Merry & Bright







I am crazy about holiday decorations that capture the joy and happiness of the season! Is there a better way than with COLOR?! Thanks to photograher Rett Peek, today we are revisiting the beautiful home of Beverly Wells, who worked with her daughter (and our favorite) Tobi Fairley to put a cheerful spin on holiday decor. The garland on the mantel is dazzling, I love all the different ornaments and sea of color! Same goes for the tabletop tree...so adorable! Visit Tobi's blog to read more about this space!

The pretty packages under their tree are only reminding me that I need to finish up my wrapping! But before I do, I need to announce the winner of Tobi's pillow giveaway!


Congrats, Erin! And to everyone else, I wish you the most wonderful, joy-filled holiday weekend! Safe travels to those of you off visiting loved ones near or far! As for Chris and me, we're staying put here in Minneapolis and are very much looking forward to our first Christmas as a married couple! :)

Benjie Jones












Every single room in this enchanting Atlanta home belonging to designer Benjie Jones gets a holiday touch! We're talking live trees in the kitchen and dining room, wreaths and a big wooden Santa in the master bedroom and bathroom, and leftover sprigs of evergreen tucked behind paintings everywhere. Keeping things artistic but measured, and fun without being too serious is actually the designer's everyday decorating approach. I'd love to see how his home looks the rest of the year, wouldn't you?? The robin’s egg-blue walls are gorgeous. I especially love it in the kitchen as a backdrop to the dinnerware and bottles. See more great photos by Erica George Dines and read all about the whimsical space over at Atlanta Home & Lifestyles!

Sita Montgomery












Can't you just tell that Sita Montgomery of The Family Room Design Studio had a ball decorating her Utah home?? The kitchen underwent a huge transformation over the summer. To give the space a fresh and bright feeling, she had the cabinets painted a soft, creamy off-white. I loooove how it turned out! The delightful family room has the same happy vibe of the kitchen...I am loving bursts of fresh color! Sita has lots more great photos of her home taken by Paige Davis over at her blog, so head on over to finish the tour. And if you're lucky enough to live in Utah and are looking for some design help, definitely look her up!

Sita was gracious enough to provide us with the source list below. If you're wondering about anything else, just ask!

Tobi Fairley Giveaway!!


I'm back from our mini-vacation from NYC! What a crazy time, there were sooo many people out there this weekend. But the holiday spirit was in high gear and I loved every minute! We're now back in the swing of things here though. (Trying our best anyway, it's always hard this close to Christmas, isn't it?)

I'm super excited to be starting off the week with a giveaway courtesy of one of my favorite designers: Tobi Fairley! Tobi recently launched her own collection featuring fabulous, colorful throw pillows, really great fabric, and even her own lighting! I'm thrilled that Tobi is generously giving one lucky reader a fabulous set of 2 - 24" pillows featuring her vivid Marrakech fabric in Rumba Pool. Don't you love the yummy turquoise and orange combo and the bold geometric print?? The pair would add the perfect amount of spice to any room!
