Maybe it's the countless hours I've spent on Pinterest or the extreme binge watching of 'Fixer Upper' but home design is on my mind.... I live for great before-and-afters, ranch, farmhouse and modern styled homes.
A homestyle that can incorporate all of these trends is painted brick. It is something that has been on trend for a while but I am starting to hop on the fan bandwagon. When done right it can make or break a home. I've included some of my favorite brick painted homes below. I would love to see this trend incorporated everywhere. It's just that dreamy.

The holiday season is in full swing! And although we are in the process of moving in the beginning of 2019 we are still decorating our space here and there.
One way we have incorporated this physical holiday joy is by focusing on our mantle decor. Mantle decoration is something that I absolutely swoon over every holiday season and I love the way it looks in all homes.
Everyone has their own unique style and love the way you can incorporate that into your space during the holiday seasons. I usually gravitate towards the signature wood and green tones with white stockings which for me, always convey a homely environment. Flocked trees, Reindeer figurines and long garlands also seem to be all the rage during this holiday season. Here are some of my favorite mantle decorations!

I think color has a lot to do with the mood in your home. I love the idea of good colors for a great mood. I have made the mistake to decorate in all black and whites before and although that may work for others, it didn't work for me. I could tell my mood was changing and the space I was living in wasn't at all inviting. I love the idea of various color schemes within the neutral and vivid color palettes.
Here I am sharing some of my favorite palette styles and the inspiration behind them:
Bright Pops of Color Palettes:
Bright Pops of Color Ideas:
I love the concept of a bright pop of color. Color can make or break a space and all of these inspirational photos are doing it right. The pops of green, red, orange and bright white are all complementary colors to a blank palette and can really lighten up a room. I love the idea of a bold furniture color as in the first photo or even a unexpected color amongst a hidden backsplash. Even a whole wall can be painted to juxtapose a whole room and the accessories can really be an accent piece.
Neutral Colors Palettes:
Neutral Color Ideas:
Neutral colors, I think can do really great in any space to bring life and light. I like the simplicity of great nude tones that can go a long ways accessory-wise. What I love about neutral is the fact that it doesn't need to be solely beige but warm tones too. The palette shown above is a perfect example of what kind of colors neutrals include.
Farmhouse Color Palettes:
Farmhouse Color Ideas:
I love these styles that the farmhouse trend brings. Farmhouse style can easily be defined as something that is old but new. Many of the styles use older recycled material and turn it into new. Even if its and old barn yard door, an old wooden bench, and even the backing of a garage. Everything can be useful when there is a purpose for it. The colors are also very similar to neutral for the tones and it is important to when using these colors to mix and match to keep it minimalistic.
