well, plain. And while I love plain-ish when it comes to our bedding — seriously, you’d be amazed at how quickly you’ll fall in love with white bedding; it can always be bleached — even white fabric gets tired after the millionth wash. My devotion to white bedding is pretty unwavering, but it may be time for a new set.

(By the way → 7 tips for creating the perfect white bedroom.)

It got me thinking: how often do you update your bedding? Do you have different sets for different seasons? Do you switch out the throw pillows and blankets with new seasons? Do you mix in patterns and colors?

Or do you splurge and buy yourself a new bed set every few years? How do you decide it’s time for a new bedding set? And why do we neglect our poor beds, though we’ll happily splurge on a new outfit for events and the like?

And most importantly, do you love this pom pom fringe bedding as much as I do? And should I go for it? I’m thinking my bed deserves a little TLC right about now.

How to Transition Your Décor From the Holidays to New Year’s Eve

I was paid by Lowe’s as a part of this campaign. Thank you so much for supporting the sponsors that make Glitter, Inc. possible!

We decorated our living room for the holidays, and I am so excited to share it with you!

Since moving into our new house, and after a bit of debate, painting our brick fireplace white, the fireplace and mantle has become the focal point of our living room. Because our living room is so white, I wanted to bring in a bit of warmth, with a clean, rustic feel for the holiday season.

There is a huge variety of  holiday décor available at Lowe’s, and I honestly had the hardest time narrowing down my picks. The holiday living candles and ornaments, the holiday signs, the stockings, even the occasion wrapping paper was gorgeous.

I decided to bring in elements from nature to really bring the look to life. Foraging for greenery was so much fun with Scarlett, though she mostly handed me dirt and twigs. I love involving her in all of the fun holiday traditions, including the decorating itself, even at an early age.

Take a look at how we decorated our living room and how we transitioned the décor for the holiday season, and be sure to let me know what you think in the comments and on social media (@glitterinclexi)!

 

How to Transition Your Décor From the Holidays to New Year’s Eve:

As for our living room décor, the challenge was finding and using pieces to create a holiday look that could work in two ways: one for the holidays and one for the New Year. The beauty of so many of the holiday décor products at Lowe’s was that they really could be pulled into both holiday and new year displays; which is great, because really, who wants to have to buy a whole new set of décor for a holidays just days apart? I chose a mostly neutral palette with metallics sprinkled in (gold, silver, and copper) … yep, I’m a total creature of habit; a.k.a., glitter is my fave.

Hubby found these little pinecones that look like rosebuds and as you may have caught on Snapchat → glitterinclexi or my Instagram Story, I went spray paint crazy and covered them in gold spray paint. They were the perfect touch.

The holiday living candles and candle holders, votives, snowflake Christmas stockings, and holiday living ball ornaments were all gorgeous find from Lowe’s.

We set up a little hot chocolate station, because no holiday gathering is complete without hot chocolate. (You can see how we upgrade instant hot cocoa here.)

I will forever be a fan of the giant campfire marshmallows.

We also set up a cozy spot to lounge.

And of course, presents. I snagged two rolls of that gold glitter occasion wrapping paper because I loved it so much.

Isn’t that little porcupine ornament the cutest?

To transition the space for New Year’s Eve, we took down some of the more traditionally “holiday” elements like the stockings and presents, and added a few fun celebratory New Year’s Eve pieces, like a clock, disco balls, stars, and a New Year sign.

First up was a fun and fast DIY.

Using numbers from either a craft store or house numbers from Lowe’s, spray-paint those gold, glue a twine knot to the back of each number, hammer four nails into the front of your board, and once the glue is dry, hang your 2-0-1-7 numbers onto your board. The best part about this simple DIY is that you can easily buy a new number to change up the year. (I bought a number “8” for next year as well.)

How cute is that?

 

Of course, in true New Year’s fashion, there had to be stars. These paper door hanger stars from Lowe’s were one of my favorite purchases and I’m already imagining other ways to use them. I just replaced my stockings with the stars on the fireplace mantle stocking hooks.

The more sparkles and disco balls, the better.

We replaced the hot chocolate setup with a champagne station to toast the new year.

The “Cheers” sign, gold tray, and coasters were all from Lowe’s.

I’m not sure which setup I adore more. I love that the New Year’s space had such a glamorous twist, while still feeling cozy and warm, but when I first decorated for the holidays it really felt like THE HOLIDAYS, and I love that excitement leading up to all of the festivities.

Eugenia Zoloto’s Modern Art Paper Cuttings

The other day I fell down the Instagram black hole and stumbled upon Eugenia Zoloto’s account full of her modern art paper cuttings. Her Instagram account is chock full of incredible handmade art paper cuttings, everything from delicate paper butterflies to whimsical fairies to life-size paper cut dresses.

The young Ukrainian artist sells her gorgeous work in an Etsy shop, ArtHeartsShop. I love the magnolia branch silhouette, the blossom heart, and the floral heart. These would look incredible in a floating frame on a gallery wall by adding texture and depth, plus just a bit of whimsy.

How to Upgrade Your Front Door: Modern Door Knockers

Little by little we’re sprucing up our new (old) house, and one of the things we’ve started focusing on is curb appeal. It’s amazing what things like a new mailbox, above-the-garage lanterns, and a little landscaping (i.e., we planted a few wildflowers around our entryway this summer) can do for a home. Right now I have my sights set on our front door. We already painted our formerly light blue door a glossy black, and I’m looking for the perfect way to accessorize. Because yes, you can accessorize your front door! With a fresh set of hardware and a funky door knocker, that’s how. A door knocker in particular adds so much character to a home before you’ve even stepped inside. Door knockers are like jewelry for your door. And did you know there were some really cool door knockers on the market?

Anthropologie always has quirky and adorable door knockers in their home section and Amazon also happens to have a surprisingly good selection of modern and vintage-inspired door knockers. I mean, how can your guests not feel welcomed by this brass pineapple door knocker? And these monogram door knockers are so different and yet still somehow classic. Fancy a lobster? A fox? A pinecone?

A Modern Rustic Farmhouse in Indiana

Sometimes, just for fun, I scroll through pricey real estate listings. I mean, a girl can dream, right? When I stumbled across this modern rustic farmhouse in Indiana I most definitely did a double-take. It’s actually a new build with plenty of rustic inspiration, and it’s done oh so well. The farmhouse was built on 18 acres, including rows of peach and apple trees. How charming is that?

And of course, they had me at the wraparound porch.
