HOME ROOM: Freshening the Living Room

Mohawk Carpet Living Room Decor via homework (15)I have a bad case of the organizing and freshening bug. I’ve been moving things around, decluttering and I’m eager to start on some home décor projects. I have loads of ideas but first on my list was our living room. I was lucky enough to receive a new SmartStrand Forever Clean bound carpet from Mohawk and it was just the inspiration I needed to do some additional freshening to the room.

CELEBRATIONS: A Touch of Fall from my Home



A touch of fall from my home - fall vignettes via homework | carolynshomework.com


These are just some snippets of fall from some of my projects or the styling for some of my projects. I love fall and when I went through my photos recently, I put together some of my favorite. Not everyday has to include a complicated craft or diy project to keep me inspired. Sometimes it’s something as simple as some peppercorns or moss.

CELEBRATIONS: Great Halloween Ideas from Dollar Store Items



I love the Dollar Store. Any dollar store; the 99 cent store, 99 cent plus, the dollar store, dollar tree or any good clearance aisle. These stores are especially great during the holidays. And Halloween brings out the best in dollar decorating. Because who wants to spend a lot of money on Halloween décor. I mean it’s fun but it’s not going to stay up for very long. I’ve rounded up some of the very best dollar store Halloween ideas. These bloggers have really raised the bar with their spooky fun.

Etceteras: A Little Eucalyptus

7-7

Every season I change up the décor on my kitchen hutch. I usually introduce a seasonal element or color depending on my mood. Sadly, this summer is getting away from me. Any grand plans for a fresh look with shells, starfish or other summer décor is slowly slipping away.

Celebrations: The Owls Have Landed {Halloween Décor}

Be My Guest: town and country living

Friends ~ I’m out of town for a few days and have some great guests lined up to share some wonderful creativity with you. Today, please welcome Jennifer from Town and Country Living.



Hello Everyone! My name is Jennifer and I blog over at Town and Country Living. I'm so thrilled to be guest posting here at Homework! I live in a circa 1875 farmhouse and love the casual approach that farmhouse decorating brings to our busy world. Today, I want to share with you a peek into my home with its simple and easy style.

French VignettePlants play a big role in my home and plant choice is critical to lending the right casual touch. Tropical plants look more exotic while a simple Ivy is better for a cottage look. White bead board makes a great farmhouse backdrop for any vignette!

Etceteras: shells, shells, shells

Are you as excited about summer as I am? And once the summer bug hits, do you break out the shells, coral and starfish? I live near the coast, so I’m not sure if the shell mania is as big a deal in other parts of the world. I do know that there is plenty of beachy, shell inspiration on blogs, Pinterest and online publications. And since I love all things beach and coastal related, I thought I’d do a little shell round up to share.

Etceteras: birch branches and boxwood

The Christmas décor is slowly coming down and getting tucked away until next year. I still want some winter décor around the house and after a season of glitter, I’m craving some natural elements.
