    Fall is here and I am excited to start a new series on the blog: “Decorating Ideas for your Fireplace Mantel.” This one is for the season but I am most excited for the upcoming Holidays!! {Can we talk about how excited I am to actually have a fireplace now?! And it works!! Fireside cocktails will be a reality, woohoo!} So for my Fall rendition I really wanted to keep it elegant and beautiful because this lies in my formal living room which is a bit more of a traditional space.

    To create the look I picked up a garland of green eucalyptus at Import Flowers and laid it across the center of my mantel. I was all about symmetry so on either end I placed small vases of white honeysuckle berries, then a cluster of mini white pumpkins {here’s a faux version}, and then a Simon Pearce hurricane vase. In the center I placed a variety of my favorite mercury pieces, like these mercury glass candle sticks with tall candles and mercury vases I found at a local shop in Nashville {here is similar}. The finishing touch was sprinkling pinecones {that I found outside!} throughout any of the white space! Be sure to shop the look below!

    Fall is nearly upon us so as I started to plan for my new groupings of Fall-inspired tablescapes, I headed to Pinterest for inspiration. I found myself falling in love with unkept wild flower floral arrangements, rich accent colors like plum and navy, and sweet details like lavender and rosemary bunches placed at each setting. While golds are still more present than silver, copper is also a big accent {I am so glad I finally bought moscow mule mugs!}. Hope these stunning photos help to inspire you as they did for me! Can’t wait to get to work!

    In conjunction with my “Behind the Blog” Feature on Style Me Pretty Living, which shows lots of fun snippets from my office, I wanted to share my official ‘office reveal’ with you guys, so you can find out all the fun details. In creating this space I wanted a room that summed up the FH brand to a tee; beautiful and girly, words of inspiration, lots of accessories and candles, and of course tons of fresh flowers!

    Enter my office and to the left is a Jonathan Alder Jacques Bench filled with cozy pillows {and truthfully a drop off spot for purses!}. On the right hand side is a mini kitchenette with a small fridge packed with Pellegrino and wines, wine glasses, cocktail napkins, and snacks {you never know when a day calls for 5:00 Happy Hour!}. Head straight ahead to find my desk, the Jonathan Adler Channing Desk and White Chippendale Bamboo Chair. I placed a small grey diamond print rug from Target in front of my desk to define a seating area which includes two Modani New Louis Chairs and a marble side table. This is where I have small meetings and talk about upcoming projects. Tough to see is my assistant’s desk which is adjacent to mine – a total DIY project which I spray painted white from Office Depot to match! I have to admit that I am a sucker for fresh flowers and there are ALWAYS fresh ones {usually in pink} on my small table and desk, lately I have been crazy for spray roses, peonies, and english garden roses.

    Behind my desk I placed the open shelves from my NYC living room, filled with all of my favorite books, candles, pictures, and stationery. The one thing with open shelving is you really can’t have clutter on display, so I used the bottom shelves for papers which I hid away in striped cube canvas bins. Love this space? I created a shoppable list below! And don’t miss my tips on how I have grown my business on Style Me Pretty!
