So, in the spirit of flexibility and adaptability, I’m going to share a different kind of Style Story today. Specifically, my style story and what I’ve been doing with it lately.

Last night (I know, I’m so very current!), I had the pleasure of decorating a holiday vignette for Currey & Company’s Fall showroom event. Despite some frenzying delays and terribly yucky rainy weather, I managed to pull it off and quite nicely, if I do say so myself. With some help from my new favorite Fort Worth antique store (Carter Bowden Antiques), some local thrift shops, Michaels, and my friend’s magnolia tree, I created a holiday vignette around Currey’s beautiful lighting and furniture in a glamour meets old world meets modern color palette style.

Step one, raid your friend’s magnolia tree. Step two, painstakingly clean and spray paint a bag full of leaves. Step three, spray paint any other organic elements that you can find to decorate with. (I chose a couple dried gourds and tree branches.) Step four, hot glue your metallic magnolia leaves to the back side of a thick ribbon. Step five, run your hot-glued garland along a long table top or hang it from the post of a floor lamp. Step six, scour your local thrift stores to find various sized metal bowls. Finally, fill them with mercury glass ball ornaments and a few sprigs of greenery.

And there you have it! My Style Story lately. Making festive looks at an affordable price. Next time I catch a breath, we’ll get to that other Style Story.

    Dear Hilary

    Thanks to Pinterest I discovered you. I am one of these people who stopped repins. If I cannot get to source of the picture to link it to the original owner, I do not pin it.

    I am an architect/interior designer turned blogger as a creative outlet because my day job as an architect in a bank makes me lose contact with design. I am into creativity and empathic design.

    Anyway, I just want to say I adored your site: fresh, different, and gorgeous.

    You have got a new friend/follower!

    Hugs from Brazil
