Enjoying your space

I'm a little sad Back to Basics is over, so to fill the temporary void that are my Tuesdays, I'd like to introduce a new series!

When we moved, the mister and I had to figure out how to make things work in the space we have, and while we've tried to be more minimalistic, we still have stuff. I want where we live - whether it's a one-bedroom apartment or a huge house - to feel homey, not just a hodgepodge of clutter. I figured this series would be a fun way to share!

And where else to start but the front door?

You know that we recently moved - and since we are no longer in the basement in the back of the building, people can actually walk by and see our front door. My mother-in-law gifted me with a fabulous wreath at my bridal shower, and every year I bring it out in September - it's my own little celebration of fall.

I absolutely love bringing out this wreath. I see it every day when I go to and from work, and no matter what kind of mood I'm in, it brings a smile to my face. I love the colors, but I also love the welcoming feel it gives our place - it's the first thing you see when approaching our home.

We have a wreath for the holiday season as well (fake of course, because of the mister's allergies), but I think we need to start looking for one for the spring and summer. Wreaths make coming home that much more enjoyable.

Do you do any seasonal decorating? Are you as big of a fan of wreaths as I am?

Happy Tuesday!

I definitely do Halloween, Thanksgiving & Christmas decorating and I love it! I'm looking forward to 10/1 so I can put up some cute Halloween stuff on our front porch and around the house for the girls!

Anything that makes a house feel more like a home is a definite plus in my book :)

Love your wreath!

I have never really decorated for the seasons/holidays before but I probably will this year since we finally have our own house! Yay :)

I love wreaths, and I really love that one! I used to make them and I'm going to start again (actually will be posting about that soon) so maybe I can lend some ideas for spring-summer wreaths. I think they're such a great, simple way to liven up a small space. Can't wait to follow your seasonal decoration :)

I don't do any seasonal decorating and this makes me sad. Not even a Christmas tree, but this year I really want to have one.

I like this series! I'm hoping to get some tips. We bought our first house two years ago and we had so many plans to fix it up, but we quickly realized that it takes money to do everything! haha So, we really haven't done much. And it's a tiny house, so I kind of think we've already outgrown it, but really we just have too much crap.

Your wreath is gorgous--way to go MIL! :) And it is so pretty up against the navy door. I can't wait until next Tuesday to see more from this series!

That is a lovely wreath! What a beautiful way to be greeted when you return home each day.

I pretty much only decorate for CHristmas! My mom decorated for every holiday but it is just too much work for me, honestly. Yes, that makes me a grinch... But I do go all out in Christmas!!!

It's so pretty! I'm crazy about seasonal decorating - I just wish I had more stuff! I love that feeling you get when you bring something out for a season and remember what was going on LAST year when you put it out, and the year before that, etc.!

What a beautiful wreath! Love it! Great idea for a series. I've never really decorated my front door, except for Christmas, and sometimes Halloween...but I love the idea of something for every season. I might have to look into that :)
