Taking The Next Step

I knew I needed to take the next step in my blogging & content creating, but I couldn’t figure out exactly what that looked like. My husband must have been reading my mind when he suggested that I take over our office in order to create more possibilities for my business. He is the biggest supporter of my dreams. I am one lucky lady! After that conversation, I spent the next few weeks dreaming up what is now my beauty room! This space has already been so great for my blog & my creativity. I can’t wait to see all the possibilities that arise because of this dreamy space.

My Secret Garden

Seeing as though my brand’s name is Felix & Flora, I wanted this room to feel like a garden. My own secret garden. I do have some real plants, like the ones hanging in these gorgeous pots we got from our wedding registry, but I also added some faux garlands for more texture. The wisteria that frames the window reminds me of my trip to Charleston which gave me so much inspiration for this room. Another huge source of inspiration for me was my trip to Italy. I loved seeing how flowers, vines, & greenery dressed every nook & cranny. Therefore, I mixed a greenery garland with a white dogwood bloom garland to dress my wardrobe. I love how dreamy these garlands make the entire room feel. It’s amazing how being surrounded by flowers brings me so much joy.

Statement Pieces

The two biggest purchases necessary to complete my beauty room were my large mirror & my wooden wardrobe. I researched these pieces for quite some time searching for the best deals. My mirror was a must-have item so that I could share more try-ons & ootd pics more regularly. I found some really great offers on Wayfair & ended up purchasing mine during their semi-annual sale which saved me quite a bit of money. This wardrobe was perfect for my beauty room not only because of it’s amazing price, but for how sturdy it is. I love that it’s made of wood rather than metal giving it a more cozy vibe. The shelves on the side are great for extra storage as well as displaying some of my favorite accessories.

Other great pieces I’ve added to this room are my sheer curtains. They still let a lot of natural light in which I love & tie up in a bow for a romantic & feminine touch. My white floating shelf is now home to some of my daily beauty products, but it’s also great for shooting shelfies. I added some new art to the room like this whimsical blue & white piece that is currently on sale! Finding creative ways to hang & display things added my own personal touch on this room. It’s so me & I love love love it!

Room To Grow

This room is “finished” for now, but I already have ideas for the future! I want to paint the long wooden cubes white & cover the top with a really lovely botanical print like this one. Also, I want to add more plants to the room. There can never be enough! I’m really picky about rugs, but when I find the right one, I think a nice rug with navy accents in it & an emerald green pouf chair would go perfectly in my secret garden in the future.

DIY Christmas Garland

DIY Christmas Garland

Hello Everyone!

You should know by now, that I love a good garland, & it doesn’t get any better than having a live green one this time of year! This is my second year in a row to make one of these beauties, & with a little time & creativity, you can too! This DIY Christmas garland is sure to bring your house feel more like home.

Items Needed To Make Your DIY Christmas Garland:

A large pile of branches (We always get ours when we get our Christmas tree, from the clippings…for free!)

Green paddle wire

Pruning shears

DIY Christmas Garland

Once you have all of your supplies, I recommend going through each branch & trimming them to make long, narrow pieces. I also like to choose the corner pieces, which I like to hang down lower than the rest of the garland. After you’ve trimmed each piece, now all you have to do is put them together by placing branches together & securing them in place with the wire. This is the part that takes the most time, just because it’s all trial & error. Play with different branches to see what looks best, & add wire to secure heavier pieces. Keep messing with it until it’s just right.

To hang, I made & attached loops from the wire on five spots along the garland for it to be hung on nails (or command hooks) on the wall. It’s fairly easy to hang & lasts well.

Adding the finishing touches is the best part! This year, we simply placed a cheerful “Merry Christmas” garland in its midst, but last year we hung small star ornaments from the branches. You could also string lights in it or add bows to it, literally whatever fits your home best.

Do you love garlands as much as I do? Will you be putting one up in your home this year?

DIY Pinecone Garland

Hello Everyone!

I’ve lived in the same little house in RVA for about a year & a half now, & one of my favorite things about it is the mini forest in the backyard: trees, flowers, vines, & in the fall…so many pinecones! Last year, I gathered up a large collection of them to help decorate my house for the season. I made a very simple & festive pinecone garland, to hang on the hutch in my living room.

This year, I gathered another round of pinecones, only this time, I helped my friend, Melissa make one for her house.

To make this lovely fall decor, you need the following:

30-60 Pinecones (depending on how long you want it to be)

Twine

Scissors

*Optional: Hot Cider & Netflix

All you have to do is measure out how long you want your garland to be with the twine, leaving a few extra inches at the end for hanging purposes. Lay it flat, then cut several pieces of twine about 6 inches long. These smaller pieces will then wrap around the base of the pinecone, & attach to the long anchor piece. When wrapping the smaller twine around the pinecone, tie it in a double knot, then double knot that onto the anchor. Repeat this with all of the pinecones, making sure to slide the knots on the anchor as close together as possible to allow the pinecones to look clustered.

A couple cups of cider later, & you’re done! It’s so simple! What a fun way to add a natural fall touch to your home.
