Hello there! Happy Halloween to you all.
In honor of the day, I thought I’d share a few room design that are no where near spooky. In fact, all of these black and orange spaces are utterly stunning, beautifully accessorized and truly inspiring.
Enjoy the day and I’ll see you back here tomorrow! Yikes…I can’t believe it’s November already!
And this next image has to be my favorite. I would have never thought that orange lampshades could look so good.

Sometimes I think my creativity is a curse because I rarely can look at an item and think it’s perfect the way it is. More times than not I look at something and imagine how I could make it better, cuter or more decorative.
Take these small wood bowls I saw at HomeGoods. I thought about all the different food items that could be served in these bowls and even thought about how cute they’d be on a vanity holding jewelry. They were adorable just like they were but I imagined them being even cuter.

The other day I popped into Paper Source to pick up some of the wood leaves they sell for a gift wrapping project. As I usually do when I go to Paper Source, I spent some time wandering around checking out all the cool stuff they have.
Most of you probably think of Paper Source as just a gift wrapping and packaging supply store but I’m here to tell you they have so many other cool items.
As I wandered around the store I kept coming across items I thought would work great as part of a Thanksgiving table setting. I was so inspired I decided to pull together an inspiration board showing you how I’d use gift wrap, gift items and crafting supplies to set a table.
Paper Source inspired Thanksgiving table setting:
I love using wrapping paper as a table runner and this Multi Stem Flower Wrapping Paper is the perfect color and pattern for a festive Thanksgiving table.
This Burlap Wreath Kit will make a pretty centerpiece and you’ll get to do a little crafting when you make it. Add a glass hurricane in the center to great a beautiful candle centerpiece.
I fell in love with these Wooden Fall Leaves when I saw them on-line and after seeing them in person I think they’d make great coasters for your fall table. Coat each leave with Mod Podge to seal the surface.
Every beautiful table needs pretty candle holders. The Peony and Rose Vanilla Candle in this chic gold chevron glass jar will add an elegant touch to your table.
Another great use for wrapping paper is to cut it into squares and use it as a place mat alternative. This Thick Cherry Wood Paper is ideal to use on the table and adds a rustic touch to the decor.
Taking a color cue from the paper runner, these Mint Patterned Napkins are the perfect color and pattern accent against the gold and brown elements on the table.
To make a simple napkin ring for your table just wrap one of these Thanksgiving Scallop Oval Stickers around each rolled napkins on the table.
So what do you think of this fun tablescape? Paper Source has a ton of great product so the next time you’re in the store take a look around and see what you can create.
this is not a sponsored post, just sharing products I love and how my crazy creative brain works

Have you ever walked into someone’s kitchen or toured a model home kitchen and felt like the kitchen island was nothing more than a big box that took up space in the center of the room?
I was in a kitchen recently and the island stood our like an eyesore. There were no design details on the island and the only real function the island served was for food prep.
When you think about it, a kitchen island is basically a big rectangle or square box, sometimes with functional elements built-in and other times not. It can be a free-floating, movable element or a built-in design.
The kitchen I was in got me thinking about creative way to add style and function to a large kitchen island so today I want to highlight a few design and architectural ideas to give a plain island style and personality.
