A Vintage-Inspired Home Office

My husband and I have a dream, and a very real goal, to buy a house that we can retire in. On my list of things I'd love for the house to include is an extra bedroom that I could turn into a beautiful home office. I envision a very Instagram-worthy desk, a place to store all of the PR samples I get, and some pretty tufted accent chairs: where I can enjoy coffee breaks with my husband, who luckily also works from home.

When I get inspiration from vintage home offices on the web, I'm most attracted to spaces with a touch of modern glam. My husband and I both like transitional decor - old meets new. For example, I'd pair a modern mirrored desk with one of these antique desk chairs. Seating isn't often the focal point of an office, but why shouldn't it be? We spend all day sitting in it, after all.


My husband and I take frequent breaks throughout the day, with a coffee break here and there and a lunch hour during which we watch one of our favorite shows togeth…

A Spooky, Chic Halloween Mantel


The holidays always make me wish I had a fireplace. A mantle is the perfect place for a festive vignette. Whether it's Halloween, Thanksgiving, or Christmas; you can pair a festive garland with pretty lights, and glowing candles. For Halloween, of course, you can mix in all sorts of pumpkins and holiday decor, like the black spiderweb fireplace cloth pictured above. It's the perfect backdrop for a spooky display! And priced at anywhere from $5 to $10, it's a very affordable way to make a big impact. Here are three fun ways to decorate your Halloween mantle using this spiderweb cloth.


Make it modern. If you have a white mantle, you can create modern black and white theme by pairing this spooky mantle cloth with glittery black Halloween accessories, like these modern Halloween mini tress, glitter pumpkins, and some bright orange pumpkins. Finish off the look with a fun Halloween banner.


Go for elegance. Halloween decor doesn't have to by casual. Give it an elegant upgrade with some decorative lanterns, pillar candles, and pretty pumpkins. Add in some metallics, like these beautiful gold pumpkin votive holders.


Keep it simple. This one is perfect if you have a faux fireplace or like to keep decor like candles, rather than an actual fire, inside your fireplace. The spiderweb mantle cloth looks great on its own or with just a few accessories, so it's the perfect way to showcase a bounty of pumpkin in all different colors, shapes, and sizes! This one is definitely my favorite.
