IMAGES BY KATIE ARMOUR TAYLOR FOR THE NEOTRAD
⋅TIMELESS COLOR You know I love traditional bones with bold color, and sometimes probably thanks to black and white images we don’t think of there being much color hundreds of years ago. Boy are we wrong, and this castle that Katie shot for her blog just proves it. Each shot gives me all kinds of feels. Every single one is breathtaking. Head on over to see all the goodness.
⋅BAR CART STYLING AND ART DIY It’s the season of celebration, and the gatherings call for great music, lighting, and libations. I’ve teamed up with Hallmark Gold Crown stores to show you what your bar cart needs to shine this holiday season and a quick and impactful DIY that is sure to draw guests to the drinks.
⋅TELEVISION SERIES Life doesn’t leave room for much TV these days, but I have managed to watch two things I’ve been both entertained and inspired by lately. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on Amazon Prime is so colorful and fun! It’s about a Jewish stay-at-home mom in New York in the 50’s who’s husband decides to leave her and she tries her hand at comedy. It’s quite entertaining! The Crown is back for a second season, and it’s as beautiful as ever. I’m only a few episodes in, but having some character development from last season has me drawn into the stories this go around.
⋅THE HOUSE OF MRS. BROADBENT I’ve been holding onto this gem of a video to show you for a while now. This lady it totally kooky, and I love it. Well, other than one racy bit – don’t watch this around children! Her home is filled with things she found in the trash or at a junk shop!
⋅JENNA LYONS Did you see her new home? Her mix is always one of my favorites! The bathroom is really, really good.
⋅ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS Gift receiving is a funny thing as we get older, isn’t it? The smaller things we really want/need we tend to get ourselves along the way, and our wish lists are left with mostly major items on them don’t get me wrong, I’ll be your BFF if you gift me a good candle or lotion! And for me they’re very practical things! What I’m wanting this Christmas? A Dyson stick and a Vitamix. Ha. Seriously though, the idea of products that make the day-to-day easier/more enjoyable are where it’s at!
What are you hoping Santa will bring you this year?
