Wreath In The New Year

The holidays may have come and gone, but winter is here to stay. Just because it’s time to take the tree and lights down it doesn’t mean you have to get rid of all the festive décor.

I’ve decided to keep my celebration going by keeping a wintery wreath on my door though the chilly season. I got this beautiful (and real!) fir wreath from Bouqs. I love the pinecones and red berries — they have a sweet and inviting vibe. It’s the perfect foundation for me to add some fun personalized touches.

Since we’re just past the craziness of the holidays, I wanted to keep this look sleek and super simple. The new year is the perfect time to declutter, so I want this to be bright, cheery and clean. I went with several strands of fairy lights — which I’m currently obsessed with — and I love the way it glows!

These types of fresh wreaths can last for several weeks, so I know if I want to get craftier with it I can. I’m thinking of adding succulents, fresh flowers, and maybe even some of my costume jewelry. These can all be tied in with floral wire or craft glue.

To keep your wreath looking fresh for as long as possible, Bouqs suggests spraying it with water every other day or so to make sure it doesn’t dry out.

Are you guys going to get in on this winter wreath thing with me? Don’t forget to tag me in your pics!

Tour My Home In Better Homes and Gardens!

When I began building my dream house I’d regularly reference the beautiful homes featured in Better Homes & Gardens. I’d snap pics and tear sheets to include as inspirations for what I would one day call my very own space. To have the tables turned and actually be the one inspiring others with my home is surreal, to say the least. The fact that Lexi and Harley got in on the action makes this feature one of my favorites. Lexi propping her arm up on the arm of the sofa is pretty much the best thing ever, right? She is so hilarious.

Ask Jules: Dorm Room Redo

I haven’t lived in a dorm room, but I have lived on location while filming a movie and on a tour bus while on the road, so I know the importance of making the place you spend time in feel warm and personal.

Hals’ email hit a chord with me — plus it was so funny it made me LOL. I especially loved that she included lots of pictures. I gave her my best advice, but I think it would be awesome if you would jump in and add your own thoughts in the comments!

Hi Jules,

I NEED YOUR HELP!! I attend Nipissing University in North Bay, Canada. I love the school because it’s small and has amazing trails around campus. We even have our own waterfall!

But I have to admit, I sometimes feel like Bella Swan living in Forks. It’s grey, cold and damp. (Still waiting for a cute vampire to show up!) I have attached pictures of my dorm room and I just want some tips on how to make it feel warmer and more like home.

I love boho, plants, fluffy blankets, etc. Your collaboration with Joss and Main was my favourite! I love those kinds of looks but never know how to achieve it. I am super passionate about art; I’ve started to collect one piece every time I travel somewhere new.

Obviously being a student I’m on a tight budget, but I’m in this room constantly studying and reading, and I’m so tired of feeling like I live in a prison cell. Personally, I think the white brick gives off the perfect jail cell vibe. One of the photos includes my beautiful view (the grey skies match the grey buildings… how cute). Also I included a picture of my DIY lamp, where I put all my old tickets, of course it’s a picture of my favourite ones, MOVE LIVE TOUR and a Leafs vs Capitals hockey game where I saw your boy Brooks.

Your Biggest Fan,
Hals xoxo

PS: I love DIYs! I always do the ones you put on your website. I love the lip scrub made out of coffee grounds and the bath bombs were super fun to make! Anyways, hopefully you can help a girl out! Thanks for everything, Jules! Continue Reading

4 Tips To Achieving Your Dream Home Office

A few months ago I asked the girls from E. Interiors to share their tips on designing the perfect space. I love their style and was thrilled to have them back again to talk about their new home office space! Even if you go to school or an office every day, it’s important to have a space in your home where you can sit down and really focus.

The E. Interiors’ office upgrade is so cute — I hope it inspires you to create the work space of your dreams!

How To Care For Cut Tulips

Nothing says spring like having fresh flowers in the house, and right now I’m loving tulips! They come in the most gorgeous colors, and have such a sophisticated, architectural shape they can instantly make any room seem like it’s professionally decorated.

If I’m going to have a beautiful bouquet on display, I want to keep it fresh as long as possible. I did some research on the best way to take care of cut flowers, and discovered it’s a lot less difficult than I thought! Continue Reading

Hey, Jules!!
So I have been seriously dating a mountain man and with all of the fun outdoor adventures comes the (icky) manly decor. Think: deer and elk skulls, bull riding pics, mounted fish, hodgepodge furniture and spurs. I am trying to slowly introduce him to better style (my style is more vintage chic- rustic wood, mirrors, black, white, grey with pops of color). I bought him a log bed for Christmas and need your help with how to blend our styles while still making him comfortable — he asked me to move in.

Thank you so much!!

Twinkle Twinkle Little Yard

I’ve been thinking about creating a special space in my new backyard inspired by some of the beautiful patios I’ve seen. A few of my favorite restaurants feature an outdoor oasis where you are seated beneath strings of dimly lit decorative lights. I like the simplicity of the sparse bulbs and the chill, ethereal vibe they emit. It’s very bohemian but classic at the same time. Below are some of the options I’m considering to create my very own starry-like sky.

I’ve found a few that I’m thinking about – see below! Continue Reading
