    Serve it Up: Dream Kitchen

      Serve it Up: Dream Kitchen by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring a tea cup If you’ve followed along with any of my home decor inspiration posts, you’ll know that I have a thing for kitchens. I had a post back in the spring all about french country kitchen styles so you know I like to dream about my dream kitchen. Whenever Polyvore does home decor challenges, I like to take part because it’s fun to imagine how you would style or decorate a room and put together whatever you want. So when Polyvore had a dream kitchen challenge, I had to take part naturally! I love the white cabinets in this kitchen for…

    Make Your Home Bloom

      Make Your Home Bloom by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring spring home decor I recently wrote a post all about home floral arrangement inspiration via Pinterest so it seems like a good time to share this set I created on Polyvore for “Make Your Home Bloom”. I chose a very monochromatic home set with black, white, and greys, which can feel a bit cold, but I’m using the florals to add warmth and color to the room. Some small plants for the windowsill such as orchids are perfect for some color and a bit of a tropical feel. A flower arrangement of tightly packed flowers is perfect for a coffee table. I’m also…

    Decorate with Planters

      Decorate with Planters by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring plastic planters My favorite thing about spring is all the new and fresh flowers. Fresh blooms can brighten your day with their sheer beauty and beautiful fragrance. Planters are a great way to house your plants and flowers, especially the larger variety, and they’re also decorative pieces. In the above set from Polyvore, I’ve rounded up some planters that I think would make great decor pieces depending on the look you’re going for. My favorite are the blue & white ones because lately I’ve been on a total blue & white kick. I may or may not have spent some time online recently…

    Cozy Cabin Style

      Cozy Cabin Style by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring Anthropologie The weather here lately has stayed true to its crazy up and down pattern this year. One day it’s spring like and the next we’re back to below freezing temperatures. Since we’re not in the clear for spring yet, I’ll continue to post some winter things. I’ve never stayed in a cabin before but if I did I would want to stay in a cabin that was nice and cozy but with some luxuries too. I’m not a “roughing it” kind of girl. My cabin would need a fireplace or two. It would also have a rustic and warm feel it. Nothing…

    Color Challenge: Pumpkin and Burgundy

      Color Challenge: Pumpkin and Burgundy by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring a flower bouquet Pumpkin and burgundy are often associated with fall. I did put this set together 2 months ago when it was still fall, but not one to follow all style rules I think these colors are perfect for winter as well. Why? Because they exude a sense of warmth, which is always nice when the temperatures outside are frigid. In this color challenge on Polyvore, I put together a little living room set with a burgundy two piece loveseat and a pair of white throw pillows with an embroidered tree print featuring a beautiful pumpkin color. The gold framed…

    Color Challenge: Gray & Peach

      Color Challenge: Gray & Peach by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring peach throw pillows Peach is not one of my favorite colors. It’s not that I dislike the color, but it’s not a shade I would go out of my way to pick. So when Polyvore had a home decor challenge using Gray & Peach, I was a little unsure of what I would put together seeing as how I don’t think I’d put peach in my own home decor color palette. Nonetheless, I wanted to challenge myself and I actually like what I put together for this bedroom set. I decided not to go too heavy on the grays and peaches. I…

    Color Challenge: Pretty Pastels

      Color Challenge: Pretty Pastels by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring cotton kitchen towels I love pastels so when Polyvore had a pastel color challenge, I had to take part. I decided to use a kitchen for my set and fill it with pastel accents in the form of flowers and dish-ware. These dinner plates are so pretty and scream summer to me. How pretty would these be at an outdoor dinner party? I love this striped blue and white mug with gold base and handle. Something about this mug makes me think of Alice in Wonderland for some reason and has a cute, whimsical feel to it. The pastel set of bowls are…

    Green Home Styling

      Green Day by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring a folding screen I love putting together home decor sets on Polyvore  because it’s always fun to imagine what my future dream home or homes will look like. Polyvore had a home decor challenge involving green decor, which works for me since it’s my favorite color. ***** For this challenge, I chose the bedroom as my room of choice. I  chose a spacious bedroom with green walls and white trim. I love that this room has a ton of natural light and looks so open with its high ceilings. The bedding has touches of green with the duvet and throw pillows. The clock may be…

    Dream Beach House

      Dream Beach House by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring Arteriors Summer is almost here and I’m already dreaming of warm, lazy days. When Polyvore had a Dream Beach House challenge, I thought about what I envisioned for mine. I would want a beach house set up and decor to be clearly “beach house”, but I wouldn’t want it to be over the top or overdone with the sea shells and anchor prints everywhere. I would love a large, wrap-around porch like the one above with big porch swings – not the small, shaky ones. How amazing do these large cushioned swings look with a view of the ocean? I love the look of…

    Decorating with Ornaments

    When decorating for Christmas, we all know ornaments go on the tree. But you can use ornaments to decorate in places other than on the tree. Today, I’m going to show you what I did with some ornaments that is super simple and has quickly become one of my favorite decorative pieces. It’s basically an assortment of round ornaments in a vase. Yes, it’s as simple as it sounds but the visual payoff is amazing! You don’t need expensive ornaments or anything, I got these from the dollar store. I decided to mix and match the ornaments in terms of size, design, and texture. I did this completely randomly, but…
