Get the Look — Modern Christmas Tree

Get the Look — Modern Christmas Tree

It is theorized that our tradition of decorating Christmas trees started in the 16th century as a way to mimic the evergreens lit up amongst the starry night sky. Those first trees were decorated with small candles and later became more elaborate with the addition of homemade ornaments. We’ve definitely come a long way since then, but for those of us who celebrate Christmas, our sentiment for the Christmas tree remains the same. Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without it

Whats Cooking — Warm Chili For Cold Nights

As the weather becomes more gloomy my desire to sit inside, curl up under a blanket and watch Netflix all day grows increasingly strong. Honestly, I prefer to do these things even when the weather outside IS nice but that’s beside the point. The point is, when the weather is cold there is no greater meal than a warm bowl of chili. Whether you like a traditional beef chili or you’re more into a vegetarian chili, we’ve got it all for you

Refurbishing a Vintage Clock with Claire Staszak

Refurbishing a Vintage Clock with Claire Staszak

Clocks are pretty underrated in the realm of home décor. You never hear anyone mention how much they need a clock. But next time you see a working vintage clock – think twice, that baby may have some serious potential on your wall! Mid-century modern décor is quite on trend at the moment, if you haven’t noticed. This is excellent news, because clocks from that era are in abundance at vintage shops, grandparent’s basements and sites like Krrb. If you see a clock with lines you love, snatch it up and then proceed to refurbish it in these six easy steps

Living in a big city can be tough. The one place that I can always go to escape is my very small but cozy apartment. That’s why every year, around this time, I get excited about decorating. At first, it proved to be difficult because some of the more traditional holiday decorations take up more space than my bedroom. After doing some research and (getting a little creative!) I’ve come back with a few ideas on how to use every inch of a small space to its full holiday potential

If you are a more ambitious shopper you are welcomed to dive right on in, climb a ladder and submerge yourself into pounds of denim. We were also lucky enough to talk to Maresa about Dusty Rose and all things vintage
