Foyer Update: Choosing a Paint Color

The foyer chest have been painted and they look awesome! So, the next thing on my to do list was to paint the foyer. I mulled over paint swatches for several days and came up with zilch. Since paint was going to play a major role in this project, I needed to find the perfect paint color ASAP! So I decided to go in search of some paintspiration. ( Don't laugh I just made that word up and it will be in the dictionary one day!) So I jumped into my Tucson and headed to the Home Depot.  I immediately went to the paint section. I started pulling out paint chips one by one. Nope, nope, nope, that's not the color, so I kept pulling. Low and behold I pulled out this Amazing color. Bare with me, the theme song from "Hawaii five 0" is playing in my head. And I hear Steve McGarrett saying, "Book him Danno." Okay, I've kept you in suspense long enough. The name of the color is Island Oasis by Behr. And it sums up the style that I am creating in our home. Is that a coincidence or what? I love the island beachy feel of this color, and I can't wait to share the reveal.                           
               

Paint colors look different on monitors. Paint chips and samples give a true representation of the color.
 

  
 
  Just in case you're wondering, I used the paint and primer in one and it turned out Great!
  Gotta run I have several things to do before the big reveal.

***I don't know anyone at the Behr Corporation. However, I have been using their paint for the past 15 years and I love it!

My Fall Table

There are only nine days left until Thanksgiving. And I am so excited because I get to share it with close friends and family. By the way, the grand baby will be here too! Yay! Ok, back to the post.

My Fall Table turned out quite lovely if I must say so myself. This year instead of using a table cloth, I used a variety of fabric samples swatches to cover the table. So, what do you think? I love all the different colors patterns and textures, and they actually play off each other nicely. And I am hoping the fabric sample table cover will be a great conversation starter as well. I will let you know how it goes.









Spode China and pumpkins from the Dollar Tree who knew?


Initially the table had two fall wreaths and two lanterns. You can see it here. But I had to remove one of each to make room for the table settings.




You know how I love animal print. I think every room needs a little touch of it. How about you?



Are you ready for the Thanksgiving Holiday? Thanks for stopping by, Lory

Easy Last Minute Ideas For Fall

The count down has begun! Can you believe there are only 8 days left until the turkey is carved? So, today I figured I would share some easy last minute ideas to get you through Fall/Thanksgiving Holiday. So let's get started!


These diy wreaths may look quite intimidating but on the contrary they aren't at all. To get this look you will need a grapevine wreath, garland of your choice, floral wire and ribbon. Simply take the garland and place it around the wreath. Once the garland is in place attach it to the wreath using floral wire. Next, add the bow and hang the wreath. Project complete! Your family and friends will be impressed. For best results make sure that the garland is long enough to cover the entire circumference of the wreath.


If the wreath above is still a bit much, why not give this wreath a try? The only things needed are a grapevine wreath and ribbon of your choice. Now make a big bow and attach it to the wreath. Voila! I used a pipe cleaner/chenille stem to att…

How I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30

I am over the super excited to bring you one of several posts revealing how I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30.Yes,you heard me right. And I must say it looks quite fabulous, but before the reveal can take place, we have to go through the process. Sorry!!! So, keep reading to find out how I transformed the space for so little. Each year I try to incorporate creative ways to decorate my home on an extremely tight budget, and this year was no exception. But in order to get the ball rolling on this project, I needed some inspiration. Well, my inspiration came via a promise I made to my grand baby. I promised her that Zsa Zsa(that's me) would decorate a Christmas tree she would love. However, with that being said, I also knew the design/decor had to be whimsical and playful enough for her. But it also had to appeal to the adults in the family as well.(mainly me) So, I put my design thinking cap on and came up with a plan, that I thought would appeal to both parties…
