Glass X Candleholder

Fall is here and quickly going by. If you are doing any type of fall entertaining, you know how important it is to create a festive table scape. Nate Berkus has made that easy for us this season! His entire collection, featured exclusively at Target, is amazing. My favorite detail is how you can use most of the pieces in any of the four seasons. They are practical yet beautiful. Each piece was thoughtfully created to make a stylish statement for any party, gathering or even just for an everyday mantel. One of Nate’s personal favorite pieces is the glass X candleholder. “These taper candle holders give just enough elevation to mix with your smaller votives and hurricanes without obstructing views across the table.” – NB

An easy decorating tip for your table is to cut things from your yard. Whether it’s greenery or flowers, creating the perfect atmosphere is just a scissor cut away! I have the most beautiful orange berry tree in my yard that is perfect for the fall season. I placed the branches in simple clear vases, in different heights. So easy and FREE!

 

I usually opt for white dishes when entertaining. You can pair them with anything. Nate has the perfect white textured diamond dinnerware set. I love when dinnerware is textured. It brings interest and drama, even if it’s bright white.

Can we talk about this bowl?? This decorative leaf bowl can be used to display anything pretty. It’s my most favorite piece in this entire collection!

Thank you Nate Berkus for making fall entertaining so easy for us!

I wanted to give you a little glimpse into my living room. The Grove Bungalow is coming along! Projects are slowly being completed and rooms are beginning to look more look livable spaces and less like storage rooms. I love myself a good project but sometimes I would rather snap my fingers and see everything completed at once. Anyways, I will post more images as they come. Hope you are having a fantastic Wednesday!

BTW- don’t forget to enter this GIVEAWAY. And if you want to see more of Simply Grove, follow along over here on Instagram.

I am working on a bathroom reno right now. The homeowners are good friends of mine that live in a 1920’s farmhouse on the outskirts of Boise. It’s an amazing amazing home that deserves a super cool bathroom. Large hexagon tiles have been on my mind a lot lately! Specifically black tiles with white grout. There is something so classy yet modern about these tiles. And mixed with the traditional subway tile…heaven.

Some other bathroom trends that are taking over right now?

1. Round Mirrors. Forget the normal rectangular mirrors and opt for a round mirror. Ikea has my favorite option right now! Shop it here.

2. Dark grout. It’s everywhere right now! And who wouldn’t love dark grout?? It hides dirt!

3. Floating vanities. It’s like they are floating in the air. You can’t get more classy than this!

4. Brass Accents. I couldn’t leave this one out. Don’t think of brass as your grandmothers brass. Think of it as a rediscovered material that is back and is being done right this time.

Do you what to know what the easiest DIY is?? Painting a plain desk lamp in gold. It’s the simplest desk lamp DIY that there has ever been! I’ve done it 3 times with 3 different gold tones and each time it completely changed the lamp for good. Last week Elise gave us an amazing tripod lamp DIY that was painted in a pretty gold. It really is an easy solution for great design!

All you need is gold spray paint for this DIY. Make sure that you remove the bulb and cover up the cord, unless you want your cord to be gold. I always do a few coats. That way if it chips, it’s gold underneath. EASY CHEEZY!!!
