Heart of the Country – Paul McCartney
If you don’t know already from last year’s posts about décor, plating, and desserts , Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday. Something in the combination of pumpkin pie and family just makes my heart skip a beat. Since I could not be more excited for the holiday this year, I rounded up a few décor ideas that I’m loving and plan to incorporate in my dinner.

I love making smoothies because they not only make you feel so refreshed afterward, but there’s also no wrong way to make them. Fresh fruit? Check. Fresh vegetables? Check. Blender? Check.
Since my favorite smoothies are strawberry and banana, that was just what I made. Here were my steps:
Step 1: Plan out all of your fruit. For me, it was strawberries and bananas.
Step 2: Chop.
Step 3: Throw in the blender, along with some vegetables. I added kale, as well as blueberry yogurt and orange juice to help with the blending process.
Step 4: Top with chia seeds for an added crunch and health boost.
Step 5: Drink up!
For a while, I thought of the bathroom — be it the master or a small powder room off of the hallway — as low on the priority list. I couldn’t help but place rooms like the kitchen or items like my bed much higher on the list than my bathroom. But the second I began searching Pinterest for bathroom inspiration and design ideas, I instantly changed my mind. There’s nothing quite as relaxing and refreshing as bathing in a hotel, I’ve concluded that renovating and designing a bathroom should certainly not be overlooked. While I love the look of clean, white tile and matching white towel sets, I’m also attracted to bright tiles and loud wallpapers. In my opinion, the bathroom is a room to experiment with and have fun designing! After all, we’re often in our bathrooms when getting ready, so a little color here and there may provide some much-needed inspiration, especially when getting dressed.
When and if you don’t have the space to store all of your clothes, there are so many great options to make the most out of your design aesthetic, and your storage needs. Take the photos below – all of them showcase how you can have a beautiful bedroom and utilize your clothing as stylistic accents.

Delicious mid-week treat.
Great brunch with a friend spent catching up.

Loved being back home in LA for a weekend.
What can I say, I have these moments where all I want to do is decorate with my item of the moment. Right now, it’s copper, especially in the form of pots.
