Tag: home decor

When it comes to interior design and decór in our home, my husband and I have… differing tastes. And it’s not just a feminine vs. masculine thing. Brandon leans toward a more modern and sleek style, while I tend to fall for a classic, traditional, Southern look. Think: black leather couch alongside white monogrammed hand towels. However, there’s one decor concept we’re agreed on: our love for displaying pieces that are unique or meaningful to our story. Oh, and college football!

If your house is anything like mine, I’m excited to introduce you to Southern Design today! Because, after showing Brandon their collection, we actually picked out a few of the same pieces that we’d love to hang in our home. It’s a minor miracle, friends. We already have a spot for this sign!

Southern Design offers personalize-able home decor that both you and your beau can agree on. Their designs make it easy to incorporate collegiate or home state pride pieces into your home without sacrificing style, something that’s tricky to do. I also love that their products are made in America!

Though we may not be wine connoisseurs ourselves, I am bookmarking their custom cork shadow box. Come Christmastime, I’ll be ready to check my sister-in-law off my list!

Tel me! Do you and your darling share the same style or are you, too, learning to compromise when it comes to home decorating?

In news that will surprise no one, the Southern Weddings ladies are die-hard devotees of Joanna and Chip :) (It’s no secret that we’re dying to have them in our next issue — how perfect would it be if they were a part of our tenth anniversary volume??) We’ve been eagerly anticipating Fixer Upper Season 4 for months, and so in honor of the first episode kicking off tomorrow, we thought we’d take a walk down memory lane with a few of our favorite houses from Season 3! I’d love to hear your favorites in the comments, too!

I loved all of the arches — in the doorways, in the built-in cabinets — in the Brick House. (Photo by Rachel Whyte)

There was lots to love about the Magnolia House episode, from the goal for the property (a bed and breakfast), that Chip and Jo were the clients, and that so many of the details were chosen to mimic the farm house. The reveal to their parents at the end of the episode was so sweet, too!!

One of the most unique Fixer Uppers ever, the Barndominium gave new meaning to the “modern farmhouse” aesthetic. I loved the 17-foot dining table and all of the sleek sliding barn doors! (Photos by Rachel Whyte and Jeff Jones)

The School House episode included one of my favorite exterior transformations in season three — the now famous German Schmear. (Photo by Rachel Whyte)

Speaking of great exterior transformations… the Whyte’s house, Chip 2.0, was certainly one for the books, as well! That little scalloped table, though, was the detail that really captured my heart. Rachel joined us on Southern Newlywed a few months ago to share behind-the-scenes scoop from their Fixer Upper experience and tons of details on their decor, so be sure to check out that post if you’re a Fixer Upper fan! (Photo by Rachel Whyte)

The Beanstalk Bungalow was one of my all-around favorites from this season. I loved the sweet blue, white, and green palette; the exterior (again! Jo killed it last season on the exteriors!); the brick pavers in the sunroom; and the cottage-feeling master bedroom, ringed with windows.

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, the 3 Little Pigs house had another fantastic exterior transformation! I also loved the raw brick chimney in the open floor plan kitchen/dining room. (Photos by Rachel Whyte)

I bet Jess in our office (a yellow lover!) was particularly fond of the Chicken House. I loved the cheery color palette and fun wallpaper, too! (Photo by Rachel Whyte)

Finally, the Carriage House. There was just something so cozy about this little house (for the caretakers of the Magnolia House), and the couple who was moving in seemed so sweet.

Fixer Upper Season 4 premieres on HGTV at 9/8CT November 29!

Any favorites, friends? Anyone having a watch party tomorrow night? :)

Our hope for you is that your wedding day is not only one of the happiest in your life, but a touchstone that reminds you of the importance and sacredness of your marriage. When I look at photos or mementos from my wedding, I immediately am brought back to the promises I made, the happiness I felt, and the incredible warmth of our family and friends’ support. Of course, I also love having wedding mementos around because I chose my wedding details incredibly carefully, and am still a bit obsessed with our photos! :)

But plastering your walls with your smiling faces, even if beautiful, gets old after the seventeenth framed photo. So today, we wanted to share three more creative ways you can remember your wedding in your home, with the help of our friends at Framebridge!

P.S. Big hugs to Callie of Nancy Ray Photography for these photos, and keep reading for a discount code!

Idea No. 1: Frame special paper pieces like your wedding invitation. Lisa’s classic calligraphy wedding invitation looks beautiful in Framebridge’s silver Newport frame. Says Lisa, “Dave already jokes that our home is a shrine to our wedding, so I like that a framed invitation is a more subtle nod.” It looks right at home on their mantel, but would work equally well in a gallery wall, hallway, or bedroom. See more from Lisa’s wedding here.

Idea No. 2: Frame your wedding mementos. Callie is one of our all-time most-beloved brides (see her Charleston wedding here!), so we thought it would be fun to loop back with her for this feature. She opted to frame several of her wedding details, including her invitation envelope, her monogrammed cocktail napkins, a handkerchief, and a scripture card, then sprinkle them throughout her house. They’d look beautiful in a gallery wall, too! We used several gold Framebridge frames, including Richmond and Concord, for the collection. Framebridge’s “float framing” option is perfect for unique pieces like these, as it allows an object of almost any shape and size to be beautifully preserved.

Idea No. 3: Frame your wedding vows. We asked our Blue Ribbon Vendor Simply Jessica Marie to watercolor our wedding vows onto 16×20 sheets of paper, then framed them in Framebridge’s classic gold Richmond frame. The vows turned out more beautifully than I could have imagined (thank you, Jessica!), and they feel like the perfect artwork for the spot where we lay our heads. I love being reminded of our promises first thing in the morning and last thing at night!
