A Simple Fall Dining Tablescape

Fall centerpiece with white pumpkins and hydrangeas

A couple of weeks ago the doorbell rang at our house and as I walked towards the door my heart started beating faster. You see, every day for what feels like forever I've been watching for our book to get here. THE book. The one that I worked on for a whole year and that I had yet to hold in my hands. … [Read more...]

Making Door Decisions

back door with samples

I'm so excited to share with you the next installment in my partnership with Window World and bring you along on my decision making process as we choose a new back door! You know, I've always dreamed of building a house. Well, I guess I should clarify. I've always dreamed of 'designing' a house. There is not even a single part of me that desires to do the actual 'building' portion of it. … [Read more...]

A Few of My Favorite Things

Best-DIY-Kitchen-Makeover

Hello At the Picket Fence friends, it's me, Julie from redheadcandecorate.com. I wasn't able to stop by last month due to a busy time at our house. Summer is supposed to be a relaxing time, but somehow it turns into a busy time for a lot of us. We went on a few impromptu mini-camping trips and the packing and unpacking had my head spinning. I'm finally beginning to settle down, and we are preparing for our teen girls to head back to high school. Maybe next year I will consider a … [Read more...]

The spiders are in their heydey, weaving webs all around the yard where they glisten in the hot August sun.   … [Read more...]

Turning an Appliance Garage Into a Coffee Station

Coffee station accessories

Coffee. I love it so. In fact, I had fully intended on sharing a coffee quote in this blog post but there were 1,585,763 of them on Pinterest and I couldn't narrow it down to just one that perfectly captured how I feel about this delicious, dark nectar. So, instead, I suppose I will show you how I dedicated a little section of my kitchen to the cup of joy and gladness that is pretty much the first thing I think about when I wake up in the morning....and what I look forward to having as a … [Read more...]

Barnsley Gardens and Shaw Floors

Barnsley Mansion Ruins

Two sisters who hadn't seen each other in two years had the amazing opportunity last week to not only finally get to be together but to do it in style! When Shaw Floors reached out to us recently to discuss a potential partnership we were absolutely thrilled for many reasons not the least of which was that it meant we would finally be together again. Reunited and it feels so good! We arrived as guests of Shaw at the beautiful Barnsley Garden Resort in Georgia and immediately fell in love … [Read more...]

Wood Chargers Turned Wall Art

Well, my friends, I've committed a major blogging faux pas. In my eagerness to complete a makeover I didn't take any 'before' photos. But, you have to understand. You see, I had been trying to find just the right thing to fill this wall in our bedroom. I knew what I didn't want but I just couldn't seem to find what I did want. I didn't want a mirror or paintings, I wanted something just a bit...different. And then one day as I was digging around on the clearance shelves of a discount … [Read more...]
